North America continues to lead the market share and growth during 2018-2023

North America is dominating the both global Oilfield Biocides & Bio Solvents markets and were estimated to register $160.9 million and $71.1 million, respectively in 2017 and expected to reach $231.204 million and $129.66 million, respectively by 2023. North America is the major consumer and producer of oilfield biocides and bio-solvents across the world. It is due to high production of shale oil and gas activities in North America.
Selected / Sample Analysis done in the full Report:

  • Biocides:
The biocides are prepared using different blends and proportions of chemicals. The chemicals which are used here are the raw materials for the biocides. Chlorine Dioxide, Bromine, Peracetic acid, Glutaraldehyde (glut), Quaternary ammonium and so on, are used as the raw materials for preparing biocides. These chemicals with different proportions and blends result in biocides which are used in oilfields to kill the unwanted microorganisms at different instances based on the drilling area and climatic conditions. The end product biocide is supplied to the end users in oilfield such as ExxonMobil, PetroChina and so on, directly or by the biocide distributors such as Viachem, Shiv Shakti Trading Corporation and so on.

  • Bio-Solvents:
Raw materials for bio-solvents are derived from fruits and seeds such as soy bean, peanut, castor bean, orange peel and so on. These raw materials contain chemical compounds such as glycols, ethers, esters, ketones and so on. The chemical compounds are produced/ derived by companies such as India Glycols Limited (India), ADM (U.S.) and others. Using these chemical compounds, bio-solvents such as Absorb-OILTM, STEPOSOL® C-25, and so on are manufactured by companies like Stepan (U.S.), i-SOLV (Canada), and others. These bio-solvents reach to the end user companies such as Korea National Oil Company (South Korea), Murphy Oil (U.S.) and others. Bio-solvents reach the end user directly or through distributors such as Nexeo Solutions (Canada), Brenntag Canada Inc (Canada), Swift Australia (Australia), Biryong Corporation (Korea) and so on.

Excerpts on Market Growth Factors Mentioned in the Full Report:

  • The growing shale gas initiatives and investments in China led to the demand for biocides, and also expect to grow in the near future which is the main driving factor for the market.
  • Indispensable use of biocides for reducing microbial content in oilfields is acting like a key factor to drive the market growth.

Key Players of the Oilfield Biocides & Bio Solvents Market:

Dow Chemicals and BASF are the two key market players that are dominating the oilfield biocides industry. Dow Chemical deals extensively in non-oxidizing biocides market which includes glutaraldehyde, THPS, DBNPA, and others. Dow supplies a wide range of chemicals, and hence, is usually priced more than the average market price. As the U.S. is the major consumer for oilfield biocides, due to its revolutionary fracking operations, and with Dow Company’s major business presence n the U.S., the company stood as the global oilfield biocides market leader. The product line of BASF is mostly into biocides, whereas the company is a specialist in supplying end user specific formulated products. Ecolab, one of the global leaders in specialty chemicals business, is now part of oilfield chemicals market with the recent acquisition of Nalco chemicals business, and all the biocide products are supplied under Nalco Champion Company.
