About Petroleum Sorbent Pads
Petroleum sorbent pads are a part of oil and chemical spill kits and are used to clean up spills. Oil and chemical spill kits are safety equipment used by workers in areas susceptible to oil and chemical spill hazards. The oil and chemical spill kits include all forms of PPE that protect the wearer from oil and chemical spill hazards. These spill kits are widely deployed for handling critical situation as a result of spillage. The oil and chemical spill kits consist of absorbent pads, oil absorbent socks, oil absorbent booms, oil absorbent cushions, gloves, disposable bags, and protective clothing.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global petroleum sorbent pads market to grow at a CAGR of 3.98% during the period 2017-2021.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend in the market is Increase in oil spill preparedness programs. Oil spills have been a major concern across the industries. The market is witnessing an increase in training activities related to oil spills, which require the understanding of the concerns of environmental damages and hazards caused due to oil spills. Regulatory bodies such as OSHA mandate training for dealing with emergency situations in the event of an oil spill.”
According to the report, one driver in the market is increasing incidents of oil spills and pipeline ruptures. The significant increase in oil spills incidents in the recent past will have an impact in the global petroleum sorbent pads market. These incidents threaten natural resources, public property, and life. The rise in oil spills can be attributed to the increase in transportation of crude oil through sea routes and pipelines, which is expected to drive the market for petroleum sorbent pads. Petroleum sorbent pads are required to mitigate the harmful effects of liquid petroleum hydrocarbons released into the environment.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is saturation and buoyancy of petroleum sorbent pads. One of the major challenges associated with the use of petroleum sorbent pads is that they get saturated by oil over the period of their use. There is a chance that the pads lose their buoyancy when saturated as they come in contact with oil and water in the course of use. Once the petroleum sorbent pads are saturated, they cannot recover oil any further. It also becomes difficult to identify the level of saturation. Sorbent pads, which are made from organic materials such as sawdust and straw, initially possess but eventually lose their affinity for fluids such as petroleum.
