Market Overview:

The global oil field corrosion inhibitor market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth of the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for oil and gas across the globe. In addition, the growing awareness about environmental protection is also propelling the growth of this market. The global oil field corrosion inhibitor market can be segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, it can be divided into imidazoline, quaternary ammonium salt, inorganic corrosion inhibitor, organic phosphorus inhibitors and others. On account of application it can be classified into acidification operation sewage treatment pipeline corrosion inhibition among others .

Global Oil Field Corrosion Inhibitor Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

An oil field corrosion inhibitor is a chemical compound that is used to prevent or reduce corrosion in oil fields. Corrosion can lead to the formation of scale, which can clog pipelines and other infrastructure, and can also cause equipment failure. Oil field corrosion inhibitors are typically added to produced water (water that is produced along with oil and gas) in order to protect metal surfaces from attack by the water.


Imidazoline is a chemical compound, which is soluble in water and ethanol. It has a molecular weight of 172.16 and the structure consists of 1-4 nitrogen atoms bonded together in an aromatic ring with two methyl groups (CH3). The product name comes from its first identified use as an intermediate for the production of nitric acid; it was later found to have anti-corrosive properties.

Quaternary Ammonium salt:

Quaternary ammonium salt is a compound of organic nature which has four nitrogen atoms and one hydrogen atom. It is white in color solid material, usually available as a crystalline powder. Quaternary ammonium compounds are used for the treatment of heavy oil and gas well corrosion problems by forming an anti-corrosive layer on the surface of downhole equipment or pipelines.

Application Insights:

The others application segment includes corrosion inhibition in pulp and paper, mining, chemical processing, water treatment and others. The product is widely used in the pulp and paper industry owing to its ability to prevent acid from eating away at the metal parts of machines and equipment. In addition, it is also used for wastewater treatment due to its high biodegradability.

Acidification operation was estimated as the largest segment with a share of over 40% in 2017 on account of increasing demand for sour gas production coupled with low crude prices across major economies including Russia & Saudi Arabia. Low crude prices have led to an overall decline in energy sector investments which has consequently affected global oil production leading to increased imports into these countries resulting in higher demand for inhibitors worldwide.

Regional Analysis:

The market in North America was valued at USD X billion in 2017 and is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for corrosion inhibitors from various end-use industries, such as oil & gas, power generation, petrochemicals and others. The presence of major oil field service companies coupled with high investments by them in exploration activities is also anticipated to drive the regional market growth over the forecast period.

Asia Pacific held a significant share of global revenue due to growing industrialization along with rapid urbanization across emerging economies including China and India which has led to an increase in energy consumption and production of wastewater resulting ultimately into increased demand for corrosion inhibitors in this region. In addition, rising government initiatives on improving water treatment facilities are further expected fuel product demand across Asia Pacific during the projected period.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for oil field corrosion inhibitors from the developing countries owing to the growth of their economies and rising population.
  • Rapid industrialization in the Asia Pacific region is also propelling the demand for oil field corrosion inhibitors in this region.
  • Stringent environmental regulations by governments across different regions are compelling companies to use oil field corrosion inhibitors, which is further fuelling the market growth.
  • The increasing number of drilling activities and production operations in offshore areas is also driving the market for oilfield corrosion inhibitors globally.
