Polyanionic Cellulose Market: Overview
Polyanionic cellulose (PAC) are nonionic cellulose ether compounds, which are used as additives for water and drilling fluid applications. PAC contains higher degree of carboxymethyl and low amount of sodium chloride; thus offers superior properties such as reduced filtration loss, high calcium, and magnesium resistance. These compounds are easily soluble in water and can be used in brine water-based mud systems, seawater drilling, and fresh water drilling operations. PAC can also be used as a thickening agent, bond, stabilizer, colloid protector, suspending agent, and rheology controller. PAC are insoluble in most solvents and are hydroscopic in nature.
Polyanionic Cellulose Market: Trends & Demands
Rise in demand for drilling fluids with high rate of penetration and good bore stability, especially for rotary drillings systems drive the global polyanionic cellulose market. Increasing demand for drilling fluids with high salt and acid resistance is boosting the global polyanionic cellulose market. Additionally, rising demand for additives that increase the viscosity of fluids at high temperature (150°C) found in seawater, freshwater, and saturated brine well is estimated to propel the demand for polyanionic cellulose significantly during the forecast period. High production cost and fluctuation in raw material prices are expected to restrain the polyanionic cellulose market during the forecast period. However, rising in demand for PAC as a rheology controller, filtrate reducer, and colloid protector in various other end-user industries such as pharmaceutical and chemical is anticipated to create lucrative opportunities for the manufacturers that operate in the polyanionic cellulose market.
Polyanionic Cellulose Market: Key Segments
The global polyanionic cellulose market can be segmented in terms of product type and region. Based on product type, the polyanionic cellulose market can be split into PAC-HV (high viscosity), PAC-LV (low viscosity), and PAC-R (modified). PAC-HV is used to reduce filtration rate in water-based oils and gas drilling fluids. It also helps improve hole cleaning and suspension properties in drilling fluids by stabilizing and increasing the viscosity of a wide variety of fluids. PAC-LV aids in stabilizing gel strength and viscosity in various solids-laden, water-based drilling fluids. PAC-R is used to increase and stabilize viscosity, reduce API filtration rate, improve rheology of many water-based drilling fluids such as solids-free brines, saturated saltwater, freshwater, flocculated mud, inhibited mud, and contaminated systems.
Polyanionic Cellulose Market: Regional Outlook
In terms of region, the global polyanionic cellulose market can be classified into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America and Europe are leading consumers of polyanionic cellulose. Rising research & development activities in drilling and salt well operations in the upstream oil & gas industry and offshore exploration & production, especially in the U.S. is propelling the demand for polyniaonic cellulose in the country. Additionally, rising usage of PAC in drilling fluid applications due to its properties such as high stability in high temperature applications and high resistance to salty environments fuels its demand in the region. In Europe, France, the U.K., Germany, and Russia are major consumers of polyanionic cellulose. Rising demand for PAC as a food additive in the food & beverage industry and as an emulsifier & stabilizer in the manufacture of injectable medicines & tablets in the pharmaceutical industry is boosting the market in the region. Demand for PAC is expected to rise significantly in Asia Pacific during the forecast period due to its effective bonding properties. The polyanionic cellulose market in Middle East & Africa and Latin America is likely to expand at a moderate pace during the forecast period due to heavy reliance on product import.
