In addition, the report explores emerging opportunities in the surfactant EOR market.

Surfactant EOR Market: Overview

EOR stands for enhanced oil recovery which defines the practice of extracting oil in places or wells that have already undergone the previous process of oil recovery. EOR has shown potential to become one of the only few ways of accessing almost 80% of the world’s untouched oil reserves. There are multiple methods of conducting EOR and one such practice includes the use of surfactant, which is classified as a chemical EOR.

Surfactants are described as compounds that aid reduction in surface tension between a gas and a liquid, between two liquids, or between a solid and a liquid. They may be used as emulsifiers, detergents, foaming, or wetting agents.

Covid-19 Impact

The global market cap was severely impacted during the pandemic. As per an S & P report, Covid-19 impacted the global economy thus reducing the global demand for oil by 2.5 million barrels per day. Other factors that contributed to a low CAGR during the projection period were a halt in operational activities and concerns related to transportation.

Surfactant EOR Market: Growth Drivers

Growing demand in the oil & gas sector to propel market growth

The global surfactant EOR market is projected to grow owing to the increasing demand and requirement for oil & gas in the ever-growing commercial world along with a high urbanization rate further propelling the demand for a constant supply of oil & gas. One of the main reasons why the global oil & gas industry is witnessing high growth is the steady economic growth, which results in a higher need for energy. However, since oil & gas are non-renewable sources of energy, they have been declining at a constant rate due to overconsumption through the decades. As per official records, the world has around 47 years' worth of oil left in natural reservoirs and is depleting at a rate of 15%. On the other side, the demand for energy resources is at an all-time high.

Surfactant EOR Market: Restraints

Instability of surfactants in harsh conditions to restrict market expansion

Surfactants are highly unstable when used in harsh reservoir conditions which act as a major restraining factor for the global market trend. Due to these properties, various market players opt for different ways of enhanced oil recovery because surfactants have to be carefully chosen after analyzing the reservoir conditions which may act as an additional step in an already lengthy process or EOR.

Surfactant EOR Market: Opportunities

Growing research & innovation activities to provide excellent expansion opportunities

The global surfactant EOR market cap is projected to benefit from the increasing research & development activities associated with EOR for instance selection of hybrid methods using two or more forms of chemical process for maximum yield or the addition of bio-based chemicals having a lesser negative impact on the environment along with collaboration activities with research centers. All of these factors may create growth opportunities in the coming years.

Surfactant EOR Market: Challenges

High adsorption rate a major challenge during growth trend

Surfactants exhibit a high adsorption rate which refers to the adhesion of ions, atoms, and molecules from liquid, gas, or any dissolved solid to a given surface. This leads to the creation of a film of the adsorbate product on the adsorbent surface and diminishes the EOR output thus leading to a reduced return on investment. Navigating through these problems is a major challenge for global market players.

Surfactant EOR Market: Segmentation

The global surfactant EOR market is segments based on type, origin, application, category, and region

Based on type, the global market segments are coconut diethanolamide, alkyl propoxy sulfate sodium salts, di-tridecyl sulfosuccinic acid ester, and alkyl polyglycosides. The global market witnessed a CAGR in the alkyl polyglycosides in 2021 owing to the wide application of the surfactant in most oil & gas companies. The compound is known to perform exceptionally well without hampering the quality of the product. ExxonMobil, the largest oil & gas company in the US, made over USD 23 billion in 2021.

By origin, the global market is fragmented into biosurfactants and surfactants with the latter leading the global market value. Biosurfactants are of microbial origin and may grow at a high CAGR in the coming years due to concerns about the negative impact of purely chemical-based surfactants. The cost of lipopeptide surfactants falls between USD 20 to USD 130 per milligram.

Based on application, the global market is segmented into offshore and onshore, with the former leading with the highest CAGR due to the expertise of certain companies in managing activities related to the oil & gas sector, one of the fastest-growing industrial segments. In offshore activities risks are reduced and growth potential is further expanded. Hibernia, the world's biggest offshore plant, was estimated to have been built at the cost of USD 6 billion.

Based on category, the global market is divided into bio-based and petroleum-based. Although the latter currently leads the global market there have been growing investments toward the development of bio-based surfactants and the segment may witness high revenue in the coming years. Currently, surfactant production in the US is based on 60% oleochemical feedstock and 40% petrochemicals.

Recent Developments:

  • In September 2020, BASF, a Germany-based largest chemical producer in the world, announced that the company has completed the installation of injection plants for enhanced oil recovery polymers in Argentina. These units are expected to help minimize polymer degradation and are essential parts of the large-scale chemical flooding projects conducted to improve oil-recovery rates.
  • In October 2021, Pertmina, an Indonesian national energy giant, announced its plan to invest USD 3 billion in the Rokan Block during the next five years. The move came after the company took over operations of Rokan Block from Chevron. Company leaders announced they are looking for partners to participate in a joint venture to develop a chemical EOR technology.
