Global spacer fluid market size was valued at $197.1million in 2020, and is projected to reach $323.1million by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2021 to 2030. The major factors driving the growth of the global oil well spacer fluids market are the increasing investments in the exploration & production of oil and gas as well assignificant growth of the oil & gas industry in developing countries. Moreover, technological advancements in well cementing are also expected to contribute to the growth of the spacer fluids market trends.

Spacer fluids are used to separate drilling fluids and cementing slurries by preparing both pipe and formation for cementing operations.  Spacer comprises water (as base fluid), heavy weight additive and spacer blend package (containsrheological modifiers). The spacer fluid system includes a viscosifier, wetting agent, surfactant package, and carrier fluid, typically water. The surfactant package’s main purpose is to change the formation surface from oily to moist, hence increasing cement bonding.

Impact of COVID-19 on the global spacer fluid market

  • Some of the major economies suffering from the COVID-19 crisis include Germany, France, Italy, Spain, the UK, Norway, and others. Many industries have been shut down, due to lack of raw material availability and disruptions in the supply chain, owing to the virus outbreak. The worldwide lockdown has suspended the onshore and offshore drilling activities, which results in declining the demand for spacer fluid.
  •  Manufacture of oil and gas and other products across the globe came to a halt due to the unavailability of raw materials, shortage of labor, and other factors. This is expected to hamper the spacer fluid market opportunities.
  • Gaps in demand-supply, price volatility, and change in government policy will affect the growth of various end-use industries. In terms of its immediate and long-term effect on industry and consumers, the COVID-19 pandemic has outpaced any headwind ever encountered. The world economy of spacer fluid industries has been experiencing a rapid slowdown, due to the constraints of the COVID-19 pandemic on economic activity.
  •  Owing to COVID-19, the market witnessed significant dip due to closure of several rigs, however, the market is expected to witness strong growth in the next couple of years as situation continues to ease down in the North America and Asia-Pacific region.
