Friction Reducers Market

Friction Reducers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast 2017 - 2025

Friction Reducers Market - Outline

Friction reducers have high demand in the oil and gas industry and is additionally discovering broad use in automotive sector, in this way driving its interest. Another significant factor augmenting the need for friction reducers is the fact that these reducers help to decrease the level of freshwater waste. Friction reducers are along these lines harmless to the ecosystem and support the approaches and guidelines set by government and other natural bodies. With expanding water shortage, discovering an answer which limits water wattage is turning into a significant factor behind the popularity for friction reducers around the world.

Friction reducers permit the augmentation of the existence of car motors. The mechanical existence of car motors is drawn out as in the utilization of friction reducer diminishes the metal to metal wear. The rising popularity for engineered anionic polymers by virtue of the utilization for water powered incitement in shale gas, tight gas repository, and other tight developments will further promote growth of this market. Notwithstanding, manufactured and ionic polymers are inadmissible in profoundly ionic frameworks as cations can essentially achieve a decrease in their productivity. Since the expense of cationic friction reducers are extensively high, the ordinary anionic sort friction reducer is utilized progressively and is in much interest.

Global Friction Reducers Market: Brief Overview

The global friction reducers market is primarily driven by its high use in  hydraulic fracturing within the oil industry. Friction reducers are primarily used in the oil and gas industry and is also finding extensive use in the automobile industry, thus driving its demand. Another important factor which is pushing the demand for friction reducers is the fact that it can help reduce the wastage of freshwater. Friction reducers are thus environmentally friendly and supports the policies and regulations set by government and other environmental bodies. With increasing water scarcity, finding a solution which minimizes water wattage is becoming an important factor behind the high demand for friction reducers worldwide. All these factors are leading to a heightened use of friction reducers within the oil and gas industry.

Apart from the oil and gas industry, friction reducers are also used in the automobile industry. Friction reducers allow the extension of the life of automobile engines. The mechanical life of automobile engines is prolonged in the sense that the use of friction reducer reduces the metal to metal wear.

With increasing hydraulic fracturing of the shale oil and gas reserves it is expected that the demand for friction reducers will increase worldwide. All these factors are expected to ensure a positive growth of the global friction reducers market in the period from 2017 to 2025.

Global Friction Reducers: Market Trends And Opportunities

Among the different types of friction reducers such as anionic synthetic polymers, non anionic synthetic polymers, cationic friction reducers, synthetic polymers, and Guar, there is a high demand for synthetic anionic polymers. This high demand is majorly on account of the use for hydraulic stimulation in shale gas,  tight gas reservoir, and other tight formations. However, synthetic and ionic polymers are unsuitable in highly ionic systems as cations can significantly bring about a reduction in their efficiency. Since the cost of cationic friction reducers is considerably high, the conventional anionic type friction reducer is used increasingly and is in much demand.

Global Friction Reducers: Market Geographical Analysis

On the basis of geography, the global friction reducers market is segmented into Latin America, North America, the Middle East in Africa, Europe, and Asia Pacific. Among all these regions, North America is currently leading in the global friction reducers market. The advancements in horizontal drilling, availability of abundant water for fracking, hydraulic fracking, and mineral rights licensing are some of the important factors which have helped North America's development of shale gas and oil reserves. This has subsequently benefited the North American friction reducers market. The main reason why friction reducers are being used extensively in the oilfield stimulation chemicals market is because they help in promoting laminar flow in pipe which decreases friction pressure during the pumping of low viscosity and slick water type fracture treatments.

While North America is leading in terms of value, Asia Pacific is also witnessing rapid growth in the friction reducers market. In addition to these two regions, the friction reducers market is also expected to do well in Latin America, Europe, and the Middle East and Africa. All these three regions are expected to witness a healthy expansion within the friction reducers market between 2017 and 2025.
