Increase in Demand for Monochloroacetic Acid in Oil & Gas Industry Likely to Boost Market

Increase in demand for crude oil and natural gas is encouraging Exploration and Production (E&P) firms to engage in extensive drilling activities. The global monochloroacetic acid market is projected to expand significantly during the forecast period owing to the rise in drilling activities in land and offshore rigs. Hence, increase in demand for carboxymethyl cellulose in oil and gas drilling activities is expected to drive the monochloroacetic acid market.

The growth of the monochloroacetic acid market can be ascribed to the rise in demand for carboxymethyl cellulose, as monochloroacetic acid is used in the manufacture of carboxymethyl cellulose. Globally, more than 30% of the monochloroacetic acid is used in the production of carboxymethyl cellulose. Carboxymethyl cellulose is used as a viscosifier in drilling muds for drilling of boreholes for the extraction of oil and gas. It balances physical parameters such as viscosity, thereby reducing the loss of water and increasing the thixotropy of the oil. It also arrests the growth of fungus while drilling mud, thereby terminating the need of preservatives and pH level indicators in the mud. Therefore, demand for monochloroacetic acid is directly proportional to the usage of carboxymethyl cellulose for oil exploration and rig drilling activities.

Carboxymethyl Cellulose Segment to Gain Momentum

The report presents a detailed segmentation of the global monochloroacetic acid market based on product and application. In terms of application, the carboxymethyl cellulose segment constituted major share of the global monochloroacetic acid market in 2018. Carboxymethyl cellulose act as thickener, rheology modifier, water retention aid, filtration reducer, binder, dispersant, protective colloid, and floating aid. Carboxymethyl cellulose is used in detergents, drilling fluids, food, mining, paper, textiles. It is also used in the form of viscosifier for retaining loss of fluid during drilling. Carboxymethyl cellulose is also employed in iron ore pelletization and froth flotation. It also increases the quantity and quality of the valuable mineral by deactivating undesired impurities in the gangue depressant process. The carboxymethyl cellulose segment is projected to account for dominant share of the global monochloroacetic acid market during the forecast period.

Carbon Fiber Tape Market – Demand for electric vehicles is likely to increase across the globe in the next few years. Under the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015, almost all countries except the U.S. have joined hands to keep the overall increase in global temperature to below 2°C. This would help decrease the adverse impact of climate change. Countries such as Norway, Iceland, the Netherlands, and China are providing subsidies to boost the electric vehicles sales in order to lower the carbon emission. Production and sale of electric vehicles are estimated to increase owing to rising environmental concerns in countries such as India and China in Asia Pacific. This, in turn, is likely to boost carbon fiber tape market in the next few years.


Industrial Cleaners Market – The total worth of the global industrial cleaners market is set to increase in the years to follow. The industrial or manufacturing sector is governed by several policies and standards pertaining to cleanliness, hygiene, and sanitization. The presence of a seamless manufacturing domain that is quick to adopt new technologies meant for cleaning and sanitizing the premises shall aid market growth. Several industrial units have had their licenses revoked on account of their inability to meet proper standards. Furthermore, governments have remained steadfast in ensuring safety of workers inside manufacturing units.
