According to the research report titled ‘Middle East Antiscalant Market Analysis, 2020’, available with Market Study Report LLC, Middle East antiscalant market is expected to register a CAGR of 5% during 2020-2025.
Middle East antiscalant market growth is primarily driven by increasing scarcity of groundwater and subsequent rise in demand for desalination plants across the region. As per World Health Organization (WHO), Middle East has less than 0.6% of total freshwater resources, hence, countries in this region are establishing various water treatment plants and desalination plants to fulfill the surging water demands.

Furthermore, Middle East produces more than 40% of the world's crude oil annually, which requires a large amount of water for the purification process. In addition, growing necessity towards careful utilization of water due an influx of expatriates is contributing to Middle East antiscalant market expansion.
Notably, antiscalants are added to feed water before it flows through the reverse osmosis (RO) membrane. This prevents scale formation by delaying reaction time between calcium and magnesium, and thus allows seamless purification of water by RO systems.
Based on type, Middle East antiscalant market is categorized into fluoride, sulphate, phosphate, carbonate, and others (magnesium hydroxide, silica, etc.). Sulphate segment accounted for a major portion of the industry share in 2019 and is expected to grow with a CAGR of 4.5% through 2025.
Moving on to method type, the market is divided into dispersion, crystal modification, and threshold inhibition. Threshold inhibition segment is anticipated to lead the industry growth over the forecast timeframe, as it is the most effective approach to monitor scale formation. It interacts with crystal nucleation sites chemically and significantly decreases crystal growth rates. Growing usage of this method in rising oil & gas industry of the Middle East region is boosting the segmental growth.
As per feed water, Middle East antiscalant industry is classified into brackish and sea. Industries and desalination plants that are close to coastal areas often favor seawater, while brackish water is typically preferred by end users who are located centrally or far from seawater source. Inclination towards seawater is due to depleting water resources for desalination and other industrial activities. Compared to brackish water, the dosage for antiscalants is lower in seawater since the content of sulphate and carbonate is lower.
Considering end user scope, the industry is split into chemical industry, power generation, water treatment, metal & mining, oil & gas, and others (pulp & paper, food & beverage, etc.). Water treatment and oil & gas segments held significant portion of Middle East antiscalant industry share in 2019 and are likely to witness modest gains in the coming years.
