The demulsifier market is projected to register a CAGR of 3.7% (between 2015 and 2020) with market size projected at $2,550 million by 2020. The Middle Eastern region is the largest market for demulsifier and it is projected to continue leading over the next five years. This is due to the reason as the Middle East accounts for the highest crude oil production share across the globe.

The major restraints in the market are stringent environmental legislations due to increasing concern over the chemicals’ impact on environmental has led to stringent regulatory constraints for demulsifier manufacturers. Growing deep-water operations around the globe raises the concern over the marine environment protection and sustainability. There are increasing regulatory controls related with the chemicals used in the deep-water operations. Therefore, manufacturers of demulsifier are encouraged to opt for green alternatives. Developing these eco friendly chemistries is a real challenge as these chemicals have to perform under extreme conditions. They also have to comply with critical environmental regulations and safety standards, which are tending to be applied evenly all over the world.

The intensity of competitive rivalry in the demulsifier market is high. The market is highly fragmented with the presence of a large number of demulsifier manufacturers and suppliers, and specialty formulated demulsifier suppliers. Since this market has low entry barriers, there is a significant amount of competition among the existing players which are ranging from small to big companies.
The market has been analyzed in terms of value ($Million) for the six regions, namely, The Middle East,  North America, Europe, South America, Africa, and Asia-Pacific for the applications, namely crude oil, petro refineries, lubricant manufacturing, oil-based power plants, sludge oil treatment, and others.

Demulsifier also known as emulsion breaker, is majorly used for crude oil processing, where is used for demulsification of oil-water emulsions. Apart from crude oil, other applications, such as petro refineries, lubricant manufacturing, oil-based power plants, and sludge oil treatment which consumes demulsifier in much lesser quantities. Requirement of demulsifier for crude oil processing depends on various factors. Major ones are, the quality of crude oil (heavy, medium, or light), the water cut level, whether the oil field is onshore or offshore, the climatic conditions, maturity level of oil field, the geological characteristics of the well, and others.

The market for demulsifier is projected to witness a CAGR of 3.7% in the next five years to reach $2,550 million by 2020. In the demulsifier market, the industry comprises several global and regional players such as Schlumberger Limited (U.S.), Halliburton (U.S.), Baker Hughes Incorporated (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), Ecolab Inc. (U.S.), The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), Clariant AG (The Switzerland), Croda International Plc (U.K.), Akzo Nobel N.V. (The Netherlands), Weatherford International Ltd. (Ireland), and Momentive Performance Materials, Inc. (U.S.). These major players have significant control in the market.

The report covers the demulsifier market and its trends that concern six regions, namely, The Middle East, North America, Europe, South America, Africa, and Asia-Pacific.

Demulsifier Market Share, by Region, 2015

Demulsifier Market

Source: MarketsandMarkets Analysis

The Middle East is projected to continue leading the market till 2020, followed by Europe, and North America. This is because the Middle East accounts for the highest crude oil production share across the globe. In future too, the Middle East is expected to continue leading the crude oil production. Higher crude oil production signifies higher consumption of demulsifier.
