Desanders and desilters are solid control equipment that separate sand and silt from drilling fluids in rigs. Increase in demand for desanders and desilters in the rig sector are one of the major drivers of the drilling mud desander and desilter market. Desander is used in recovery of waste oil, municipal sewage treatment, and oil sludge treatment in waste water treatment industry. Technological advancements in desanders and desilters are expected to boost the performance of these products, boosting their use in downstream applications. Upsurge in drilling activities has increased the number of active rigs in both onshore and offshore drilling. This, in turn, has fueled the demand for drilling-related equipment, including desanders and desilters.
COVID-19 scenario analysis
One important impact of the coronavirus outbreak on the oil industry is that the price of crude oil has fallen significantly in a short time. Implementation of stringent regulations to maintain social distancing and ban on international travel have resulted in less use of transport, thus reducing the demand for fuel. Furthermore, rig activities are expected to slow down due to lack of workforce, as employees are quarantined.
Rise in urbanization and increase in industrialization in emerging countries are the key factors increasing the fuel consumption. As the oil &gas industry has one of the most severe impacts on the environment, which will drive the growth of the market. Moreover, fluctuation in prices of crude oil has an immediate effect on the performance and profitability of market players. However, with the recovery of crude oil prices, onshore and offshore drilling projects have increased, encouraging oil &gas companies to invest in oil &gas projects with an aim to improve profitability. E&P projects are executed only when the revenue generated is high so that oil and gas companies can make profits. Several oil & gas projects across the world were cancelled due to price fluctuations. The uncertainty in price of crude oil will adversely affect the investments in E&P projects and have a negative impact on the growth of the oil and gas E&P industry. This will reduce the demand for drilling mud desanders and desilters during the forecast period. Desanders and desilters have undergone several changes due to the development of new fabrication techniques to improve the efficiency of the equipment and the process.
North America is the leader in the drilling desanders and desilters market. This is attributed to increase in drilling activities in the U.S. Europe and Asia-Pacific is expected to showcase exponential market growth during the forecast period.
