Paraffin inhibitor type accounted the highest demand in the COFI market
The paraffin inhibitor segment has been witnessing significant demand in recent years. Paraffin waxes are a major component representing up to 20%, by weight, of crude oil. Paraffin deposits are formed mainly in subsea and deep water applications that usually take place at subzero temperatures. This creates major problems in oil production and transportation. Paraffin inhibitors helps dampen the effects of paraffin (wax) deposits during crude oil extraction. Hence, this segment accounted for the largest market share, in terms of both volume and value, in 2015.
Direct supply to end users is a preferred channel of distribution
Major oil & gas companies prefer procuring COFI products directly from the suppliers by issuing tenders. Key manufacturers such as Halliburton/Baker Hughes (U.S.), Schlumberger (U.S.), that provide oilfield services such as drilling and production, consume bulk of these chemicals internally for their operations. Remote locations are catered through distributors.
