Global Oilfield Chemicals Market Size, Share, Growth, Trends, Company Analysis and Forecast 2019-2026

the global oilfield chemicals market generated $44.86 billion in 2018 and is anticipated to reach $70.377 billion by 2026, rolling a CAGR of 7.1% from 2019 to 2026. The report cites a detailed analysis of market size & forecast, market dynamics, drivers & opportunities, research methodology and key market segment.

The high demand for top-end drilling fluids has escalated the growth of the market in more than one way, while the rise in oil exploration and several production activities has also been a dominating factor. At the same time, the rapid expansion of shale oil production is expected to cox the growth to a great height. Nevertheless, price fluctuations in crude oil and the awareness of environmental concerns might work as a barrier against the growth of the market. On the other hand, the advent of various eco-friendly oil-field chemicals creates new opportunities in the market.

North America held the largest share in the market in terms of revenue in the year 2018, contributing more than two-third of the total revenue. The dynamic domestic shale gas production and the huge expansion in horizontal drilling & hydraulic fracturing has helped North America continue the legacy to remain the traditional leader in oilfield chemicals market.

Corrosion and Score inhibitors contributed to three-tenth of the total market share in 2018 and is expected to maintain the same ratio by 2026. Application of corrosion inhibitors as anti-corrosion has now become quite common in drilling activities.

The segment of Drilling Fluids contributed to more than one third of the total market share in 2018 and will dominate in terms of revenue during the forecast period. The high demand for lubricator in chemical production and the increase in the number of oilfield drilling activities has spurred the growth of this particular segment. The Well Stimulation segment, on the other hand, is assumed to grow at the highest CAGR of 8% during 2018-2026.
