Global Oilfield Biocides Market Highlights Over 2022 - 2031

The global oilfield biocides market is estimated to garner significant revenue by growing at a CAGR of ~7% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rising oil & gas industry, and increasing utilization of hydraulic technology for oil extraction. Moreover, growing demand for the petroleum-based products is projected to drive the market growth. Along with this, the higher utilization of oilfield biocides for multiple purposes such as, crude oil treatment and transportation, drilling protection, produced water treatment, pipeline pigging, and others is anticipated to boost the market growth. For instance, in 2020, approximately 650 functional pipelines were noticed while about 30 oil pipelines were being manufactured. Furthermore, oilfield biocides are utilized to prevent bacteria formation in oil well drilling. Oilfield biocides are chemicals that are outsourced by multiple gases and oil companies. The developing oil & gas industry is also projected to hike the growth of the market during the forecast period. Additionally, in 2020, global oil production was estimated to be about 90 million barrels per day, which surged to over 95 million barrels per day in 2021. The demand for crude oil per day is estimated to reach approximately 100 million barrels globally by 2026.  All these factors are estimated to influence the market positively over the forecast period.

The market is segmented by type into THPS, TTPC, QAC, DBNPA, and others, out of which, the DBNPA segment is anticipated to hold the notable share in the global oilfield biocides market on account of its significant utilization in the paper & coating industry and slurries. As per a report by the National Library of Medicine (NLM), DBNPA is utilized as a vital biocide in water application owing to its quick chemical breakdown and immediate antimicrobial activity.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Chemicals (% of Value Added in Manufacturing) – 2016-2018

The chemical industry is a major component of the economy. According to the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis, in 2020, for the U.S., the value added by chemical products as a percentage of GDP was around 1.9%. Additionally, according to the World Bank, Chemical industry in the U.S. accounted for 16.43% to manufacturing value-added in 2018. With the growing demand from end-users, the market for chemical products is expected to grow in future. According to UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme), the sales of chemicals are projected to almost double from 2017 to 2030. In the current scenario, Asia Pacific is the largest chemical producing and consuming region. China has the world’s largest chemical industry, that accounted for annual sales of approximately more than USD 1.5 trillion, or about more than one-third of global sales, in recent years. Additionally, a vast consumer base and favourable government policies have boosted investment in China’s chemical industry. Easy availability of low-cost raw material & labour as well as government subsidies and relaxed environmental norms have served as a production base for key vendors globally. On the other hand, according to the FICCI (Federation of Indian Chambers of Commerce & Industry), the chemical industry in India was valued at 163 billion in 2019 and it contributed 3.4% to the global chemical industry. It ranks 6th in global chemical production. This statistic shows the lucrative opportunity for the investment in businesses in Asia Pacific countries in the upcoming years.
