Global Water Retention Agent Market, 2014-2024: By Type (Polyacrylamide, Sodium Polyacrylate, and Starch Grafted Acrylate), and By Application (Soil Improvement, Water Retention and Drought Resistance, Breeding and Seedling Protection, and Other)
Water retention agent is a unique organic polymer with a three-dimensional network structure and contains a large number of strong hydrophilic groups, which has strong water absorption capacity. Water absorption rate varies widely depending on the particle size, strength after high water absorbent, a certain shape, easy to collapse, to soil, water reversibility good absorption. Super absorbent polymer mixed with ground 5 to 15 centimeters, so there is more emphasis on the international water absorbency at elevated pressure. According to particle size, polyacrylamide-water absorption ratio around 150-300.
Water retention agent can be categories by type into polyacrylamide, sodium polyacrylate, and starch grafted acrylate. Acrylamide is acrylic salt polymer conjugates included polypropylene acyl amine, sodium polyacrylate potassium, ammonium polyacrylate, and polyacrylic acid. Polyacrylamide is a white granular crystal shape of polyacrylamide. It is composed mainly with acrylamide 65%-66%, acrylic potassium 23%-24%, water 8%-10%, and crosslinking agent's 0.5%-1.0%. Water retention agent has wide range of application in soil improvement, water retention and drought resistance, breeding and seedling protection, and other. These agents are widely used in agriculture, forestry, horticulture, building materials. In industry can be widely used in petroleum, chemical, cables, paper, sensors, fire-fighting appliances, fiber products, cosmetics, toys, food preservation, expansion, and so on. These agents mainly used by farmers in developed countries for very thirsty crops and/or in areas with difficult conditions (irregular water resources, poor soil quality).It offered so many advantages including controls erosion, deterioration and desertification of soils by replanting arid areas, decompacts and improves the porosity of soils and composts, limits the leaching of fertilizers and surface water pollution, reduces the harmful effects of salinity or unhygienic conditions of wastewater used for irrigation, optimizes the plant's resistance to diseases and increases production volumes in terms of quantity and quality.
The global water retention agent research report sheds light on the market circumstances by carrying out primary and secondary research for more than 320 hours. As per the report, the global water retention agent market is growing at a fast pace and increasing its geographical footprint rapidly. The global water retention agent market is valued at US $ xxx million dollars in 2019 which is forecast to grow at CAGR of xx% and reach a massive US $ xxx million dollars by the end of 2024 in value.
The growth is comparatively higher in North America region due expansion of industries and rising population the resources of fresh water decline which leads to increase the consumption of water retention agent in agriculture industry. The major growth driver for water retention agent market is trends towards saving the fresh water and increase the adoption of precision farming. Extensive use in soil improvement is expected drive the growth of and water retention agent market globally. In addition, maintenance of grass in summer season is further augmenting demand of water retention agent globally.
The lack of awareness of water retention agent is the impediment to the global water retention agent market growth.
Water retention agent enjoy wide usage across all major regions in the world including Europe, APAC, North America, Middle East, Africa, and South America. These regions serve large number of manufacturers and supplier and are hence responsible for the growth of water retention agent market globally.
