Oilfield Chemicals Market Analysis: Plant Capacity, Production, Operating Efficiency, Technology, Demand & Supply, End-User Industries, Distribution Channel, Regional Demand, 2015-2030

Format: Online | Last Updated: Apr 2021

[Online Quarterly Update] Global oilfield chemicals demand is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR of 5.55%. Oilfield chemicals are chemicals that find application in oil and gas exploration. They are used in drilling operations and production facilities to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of extraction process. These chemicals also help in smooth operation of oilfield and reducing costs related to over delays and stoppages during drilling process. They are of various types including biocides, corrosion and scale inhibitors, surfactants, demulsifiers, rheology modifiers, gellants and friction reducers. Due to various properties, oilfield chemicals find application in several areas related to oilfield operations including drilling fluids, cementing, enhanced oil recovery, production chemicals, well stimulation, and workover and completion. Increasing shale oil extraction coupled with rise in deep water drilling operations is projected to drive the demand of oilfield chemicals for the forecast period. Another factor influencing demand growth is the rise in offshore drilling operations in middle east. Furthermore, the increasing need of petroleum-based fuel in the transport industry is also going to generate demand growth. Increasing efforts towards clean energy alternatives is going to hamper the demand during the forecast period. 
In 2020, the spread of COVID-19 in major global economies caused nationwide lockdowns which had an impact on the crude oil extraction. The demand for crude oil fell sharply with over supply in the market. This had an impact on the demand of oilfield chemicals for the first half of 2020. The demand for oilfield chemicals fell sharply during the coronavirus pandemic. 
Region wise, North America region holds the major share of global demand for oilfield chemicals due to increasing shale oil extraction.
