Demulsifier Market Sales Revenue, Industry Growth, Top Leaders, Future Plans and Opportunity Assessment 2028

The demulsifier market size is projected to grow from USD 2,236.4 million in 2021 to USD 2,949.4 million in 2028. Government bodies of various countries are implementing strict norms on the usage of certain toxic chemicals. Hence, companies are trying to develop green demulsifier. The Journal of the Japan Petroleum Institute, for instance, mentioned in a study that extracts of vegetable oils, such as coconut and olive, as well as green tea are considered to be some of the environmentally friendly emulsion breakers. As per a report by Fortune Business Insights™, titled, “Demulsifier Market, 2021-2028,” the market stood at USD 2,150.0 million in 2020. It is set to grow at a CAGR of 4.0% during the forecast period between 2021-2028.

Trucent and Croda Join Hands to Manufacture ‘Ascent’ Emulsion Breaker Chemistry

In June 2019, Croda International Plc collaborated with Trucent Inc. to distribute and manufacture a state-of-the-art emulsion breaker chemistry named Ascent. It would help in enhancing distiller’s corn oil (DCO) recovery across their ethanol plants. In addition to this, it would combine the skill sets and knowledge of both companies to accelerate innovation and sustainability. As per a company official, “This partnership would link both our expertise to provide unique and high performance chemistry. Ascent will definitely be a game changer for ethanol producers.”

Reduced Demand for Oil to Hinder Growth of Market amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The disrupted economic stability and containment measures because of the COVID-19 pandemic have resulted in the halt of production worldwide. Hence, the demand for oil has also declined. The International Energy Agency (IEA) mentioned in April 2020 that the demand for oil has reduced by 30% compared to 2019. It is set to affect growth of the market amid the pandemic.

Drivers & Restraints-

Increasing Usage of Highly-efficient Chemical Emulsifiers to Augment Growth

The high demand for various petroleum products, such as liquefied petroleum gas, diesel, butane, kerosene, and fuel oil from end-users is anticipated to drive the demulsifier market growth in the upcoming years. Also, the rising usage of chemical products that can break down demulsifier that are extracted during oil exploration activities would also affect growth positively. Various chemical emulsifiers, such as dendrimers, biodegradable polymeric surfactants, and polyether are highly efficient because of their robust affinity towards water-oil interface. However, government norms regarding the usage of chemical emulsion breakers owing to their harmful properties may obstruct growth.
