Key Market Trends Fueling Growth

The global produced water treatment market is poised for growth due to the increasing production of oil and gas from unconventional sources. In the US and China, shale gas will be the primary contributor to natural gas production, accounting for over half of the total production in both countries by 2040. This will result in a significant increase in the demand for produced water treatment systems to manage the enormous amounts of water used in the extraction process.

According to the US Energy Information Administration (EIA), global tight oil production is projected to more than double between 2015 and 2040, with the US accounting for the largest share. Other major contributors to global tight oil production include Russia, Canada, and Argentina. The EIA also expects natural gas production from unconventional sources to increase in these countries, leading to further demand for produced water treatment systems. 

The Produced Water Treatment market is experiencing significant growth due to the increasing demand for oil and gas production. Urbanization and the need for energy have driven this trend. The process involves removing contaminants from produced water, which is a byproduct of oil and gas extraction. This water can contain heavy metals, salts, and other impurities. Companies are investing in advanced technologies such as reverse osmosis, ultrafiltration, and electrodialysis to improve treatment efficiency.

Semi-membrane technologies and chemical treatments are also used. The focus is on producing clean water for reuse in operations and reducing waste. Producers are looking for cost-effective and sustainable solutions to meet regulatory requirements and minimize environmental impact. The market is expected to continue growing as the energy sector expands.

Market Challenges

•         The global energy landscape is undergoing a significant transformation, with renewable energy sources gaining prominence over traditional fossil fuels. This shift is particularly noticeable in Europe, where the EU aims to generate a 35% share of power from renewables by 2030. Stringent emission norms, such as Euro-VI, have reduced demand for oil and gas in the region, leading to a decline in the upstream industry. Consequently, the produced water treatment market will primarily serve the needs of developing and underdeveloped economies during the forecast period.

•         The Produced Water Treatment market faces several challenges in ensuring effective and efficient water management in various industries. These include the presence of complex contaminants, high volumes of water, and stringent regulatory requirements. Regulations such as the ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION AGENCY (EPA) and the Oil and Gas Industry's ENVIRONMENTAL AND SOCIAL INITIATIVE (OneFuture) require strict compliance with water quality standards.

•         The use of advanced technologies like reverse osmosis, ion exchange, and ultraviolet disinfection can help address these challenges. However, the high cost of these technologies and the need for ongoing maintenance remain significant hurdles. The industry also faces the challenge of managing large volumes of produced water, particularly in unconventional oil and gas production. Overall, the Produced Water Treatment market requires innovative solutions to address these challenges and ensure sustainable water management practices.

    1.1 Onshore-  The onshore segment, a significant contributor to global oil and gas production, will witness moderate growth in the produced water treatment market. The US shale gas industry, driven by the need for large water volumes for hydraulic fracturing, is a major market driver. With crude oil prices recovering and projected to remain around USD94 per barrel, the market is expected to expand due to increased global demand for liquid fuels and natural gas. This trend will lead to the reactivation of abandoned onshore shale gas blocks in the US, resulting in increased production and the subsequent use of treated produced water.
