Oilfield Chemicals Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028
The global oilfield chemicals market size reached US$ 23.0 Billion in 2022. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 30.0 Billion by 2028, exhibiting a growth rate (CAGR) of 3.9% during 2023-2028. The growing demand for energy in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors, rising employment of shale gas for generating electricity, and increasing adoption of drilling fluids for applying hydrostatic pressure represent some of the key factors driving the market.
Oilfield chemicals consists of fibers, suspension, clay control, biocides, polymers, rheology chemicals, surface modifiers, and fillers. These chemicals also comprise surfactants, acids, friction reducers, iron control agents, polymers, retarders, deformers, emulsifiers, and demulsifiers. They are effective in preventing unwanted microbial growth in oil and gas pipelines, which can cause gas sourcing, pipeline clogging, and microbial-induced corrosion of equipment and transportation pipes. Oilfield chemicals function as effective emulsion breakers and are used to separate crude oil, such as petroleum, from water. These chemicals restrict abrasive materials to cause hindrances in the pipelines and reduce friction in metal-to-metal contact and provide lubricity to the drill string in open holes of deviated wells. They are also employed to prevent the formation of insoluble calcium salts when the drilling fluid contacts formation minerals and saline formation water. Furthermore, as oilfield chemicals inhibit undesirable foaming and help in pH control, their demand is increasing around the world.
Oilfield Chemicals Market Trends:
At present, the rising demand for oilfield chemicals for drilling, cementing, and well-stimulation purposes represents one of the primary factors influencing the market positively. Besides this, the increasing utilization of petroleum and petroleum-based fuels to operate vehicles and generate energy is propelling the growth of the market. In addition, the growing demand for energy in the residential, commercial, and industrial sectors to operate various electronic appliances and heavy machinery is offering a favorable market outlook. Apart from this, the rising employment of shale gas for generating electricity and domestic heating and cooking purposes is contributing to the growth of the market. Additionally, the increasing adoption of drilling fluids for applying hydrostatic pressure to maintain the temperature and cleanliness of the drill and prevent formation fluids from entering wells is supporting the market growth. Moreover, the rising usage of various eco-friendly oilfield chemicals with lower exposure toxicity, reduced flammability or flashpoint, enhanced biodegradability, minimized bioaccumulation, and high sustainability in application and production is strengthening the market growth. Furthermore, key market players are manufacturing novel demulsifiers that offer oil producers a more suitable option to separate crude oil from a combination of natural gas and water.
