Calcium Bromide: Introduction
Calcium bromide is a white powder, odourless in nature, and is formed from calcium salt of hydrobromic acid, which a volatile acid used to formulate other industrial compounds. Calcium bromide (molecular formula: CaBr2), having a density of 14.2 lbs/gal, is regarded as clear brine fluid. Calcium Bromide is utilized with calcium chloride in oil & gas completion & drilling operations to make the drill cuttings brine free. Calcium bromide also finds application as an oxidizer for controlling mercury emissions in the power industry. Further, calcium bromide also finds applications in neuroses medication, hydraulic fluids in automotive suspension, brominated flame retardants, in photography for making dry plates and light-sensitive papers, and as mercury emission controls.
Calcium Bromide: Market Dynamics
Calcium bromide market demand is heavily influenced by its application in the oil & gas industry. Stabilizing crude oil prices have resulted in an influx of investments in the oil & gas industry, driving drilling and production activities along with work-over operations. Clear brine fluids such as calcium bromide are used to minimize the damage to oil & gas reservoirs and to control formation pressure.
This has been creating noteworthy demand for calcium bromide market. Moreover, calcium bromide also find usage for restraining mercury emission at coal fired power plants. Elemental mercury which is released when the coal is burnt is difficult to capture at combustion temperatures. Hence, bromine based compounds such as calcium bromide are used to oxidize the elemental mercury into flue gas, which can be captured by current abetment equipment.
Formulation of strict government regulations encouraging the usage of halogenated flame retardants in EU countries, the U.S. and Canada, is expected to decrease the consumption of calcium bromide in flame retardants in these regions. However, Asian markets such as India and China, still witness high usage of brominated flame retardants owing to lenient regulations, which is anticipated to drive the demand of calcium bromide in these countries.
Calcium bromide is gaining significance in the oil & gas drilling industry as a better alternative to conventional drilling fluids. Increasing exploration & production ofdeep sea reserves, growing instances of horizontal drilling due to complexities in reservoirs, constant efforts from various developing nations to obtain energy security, are some of the factors contributing towards the growth of oil & gas industry, which in turn is driving the demand of calcium bromide. Booming shale gas production in the U.S. and coal bed methane gas production in China, India and Australia are anticipated to significantly ramp up oil & gas drilling activities in the coming years. Hence, the market vendors in the calcium bromide market are expected to achieve significant revenue base by targeting oil & gas producers involved in the development of these unconventional reservoirs.
Calcium Bromide: Regional Market Outlook
Growing drilling activities across Egypt, China, Gulf of Mexico, U.S. and Russia, on account of increasing energy demand is a key driving factor for global calcium bromide market. North America, which accounts for almost 20% of the global crude oil production, is anticipated to hold a dominant share in the calcium bromide market. Middle East & Africa region, on the back of continuing oil & gas drilling activity in the Gulf countries & West African nations, is anticipated to follow North America in terms of global demand for calcium bromide. European countries such as Russia, Spain, France and Italy are projected to grow at a moderate rate only during the forecast period, mostly on the back of demand from the oil & gas and automotive industries in the region.
