Oilfield chemicals cover a wide range of specialty chemicals including biocides, demulsifiers, surfactants, depressant, corrosion & scale inhibitors etc. Application of these specialty chemicals during upstream, midstream and downstream activities in oil field varies significantly. During the development process of oilfield chemicals, various testing instruments are used such as pour point bath, fann & brookfield viscometer and dynamic wheel test among others. In recent years, producers have shifted focus to deploy technology that can produce environmentally friendly oilfield chemicals. Furthermore, many oilfield chemicals producers are using technology that can increase oil production. Leading players are focusing on developing specialty chemicals that can decrease water consumption during oil extraction.
Oilfield Chemicals Market Dynamics
As of 2016, growth for the oilfield chemicals market has reached its stability phase due to the slowdown in the oil industry, maturity of the market in the European region and lack of product innovation scope. Furthermore, in past years, the impact of factors causing an unprecedented growth of oilfield chemicals industry has slowed down. For example, slow movement of production of shale gas and oil in North America has dented the growth potential of oilfield chemicals market. Despite such less optimistic outlook, there are factors that are expected to drive the global oilfield chemicals market growth rate in coming years. Using oilfield chemicals decreases the complexity of the oil production process and oil exploring companies are looking for low cost as well as simple oil production process to survive in the low margin business environment. As a result, demand for oilfield chemical in expected to increase in Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS), Africa region and Scandinavia during the forecast period.
Future growth of shale gas production in North America and Nordic region is identified as the long-term push factor for oilfield chemicals market development. Growth in demand for oilfield chemicals in hydraulic fracturing is positively affecting oilfield chemicals market share. Specific oilfield chemicals such as biocides offer unique benefits such as maximization of oil production, prevention of spoiling of functional fluids and corrosion removal. Due to such benefits, demand for biocides is expected to increase in coming years. Eco-friendly biocide is expected to emerge as a growth opportunity for the market during the forecast period 2017 to 2025.
Oilfield chemicals market is mainly driven by demand from oil and gas sector in Europe and North America. In Asia Pacific, demand for oilfield chemical is relatively lower historically owing to lack of application scope, low product awareness and lack of product penetration. However, in coming years, demand for oilfield chemicals in Asia Pacific is expected to increase owing to growing demand for crude oil and government investment in energy sector. Ban of hydraulic fracking in some European countries has slightly dented demand for oilfield chemicals in Europe. From the consumption perspective, North America dominated the market due to the presence of wide shale gas & oil exploration belt, the presence of leading producers of oilfield chemicals and strong penetration of oil field services sector. The decline in oil prices is expected to negatively affect demand for oilfield chemicals for drilling, completion and stimulation activities. In terms of market structure, the consolidated market for oilfield chemicals is resulted due to the presence of small numbers of large players.
Oilfield Chemical Market Segmentation Overview
By types, the oil field chemicals market has been segmented as specialty chemicals, commodity chemicals, polymers and others. Specialty chemicals further segmented into biocides, corrosion & scale inhibitors, demulsifiers, rheology modifiers, pour-point depressants and others. Commodity chemicals are further segmented barite, acids, and others. Polymers have been segmented into natural gums, polyacrylamides, cellulose & starch polymers, and others. By application, the market has been segmented into drilling fluids, production chemicals, cementing, workover & completion, well stimulation, enhanced oil recovery (EOR) and others. In 2016, well stimulation held the largest market share for oilfield chemicals industry owing to wide consumption of oilfield chemical.
By geography, the market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East & Africa (MEA) and Latin America.
