Global Specialty Oilfield Chemicals Market, 2018-2023 - Focus on Production, Drilling Fluids, Well Stimulation, EOR

Dublin, June 12, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Specialty Oilfield Chemicals Market by Type (Demulsifiers, Inhibitors & Scavengers, Friction Reducers, Rheology Modifiers), Application (Production, Drilling Fluids, Well Stimulation, EOR), and Region - Global Forecast to 2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The specialty oilfield chemicals market is projected to grow from USD 11.36 billion in 2018 to USD 13.88 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2018 to 2023.

Specialty oilfield chemicals are used in oilfield operations in various applications such as production, well stimulation, drilling fluids, workover & completion, Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR), and cementing. These chemicals are used to increase the overall productivity of oilfields.

The demand for specialty oilfield chemicals is influenced by various factors such as the increasing production of crude oil, the location of oil reservoirs and the depth of drilling, availability of oil reservoirs, government policies that regulate oil exploration and production, and trade-offs among various chemical compounds. However, the declining prices of crude oil and ongoing geopolitical issues in some regions restrain the growth of the specialty oilfield chemicals market.

The demulsifiers type segment is expected to lead the specialty oilfield chemicals market in 2018, in terms of value. Specialty oilfield chemicals are composed of synthetic and natural polymers. The chemistry of each type of chemical is different and changes according to the type of wellbore.

For the optimum performance and efficiency of a particular oilfield, it is necessary to maximize the recovery of oil & gas from the oilfield in a cost-effective manner while balancing the adverse impact of this recovery on the environment. Demulsifiers are the most necessary chemicals used in oilfields since they perform the basic function of separating oil from water. Emulsions are unique and hence, separating them from a mixture is a very complex task. Even emulsions from a single source vary over the time. Therefore, demulsifiers are normally formulated on a case-to-case basis in the oilfield itself

The North America specialty oilfield chemicals market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023, in terms of value.
The US is witnessing increased demand for specialty oilfield chemicals, which is projected to continue in the future as well. Moreover, there is a significant increase in the use of specialty oilfield chemicals in various applications such as drilling fluids, cementing, well stimulation, and production. The increasing consumption of the well stimulation chemicals has a significant impact on the exploration activities of shale oil & gas in the North American region.

This trend is expected to continue due to the discovery of new reserves of shale gas in the region, thereby leading to continued shale gas exploration and production activities in the North American region. The demand for specialty oilfield chemicals in the North American region is influenced by different factors such as increasing production of crude oil in the region. The region is estimated to account for the largest consumption of specialty oilfield chemicals, owing to increased oil production and exploration activities, which have significantly increased in the last five years.

Some of the key companies profiled in this report are BASF (Germany), Ecolab (US), Clariant (US), DowDuPont (US), and Solvay (Belgium), among others.
