Key Market Trends


Drilling & Cementing Application to Dominate the Market

  • In the drilling segment, oilfield chemicals are used to stabilize temperature and prevent contaminated products from entering the drilling fluid system.
  • They are also added as additives to the drilling fluids used to maintain the hydrostatic pressure and clear the wellbore from cuttings. The rise in the deep-water drilling activities is expected to drive the oilfield chemicals market in the future.
  • The rise in the deep-water drilling activities is expected to drive the oilfield chemicals market in the future.
  • Many projects on oil extraction have started, which would include drilling and cementing as the initial stages and thereby increasing the demand for oilfield chemicals in this segment.
  • Additionally, the huge demand for technologically advanced cementing products, such as Selvol Polyvinyl Alcohol having non-ionic and low-viscous properties, is expected to open up opportunities in the oilfield chemicals market.



North America to Dominate the Market

  • The North American region dominates the global oilfield chemicals market, 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 the shale gas industry, advancements in technologies, and increasing oil exports.
  • The shale gas production has been increasing exceptionally over the recent years, and owing to increasing demand from the major developing economies of Asia-Pacific, the demand for natural gas is expected to rise over the forecast period.
  • This growing production of shale gas in North America, in turn, is projected to increase the demand for oilfield chemicals over the forecast period.
