Corrosion Inhibitors Market Overview


The CAGR for the corrosion inhibitors industry is projected to be 4.2% by 2030 . The corrosion inhibitors market value is expected to be USD 7,619.9 million by then. Manufacturers of electrical parts use corrosion inhibitors because these special chemicals keep production conduits and/or completion systems from corroding.


There are many ways that corrosion inhibitors can enter these items and systems. They can either be regularly injected through a downhole injection hole or they can be squeezed into a matrix. These inhibitors will mix with other fluids. Many companies in a variety of industries use corrosion inhibitors in their daily operations. These industries include power, mining, oil and gas, petrochemicals, paper, and many companies that protect the environment.


January 2022


Emerald Performance Materials has put four chemical factories in Henry, Illinois, up for sale. Previously, the processing and manufacturing units were used to produce antioxidants, accelerators, and specialty chemicals utilized in tyre manufacture and other rubber and elastomer industry applications. Emerald's operations were officially halted in September of last year, following the company's acquisition by the New York-based private equity firm American Securities LLC. In addition, a 4,000-square-foot production facility is for sale. The plant generated aqueous solutions utilized as corrosion inhibitors, binding agents, chemical intermediates, processing aids, and dyes.


COVID-19 analysis


COVID-19 is a unique and new virus that has interesting properties. The fact that it can make some of those who get it very ill and even kill a few people makes most people want to avoid exposure to it. That’s why many people have been working remotely, practicing social distancing, and prefer to shop online (to avoid physical contact as much as possible!) Indeed, COVID-19 is sending the world hurtling toward the isolation that characterizes the digital world.


Governments realized that COVID-19 was a dangerous virus early on. That’s why they imposed lockdowns and quarantines immediately after the COVID-19 became more than just another global nuisance. These were temporary because they were not very effective. In any case, many companies in many industries around the world were negatively affected. They were forced to either halt production at least temporarily or dramatically scale back production. Many businesses were forced to close down permanently because of this.


The companies in the corrosion inhibitors industry were no exception. Many of these companies were forced to either halt production, at least temporarily or dramatically scale it back. This was because most of their customers were doing the same.


August 2022


The COVID-19 outbreak affected various sectors, especially the mining and energy sectors. However, a few companies remained steady in their growth in the corrosion inhibitors industry. For instance, PECOM, a company that develops solutions and services for the energy and mining industry, started up its new laboratory at its base in Tocancipá (Cundinamarca) to expand its chemical products in the Andean region. 


With an investment of USD 345,000, the brand-new laboratory has modern equipment such as Sparge Beaker and LPR that evaluates corrosion rates under dynamic conditions with CO2 gas, to develop products in the case of corrosion inhibitors; In addition, this equipment is complemented by linear polarization probes (LPR).


Competitive landscape


The global corrosion inhibitors industry is competitive and fragmented. What accounts for this is the fact that there are few barriers to entry. This is encouraging many new companies to enter the industry every year. Companies find that they have to invest heavily in research and development, merge with and acquire other companies, and enter into strategic partnerships with other successful companies to create a sustainable competitive advantage.


Cortec Corporation is a major American player in the global corrosion inhibitors industry. It has become an industry leader by creating a sustainable competitive advantage through intensive investments in research and development.

Market dynamics


Drivers


The water treatment industry has the greatest demand for corrosion inhibitors. In fact, it’s been dramatic growth in the water treatment industry that’s been driving immense demand (and hence growth) in the corrosion inhibitors industry. Sources of fresh and clean drinking water are becoming scarce around the world. This along with the fact that governments are becoming stricter with the ways in which industries can dispose of their wastewater is driving tremendous growth in the corrosion inhibitors industry.


Many water treatment plant managers find that municipal pipes don’t corrode as much if corrosion inhibitors are used to treat the insides of these pipes. Corrosion inhibitors can help many companies in the oil and gas industry reuse wastewater from other industries.


Opportunities


There are many opportunities emerging in the global corrosion inhibitors industry. One of these is the growing preference for industries around the world to use environmentally friendly corrosion inhibitors as opposed to more traditional ones. This is prompting many companies in the global corrosion inhibitors industry to try to do lots of research and development in the attempt to try to come up with a new generation of green corrosion inhibitors that have more innovative uses and applications and don’t harm the environment nearly as much.


Restraints


Corrosion inhibitors last for a long time. They also don’t perform well when subjected to high temperatures. These factors and more are expected to contribute to a gradual decline in demand for them.


Challenges


Perhaps the greatest challenge that companies in the corrosion inhibitors industry face lie in continuing to make corrosion inhibitors that can withstand extremely high temperatures better.


May 2022


Hexigone, with their Intelli-Ion AX1 product.Intelli-Ion AX1 is a chemically smart, sustainable corrosion inhibitor based on benzotriazole (BTA) and a smart-release ion-exchange reservoir. This patented technology keeps the BTA inert in the ion-exchange reservoir until corrosion is detected. At that time and location in the coating film, the BTA is released and becomes active. In this way, the corrosion inhibitor is released exactly where corrosion is occurring and can do its job without causing incompatibilities and disruption in the coating film.
