Fluid Loss Additives Market Overview

The fluid loss additives market size is expected to reach US$465.3 million by 2027 after growing at a CAGR of around 3.5% from 2022 to 2027. The fluid loss additive is a chemical that helps to control the fluid loss with filtration and retains various features of cement slurry such as compressive strength, viscosity, density, and thickening time. The aqueous-based liquid polymer is mixed with water before the preparation of cement slurry and used in drilling fluid operations, hydraulic fracturing fluids, and others. The fluid loss additive industry is expected to achieve high growth with the increasing crude oil production and shale oil and gas exploration projects. The fluid loss additive market is experiencing a major drive owing to high demand in crude oil, which is rising the growth in major onshore as well as offshore drilling operations. Furthermore, high demand in the petroleum sector and drilling operations across the world is leading to major growth opportunities for the fluid loss additive market.

COVID-19 Impact

The fluid loss additive market was impacted by the covid-19 outbreak due to a slump in crude oil production activities and other disruptions. The fluid loss additive is used in the drilling operations to prevent the loss of fluid in the filtrate during good drilling. The oil drilling sector was also impacted by the outbreak. The lockdown restrictions, labor shortages, and demand and supply created a major halt. With falling demand for petroleum and crude oil in transportation due to lock down travel restrictions, the oil producers reduced the supply. The declining demand for refined petroleum-based products, gasoline, and others created a major impact in the upstream sector. It resulted in the falling upstream activities, such as exploration and production, well drilling, and others. According to Energy Information Administration (EIA), the global oil demand for the year 2020 fell by around 90,000 barrels per day, compared to 2019. The drilling activities were majorly impacted. With the decline in crude oil productions and drilling operations, the demand for fluid loss additives also experienced a major decline, thereby leading to a fall in fluid loss additives consumption and growth in the covid-19 outbreak.

Fluid Loss Additives Market Segment Analysis – By Type

By type, the synthetically modified natural additive segment has the largest share of more than 30% in 2021 and is expected to dominate the fluid loss additives market in the coming years. The synthetically modified natural additives are high in demand due to their excellent performance in extreme conditions, high pressure, and temperature. These are the natural additives that are modified using chemical reactions, thereby offering excellent performance in high temperatures and pressure in the good drilling and cementing functions in the petroleum oil sector. Furthermore, the low cost associated with this fluid loss additive is leading to high usage of the synthetically modified natural additives in the oil drilling sector. Moreover, Seadrill Ltd gets into a drilling agreement with Walter Oil & Gas in 2020, which included the positioning of the semi-submersible rig, adding up to USD 17 million to the backlog revenue. Thus, the growth for the synthetically modified natural additive segment is increasing with major use in the drilling operations and oil production during the forecast period.

Fluid Loss Additives Market Segment Analysis – By Application  

By application, the drilling fluids segment is expected to have a growing share of over 35% in 2021 and is expected to boost the fluid loss additives industry in the coming years. The drilling fluid applications are rising owing to the growing shale gas and shale oil productions. The fluid loss additives are used to prevent the loss of filtrate in good drilling. The drilling fluids are used in the cementing and drilling of the oil well and offer a cost-effective and efficient drilling function, thereby allowing target depth and low damage. Furthermore, the exploration and production activities are allowing high extensive activities for non-oil origins such as shale gas, coal-bed methane, and others. According to China National Petroleum Corporation (CNPC), the natural gas produced in China was up by around 130.5 billion cubic meters in 2020, showing an increase of 36% from the year 2015. The requirement of advanced technology in E&P activities such as hydraulic fracturing is fulfilled by various formulated drilling fluids that help maintain the wellbore stability, pump pressure, and avoidance of friction and corrosion. The acrylamide terpolymers have the heterocyclic ring and are beneficial in shear degradation and viscosity. Furthermore, rising oil production and exploration projects are boosting the use of drilling fluids, thereby creating growth in the fluid loss additives market in the coming years.

Fluid Loss Additives Market Segment Analysis- By End-Use Industry

By end-use industry, the petroleum drilling industry segment has the largest share of more than 30% in 2021 and is expected to grow the fluid loss additives market size in the forecast period. The growing consumption of petroleum-based products is influencing the growth scope for the fluid loss additives industry. The rising upstream activities in the oil and gas sector, majorly exploration and production are creating a drive in the fluid loss additives market. The fluid loss additives have major applications in the petroleum drilling sector. The fluids in the petroleum sector are expensive and extensive losses can create major issues, including resource scarcity, thereby boosting the fluid oil additives consumption. However, the growing shale gas and shale oil developments are leading to an increase in global petroleum drilling activities and oil production.
