Drag reducing agents or polymers are the chemical additives, which are used to reduce the frictional pressure or turbulence in a pipeline. Basically, these are high molecular weight polymers that act as buffers along the walls of the pipe and thus reduce energy loss and increase liquid flow. These agents generally decrease turbulence by increasing pumping activity under low pressure by saving both cost and energy. It is useful in oil & gas industry, shipbuilding, fire fighting, healthcare, and chemical transportation.
Rising demand for crude oil owing to increasing end-use industries such as petrochemicals, energy generation, and oil & gas has driven the drag reducing agent market. Drag reducing agent is used to improve crude oil productivity and flow capacity has increased its demand in crude oil extracting, transportation and refining. Growth in hydraulics fracturing is likely to boost the drag reducing agent demand. However, Environmental concerns and fluctuating crude oil prices are expected to hinder the market growth. Nevertheless, favorable policies by oil-producing countries regarding the use of bio-based drag reducers are presumed to foster the market growth.
