Global Market Overview for Drilling Chemicals
The global market for drilling chemicals is estimated to be at $10.65 billion in 2023. The global upstream activity registered strong growth in January 2023. Oil companies and service providers witnessed cost inflation due to shortage and supply constraints in equipment, material and labor. 2022 registered as the strongest year for oil & gas exploration in the past decade.

Porter's Analysis on Drilling Chemicals
Drilling chemicals are a mandatory requirement during oilfield drilling operations. Due to the war-led chemicals price hike, suppliers have moderate to high power currently
High input costs for suppliers especially in Europe will result in price hikes for products
Key chemicals registered severe hike in prices amid supply disruption due to war. These costs are transferred to customers as high prices of production chemicals
Barriers to New Entrants
Drilling chemicals are commodity based and can be easily manufactured with right technology. Capex requirement for drilling chemicals manufacturing is low. However, suppliers requires oil and gas expertise for entering into the business
The market is highly competitive with many players, acquiring a steady contract would be a challenge for new entrants
Therefore, the barriers to new entrants are low to medium
Intensity of Rivalry
The market is fragmented with many global and regional suppliers
Technology is available to many suppliers. The supplier market is mostly driven by wider service capability, economy of scale, and cost effectiveness of the services
Low switching cost. Easy to switch among suppliers with a little product differentiation. The intensity of rivalry is higher
Threat of Substitutes
- There is no substitute available for drilling chemicals. However, internal substitution, such as using of water-based fluids in place of oil-based fluids exists
- Buyer power currently is medium, as most buyers are invariably exposed to price hikes, as suppliers are transferring their soaring input costs to the customers. Logistics constraints and cost increase are another added factor price hike, which the buyer has limited control
