Report ID: 142258 3300 Chemical & Material 377 231 Pages 5 (34)

Market Overview:

The Global Flow Enhancer Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for flow enhancers from various end-use industries such as extraction, transportation, and refining. In addition, the growing demand for bio-based flow enhancers is also contributing to the market growth. However, volatility in raw material prices may restrain the market growth during the forecast period. Based on type, viscosity reducers accounted for a major share of the global flow enhancer market in 2017 and are projected to maintain their dominance during the forecast period. This can be attributed to their ability to reduce fluid viscosity and improve fluid circulation in pipelines and other processing equipment.

Global Flow Enhancer Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A flow enhancer is a device or additive that is used to improve the flow of fluid through a pipe or other conduit. Flow enhancers can be used to increase the speed and efficiency of fluid flow, as well as to reduce turbulence and drag. They are often used in pipelines carrying oil or gas, where smooth and uninterrupted flow is critical to minimizing wear on the pipeline and preventing leaks.

Viscosity Reducer:

Viscosity Reducer is a kind of additives which are used to reduce the viscosity of a liquid without changing its other properties. It can be either added to the beginning or end of the processing line depending on whether it is used for adding value or just to maintain viscosity. Viscosity reducers are also known as drag reducing agents, flow aid, or colloidal dispersions depending upon their form and function in enhancing fluid flow characteristics.

Emulsion Breaker:

Emulsion breakers are used to prevent the two phases (a and b) from separating. It is also used in cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, paints & coatings industries as it helps to maintain the viscosity of a liquid without any solid particles getting suspended in it. Emulsifiers are added into breaker for stable emulsion and better results.

The global emulsion breaker market size was valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2015.

Application Insights:

The transportation application segment led the global flow enhancer market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a revenue-based CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to extensive usage of flow enhancers in diesel fuel, gasoline, jet fuels and other petroleum products for enhancing engine performance.

Extraction was the second-largest segment accounting for a share of 22.3% in 2017 owing to its use in various mining operations including coal, lignite & sub-bituminous coal as well as crude oil production processes across the globe.

Regional Analysis:

North America was the largest regional market in 2017 owing to the presence of major companies such as Chevron, ExxonMobil, and Royal Dutch Shell. These companies are actively involved in enhancing oil flow rate through R&D activities. The U.S., being a developed economy with high disposable income is expected to dominate this region over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific is anticipated to be one of the fastest-growing regions due to increasing demand for enhanced oil from refineries and petrochemical plants located in China, India, South Korea, Taiwan etc.

Europe has been witnessing significant increase in production rates of motor vehicles on account rising consumer disposable income coupled with growing environmental concerns regarding carbon emissions associated with transportation fuels such as gasoline.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for Flow Enhancer from the food and beverage industry as a result of its ability to improve taste, texture, and appearance of products.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of Flow Enhancer among consumers, which is resulting in an increase in its demand across different applications.
  • Growing popularity of ready-to-eat and processed foods due to hectic lifestyles is propelling the growth of the Flow Enhancer market.
  • Increasing investments by key players in research and development activities to develop new and innovative products is fueling the growth of this market.
