Market Opportunities

  • Growth in the oil and gas industry
  • Technological advancements in drug reducing agents manufacturing

Market Definition

Drag reducers or drag-reducing polymers are additives in the pipeline that reduce turbulence in the pipeline. Often used in oil pipelines, they increase the capacity of the pipeline by reducing turbulence, allowing the oil to flow more efficiently.

Global Drag Reducing Agents Market Dynamics

Drivers

  • Growth in the energy production industry

The growth in energy production, particularly in the oil and gas industry, has led to an expansion of pipeline networks to transport these resources over long distances. The drag-reducing agents are increasingly used across the oil & gas refining and transportation industries to enhance the pipeline capacity and increase laminar flow. As pipelines extend, the demand for drag-reducing agents to improve the flow of these products grows.

  • Increasing use of drag-reducing agents in medical applications

The increasing use of drag-reducing agents in medical applications is the key trend in the market. Drag-reducing agents are proven to be beneficial for blood circulation and helpful in treating cardiovascular diseases. These agents are administered for metastasizing tumor cells. These agents reduce drag in veins and arteries and regularize blood flow. This prevents potential tumor cells from settling down and deprives them of nutrients.

Opportunities

  • The rising need for efficient transportation of petrochemicals

Drag-reducing agent reduces frictional pressure loss during fluid flow in a conduit or pipeline. Reducing the amount of turbulent motion in the flow reduces pressure loss. By employing DRA, it is possible to increase flow and use the same amount of energy or to lower pressure drop while maintaining the same rate of fluid flow in pipes. In petroleum production systems, increasing flow capacity and pumping rates is difficult because of drag or frictional losses. In order to reduce drag and enhance the fluid's capacity to flow or pump at the rates needed to reach the desired flow rate or improve transportation efficiency, drag-reducing agents are typically added to the fluid. Recent advancements in nanotechnology have widened the use of DRA in oil field systems. The rising need for efficient transportation of petrochemicals is creating new growth opportunities for drag-reducing agents in the forecast period.

Restraints/Challenges

  • Rising investments in electric vehicles

The EV industry is growing rapidly and sales are becoming large enough to create substantial profit pools for well-positioned investors. Several benefits are associated with the EV sector, for instance, the transition to EVs has the potential to significantly reduce the import bill of crude oil due to its reduced demand.
