Aquapak Polymers to Launch a Complete Range of Water Soluble Polymers

United Kingdom: Aquapak Polymers, a United Kingdom based manufacturers of polymers, has launched a series of water soluble and biodegradable polymers. The company has taken five years and invested as much as USD5.2 million to develop the portfolio. The polymers are based on a patented technology and this technology can be a trend setter for the future polymers and plastics industry globally. The firm is in the middle of constructing a 5,500-square-meter factory, which would have around 70 employees and would become operational in early 2017. The factory would produce 30,000 metric tons of pellets used in the new film annually. These polymers are water soluble, fully recyclable, biodegradable, compostable, completely harmless in marine environments. Also, the water soluble polymers can be used for multiple applications, have excellent barrier properties, anti-static and impermeable to most solvents, oils and gas.

TechSci Research depicts that the new technology and the new product portfolio of water soluble polymers is one of its kind. As the polymers are suitable for almost every standard polyethylene equipment, it would easily substitute many of the existing industry standard materials at equivalent cost. Moreover, its multiple functionalities and applicability for different end user industries would aid to the growth of water soluble polymers market in the country and globally.

According to the recently published report by TechSci Research, “US Water Soluble Polymers Market By Type (Polyacrylamide, Guar Gum, Polyvinyl Alcohol etc.), By End Use Industry (Water Treatment, Food Processing, Enhanced Oil Recovery etc.), By Region, Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2011-2025”,  Water soluble polymers market in United States is valued at around USD5.5 billion and is expected to witness steady growth through 2025 on account of growing use of shale gas reserves in the region with increased use of hydraulic fracturing and drilling techniques, rising awareness about environmental concerns and the use of coagulants and flocculants for water treatment along with rising demand from food & beverage processing industries in United States. Moreover, use of natural food additives, increasing use of cosmetics and personal care products coupled with growing pharmaceuticals sector and rising awareness about disposable waste management with developing trends of film packaging and green packaging among individuals are the factors leading to increased use of different types of water soluble polymers and are set to drive the water soluble polymers market in United States through 2025.
