Barium Petroleum Sulfonate provides good protective coating films and high resistance to humidity & saline water. Barium petroleum sulfonate is extensively used in drilling fluids during hydrocarbon drilling operations. Growing energy demand leading to increased drilling operations across the globe is expected to complement the barium petroleum sulfonate market.
Shifting drilling trend towards deeper and harsher formations necessitates the use of higher density drilling fluids, thereby requiring more barium petroleum sulfonate per well. Such favorable trends are expected to further aid the industry. Recent spurt in unconventional hydrocarbon exploration is a major factor that is expected to favor growth over the near future. Owing to its applications as a rust inhibitor across various industries, rapid industrialization, particularly in the emerging economies is presumed to complement the market over the forecast period.
Regulations related to drilling fluids and environmental concerns regarding the drilling fluid disposal are anticipated to negatively impact the global barium petroleum sulfonate market over the next seven years. Volatile hydrocarbon prices lead to fluctuating investment levels by oil & gas companies in hydrocarbon exploration & production activities. Such fluctuations are expected to hinder market growth in the near future.
Government initiatives to address the energy deficit concerns are presumed to encourage the hydrocarbon exploration and development activities. Such favorable initiatives promise huge opportunities for the global barium petroleum sulfonate market participants. R&D initiatives to develop superior products with wide applications offer ample opportunities for industry growth and development.
North America dominated the global barium petroleum sulfonate consumption market over the recent years. This trend is presumed to continue on account of extensive drilling operations being carried out in these regions. Fervent shale gas exploration in North America is expected to assist the regional market. Middle East & Africa are presumed to witness rapid rise in consumption owing to massive onshore and offshore hydrocarbon discoveries. Ardent initiatives by governments to develop their domestic hydrocarbon scenario, especially in countries with high energy consumption such as China, India, Brazil, and the U.S, are expected to drive the respective regional markets.
