The oilfield chemicals market is estimated was valued at USD 26.06 billion in 2017 and is expected to reach USD 32.68 billion by 2023 with an estimated CAGR of 4.64%, during the forecast period, 2018 - 2023.This market is driven by a number of factors such as increasing shale gas exploration and production, and also due to rising demand for oilfield chemicals from Asia-Pacific. The opening of new horizons due to increasing deep water drilling operations are likely to act as key major opportunities for the oilfield chemicals market.
Availability of large amount of offshore shale reserves is likely to be a major key driving factor for global oilfield chemicals market. There are various unexplored reserves of shale gas globally with China, Argentina, United States, Algeria, and Canada holding the largest recoverable reserves. United States is the leading producer of natural gas and oil from Shale globally. Australia, China, India, and Indonesia are also taking tentative steps to explore their potential shale gas and oil reserves, and to further develop exploration in these reserves. Hence, this would result in higher demand for drilling, stimulation, and cementing chemicals.
The well stimulation segment is expected to expand at a fastest CAGR during the forecast period. The United States is the largest beneficiary of this technology due to the increasing activity in unconventional plays. The Middle East and the Asia-Pacific regions have also shown immense potential in adopting the well stimulation techniques. Europe is also expected to shift its focus to the exploration of shale in the North Sea due to increasing requirement to become more energy self-sufficient. Hence, the well stimulation chemicals are expected to have a very fruitful market in the near future.
North America is the leader across the globe for oilfield chemicals with an estimated CAGR of 5.00% due to the increased emphasis on shale gas production and exploration in the region. The United States accounts for the major share in North America mainly owing to the boom in shale gas industry, advancements in technologies and increasing oil exports. Countries, such as India and China are making large investments in the energy sector, owing to the growing demand for crude oil and petroleum. Europe holds a stable market oilfields chemicals market.
The global oilfield chemicals market is a consolidated market among the top players, with top five of them accounting for more than 50% of the market.
