The global oilfield scale inhibitor market was valued at USD 509.4 Million in 2014 and is expected to witness a CAGR of 5.40% between 2015 and 2020. Factors driving the market of oilfield scale inhibitor include increasing demand from the oil and gas industry, wide availability of scale inhibitors, rising demand for biodegradable and environment-compatible scale inhibitors, and so on.

The oilfield scale inhibitor market is mainly segmented on the basis of type and region. The years considered for the report are:

  • Base Year- 2014
  • Estimated Year- 2015
  • Projected Year- 2020
  • Forecast Period- 2015-2020

The base year used for company profiles is 2014; where the information was not available for the base year, the prior year was taken into consideration.

The oilfield scale inhibitor market is experiencing strong growth and is mainly driven by regions, such as RoW, North America, Asia-Pacific, and Europe. Considerable amount of investments are made by different market players to serve the end-user applications of scale inhibitors. The global market is segmented into major geographic regions, such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World (RoW). The market has also been segmented on the basis of type. On the basis of type of scale inhibitors, the market is sub-divided into phosphonates, carboxylate/acrylate, sulfonates, and others.

Research Methodology:

Various secondary sources, such as encyclopedia, directories, and databases have been referred to identify and collect information useful for this extensive, commercial study of the market. The primary sources, which include experts from related industries as well as key suppliers, have been interviewed to obtain and verify critical information as well as to assess the future prospects of the oilfield scale inhibitor market.

The research methodology adopted in this report is explained below:

  • Top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate market sizes of the oilfield scale inhibitor market
  • The market size, in terms of value, is calculated by using an average price derived per Kg, and then multiplying it with scale inhibitors consumption in different regions. Later, using the bottom-up approach, the global market size, in terms of value, for oilfield scale inhibitor was calculated.
  • The top-down approach was used to estimate the sizes of other individual markets (mentioned in the market segmentation by type and region) via percentage splits from secondary and primary research. For calculation of a particular market segment, the most immediate parent market size was estimated for implementing the top-down approach.

The data were triangulated by studying various factors and trends from the demand and supply sides. The market size was validated using both top-down and bottom-up approaches, and the data were verified through primary interviews. After arriving at the overall market size, the total market has been split into several segments and sub-segments. The figure below shows the break-down of the primaries on the basis of company, designation, and region, conducted during the research study.

The global oilfield scale inhibitor market was valued at USD 509.4 Million in 2014 and is expected to reach USD 697.5 Million by 2020, at a CAGR of 5.40% from 2015 to 2020. Increasing demand from the oil & gas industry, wide availability of scale inhibitors, and increasing demand for biodegradable and eco-friendly scale inhibitors are driving the market for oilfield scale inhibitor.

Among the various types of oilfield scale inhibitors, the carboxylate/acrylate type segment accounted for the largest share in 2014. Carboxylate/acrylic-based scale inhibitors are commonly used to prevent the scales of calcium carbonate, zinc, and iron. The carboxylate/acrylate-based scale inhibitors meet the legislation requirement; abiding environmental norms due to the absence of phosphorus. This is a driving factor for this typeís market as strict environmental rules and regulations lead to the use of eco-friendly oilfield scale inhibitor. However, the market for the sulfonates type is expected to grow at the highest CAGR between 2015 and 2020. Sulfonate-based scale inhibitors are used in the oil industry in the form of copolymers. They are used to prevent the most common type of barium sulfate scales formed in oil and gas activities, and also in the desalination process. With new discoveries of oil and gas, the market for this type is expected to grow at the fastest rate.

RoW region, which includes the Middle-East, Africa, and South America, held the largest share of the global oilfield scale inhibitor market in 2014, and is expected to continue doing so during the forecast period. The region has the largest proven oil reserves in the world. Huge oil and gas activities, along with new oil & gas field discoveries, make this region a huge prospect for the market.

Oilfield Scale Inhibitor Market

RoW is the largest market for oilfield scale inhibitor. RoW includes some of the biggest oil producing regions, such as the Middle-East, Africa, and South America. However, the geopolitics and political unrest in these regions may restrain growth of the RoW market. Lack of proper infrastructure in many African countries is also a huge concern for the growth of this market.

The global demand for oilfield scale inhibitor is mainly catered to by regional manufacturers. There are, however, various multinational companies operating globally and producing scale inhibitors. Some of the major players in the market are The Dow Chemical Company (U.S.), BASF SE (Germany), AkzoNobel Oilfield (The Netherlands), Kemira OYJ (Finland), Solvay S.A. (Belgium), Halliburton Company (U.S.), Schlumberger Limited (U.S.), Baker Hughes Incorporated (U.S.), Clariant AG (Switzerland), E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Company (U.S.), Evonik Industries AG (Germany), GE Power & Water Process Technologies (U.S.), Ashland Inc. (U.S.), and Innospec Inc. (U.S.).
