Polyacrylamide is an important polymer having various end user applications. Key raw materials used in the production of polyacrylamide are acrylamide copolymers and catalysts. The growing environmental concerns regarding both industrial and municipal waste water as well as rapid economic growth in Asia Pacific is expected to remain the major driving force for the polyacrylamide market. Volatile raw material prices are expected to be a key challenge for market participants.
Anionic and cationic were the predominant polyacrylamide product segments, accounting for over 70% of total demand in 2012. Due to its ionic characteristics polyacrylamide is used in various waste water treatment applications. Polyacrylamide used in petroleum applications is anticipated to be the major growth market over the next few years. Growing mining activities across the globe are anticipated to increase the demand for polyacrylamide used in mining. Similar surge in demand is expected to be witnessed from shale gas extraction facilities where polyacrylamide is used as a friction reducer for economical oil recovery.
