The global market size of COFI is estimated to reach USD 1.73 Billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 5.5%. Rise in worldwide crude oil production and increase in hydraulic fracturing, mainly from unconventional sources is driving the market.

Different types of COFI are included in the report. The main types are paraffin inhibitors, scale inhibitors, hydrate inhibitors, asphaltene inhibitors, and drag-reducing agents. Paraffin inhibitors accounted for the largest-market share. Paraffin waxes are a major component in oil production and cause operational challenges by blocking the casings and oil pipelines, especially at low temperatures. Therefore, to avoid deposition of paraffin waxes, paraffin inhibitors are used in oil production processes and pipeline transportation of crude oil.

COFI are included at various application areas, such as extraction, refinery, and pipeline. In 2015, the extraction application accounted for the largest market share, in terms of both volume and value, given the large number of oil wells across the globe and large volumetric consumption of this product in the extraction process.

COFI are supplied through two major modes such as direct and through distributors. In 2015, the direct mode accounted for the largest market share between the two, in terms of both volume and value, because major oil & gas companies procure COFI by issuing tenders for the supply of the same. Direct supply mode is a prominent practice adopted by the suppliers, hence this is estimated to register the highest CAGR between 2013 and 2017.

Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East, and Rest of the World (including Africa and Latin America) are considered the major market of COFI in the report. North America is dominating the global COFI market. The rising demand of COFI in this region is mainly driven by the huge shale oil reserves in the U.S. Moreover, removal of sanction on Iran’s oil & gas industry, heavy oil production in Venezuela (Orinoco basin), and huge reserves in Brazil is driving the demand of COFI in the Middle East and Latin America. Moreover, the geopolitical condition which is expected to smoothen in Nigeria and Libya is also seen as a driving factor for COFI in Africa.

Crude Oil Flow Improvers (COFI) Market

Though the COFI market is growing at a significant rate, the continuous decline in crude oil prices and the environmental challenges due to contamination of water table hampers the market growth. Additionally, the geopolitical issues in Africa and Middle East indirectly affects the demand of COFI.

The Halliburton Company (U.S.), Baker Hughes (U.S.), Schlumberger (U.S.), and Clariant (Switzerland), are the leading companies, with an excellent foothold in the global market. These companies are expected to account for a significant market share in the near future. Other major manufacturers of COFI are Nalco Champion (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Dorf Ketal (India), Lubrizol Specialty Products, Inc. (U.S.), and Infineum (U.K.).
