CDU Heat Exchanger Antifoulants Market expected at a CAGR of ~ 3.1% & US$ 165.0 Mn during the forecast period 2022–2028

Growing environmental concerns across the globe has triggered the adoption of devices and equipment that aid in providing a cleaner environment. In the wake of this, industries worldwide are striving to adhere to the policies that have been implemented by the governments in order to maintain a competitive edge in the global market.

One such chemical that is added in the heat exchanger equipment in oil refineries is antifoulants that help in saving the machine from any form of corrosion. Corrosion inhibitors are used in machineries as they provide long-term benefits such as reducing the corrosion and improving safety of the operational equipment.

In order to retain their position in the market, companies are fiercely competing against each other. Their awareness regarding the importance of maintaining their machineries and equipment has increased.

They are also expanding the oil refineries according to the growing application needs and their ability to handle the challenges of the industry. Some of the leading companies operating in the market are BAKER HUGHES, a GE Company, Dorf Ketal, CHIMEC SpA, Croda International Plc, CRISTOL, Eonchemical, Chematek S.p.A., Expert Chem SERV, Innospec, and SUEZ.

According to a report published by Future Market Insights (FMI), the global CDU heat exchanger antifoulants market is expected to witness a CAGR of 2.9% from 2022 to 2028. In 2017, the market was worth US$ 144.6 Mn in 2017 and is estimated to rise to a valuation of US$ 197.6 Mn by the end of 2028.

Historical (2013-2021) CDU Heat Exchanger Antifoulants Market Outlook Compared to Forecast (2022-2028)Sales of CDU heat exchanger antifoulants increased at a CAGR of 2.4% between 2013 and 2021, with countries such as the U.S., China, and Russia accounting for a substantial portion of the global market. Sales prospects in 2020 and 2021 were dampened due to the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic, which reduced the demand for CDU heat exchanger antifoulants.

The rise in global power consumption is increasing demand of the CDU heat exchanger antifoulant. Besides this, the shift of manufacturers towards emerging regional markets such as India and Brazil is expected to continue pushing sales of CDU heat exchanger antifoulants.

The decreased frequency of intensive cleaning of heat exchangers with these antifoulants is expected to bode well for the global CDU heat exchanger antifoulant market in the forthcoming years.

Changing Geopolitical Scenario, Coupled with Growing Awareness Regarding the Use of Safe Equipment, Poised to Benefit MarketGlobalization, population explosion, and economic changes have not only contributed to the crude oil industry, but have also resulted in a rise in the standards of the oil and gas services. The formulation of fouling deposits can have a number of effects. For instance, it can decrease heat transfer, impede fluid flow, and impair safe operation of equipment. In recent times, people have become vigilant towards the safe operation of equipment, which, in turn, is expected to accelerate growth of the antifoulant market over the forecast period.

Moreover, huge amounts of fuel additives are utilized in the manufacturing of crude oil. These additives act as the backbone of refinery sectors across the globe. Refineries strive for reliability and processing flexibility with minimal fouling and impurities. An antifoulant treatment program is the result of the incentive loss. Burgeoning use of fuel additives for the purpose of oil purity, in turn, is anticipated to boost demand for antifoulants. Spin-off-benefits are acquired with treatment programs, which are more important than sustainable benefits.

Fluctuating Oil Prices to Limit Market ExpansionFeedstock for naphthenic oil and paraffinic oil is processed from base oil, which in turn is a derivative of crude oil. Thereby, the prices of these base oils tend to be unhinged and volatile as they are subject to the uncertainty occurring in the prices of crude oil. This instability shakes the profitability of manufacturers and in turn, may inhibit market growth. The petro specialty market is majorly dependent on import and sudden change in oil prices hampers the regional import trade, thus hindering the growth of crude distillation unit heat exchanger antifoulants market.
