Key Market Restraint -

Key Market Restraint – Fluctuating crude oil prices

The primary market driver for the global produced water treatment market is the strict rules and regulations regarding the treatment of produced water. The produced water should be treated in such a way that it can be used for non-potable purposes.  An increase in demand for oil and gas in countries, growth in downstream activities and economical extraction of shale gas are expected to influence the produced water treatment market positively. As a result of low and fluctuating crude oil prices, investment in oil and gas has reduced significantly. This acts as a significant restraint for produced water treatment market.

Key Players Covered:

Some of the notable companies in the global produced water treatment market are Frames, ProSep, Schlumberger, Veolia Water Technologies, Pentair, MIOX, Filtra Systems, Ecolab, CDM Smith, Ecosphere Technologies, Inc., EMIT Group, Eco-Tec Inc., Parker Hannifin, Carus Group Inc., and IDE Technologies.

Regional Analysis:

The global produced water treatment market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the produced water treatment market. Shale gas exploration and extraction activities have been gaining traction in the USA. The companies have been shifting to frugal, economical and innovative technology to reduce the cost of fracking or extraction of shale gas. Offshore oil exploration and extraction activities are increasing in the USA. The USA also has several old oil wells that require refurbishment, modernization, and upgradation. The upstream and downstream activities have increased in the US. Several new oil and gas pipelines have been proposed in the US. From these trends, it is anticipated to boost the produced water treatment market in North America.

Middle-East and Africa are expected to positively influence the produced water treatment market. Middle-East is the largest exporter of oil and gas in the world. The oil and gas production existing sites in the Middle East are several years old and require regular maintenance activities to avoid downtime. Some of these sites require refurbishment, upgradation, and modernization to operate at the highest efficiency. The oil and gas reserves in the African region have been untapped and unexplored. The oil and gas exploration and extraction activities in the ocean water surrounding the African continent have been gaining traction. Asia-Pacific will play a significant role in the produced water treatment market.
