World Oilfield Chemicals

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0339777/World-Oilfield-Chemicals.html

Global demand to exceed $22 billion in 2014

World demand for oilfield chemicals is expected to exceed $22 billion in 2014. Oil and natural gas production is projected to increase, especially in Africa, Asia and South America. Energy demand is expected to recover from a subpar 2009 as the global economy recovers from the recent downturn. Following the significant drop in oil and gas prices in late 2008, rig count and drilling activity levels should also continue to grow. Additionally, producers are becoming increasingly reliant on unconventional sources of oil and natural gas -- such as oil sands, shale gas and very deep offshore waters, especially in the US and Canada, which are among the most intensive users of oilfield chemicals.

Well stimulation chemicals to be fastest growing type

Drilling fluids will remain by far the largest product category, but well stimulation chemicals will register the fastest growth. At present, well stimulation chemical demand is heavily concentrated in four countries: the US, Russia, Canada and China. Demand in the US alone accounts for more than half of the global well stimulation market. Over the past decade, Russia has registered exceptionally rapid growth in demand for well stimulation materials, in the process becoming the second largest market in the world -- though still behind the US. As oilfields elsewhere continue to mature, stimulation techniques will become more attractive options for oil and gas producers.

North America to remain largest market

Although oil and gas production is expected to grow more rapidly in other regions of the world, North America is expected to remain the largest market by a wide margin. The US and Canada, with older and more developed oilfields, offer a much larger market for chemicals designed to maintain output levels in areas of diminishing well flows. In contrast, Africa and the Mideast are much less intensive users of oilfield chemicals, as extraction of oil and gas is relatively easy in that part of the world. The Africa/Mideast region, which accounts for about 40 percent of global oil production, is a smaller market for oilfield chemicals than its enormous energy output might suggest. Even so, oilfield chemical demand in the region is expected to grow based on increased natural gas production in many previously underdeveloped areas (e.g., Libya, Angola), and more activity taking place in more demanding environments off the coasts of Nigeria, Angola and other nations in West Africa. Europe, the slowest-growing region for oilfield chemicals, will see both strong growth in Russia and a few smaller producing nations, and sluggish growth in Norway and the United Kingdom due to diminishing output from the North Sea. However, growing interest in unconventional production could serve to boost European oilfield chemical demand in the long term.

Study coverage

This study presents historical demand data (1999, 2004 and 2009) plus forecasts for 2014 and 2019 by major oilfield chemical type, world regional market and for more than two dozen major national markets. The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 36 global industry participants, such as M-I SWACO (Schlumberger), Baker Hughes, Halliburton, Champion Technologies and Nalco.
