Heavy Metal Precipitants Market: Overview
The heavy metal precipitants are used for wastewater treatment to remove metal pollutants. The metal pollutants are removed from the wastewater by chemical precipitation. This precipitation process is characterized by the solubility of the metal which is to be removed. Heavy metal precipitants are present in industrial wastewater. This wastewater consist of metals such as copper, nickel, mercury, cadmium, zinc, and lead. Precipitants are formed by adding insoluble chemicals, such as sulfide, carbonate ions, and hydroxide, to wastewater, which then can be removed easily.

Heavy Metal Precipitants Market: Drivers & Restraints
Stringent government rules and regulations for wastewater discharge from manufacturing plants, municipal applications, and industries drive the heavy metal precipitants market. Wastewater discharged from the industries are harmful for water bodies. Water bodies are getting adversely affected due to the discharge of heavy metal wastewater into the seas and oceans. Intake of these metals kill fish and reduce their reproduction rate. The dead fish create water pollution. Hence, governments across the globe have introduced strict law against water discharge. This, in turn, is projected to drive the global heavy metal precipitants market. However, chemicals used to remove heavy metals are costly. Furthermore, lack of awareness regarding the correct use of heavy metal precipitants is adversely affecting the market. Therefore, lack of awareness regarding the proper use of heavy metal precipitants is a major restrain of the market.
Heavy Metal Precipitants Market: Key Segments
Based on application, the heavy metal precipitants market can be divided into automotive, mining, chemicals, electronics, electroplating, iron and steel manufacturing industries, leather factories, metal processing, , printing factories, power stations, refineries of non-ferrous metals, solvent incinerators, and waste incineration facilities. The heavy metal precipitants are widely used in these applications, as these are highly efficient, and can be used across many industries, can be used with traditional chemicals, environment friendly, and ready to use.

Based on the chemicals used, the heavy metal precipitants can be carried out by using hydroxide, carbonate or sulphide. Hydroxide precipitant was widely used as it was inexpensive. Most of the acidic heavy metal water is neutralized by adding alkaline solutions. Neutralizing agents, such as caustic soda or lime milk, are used as precipitants in purification processes.
Heavy Metal Precipitants Market: Regional Outlook
In terms of geography, the heavy metal precipitants market can be segregated into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. Demand for heavy metal precipitants is high in North America.
