Drivers and Restraints
Innovative Synthesis Technique Permits the Expansion of Thermally Steady Polymer
The conservative soluble polymer’s heat resistance is insufficient for current executions that demand robust thermal steadiness during processing under harsh conditions. For example, in October 2020, a group of scientists based in the U.S. and Japan publicized their research on water-soluble polymers manufactured from fresh amino acids that can repel high heat and temperatures.
Polymers with exceptionally high heat steadiness, such as polyimides, on the other hand, contain lesser water solubility. The examination study’s emphasis was to exhibit how to design a molecular building block that encourages high water-solubility in polyimides that too without terminating the polymer support, which is a pioneering method for polymer engineering.
Polyimides with extraordinarily great water solubility are manufactured, and treated polymers have exceptional thermomechanical and optical characteristics, as per the conclusions of the experimentations. The synthesized polymers are resources with widespread operations in biomedical materials, electronics, special adhesives, specific coatings, and paints. These factors are likely to promote the water-soluble polymer market growth during the forecast period.
Asia Pacific region held the maximum water-soluble polymer market share and is anticipated to be navigated by increasing demand from the sewage water management industry. The municipal and industrialized wastewater treatment segment is projected to inflate, owing to increasing environmental apprehensions and funds from private and administrative investors to avoid environmental destruction.
North America is anticipated to observe substantial growth owing to growing demand from the oil & gas industry. The rising demand for water-soluble polymers in the oil & gas industry is mostly for good completion, drilling, production, and improved oil recovery courses.
Europe is estimated to display a noteworthy growth rate during the forecast period. The region’s growth is credited with increasing demand from the detergent and personnel care product industry. Profitable liquid washing cleaners and liquefied dishwashing goods make use of water-soluble polymers as additives.
Novel Product Launch as Vital Business Approach by Important Players to Spur Growth
The market is extremely competitive with principal players involved in novel product invention, fresh research & development projects, mergers, and procurement to encompass production volumes, product collection extension, and form industry development worldwide.
For example, in June 2021, Infinite Material Solutions introduced a novel water-soluble thermoplastic for 3D-printed microporous fragments.
- June 2021: Kemira has set up novel, state-of-the-art production divisions for combination polymers and bio acrylamide monomers in Mobile, Alabama. This investment by Kemira, done in extended size, empowers the company to suffice the incessantly surging demand for polyacrylamide polymers.
