Crude Oil Flow Improvers Market Overview:

Global Crude Oil Flow Improvers Market was valued at $1,282 million in 2016, and is anticipated to reach $1,920 million, growing at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2017 to 2023. Crude oil is one of the most actively traded commodities with a stable growth rate globally. It is extracted from remote locations and needs to be transported through pipelines. Transportation of crude oil via pipeline is relatively difficult, owing to its viscosity and requirement of economical and efficient mode of transferring the oil. Thus, control over viscosity of the heavy oil is important for long distance transport without affecting the quality or state. Crude oil flow improvers maintains the viscosity of crude oil during processing and transportation. Moreover, it acts as additives that deliver apt solutions in all the stages of crude oil extraction from reservoir to refinery and maximize the production. These improvers are also known as drag reducing agents, which are injected into pipeline fluids to reduce turbulence. Moreover, these are employed on a wide scale among oil pipelines to increase the flow capacity and reduce the energy loss in pipelines.

The market is driven by the increase in crude oil production globally, to cater to the high demand, and rise in demand for crude oil flow improvers from the developing markets such as Middle East and Africa. Moreover, growth in hydraulic fracturing is expected to increase the demand for crude oil flow improvers. However, steady decline in crude oil prices and environmental concerns are expected to hamper the market growth in the near future. Furthermore, the production of crude oil flow improvers from renewable resources is expected to provide a substantial growth opportunity in the near future.

The global crude oil flow improvers market is segmented into type, application, and geography. On the basis of type, it is categorized into paraffin inhibitors, asphaltene inhibitors, scale inhibitors, and hydrate inhibitors. Based on application, it is classified into extraction, pipeline, and refinery. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. In addition, the report highlights various factors that impact the growth of the global market, such as key drivers, restraints, growth opportunities, and the role of different key players. It presents the quantitative data, in terms of both value and volume, which is obtained from secondary sources, such as company publications, Factiva, Hoovers, OneSource, and others.

Top Investment Pockets

The asphaltene inhibitors segment is the most lucrative market, followed by the scale inhibitors segment. Asphaltene molecules, present in most of the liquid & gas streams, can block pipelines, reduce production flow, and lead to production losses. Asphaltene inhibitors reduce the precipitation of asphaltene from crude oil and increases the production potential to avoid deposition in flowlines.

Crude oil flow improvers, also known as drag reducing agents, are specifically injected into the pipeline to reduce turbulence. Crude oil is extracted from remote locations and require to be transported to the desired destinations. The demand for crude oil has maintained a stable growth rate during the past few years. Transportation of crude oil via pipeline is relatively difficult specifically in cold regions, owing to its high viscosity. Thus, crude oil flow improvers are widely employed to maintain the viscosity of crude oil for long distance transport without affecting its quality.    

The asphaltene inhibitors segment is expected to witness the highest growth rate, registering a CAGR of 6.3% during the forecast period. Furthermore, in 2016, the paraffin inhibitors segment accounted for more than one-third of the total market share. Paraffin inhibitors are used to minimize or prevent paraffin deposition. Paraffin compounds in crude oil can damage plug production and transport equipment. It also causes poor flowability or lead to flow-restricting deposits. The pipeline segment is expected to witness the highest growth rate, registering a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period.

North America is expected to be the most significant market for crude oil flow improver from 2017 to 2023. U.S. dominated the North America crude oil flow improver market in 2016. North America witnessed the highest demand for crude oil flow improver, owing to the increase in adoption of nontraditional oil extraction techniques, such as hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling, which increases the need for flow improvers to reduce viscosity of oil and to improve the movement through pipes. In addition, Asia-Pacific is expected to witness the highest CAGR of 6.9% during the forecast period.
