DUBLIN, Aug. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/37vx6r/oilfield) has announced the addition of the "Oilfield Stimulation Chemicals Market by Types, Application & by Region - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2020" report to their offering.

The market size of oilfield stimulation chemicals is projected to reach $2.97 Billion by 2020, signifying a firm annualized growth rate of 10.1% between 2015 and 2020.

North America is the largest market for oilfield stimulation chemicals, globally. There has been rapid exploration of shale gas and oil reserves in North America. This has brought about significant changes in the specialty oilfield chemicals market in the recent past. Moreover, current advances in horizontal drilling, hydraulic fracking, availability of water for fracking, and mineral rights licensing are contributing to the rapid development of shale gas and oil reserves in the North American region. Friction reducers are the fastest-growing type of chemical in the oilfield stimulation chemicals market. As the high flow velocity and pressure of water injected into the well,can cause undesirable friction within the wells, an efficient oilfield stimulation process requires large volumes of water to be pumped at high pressure in a short period of time. This study estimates the market size, in terms of value, for oilfield stimulation chemicals market and projects the same by 2020.

As a part of the quantitative analysis, the study segments the market by types, applications, and regions and projects the market size till 2020. The countries covered in the report are China, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, South Korea, Brazil, Germany, U.K., Poland, Italy, Mexico, Canada, and the U.S. The segmentation by types includes friction reducers, surfactants, gelling agents, corrosion & scale inhibitors, acids, and others. The segmentation by applications includes hydraulic fracturing, matrix acidization, acid fracking, and others. Further, as a part of the qualitative analysis, the research provides a comprehensive review of important market drivers, restraints, opportunities, burning issues, challenges, and key issues in the market.

It also includes company profiling and competitive strategies adopted by different market players, including BASF SE (Germany), Chevron Philips (U.S.), E.I Dupont (U.S.), Dow Chemical (U.S.) and Ashland Inc. (U.S.).

Executive Summary:

Oilfield stimulation is the process of improving the oil wells for the purpose of increasing oil production and enhancing the flow of hydrocarbons. Chemicals used in the process of well intervention are oilfield stimulation chemicals.

The production of crude oil is driving the consumption of oilfields stimulation chemicals market, globally. Rise in the drilling of deeper wells is also one of the key reasons for the growth of the market. Growing demand for well stimulation processes offers great push to the oilfield stimulation chemicals market. It offers a wide range of opportunities to chemical suppliers as well as formulated oilfield chemical suppliers. Regulations related to the protection of surface water and ground water during seismic testing is hindering the growth of the oilfield services market. The oilfield operations of existing wells have now become difficult due to the introduction of these new and stringent policies. The limited exploration activity is mainly due to the difficulty and the time length required for issuing licenses and the necessary authorization for stimulating.

Global oil field stimulation chemicals have been segmented on the basis of applications (hydraulic fracturing, matrix acidization, acid fracking, and others), types (gelling agents, surfactants, friction reducers, corrosion & scale inhibitors, acids, and others) and regions (North America, Commonwealth of Independent States, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and RoW).

Hydraulic fracturing covers the major percent of the overall application market owing to the exploration of shale gas reserves. It is also estimated to be the fastest-growing application segment during the projected period. The gelling agents type was the largest market among the various types of stimulation chemicals in 2014. The friction reducers type is estimated to be the fastest-growing type between 2015 and 2020 as it is used in hydraulic fracturing, which is the largest and fastest-growing application segment. Currently, North America is the biggest market for oilfield stimulation chemicals, accounting for nearly 50% of the total market size, in terms of value, in 2014. North America's hold on the oilfield stimulation chemicals market is mainly due to the large exploration of unconventional oil & gas reserves. Among all the countries, the U.S. dominates the oilfield stimulation chemicals market. Asia-Pacific is believed to be the fastest-growing region during the projected period due to China's interest in shale gas exploration. Regions, such as Former Soviet Union, Africa, are expected to witness decent growth during the projected period.

The leading players of the oilfield stimulation chemicals market include BASF SE (Germany), Chevron Philips (U.S.), E.I. Dupont(U.S.), Clariant AG, Dow Chemical (U.S.) and Ashland Inc. (U.S.). Clariant Oil Services, a business unit of Clariant International Ltd., adopted the strategy of launching new products that include a full line of corrosion inhibitors, hydrogen sulfide scavengers, degreasers, dispersants, surfactants, pipeline cleaners, and hydrostatic testing applications. The company developed and introduced this new portfolio to meet the midstream segment's increasing demands and growing challenges in the oil & gas industry.Rise in the number of deep drilling activities and crude oil production is driving the oil field stimulation markets.

The leading players of oilfield stimulation chemicals include BASF SE (Germany), Chevron Philips (U.S.), E.I. Du Pont De Nemours & Company (U.S), and Ashland Inc. (U.S.).
