The global water desalination market was valued at USD 13.31 billion in 2016 and is expected to register robust growth owing to rise in demand for clean water, increasing population and disposable income of the people in the developing economies. Growing demand for a clean source for direct consumption as well as numerous industrial applications is expected to drive the demand for filtration technologies over the next few years.
The global liquid filtration market is expected to reach USD 31.74 billion over the forecast period. The market is expected to witness a substantial growth due to the increasing contamination of ground as well as surface water.
Hydrochloric acid is an important chlorine compound and is majorly produced as a byproduct in the manufacturing of a host of organic chemicals. Over 40 processes generate hydrochloric acid as a byproduct and it is consumed in over a 100 processes. Over two third of the global HCL consumption is in the manufacturing of ethylene dichloride (EDC) and the remaining is the manufacturing of inorganic compounds. Most of the HCL is captively consumed by companies for further organic product manufacturing.
