Published Date : Dec 2020 | No. of Pages : 250 Pages | Category : Chemical and Material

The global Oman Industrial Salts market size is expected to be worth around US$ 37.2 Million by 2027, according to a new report by Vision Research Reports.

The global Oman Industrial Salts market size was valued at US$ 12.5 million in 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 14.4% during forecast period 2020 to 2027.

Growth Factors

The market is projected to register a revenue-based compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 14.5% from 2020 to 2027. The rising demand for the product from vendors of enhanced oil recovery in Oman is projected to remain a key growth driver for the market.

Industrial salt is widely used in the oil and gas industry owing to its wide range of applications. For instance, industrial salt is used as an additive in drilling fluid in drilling operations and cement solutions. It is also used as an additive in hydraulic fracturing, oil refining, and boiler feed-water pretreatment. Rising demand for industrial salts from Oman’s oil drilling and Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) operations, is the major factor estimated to contribute to market growth over the forecast period. The use of industrial salt  in form of brine with diluted salt content assists in expanding oil recovery. The country’s demand for industrial salts was almost entirely met by imports until 2018. High import costs, in terms of bulk storage and transportation costs, acted as an impediment to the customers in Oman.

Furthermore, long delivery times (approximately 3 to 4 months) of the imported product acted as a hindrance to the market growth. However, since the inception of Duqm Salt production plant in 2018, oilfield service providers now have an option to source their industrial salt requirements from the local plant at a competitive price when compared to imports. Therefore, oil companies are predicted to demand more industrial salt products as compared to previous years owing to easy availability and shorter lead times. This is expected to encourage domestic production and attract more investors to establish local industrial salt production plants. This, coupled with increasing upstream activities such as EOR operations in Oman’s oil and gas sector, is expected to play a major role in driving the industrial salts market of Oman in the forthcoming years.

Report Highlights

Salt in brine segment led the Oman industrial salts market for oil and gas market and accounted for more than 52.01% revenue share in 2019. On the basis of product, the market is segmented into rock salt, salt in brine, and solar salt. Salt in brine product segment dominated the market in terms of revenue as well as volume. Brine is acquired from huge waterbodies by dissolving mine deposits through a mining technique called solution mining. The product has a high concentration of saline solution. The product is prominently used by the oil and gas operators of Oman who engage in oil extraction work using the EOR technique.

Rock salt segment acquired a volume share of 35.1% in 2019. Rock salt occurs in the form of sedimentary evaporite minerals and is mined for industrial use. The demand for rock salt is expected to benefit from rising downstream oil and gas activities in the country. For instance, TheSohar Refinery Project capacity expansion was completed in 2017, expanding its capacity to 197,000 b/d from 116,000 b/d in previous years. Sohar refinery uses course and extra coarse rock salt to remove water from the finished product. Thus, factors such as the expansion of refineries along with steady production rates are likely to drive the segment growth over the forecast period.

Solar salt has a high purity level with sodium chloride content greater than 99.4%. The solar salt product segment accounted for a revenue share of 14.2%.The production of solar salt initiates when the salt brine is pumped into large outdoor ponds. These ponds are exposed to sunlight, and, hence, the product is called solar salt. The sunlight increases the temperature of the pond, which, in turn, results in the evaporation of water, leaving behind purified salt crystals that can be harvested.

The quantity of industrial salts imported for the Oman oil and gas industry was estimated at 66.8 kilotons in 2016 and the imports were witnessing a rising trend. Until 2018, the demand for industrial salts was met almost entirely through imports. The primary exporters of industrial salt to the country include Saudi Arabia and the UAE.
