Industrial boilers and steam raising plants are utilized extensively in several manufacturing, commercial and industrial processes. Boiler water pH and alkalinity levels are the most important issues that affect the maintenance and operation of industrial boiler systems. Alkalinity is a measurement of water’s ability to neutralize acids. It also measures the buffering capacity of water to resist changes in Ph upon the addition of acids and bases. In order to ensure that proper water conditions are maintained at all times, boiler systems must be well maintained to operate at optimum efficiency. This can be achieved by carefully selecting alkalinity control chemicals. Alkalinity control chemicals are basically concentrated alkaline solutions designed to regulate the alkalinity of boiler water. Alkalinity control chemicals also prevent corrosion and assist in the conversion of hard scale deposits to soft and non-sticking mud. These chemicals possess various advantages; they are convenient and ready to use, can be mixed with other treatment chemicals and do not release carbon dioxide, as in the case of soda ash.
It is essential to utilize chemical treatments for water as impurities can affect the necessary parts and accessories of boilers. With the rising utilization of alkalinity control chemicals, their demand is estimated to grow significantly across various industries over the forecast period. Alkalinity control chemicals are the most convenient liquid treatments that provide basic alkalinity for scale control and optimum corrosion. Further, they can be utilized as neutralisers after acid cleaning operations in different systems.

Global Alkalinity Control Chemicals Market: Dynamics
In order to ensure the suitable working of equipment in industries, such as boilers and cooling systems, the water feed is treated with various agents and chemicals, which leads to optimized steam generation. The quality of water with respect to alkalinity level differs with respect to the source feed. Further, growing demand for boilers and other equipment in industrial, commercial and manufacturing sectors propels a rise in the demand for alkalinity control chemicals. This, in turn, pushes growth of the global alkalinity control chemicals market over the forecast period.
Moreover, stricter regulations are being put by various governmental regulatory authorities on the utilization and manufacturing of boilers in order to ensure their controlled and safe operation. Regulatory authorities perform regular inspection activities to ensure healthy operating conditions in boilers, making it mandatory for operators to keep them safe. Alkalinity control chemicals also help in increasing the life of equipment by preventing them from corrosion. On the other hand, significant costs and availability of alternative chemicals are key factors restraining growth of the alkalinity control chemicals market over the forecast period.
Global Alkalinity Control Chemicals Market: Region-wise Outlook
On the basis of geography, key manufacturers of alkalinity control chemicals are based in developed economies, including the U.S. and Germany. Attributing to rapid industrialization and rising demand for boilers from the industrial sector in India and China, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to witness a boost in the demand for alkalinity control chemicals. The demand for alkalinity control chemicals is on the slower side in the Middle East & Africa and Latin America region.
