Ion Exchange Resins Market - Overview

Ion exchange resins are primarily used in water and waste water treatment. North America accounted for a major share of the global ion exchange resins market in 2017. Ion exchange resins such as strong acid cation exchange resins, weak acid cation exchange resins, strong base anion exchange resins, weak base anion exchange resins, and mixed bed resins are used in numerous end-user industries such as chemical, pharmaceutical, nuclear, food & beverages, and power generation. Prices of ion exchange resins such as adsorbent resins are comparatively high. The global ion exchange resins market is consolidated, as top four manufacturers accounted for nearly 50% of the market share in 2017.

Increase in the demand for municipal and industrial water treatment is one of the driving factors for the global ion exchange resins market. Also, increase in the demand for ion exchange resins in food processing applications for eliminating contaminants is among the important factors responsible for growth of the ion exchange resins market. Industrial and municipal water treatment are major end-use applications of ion exchange resins. This is largely due to rapid industrialization, especially in regions such as Asia Pacific, which leads to the rising demand for industrial water. Increase in water pollution in some of the major regions such as Asia Pacific is driving the need for water treatment technologies.
