According to Market Research Future (MRFR), the global corrosion inhibitors market had generated a valuation of USD 7,619.9 MN, in 2021, which would further get appreciated at a CAGR of 4.2% during the review period (2022 – 2027). Also, the increasing demand from the marine shipbuilding industry alongside, the energy, transport, automotive, and other industries, drives the growth of the market, substantially.

Also, the growing water treatment industry predominantly drives the market demand due to the water scarcity and stringent regulations against wastewater disposal in the industrial sector. Furthermore, the increased use of hydraulic fracturing in the OG industry has led to increasing the growth of the market, raising the demand for water treatment chemicals. 

On the other hand, the adoption of thermoplastics in flow pipelines due to their superior benefits is expected to inhibit the market growth, reducing the demand for corrosion inhibitors. Nevertheless, growing preferences for green corrosion inhibitors led by the stringent regulations against the use of inorganic inhibitors would create lucrative opportunities for the players operating in the global corrosion inhibitors market.

Global Corrosion Inhibitors Market – Regional Analysis

The Asia Pacific accounts for the largest region in the global corrosion inhibitors industry insights due to the demand in various applications such as power generation and metal processing industry. The region is witnessing an increasing demand for these materials, especially in India, China, Taiwan, and South Korea. In 2018, the APAC corrosion inhibitors market had accounted for 41.2% of the market share, valuing at USD 3,142.1 MN. The region would grow at a 5.3% CAGR during the review period. 

The oil and gas industry in the region is driving the regional market growth, majorly led by the increasing investments in OG production extraction activities to meet the rising demand for petroleum products, fuel, and energy. Additionally, the growth in chemical processing industries led by the increased demand for water treatment chemicals would provide impetus to the growth of the regional market.

North America is another lucrative market for corrosion inhibitors. The region is a substantially large production capacity of these materials. The region is expected to register around 3% CAGR during the review period. The US is the largest market in the region, generating about 80.6% of the total revenue in the market. This is attributed to the significant rise in shale gas extraction using hydraulic fracturing technology resulting in an increased need for water.

The corrosion inhibitors market in the European region is a briskly growing market. The growth is attributed to the increasing regulations against wastewater discharge leading to the adoption of reverse osmosis (RO) membranes other processes to enable plants to reuse and recycle water. Due to rising demand for these materials in various applications such as oil gas, shipbuilding, marine, energy, transport, automotive, and others, the region is projected to register around 2.7% CAGR during the review period (2022–2027).
