Low-Dosage Hydrate Inhibitors (LDHIs) Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Anti-Agglomerate (AA) Inhibitors, Kinetic Hydrate Inhibitors (KHI)), By Application (Onshore, Offshore) and regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI103698 | Status : Ongoing



The low dosage hydrate inhibitor (LDHI) is an active hydrate inhibitor type, which is used in the prevention of hydrates gas formation at high pressure and lower temperature conditions. As per the consumer requirements, different technologies of LDHIs are deployed which include kinetic hydrate inhibitors (KHI) and anti-agglomerate (AA) inhibitors. Furthermore, the low dosage hydrate inhibitor is cost-effective and provides efficient control and oversees hydrates, which aid to maintain pipeline and flowline safe & secure from icy blockages. The LDHIs are mostly used in the offshore and onshore operations in the oil & gas industry.

In oil & gas industry, the demand for low dosage hydrate inhibitor is rising due to the prevention of gas hydrates. The hydrates are created when some liquids, natural gases, and water come in contact at a certain pressure and temperature conditions. The agglomeration or formation of the gas hydrates creates a plug that terminates oil & gas flow in the pipeline. Also, when the hydrate is heated it causes pipe ruptures. These negative impacts of gas hydrate surge the demand for low dosage hydrate inhibitor, owing to its cost-effective property. Hence, rising product demand in the oil & gas industry will fuel the market growth during the forecast timeline.   

However, low awareness amongst the consumer regarding the use and benefits of low dosage hydrate inhibitor reduces the consumption and raise the demand for substitute approaches such as high throughput experimentation (HTE) and thermodynamic inhibitors. Hence, this is anticipated to restrict the market growth.

Key Market Driver -

Rising use of low dosage hydrate inhibitor in the oil & gas industry to drive the market growth

Key Market Restraint -

Low awareness of the low dosage hydrate inhibitor to restrict the market growth
