Oilfield Chemicals: United States

ABOUT THIS REPORT

Scope and Method
This report forecasts US oilfield chemical demand in US dollars at the manufacturers’
level. Total demand is segmented by product in terms of:




drilling fluids
stimulation and EOR (enhanced oil recovery) chemicals
production chemicals
completion and workover fluids
cement and cement additives.

Excluded from the scope of this report are oilfield services, and, as a result, the market
data presented in this report may differ from other estimates that utilize different
definitions and encompass additional or different products. Note that demand figures
include cement, which is not often included in oilfield chemical statistics, and exclude
gases such as those used in EOR operations and proppants used in well stimulation
activity.
Total demand and the various segments are sized at five-year intervals for historical
years 2006 and 2011 with a forecast to 2016. Forecasts emanate from the identification
and analysis of pertinent statistical relationships and other historical trends/events as
well as their expected progression/impact over the forecast period. Changes in
quantities between reported years of a given total or segment are typically provided in
terms of five-year compound annual growth rates (CAGRs). For the sake of brevity,
forecasts are generally stated in smoothed CAGR-based descriptions to the forecast
year, such as “demand is projected to rise 3.2% annually through 2016.” The result of
any particular year over that period, however, may exhibit volatility and depart from a
smoothed, long-term trend, as historical data typically illustrate.
Key macroeconomic indicators are also provided at five-year intervals with CAGRs for
the years corresponding to other reported figures. Other various topics, including
profiles of pertinent leading suppliers, are covered in this report. A full outline of report
items by page is available in the Table of Contents.
