Oilfield Biocides Market: Segmentation by Geography

The market is segmented into five regions encompassing APAC, Europe, MEA, North America, and South America. North America was the largest market for oilfield biocides in 2019, and the region is expected to offer several growth opportunities to market vendors during the forecast period. About 62% of the market’s growth will originate from North America during the forecast period. The growing global demand for energy has led oil and gas companies in Canada to increase unconventional exploration and production activities. In addition, the increasing consumer inclination toward the adoption of eco-friendly products and rising stringent regulations regarding the use of VOCs is driving the demand for oilfield biocides in North America. The US and Canada are the key markets for oilfield biocides in North America.

Oilfield Biocides Market: Segmentation by Type

The oilfield biocides market is segmented into five segments based on the type comprising of glutaraldehyde, chlorine, THPS, quaternary ammonium, and others. Glutaraldehyde was the most consumed type of oilfield biocides in 2019. This is due to the excellent performance of glutaraldehyde in both neutral and alkaline water. The application of glutaraldehyde significantly reduces biofilm accumulation, bacterial population, and metabolic activity in oilfields. These factors are creating significant growth potential in the segment.

Oilfield Biocides Market: Growth Drivers

Increasing adoption of oxidizing oilfield biocides will drive market growth. End-users in the market are increasing the preference for oxidizing oil-field biocides due to their ability to destroy microorganisms in a wide range of applications, including commercial cleaning and industrial applications. They are also preferred in cases where oilfield microbial growth is too high and cannot be controlled by nonoxidizing agents. The growing competition in the oil and gas industry is driving oil and gas companies to continuously focus on discovering new resources, increase profit margins, and stay competitive. This is further increasing the demand for oxidizing oilfield biocides, which is driving the growth of the market.
