Demulsifier Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2021 – 2027
Report ID: GMI3555
Demulsifier Market size is predicted to register exponential CAGR during the forecast period impelled by increase in crude oil production across the globe. Rising demand for lubrication especially from automotive industry in many emerging economies such as India, Myanmar, China, Thailand, Mexico, Saudi Arabia, etc. will have a positive outlook for demulsifier over the projected time period. Rapid industrialization along with increasing number of power plants commissioned to match the energy demand of burgeoning global population is expected to drive the demulsifier market. Crude oil desalting is the most important step in refining process. Demulsification process is carried out for desalting of crude oil. Demulsification remove salt and water present in the emulsion. If not done efficiently, the water & salt present in oil may create hindrance during the refining process and leads to corrosion and rusting of equipment. Function of demulsifiers is to stop the oil emulsion formation and to help separate oil from water through the process of sedimentation. Growth of demulsifier is directly linked to the production of crude oil. The rising demand for energy will further drive crude oil production. This, in turn, will boost the demand for demulsifier market.
Growing environmental concerns regarding production of demulsifiers which uses toxic organic chemicals is expected to hinder the growth of market. Along with this, various other factors affect performance of demulsifier including temperature, brine composition and droplet size & distribution. However, growing number of green demulsifiers produced via environment friendly chemicals can create new opportunity for the demulsifier market.
Based on types, demulsifier market is classified into oil soluble demulsifier and water soluble demulsifier. The water soluble demulsifier is totally organic surfactant solution in water and soluble in oil for demulsification of oil in water. Water soluble demulsifier destabilizes the oil and water interface which surrounds water particles in the emulsion, replace the emulsifying molecules and lets water to coalesce.
Based on application, demulsifier market are used in crude oil, sludge oil treatment, petro refineries, lubricant manufacturing, oil-based power plants, others. Crude oil segment is the largest application section for demulsifier on the basis of increasing crude oil production worldwide. At present, the demand for crude oil is increasing worldwide. In 2018 crude oil production exceeded 100 million barrels per day. Before the crude oil is transported and processed, crude oil emulsion needs to be separated. Destroying the emulsifying film around the water molecule can help is separation of oil and water. Demulsification method is usually application specific due to wide variety of crude oils and product specifications.
Middle East is the biggest demulsifier market mainly because of huge number of crude oil reserves present in the region. Many oil producing countries in the region such as Kuwait, Iran, UAE, Iraq and Saudi Arabia are anticipated to further propel the demand for demulsifier market over the projected time period. The Middle East market is followed by North America owing to the recent boom in shale gas production and exploration. Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest growing market due to emerging crude oil processing plants and petroleum refineries in India and China. For instance, India has recently announced to establish world’s biggest green field refinery by 2022 at a total estimated cost of USD 40 Billion. The new refinery is designed to produce various grade of transportation fuels utilized by Euro – IV and above vehicles. In order to process a wide spectrum of light and heavy crude oil the demand for demulsifier also is likely to increase in the region.
New demulsifier product launches and strategic acquisitions is primarily focused by many industry players so as to maintain competitive edge in the market. Companies such as BASF SE, Croda International, Schlumberger Ltd, Baker Hughes Inc., AkzoNobel N.V., Clariant AG, and The Dow Chemical Company are the key demulsifier market players who focus on these strategies to expand their customer base and widen their product portfolio. Many companies are looking to engage in new geographical areas to cater the growing demand for demulsifiers in the market.
