The oilfield chemicals market size was valued at $23.4 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $35.0 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 3.2% from 2021 to 2030.

Oilfield chemicals are chemical compounds used to improve the efficacy and efficiency of activities at an oilfield site. Chemicals used in the oilfield are used in production, drilling, completion, and a variety of other operations. Oilfield chemicals are also used to purify equipment, machineries, the oil itself, and oil sites. These chemicals aid in the maintenance of a smooth-running oilfield, resulting in lower costs due to delays and stoppages during the drilling process. These chemicals prevent the production of metal scales and minimize the amount of water injected into oil wells during exploration and drilling, resulting in increase in demand for and use of oilfield chemicals.
