Chlorine Water Disinfectant Market size is forecast to reach $4.1 billion by 2025, after growing at a CAGR of 3.2% during 2020-2025,owning to increasing consumption of water, increasing industrial activities and growth in population across the globe. Chlorine disinfectants are used to kill or deactivate pathogenic microorganisms which are present in water and can be transmitted through drinking water distribution system, causing waterborne disease. Therefore, in order to combat waterborne diseases, different disinfection methods are used to inactivate pathogens. Along with other water treatment processes such as coagulation, sedimentation, and filtration, chlorine disinfectant is used to provide water that is safe for human consumption.
Chlorine Type – Segment Analysis
Sodium hypochlorite held the largest share in the chlorine water disinfectant market in 2019. As compared to other chlorine type, sodium hypochlorite is the easiest to handle. The amount of sodium hypochlorite required for water treatment is much less than the other forms of chlorine. Therefore, owning to these factors sodium hypochlorite dominated the chlorine water disinfectant market in 2019. Sodium hypochlorite is extremely corrosive and must be stored in a cool, dark, and dry place. Sodium hypochlorite decomposes naturally, therefore it cannot be stored for more than one month at a time.

Application – Segment Analysis
Municipal held the largest share in the Chlorine Water Disinfectant market in 2019 and is growing at a CAGR of 3.9%, owning to growing use of chlorine disinfectant in drinking water, swimming pools, well water treatment and others. As compared to other disinfectants chlorine is inexpensive yet effective in disinfecting many contaminants. It is also easy to implement, when compared to other water treatment methods. It is an effective method of water treatment as it can eliminate an overload of pathogens relatively quickly. Therefore, owning to these factors it is widely used in municipal industries.
Geography – Segment Analysis
North America held the largest share in the Chlorine Water Disinfectant market in 2019, up to 28%, owing to stringent government regulations, increasing investment in the industrial sector, growing adoption of chlorine treated water, and rising awareness among consumers about the adverse impacts of pollutants. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) allows drinking water treatment plants to use chlorine to disinfect drinking water. Therefore, it is widely consumed by the water treatment plants. The rise in number of water treatment plants and increasing onsite water-reuse by various industries in driving chlorine water disinfectant market growth in the region.
Drivers – Chlorine Water Disinfectant Market
Unlike other disinfection methods such as ozonation and ultraviolet radiation, chlorination can provide a residual to reduce the chance of pathogen regrowth in water storage tanks or within the water distribution system. At times, distribution systems can be at a reasonable distance from the storage tanks, and pathogens can re-grow in dead end parts or where water is not used, if a sufficient residual of chlorine is not maintained in the treated water sent for consumption. This results in poor water quality as well as slime and biofilms in the distribution systems. Therefore, many government environmental bodies have set guidelines or standards for the amount of chlorine residual that must be present at all points in the system. For instance, in province such as Alberta, and Nova Scotia the amount of chlorine residual is 0.2mg/L to 4.0mg/L, whereas in Manitoba, and Ontario is less than 0.5mg/L. Therefore, these regulations are supporting chlorine water disinfectant market growth.
Growing demand for clean water.
With growing population and rapid industrialization in both developed and emerging markets, demand for fresh and safe water has gained traction. Moreover, the increasing requirement of clean water in power plants, metal and mining, pulp and paper, oil and gas, and chemical processing industries has increased the demand for chlorine disinfectant. The limited availability of potable water has given rise to the recycling of wastewater which is creating need for water treatment plants which in turn is driving chlorine water disinfectant market.

Challenges – Chlorine Water Disinfectant Market
Formation of unwanted byproducts.
Chlorine can react with different substances. There may be a variety of different impurities in raw water that react with the added chlorine, resulting in an increase in demand for chlorine. As a consequence, it would need to add more chlorine for the same inactivation level. Some major impurities in water may include, dissolved iron, hydrogen sulphide, bromine, ammonia, nitrogen dioxide and organic matter. In certain cases, the effect of chlorine reaction with impurities may improve the water quality, whereas in other cases, the chlorine-impurity reactions may produce unnecessary side products that are harmful to human health such as trihalomethanes, which causes cancer. Therefore, this factor may restrain market growth.
Technology launches, acquisitions and R&D activities are key strategies adopted by players in the Chlorine Water Disinfectant Market. In 2019, the market of Chlorine Water Disinfectant Market has been consolidated by the top five players accounting for xx% of the share. Major players in the Chlorine Water Disinfectant market are BASF SE, Ecolab Inc, Kemira OYJ, Solenis LLC, Akzo Nobel N.V., DuPont, Bayer AG and Baker Hughes Incorporated, among others.
The demand for chlorine water treatment in Asia Pacific region increasing at a faster rate during the forecast period, owning to rapid increase in the population coupled with scarcity in the pure and clean drinking water in countries such as India, China and others.
Increasing environmental and climatic concerns, and aging infrastructure are the factors expected to boost the chlorine water disinfectant market during the forecast period.
Chlorination has been proven to be very effective against bacteria and viruses. However, it cannot disinfect all waterborne pathogens. Certain pathogens, such as protozoan cysts, are resistant to the effects of chlorine. Therefore, this factor may hamper market growth during the forecast period.
