Summary

Table of Contents

Oilfield surfactants are the part of specialty oilfield chemicals that are used in drilling, production and stimulation. Surfactants in oilfields act as detergents, corrosion inhibitors, emulsifiers and so on. Surfactants are in wide ranges that can be classified as anionic, non-ionic, cationic, amphoteric and others.

The advent of enhanced oil recovery technologies has facilitated increased use of surfactants. Surfactants that meet the environmental regulations and performance norms witness high demand. The most popular surfactant is anionic due to its properties and is of low cost compared to other surfactants. However, the types of surfactant to be used is end user specific based on the end location to be used.

Anionic surfactants when dissociated in water produce amphiphilic anion and a cation. They are primarily used as wetting agents, dispersants, emulsifiers, foaming agents and corrosion inhibitors. The growing number of oil spills has resulted in increased use of dispersants in order to separate the oil particles for cleaning. Non-ionic surfactants have no charge on the hydrophilic head when dissociated in water and are the second largest segment in the oilfield surfactants market, after anionic surfactants.

These do not ionize in water due to a non-dissociable hydrophilic head. Non-ionic surfactants are environmentally and biologically safe due to low carcinogenic and mutagenic toxicity. Cationic surfactants when dissociated in water produce amphiphilication and an anion. The growing shale gas refinery market is set to propel demand for cationic surfactants, particularly as corrosion inhibitors and emulsifiers. Corrosion Inhibitors are the key application for cationic surfactants.

The report analyses the oilfield surfactants market in various applications and covers the market demand with respective regions.
