Global produced water treatment market is forecast to cross $ 13 billion by 2024. Produced water is a mixture of organic and inorganic compounds produced in a large amount during the production of the oil & gas from a reservoir. This water needs to be treated in order to be disposed or to be reused for the injection purposes.

The global produced water treatment market is driven by the growing demand for oil & gas coupled with increasing extraction activities. Additionally, stringent regulations regarding produced water discharge limits is expected to propel the market during forecast period. Further, continuous growth of shale oil & gas exploration is creating opportunities for the produced water treatment market.

The global produced water treatment market is segmented based on source, service, application, company and region. Based on source, the market can be bifurcated into crude oil and natural gas, of which the latter segment is expected to hold significant market share during forecast period owing to the technological advancements with respect to the increasing importance of LNG. Based on service, the market can be fragmented into primary separation, secondary separation, tertiary separation and others. The secondary separation segment dominates the market on account of the growing environmental concerns related to benzene, toluene and xylene in oil & gas industry in order to reduce the greenhouse gases emissions. On the basis of application, the market can be divided into onshore and offshore. The onshore segment dominates the market attributable to the increasing adoption rate of management services in onshore fields to reduce water utilization for irrigation purposes. Among all the regions, North America dominates the overall produced water treatment market on account of the ongoing shale gas developments in the US which have pushed the explorations activities in the region.

The major players operating in the produced water treatment market are Baker Hughes Ltd., Enviro Tech Systems, LLC, Siemens AG, Schlumberger Ltd, CETCO Oilfield Services, Ovivo Inc., General Electric Company, Veolia Environment SA, Halliburton Energy Services, Inc, FMC Technologies Ltd. and others.
