This is expected to counterbalance OPEC+ output declines, with the EIA estimating a 1.4 million b/d increase in 2023 and a 1.7 million b/d increase in 2024.  As several nations of the world embark on the journey of industrialization and modernization, demand for fossil fuels such as natural gas and oil will rise. Exploration of previously undiscovered places is being proposed to meet this requirement. Moreover, both the public and private sectors are investing heavily in the exploration of oil and gas has boosted the production from the oil and gas sector.

Improved Technology is to Boost the Growth of Drag Reducing Agent Market

In recent years, there were at least 2,381 operating oil and gas pipelines spread throughout 162 countries, according to the latest estimates. By positively modifying the frictional pressure in a pipeline or other conduit, the drag reducing agent addition acts as a Fluidifier additive to the crude oil mass. Drag Reduction Agent additive reduces turbulence-induced drag in the pipeline of the crude oil mass by altering the connections between molecules in the crude oil without changing the crude oil’s fundamental qualities. This reduces pipeline pressure, resulting in a greater amount of stream at the same pressure.

Drag Reducing Agent, Segmentation by Type

  • Polymer
  • Surfactant

On the basis of type, the polymer segment in drag reducing agent market is expected to be responsible for the largest market revenue share over the projected time frame. Polymers are essential for the efficient transfer of natural gas and crude oil. Therefore, the rising investment in oil and gas production is expected to drive the segment’s growth. Oil and gas upstream capital expenditures climbed by 39% in 2022 to $499 billion, the greatest amount since 2014 and the highest year-on-year increase recorded. Higher expenses are mostly driving an upsurge in investment, but production has also begun to rebound.

Drag Reducing Agent, Segmentation by End User

  • Petrochemical
  • Oil & Gas
  • Water Treatment

On the basis of end user, the petrochemical segment is expected to gain the highest market revenue over the forecasted period. The growth of the segment is expected to the growing number of vehicles in the world. In 2023, there will be around 1.474 billion vehicles on the planet. Around 19% of such vehicles are registered in the United States. This will increase the demand for petrol and diesel. On the other hand, the water treatment segment is expected to garner significant revenue over the forecast period. The growth of the segment is majorly attributed to the rising demand need for suppling fresh water and the growing need for water treatment. Around 74% of the world’s population has a supply of safe drinking water. Despite advancements, there are still around 2 billion people worldwide who are in desperate of clean drinking water services.
