Oilfield Surfactants are important type of oil field speciality chemicals that are utilized in oil extraction, transportation and refining processes for augmenting the recovery process of petrochemicals from the wells. The market for oilfield surfactants has been broadly classified into several segments based on product type, substrate and its applications. Owing their chemical properties oilfield surfactants act as emulsifiers, corrosion inhibitors, lubricants, wetting and suspending agents, foam control agents, dispersants and biocides. The report provides detailed account of key oil filed surfactant types such as anionic, non-anionic, cationic, amphoteric, and others depending on their dissociation in water.
The increase in energy demand over the last decade propelled by economic development in developing regions has increased output of oil and gas extraction. This has resulted in growing demand for oil field chemicals used in exploration, extraction and refining process. Booming crude oil production to cater the growing oil demand from emerging economies is the major driver for oil field surfactants. Growing interest in bio-based oil surfactants is set to propel market growth of this niche category. Environmental concerns and decreasing oil prices might restrain oil production refraining market growth. The IndustryARC estimates that the market value for oilfield surfactants will advance from $853m in 2014 to $1.1 billion by 2020 with a CAGR of 5.5%.
