Asia-Pacific Oilfield Chemicals Market - Segmented by Chemical Type, Application, and Geography - Growth, Trends and Forecast (2018 - 2023)

Purchase Report

The Asia-Pacific oilfield chemicals market is estimated to register a CAGR of 4.55% during 2018-2023 (the forecast period). In the by type segment, corrosion and scale inhibitor are to dominate the market. China is expected to lead the market, as it has the largest consumption and is the biggest importer of crude oil in the region, among others. One of the major factors driving the growth of the market is the increased shale gas exploration and production in Asia-Pacific region and rising demand for petroleum-based fuel from the transportation industry.

Rising Demand for Petroleum-Based Fuel from the Transportation Industry

Petroleum based fuels used for transportation are expected to depict strong growth in the developing Asia-Pacific region. Countries such as China, India, Thailand, and Indonesia are among the leading consumers of petroleum fuels for transportation industry in the region. Continuous growing industrialization in China is likely to build the potential for supply chain industry in the country. Abundant natural resources, coupled with flexible government trade policies, are creating a trade favorable environment for domestic industries. The rise in the demand for petroleum-based fuel from transportation industry is to drive the market for oilfield chemicals.

Corrosion & Scale Inhibitors – the fastest growing segment by chemical type

Corrosion inhibitors are used to reduce corrosion in metallic pipes of oil wells. Inhibition is the preferred treatment for carbon steel pipes and vessels. The advantage of inhibition is that in most cases, it can be used even when the process continues. Corrosion occurs due to the reaction of oxygen with metallic parts to form oxides. Corrosion inhibitors act by forming a thin layer of barrier over the exposed parts. Several types of corrosion inhibitors are used in oilfields. Furthermore, new contracts for maintenance in Asia-Pacific exhibit increased investment in corrosion and scale inhibitors in the forecast period.

China to Dominate the Market 

China holds more than half of the oilfield chemicals market share in the region. Chinese domestic companies dominate the market in the field of equipment manufacturing. China’s State-Owned Enterprises (SOEs) hold nearly 66% of the market for well-drilling equipment. Small and medium sized private Chinese companies control 19% of the market, and foreign corporations make up 10% of the market. China aims to increase domestic crude oil production output to 200 million tons by 2020. Moreover, five-year plan released by National Development and Reform Commission and the National Energy Administration, the country’s supply capacity for natural gas should exceed 360 billion cubic meters. China is also promoting exploration to ensure domestic oil supplies. By 2030, natural gas and non-petrochemical energy is expected to new added energy supply.
