Published Date: | Report Code : MT1951521


Antifreeze Agents in Oil & Gas Market Dynamic:

Antifreeze agents are added to water in various industries, such as automotive, oil & gas, and others to lower the freezing point. These agents not only prevent the system from freezing or overheating but also from rusting and corroding. They are widely used in the oil & gas industry, as in this industry, pipelines are under the sea and the temperature can fall tremendously.

Segment Analysis:

On the basis of type, the market has been divided into organic, inorganic, and hybrid. As inorganic agents are made by using conventional sources of energy, they are toxic in nature. Hence, organic and hybrid antifreeze agents are preferred. Organic antifreeze agents are manufactured using corn, stover, and oil. Hybrid antifreeze agents are silicate- and phosphate-free, which make them a preferred choice. There has been a significant rise in demand for organic and hybrid antifreeze agents due to these reasons.

Based on product type, the antifreeze agents in oil & gas market has been segmented into ethylene glycol, propylene glycol, glycerin, calcium chloride, and others. Among these, ethylene glycol and propylene glycol are majorly used in the oil & gas industry.

Ethylene glycol is generally used in the natural gas pipeline, which is usually under the sea. Temperature is extremely low under water and salt water can corrode the pipelines. Thus, ethylene glycol prevents blockages from freezing temperatures and provides protection against corrosion.

Propylene glycol are manufactured using poly-organic acids to form a protective layer that prevents corrosion on metal components. Antifreeze agents not only help in controlling the temperature but are also used in gas hydrate inhibition, as an anti-solvent in crystallization process and an hydraulic fluid friction reducer.

Rapid industrialization and features of antifreeze agents, such as easy availability and affordable installation, are positively impacting market growth.

Increasing use of electric cars and fluctuating raw material prices that are used to manufacture antifreeze agents can hamper market growth.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:

  • Possess features such as easy availability and cost-effective installation
  • Increasing demand for eco-friendly antifreeze coolant
  • Rapid industrialization
