Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

CHPTAC Market size is expected to cross USD 475 Million by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of CHPTAC was over USD 252 Million. CHPTAC is used as a major raw material for the manufacture of Cationic Guar gum, which is often used in textile chemicals. In textile production processes, cationic guar gum is used for sizing, printing, and finishing. The demand for textiles chemicals and CHPTAC is also being driven by the increasing textile sector, especially in emerging economies. By 2022, that amount had increased to about 113.8 million metric tons, nearly quadrupling. The manufacturing volume of natural fibers, such as cotton and wool, was 25.2 million metric tons, while the remaining 87.6 million metric tons were produced by chemical fibers.

Furthermore, the etherification process was successfully modified by using CHPTAC for the cationization of cellulose in textile fibers and other polysaccharides, such as agarose or the polysaccharide backbone of tamarind kernels, among others, as a result of improvements and analyses of paper properties. The growing end-use industries are expected to increase demand for CHPTAC during the projection period.

CHPTAC Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Increasingly Used in Water Treatment- CHPTACs are widely used for the removal of contamination in water treatment facilities. For wastewater treatment in urbanized and emerging countries, such as the US or China, Cationic Modified Flocculent CHP is mostly preferred. China invested USD 81.6 billion in its municipal sewage system between 2015 and 2020, including new sewage treatment facilities, sewage pipeline construction and maintenance, rainwater sewage diversion systems, sludge mitigation, reclaimed water, and first treatment, according to the Chinese National Bureau of Statistics. China is planning to build or improve 80,000 km of sewer collection and treatment networks over the period from 2021 to 2025, in order to increase its capacity by 20 million cubic meters per day. CHPTAC facilitates the removal of impurities and suspended particulates, thereby improving the clarity of water. Demand for CHPTAC is expected to grow in the water treatment sector due to rising water pollution and increasing demand for effective water treatment solutions. This is why an increase in the use of CHPTAC in wastewater treatment plants is expected to fuel market expansion.
  • Growing Demand in Paper Industry- CHPTAC is an important client of the paper industry. In the paper industry, its use as a cationic starch modifier has resulted in an increase of demand for CHPTAC. The properties of cationic starch treated with CHPTAC improve the strength, retention, and drainage characteristics leading to higher paper quality and increase in demand for Cationic Starch. Increasing demand for papers and their products, as well as the most rapid expansion of the paper industry, are among the key sectors driving the CHPTAC market. The molecular weight of CHPTAC is 188.10 and it has become an essential ingredient in the paper industry. The use of CHPTAC is capable of providing for the production of soluble starch, a binder, and paper reinforcement that is required within the paper industry in order to give rise to high dry strength. As a result, the expansion of this paper sector is expected to create an opportunity for CHPTAC.
  • Expanding the Product Line of Personal Care- For the manufacture of hair care and skincare products, for example, conditioners, shampoos, or hairdressing products, color cosmetics CHPTAC is used. It's a conditioning agent, providing antistatic properties to the hair. The demand for CHPTAC in hairdressing products is anticipated to increase, due to the continued growth of the personal care industry worldwide.


  • Increasing manufacturing costs- The major challenges that affect the growth of CHP TAC are rising raw material prices and increasing logistic costs. In addition, the development of this substance may result in dangerous waste that is likely to pose a threat to the environment. However, as the stability of this market improves and a number of rules are expected to be introduced in the coming days, that position may become even more precarious. The risk to health and the environment from this market could be reduced by developing more efficient material handling techniques.
  • Supply chain interruptions can pose difficulties for producers and impede the expansion of the market.
  • The developed economies' deficiency in technological understanding would also hinder the rate of market growth.

CHPTAC Segmentation

Application (Emulsifiers, Surfactants, Flocculants, Binding Agents, Cationic Agent)

The cationic agent segment in the CHPTAC market is attributed to hold largest revenue share of about 30% by the end of 2036.  Due to increasing demand in various end-use industries, the cationic reagent segment has been chosen as a preferred application. An effective cationic reagent used to alter organic and synthetic polymers to synthesize quaternary ammonium compounds with a wide range of applications in the fields of chemical processing, personal care products, cosmetics, pulp and paper, textiles, and water management sectors. For example, in 2021, the average Australian woman spent about USD 3,600 a year on cosmetics and personal care items, according to financial comparison service provider Mozo. The growth of the market will be supported by several emerging sectors and an increased focus on the production of cationic reagent, as well as ongoing technological innovations during the forecast period.

End Use (Paper Industry, Textile Industry, Oil & Gas Industry, Chemical Industry, Water Treatment Industry)

The paper industry is anticipated to hold 28% share of the global CHPTAC market during the forecast period. The market is being driven by an increase in demand for paper and its products, with the rapid growth of the paper industry as a major factor. CHPTAC contains a molecular mass of 188.10 and is widely used in the paper industry. An effective way to improve the properties of paper is to use chemical additives. The CHPTAC for the cationisation of cellulose, textile fiber, and various types of polysaccharides has proved to be successful. In 2021, 417 million tons of paper and paperboard were consumed worldwide. It is anticipated that consumption will increase during the next ten years to 476 million tons by 2032.
