Oilfield Chemicals Market

Market Insights

Oilfield chemical consumption is expected to spur with increasing supply of oil & gas and growing international oil & gas trade. According to EIA, the global oil consumption was observed to be 96.92 million barrels per day in 2016 and anticipated to surpass 100 million barrels per day by 2018. Further, increasing exploration of new oil reserves raised the world oil production to 97.17 million barrels per day which is projected to reach 100 million barrels per day by 2018. Increasing exploration of shale reserves in North America and growing oil output of OPEC resulted in over supply of oil & gas which has adversely effected the oil prices. Thus, decline in crude oil prices offsetting the profitability margins of oil producers which in turn is negatively impacting the demand for oil field chemicals. However, the growth in number of matured reserves, softening of oil prices, and development in technologies such as hydraulic fracturing, pressure pumping shifting the focus of the oil producers to improve the yield from existing reserves which is subsequently increasing the demand for oilfield chemicals. Further, increasing complexity in exploration of new reserves with growing technological challenges such as exploration in ultra deep water or exploration in high-pressure and temperature and corrosive conditions propelling the demand for oilfield chemicals. Therefore, oil field chemicals market is projected to witness moderate growth till 2018 and is expected to witness robust growth during the period of 2018-2025.

Competitive Insights:
