Corrosion inhibitor is a chemical compound when added to a liquid gas, decreases the corrosion rate of a material, that comes into contact with any liquid. The effectiveness of a corrosion inhibitor depends upon fluid composition, quantity of water and flow regime. Corrosion inhibitor maybe added to water to stop leaching of lead or copper from pipes.

Corrosion inhibitors will be in higher demand as the water treatment market expands. Furthermore, the market is predicted to rise as the use of corrosion inhibitors for various steel and iron equipment, mostly used in the construction industry, grows. When corrosion inhibitors are employed to treat the insides of municipal pipelines, many water treatment plant managers find that they don’t corrode as much. Many companies in the oil and gas industry can benefit from corrosion inhibitors by reusing wastewater from other industries. One of these is the growing demand for ecologically friendly corrosion inhibitors over more traditional ones in industries all over the world.

Recent developments

Market dynamics

Market Drivers

Corrosion inhibitors are in high demand in the water treatment industry. In fact, dramatic growth in the water treatment industry has driven enormous demand (and thus growth) in the corrosion inhibitors industry. Fresh and clean drinking water is becoming increasingly scarce around the world. This, combined with government restrictions on how industries can dispose of their wastewater, is driving tremendous growth in the corrosion inhibitors industry.

Many water treatment plant managers discover that using corrosion inhibitors to treat the insides of municipal pipes reduces corrosion. Corrosion inhibitors can assist many oil and gas companies in reusing wastewater from other industries.

Market Opportunities

In the global corrosion inhibitors industry, there are numerous opportunities. One of these is the growing preference for environmentally friendly corrosion inhibitors over more traditional ones in industries all over the world.
