Slow growth in the production of crude oil and formulation and implementation of regulations related to oil bunkering act as restraints to the growth of the chemical tankers market. Low international prices of crude oil and reduced capital investments for its exploration over the past few years have led to the slow production of crude oil. Moreover, low investments for exploring and producing crude oil between 2013 and 2015 in the US have impacted the production of shale oil in the country. The oil production has decreased in China as well, owing to the low oil price environment in the country.
