Market Overview:

The global oilfield chemicals market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for oil and gas, shale gas, and polyacrylamide across the globe. In terms of type, the alkyl phenols and ethoxylated aps segment is expected to lead the market during the forecast period owing to its properties such as corrosion inhibition, scale inhibition, and biocide activity. In terms of application, the oilfield chemicals market is segmented into oil and gas production and shale gas production.

Global Oilfield Chemicals Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Oilfield chemicals are specialised products used to enhance or enable the production of oil and gas from an oilfield. They can be used in drilling, production, processing or pipeline transportation operations. Common applications include corrosion inhibition, scale inhibition, emulsion breaking and water clarification.

Alkyl Phenols and Ethoxylated Aps:

Alkyl phenols and ethoxylated aps are used as drilling fluids in oil & gas industry. Drilling muds consist of water, salts, polymers and surfactants. Alkyl phenols & ethoxylated aps is one such surfactant which is used in high quantities for the purpose of stabilizing emulsions.

Glutaraldehyde-base Biocides:

Glutaraldehyde-base biocides are used in oilfield chemicals for the prevention of corrosion & scale formation on pipelines, equipment & well heads. They also prevent deposit formation on water intake and fire protection systems. The product is primarily employed as a solvent but it can be utilized as an intermediate during the manufacturing of other products such as plasticizers, herbicides and pesticides.

Application Insights:

The global demand for the product has witnessed a paradigm shift due to shale gas revolution in North America. The region is projected to account for over 60% of the total market revenue by 2030. The growing importance of this region can be attributed to increasing exploration activities and new finds of hydrocarbons, especially in Mexico and Canada.

The growth rate of this segment is expected to be higher than that of other applications owing to its rising importance as a processing hub for various onshore and offshore projects including LNG plants, pipelines & power lines construction etc., across various regions globally. Processing operations such as cementing/casing drilling muds emulsions are majorly used in drilling fluids formulation while others like biocides are increasingly being utilized owing to their high performance coupled with low toxicity which makes them ideal choice compared with other formulations in the industry today.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific was the largest regional market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has been witnessing a growing demand for oilfield chemicals due to increasing exploration and production activities in countries such as China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Vietnam.

The availability of raw materials including paraxylene (PX) and naphtha feedstock at low prices along with easy access to labor is anticipated to drive the growth of end-use industries such as paints & coatings; adhesives & sealants; drilling fluids; fracturing fluids; lubricants etc., thereby driving industry growth across Asia Pacific.

North America emerged as one of the major consumers owing to high demand from various end-use industries coupled with rising shale gas exploration activities in countries such as U.S.; Canada; Mexico etc., which are likely boost industry size over next eight years or so till 2030 AD.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for oilfield chemicals from the upstream and downstream sectors of the oil and gas industry
  • Rising investments in exploration and production activities across the globe
  • Growing use of advanced drilling technologies that require specialty chemicals for enhanced performance
  • Proliferation of shale gas development in North America and other regions
  • Stringent environmental regulations to reduce emissions from oil & gas operations
