Demulsifier Market by Type (Oil Soluble, Water- Soluble), Application (Crude Oil Production, Petro Refineries, Lubricant Manufacturing Process, Oil-based Power Plants, Sludge Oil Treatment Process), Region

The global demulsifier market size is projected to reach USD 2.6 billion by 2025 from USD 2.1 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period. Demulsifiers are specialty chemicals designed for breaking emulsions. They are commonly used in the processing of crude oil, where water and salt are removed from crude oil before refining, to prevent corrosion. They are surface-active agents, which act to neutralize the effect of emulsifying agents. They act on the emulsion by flocculation of oil droplets, dropping of water, and coalescence of water droplets.

Based on type, the demulsifier market is segmented into oil soluble and water soluble. The oil soluble segment is expected to witness higher growth between 2020 and 2025. The most effective demulsifiers for separating water-in-oil emulsion are oil-soluble demulsifiers as oil is the continuous phase, and water is the dispersed phase. Therefore, the surfactants will be absorbed directly into the continuous phase without any resistance at the optimum temperature. The type of demulsifiers to be used depends on the type of emulsion that needs to be separated. Demulsifiers act on the water-oil interface resulting in the dispersion of water droplets. Oil-soluble demulsifiers are primarily used in the processing of crude oil, which contains a significant amount of saline water as they are relatively more effective in separating water from oil. These factors are expected to drive the demand for oil-soluble demulsifiers.

Based on application, the demulsifier market is segmented into crude oil, petro refineries, lubricant manufacturing, oil-based power plants, sludge oil treatment, and others. Crude oil is the largest and fastest-growing segment in terms of both volume and value. Crude oil, when produced, contains BS&W (basic sediment & water). Crude oil produced needs to be processed as it contains oil-water emulsion. The stability of the emulsion depends on various factors, such as the quality of crude oil, the geology of the well site, and whether the oil field is offshore or onshore. To break this oil-water emulsion, demulsifier/emulsion breakers are used. During the transportation of crude oil to petro refineries, the quantity of residual water and salt content needs to be within the specified limits. Higher BS&W and salt content are likely to result in the corrosion of pipelines. The rising demand for better handling and processing of crude oil is expected to drive the demand for demulsifiers in crude oil application.

The Middle East is estimated to be the largest market for demulsifiers during the forecast period in terms of both volume and value. The region holds considerable growth potential for extensive oil and gas production and drilling activities, which play an important role in propelling the demand for demulsifiers in the country. Saudi Arabia mostly contains brown oilfields, which have been producing crude oil for more than 60 years. For instance, the Ghawar oilfield of Saudi Arabia had water cut in the range of 27–38% during 1993–2003. The water cut in the older oilfields is projected to increase in the coming years, thus making the Middle East the largest market for demulsifiers.
