The polyacrylamide market in 2017-2020

Based on product type, the report categorizes the global polyacrylamide market into the following segments:

·                                 Anionic polyacrylamide

·                                 Cationic polyacrylamide

·                                 Non-ionic polyacrylamide

Anionic polyacrylamide

Anionic polyacrylamides carry a negative charge, which makes them a suitable option to pick positively charged particles such as clay and sand. They are mainly used in dust control, crop dusting, furrow irrigation, hydro-seeding,construction projects, landscaping, and mining applications. Anionic polyacrylamide compounds show no aquatic toxicity, which makes them safe for use in soil and water conservation,” says Ajay Adikari, one of the lead analysts at Technavio for plastics, polymers and elastomers research.

Anionic polyacrylamides are also used in mining and metallurgy applications, where they promote solid-liquid separation and reduce environmental pollution and the overall production cost. In the coal industry, anionic polyacrylamides are used as flocculants and coagulants to improve the separation of coal from impurities. Additionally, these compounds are also used as thickening agents in the petroleum, cosmetics, and paper and textile pulp industries, and the paper industry where they are used as retention aids and dry strength agents. These applications will significantly drive the market in the forecast period.

Cationic polyacrylamide

Cationic polyacrylamides carry a positive charge and can attract and bind to negatively charged particles such as organic waste materials. This makes them suitable to be used in animal waste treatmentwastewater plants, and purification of drinking water. It also finds applications in mining and paper processing industries. Since these compounds are hydrophilic in nature, they are soluble in water but not soluble in organic solvents, which makes them suitable for use in breweries and alcohol, sugar, monosodium glutamate, and meat manufacturing companies.

Cationic polyacrylamide is also used in the paper industry as an additive to aid in retention and enhances the strength of the paper. It also works as an effective dispersant in paper production. It also finds application in the treatment of textile printing and dyeing wastewater due to the presence of negatively charged particles in this wastewater.

Non-ionic polyacrylamide

Non-ionic polyacrylamides are high molecular weight polymer compounds with low ion exponent. These non-ionic compounds are hydrophilic in nature and thus can effortlessly dissolve in water. They are commonly used in flocculation, thickening, film forming, dispersal, bonding, and stabilizing. These polyacrylamides are predominantly used in the treatment of wastewater, municipal sewage, and mineral ore processing,” says Ajay.

In coal washing, non-ionic polyacrylamide compounds are used in the separation of coal and sedimentation of coal dust and coal slurry. These compounds help enhance recovery rates of coal dust particles and improve the filtration rate. Also, since it is safe on aquatic flora and fauna, it can be used in the treatment of acidic wastewater and sewage. The applications in these industries will drive market segment through the forecast period.
