Produced Water Treatment Systems Market Overview
Global produced water treatment systems market is projected to reach US$6.2 billion by 2020 at an estimated CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period. Produced water has few chemical characteristics of hydrocarbon formations as it has been in contact with hydrocarbons such as oil & gas. This generated water from oil and gas industry is either reused or disposed of due to stringent water disposal norms. Produced water may consist of water from the reservoir, previously injected water and production enhancement chemicals. Therefore, treatment of such water requires series of treatment processes to ensure the quality of treated water.
By technology, produced water treatment technologies market is segmented as primary treatment systems, secondary treatment systems and tertiary treatment systems. Secondary treatment systems segment dominates the total market accounting around 38.1% of market revenues in 2014. Despite being the smallest part is 2014, tertiary treatment systems are identified as the fastest growing market during the forecast period with CAGR of 9.1%. Though primary treatment systems account for a significant market share in 2014, it is projected to grow at lower CAGR during the forecast period.
Water treatment technologies such as ultra-filtration (polymer membrane), forward osmosis, membrane distillation and adsorption are likely to emerge as commercially available water treatment technologies by 2020.
As of 2014, North America dominates the market and accounts for around 37.1% of the global market, followed by Asia Pacific and Europe. North America produced water treatment systems market is expected to reach US$2.6 Bnby 2020. In 2014, Europe and Asia Pacific were the other main contributors to the total market. These regions together accounted for around 43% of the global market in 2014. Though Latin America accounted for a miniscule share of the overall market, it is expected to register a substantial growth rate during the forecast period.
Drivers and Trends
Increasing unconventional oil & gas production, rising oil to produced water ratio, growing regulatory standards and water scarcity are few of the key driving factors of the global produced water treatment systems market. Produced water reinjection is becoming the norm in the petroleum industry. In 2014 alone, 201.4 Bn barrels of produced water were generated from oil and gas wells across the globe. Of these, 68% barrels water was disposed of, and rest was re-injected into oil fields, both onshore and offshore. As a resultant, produced water volumes are expected to rise to over 340 Bn barrels by 2020. Also, offshore reinjection is anticipated to display the fastest CAGR of 23% from 2014 to 2020, followed by onshore reinjection.
