    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.

    • Global oil and gas drilling chemicals market set to reach $10.65 billion in 2023. The market is forecast to reach $12.92 billion by the end of 2026, with a CAGR of 7.5 percent. Overall upstream spending is expected to increase by 13% in 2023, amounting to around $460 billion. Higher spending is primarily attributed to overall cost inflation for the companies, which is expected to bbl. be around 8-10% for the year. Companies are set to follow strict capital discipline similar to 2022 for continued returns & cash flows.

Upstream is set for growth in 2023 but cost inflation will remain key concern. New exploration activities increased in Europe, Latin America, Middle East & Africa. High-cost inflation is leading to lower drilling capacity addition. For 2023, around 8-10 percent cost inflation is expected for the upstream industry

    Porter's Analysis on Drilling Chemicals

    Supplier Power

    • 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

    • 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
