Key Market Insights 

Stringent environment regulations, driving the market growth

An oil spill is the accidental release of a liquid petroleum hydrocarbon into the marine ecosystem, polluting the overall ecological balance of the environment. Oil spill control measures act to decrease and limit oil spills, as well as limit their spreading in the environment. Oil spill management is the utilization of technologies to prevent oil spills. It includes clean-up strategies post spilling to reduce the leakage, and implementing techniques to minimize waste and the devastating ecological effect of the spilled oil. Exploration and production, refining and marketing, and chemicals are the main industries that require oil spill management. 

Energy and fuel like oil are the main fuels for the continuous running of economic development. The growing trade of oil among countries through sea-tankers-ferries has mandated the need for oil spill management technologies and methods. Growth in oil & gas transportation through tankers has a positive impact on the global oil spill management market. Major industry players such as SkimOIL Inc., Ecolab Inc. are engaged in investing a huge amount in R&D.

Overall, the global oil spill management market was US$ 132.6 Bn in 2018 and expected to reach US$ 174.5 Bn by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 3.1% from 2019 to 2027. 

Market Snapshot

Technology Type Segment Analysis

Pre-oil spill segment dominating the market

Based on technology, the market is divided into the pre-oil spill and post-oil-spill technologies used for oil spill management. Among the two, pre-oil spill management emerged as the major technology segment in 2018. In the pre-oil spill technology, double hull technology accounted for over 60% of the global pre-oil spill management market in 2018. In the post-oil spill management, mechanical containment and recovery was the largest response technique in 2018. The mechanical method uses booms, sorbents, and skimmers for cleaning up an oil spill. With the growing regulation on preventing oil spill with heavy fines, the oil tanker companies largely adopted preventive technologies such as pipeline leak detection in their tanker. This has helped the pre-oil spill technology market to grow in 2018.
