Category : Chemicals and Materials | Delivery Format : PDF | Status: Forthcoming | Report ID : ARC281

Ultrapure water also abbreviated as UPW is a type of water which meets the highest standards of purity. It is an attribute generally achieved by eliminating all the contaminants present in the water. Contaminants are present in the form of particulate matter or dissolved impurities, organic or inorganic compounds as well as various dissolved gases which may be inert or reactive. Also, known as high purity water, ultrapure water is achieved through strict and stringent purification process which includes a multiple number of stages. Generally, three major stages are involved to obtain ultrapure water - namely primary stage, pretreatment stage and polishing stage. The pretreatment stage furnishes purified water whereas the primary stage further purifies it and in the end the polishing stage uses the process of electro-deionization or ion exchange resins to furnish the final ultrapure water.

The global semiconductor industry, which is basically governed by various stringent standards is one of the largest consumers of ultrapure water across the globe. A large number of operations in the global semiconductor industry are performed in clean room environments where the employment of ultrapure water is mandatory. Ultrapure water is a crucial part of all those processes such as itching and wafer cleaning. Significant expansion in the semiconductor and electronics industry is one of the key factors which is anticipated to act as a high impact growth driver in the global ultrapure water market. The increasing usage of ultrapure water, especially in power generation facilities, accounts for a significant demand across the globe, thus driving the growth of global ultrapure water market. In addition, accurate estimation of the demand for ultrapure water is one of the key challenges hampering the growth of global ultrapure water market. The sluggish economic scenario in several economies over the past few years has erupted the overall investment plans in various industrial projects which is another key factor posing challenges for the growth of ultrapure water market.

The global ultrapure water market can be segmented on the basis of equipment, application, end-use industry and region. On the basis of equipment, the global ultrapure water market can be segmented into filtration, consumables and aftermarket. On the basis of application, the global ultrapure water market can be segmented into washing fluid and process weed. Based on end-use industry, the market can be categorized into flat panel display, semiconductors, pharmaceuticals, coal fired power, gas turbine power and other. On the basis of region, the global ultrapure water market can be segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Asia-Pacific. The demand in Asia-Pacific is expected to be the major driving factor for the growth of global ultrapure water market. China is anticipated to account for the largest share and lead the overall demand for ultrapure water owing to the increasing industrial production over the last few years. The markets in other developing countries such as Brazil, Russia, Poland, Indonesia, New Zealand, Argentina and India among others are also anticipated to grow rapidly throughout the forecast period.

Major players operating in the global ultrapure water market are focusing on some key market strategies such as mergers and acquisitions to keep hold in the ever competitive market. Moreover, they are concentrating on collaborating with local players to increase their market reach as well as strengthen their goodwill in the global market. Some of the key players involved in the supply of ultrapure water market include Dow Water & Process Solutions, GE Water and Process Technologies Inc. and Pall Corporation among others.
