Water soluble polymers are polymers that can be diluted in water, with or without the assistance of co solvents and neutralizing agents, to form transparent solutions. Water soluble polymers based on the raw materials are divided into synthetic, semi-synthetic and natural polymers. Synthetic polymers are produced by the polymerization of monomers synthesized from petroleum or natural gas. Semi-synthetic polymers are derived by chemically modifying natural organic materials such as cellulose. Natural polymers include microbial, plant and animal derivatives.
Water soluble polymers perform functions like binding, coagulating, dispersing, suspending, stabilizing, film forming, flocculating, lubrication and friction reduction, thickening, gelling etc. Different types of water soluble polymers are polyacrylamide, guar gum, polyvinyl alcohol, casein, gelatin, polyacrylic acid and others including polysaccharides, PVP, PEG, polyamines and quaternary ammonium compounds.
The important areas of applications of water soluble polymers include cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, plasma substitute, sewage treatment, detergents, and stabilizing agents in the production of commodity plastics, rheology modifiers in the various processes for petroleum, textile, paper, and latex coatings production.The growth of water treatment industry is the major driver for water soluble polymers in the forecasted period.
Industries are investing in emerging regions like Asia Pacific which is driving the demand for global water soluble polymer market. This region experience major demand for food, personal care products and pharmaceuticals. Guar gums are majorly produced by Asia Pacific countries such as India, Pakistan, etc. Major companies in the global water soluble polymers market are Arkema SA, Ashland Inc., DuPont, LG Chem, The Dow Chemical Company, Nitta Gelatin Inc., BASF SE, SNF SAS and Kuraray Group.
