Enhanced Oil Recovery Market Size Worth $62.1 Billion By 2027

August 2020 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Enhanced Oil Recovery Market Growth & Trends

The global enhanced oil recovery market size is expected to reach USD 62.1 billion by 2027, escalating at a CAGR of 3.7% over the forecast period, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. A growing number of ageing wells witnessing declining production rates coupled with rising government investment in research and development activities is likely to drive the market over the forecast period.

Increasing technological advancements are enabling E&P companies to revive old wells and thus attain optimum production. This trend is estimated to positively influence industry growth. The increasing number of mature wells and investments in R&D activities for new technology development by various market players to improve the oil recovery process will result in the growth of the industry.

Industry participants enter into several strategic collaborations, such as mergers & acquisitions and joint ventures, to expand their foothold across various regional markets and develop economic technologies. The technologies used in enhanced oil recovery (EOR) are mostly in-housed by the companies. To further reduce the overall operational costs, market players procure raw materials, such as nitrogen, carbon dioxide, polymer, and others, from small-scale regional companies.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely disrupted the oil & gas market with drastically plummeting oil prices resulting in delayed drilling projects. Moreover, the demand for crude oil is anticipated to drop further due to reduced industrial activity and transport. These factors are expected to negatively affect market growth in the near future.
