The Largest Consumers of Crude Oil in the World

The world runs on money! Or oil! Crude oil to be more specific. It is unnecessary to explain the importance of crude oil in the world. We just have to look at the news, and how countries with oil resources have become rich. The Middle East is the biggest example of this statement. The statement, “the world runs on oil” not only talks about the political influence of oil-rich economies but also in its literal sense. It is because of crude oil that most of the vehicles are running on the road and the manufacturing units all across the world are still functional. The global crude oil consumption as of 2017 stood at 3.72 trillion metric tonnes. (SpendEdge – Procurement Market Intelligence Report) Although the world is moving towards clean energy, oil is still a significant part of the global economy.

Largest consumers of crude oil

APAC region

High economic growth in countries such as China, India, Singapore, and Indonesia has driven consumption and made APAC the leading market for crude oil in terms of consumption. Gasoline, kerosene, diesel fuel, and paraffin wax are amongst the major crude oil products consumed in this region. Such fuels are powering various industrial and domestic applications including automobile, chemical manufacturing, and road construction. In India, LPG consumption is very high, as it is the primary source of energy for daily cooking needs. Over the last decade, the production of natural gas in China has been shooting up; thus, driving the manufacturing of chemicals as it’s a clean fuel source. As a result, the overall demand for crude oil is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3%–4% over the forecast period

North America

In terms of consumption, the US is the largest market for crude oil, not only in North America but also globally. The country accounts for more than 20% of the global crude oil consumption. It is no wonder that the US has either issues or diplomatic relations with many countries in the Middle East. A high number of per capita vehicle ownership and energy consumption are the significant factors driving the consumption in this market. Additionally, the discovery of shale oil in the region has resulted in an increase in domestic production volumes of crude oil, which, in turn, has led to a decline in both price and imports of crude oil.

However, the growth of the natural gas market in the region, which can be attributed to the discovery of shale gas in the region, has resulted in several chemical suppliers using natural gas as fuel and feedstock to produce chemicals such as olefins and ethylene. These factors are expected to lead to a minimal growth in demand for crude oil in the region


Europe ranks third in terms of global crude oil consumption. The strong chemical and automotive market in France, Germany, and Russia are driving the consumption in this region. The region is also the fastest growing in terms of green energy as countries such as Sweden and Denmark are focusing on clean energy. Europe is also the leading market for electric cars (sales per capita) worldwide. Moreover, governments across the region have passed legislation to reduce the consumption of crude oil by employing stringent limitations on emissions of pollutants from the use of crude oil products. Consequently, the overall market for crude oil is expected to decline over the years.


MEA is one of the largest production hubs for crude oil. The region uses crude oil to produce chemicals such as EDC, VCM, ethylene, benzene, toluene, and olefins. Apart from the Middle East, high economic growth in African countries, such as Nigeria, is leading to the higher consumption of crude oil-based fuels. The only concern for crude oil market in this region is the surrounding political instability, civil war, and financial downturn. Such events can have a negative effect on both the demand and supply of crude oil, which will hamper the market growth.

South America

Venezuela is the country with largest oil reserve in the world, with an estimated proven oil reserve of over 250 billion barrels. In terms of consumption, it ranks third followed by Brazil and Argentina. Majority of the crude oil is used in the production of chemicals such as EDC, olefins, gasoline, diesel, and kerosene, which are then used in several end-user segments. The region, however, experiences a decline in crude oil demand due to the preference for biofuels such as ethanol.

Top Trends Shaping the Drilling Fluids Market Landscape

The increase in global energy demands has given rise to oil and natural gas exploration activities in recent times. An essential component in such kind of oil and natural gas exploration is the need for drilling fluids. Drilling fluids are critical in drilling activities to provide hydrostatic pressure to prevent formation fluids from entering into the wellbore, carry out drill cuttings, and keep the drill bit cool. Additionally, drilling fluids enable the collection of data about rock formations. The recent procurement market intelligence report from SpendEdge attributes the growth of the global drilling fluid market to the recovery of oil and gas prices. Major oil and gas producers, such as OPEC nations and Russia, implemented production cuts to stabilize the volatility in pricing, which had affected the growth of the industry in general, post the fall in oil prices in 2014.

Request Free SampleWhat’s trending in the global drilling fluids market?

Increasing drilling activities in challenging environments

As drilling for oil and gas is growing in challenging environments such as shale reserves and deepwater, an increase in demand can be observed for drilling fluid solutions that can deliver optimal drilling performance in such situations. For instance, in the case of directional drilling, fluids with improved lubricity is required in order to combat high friction. The demand for drilling fluids capable of withstanding high temperatures found in deeper wells is well on rise causing suppliers to invest heavily in R&D activity.

Consolidation among oilfield services company

The dip in the oil prices in early 2014 caused many oil and gas companies to be involved in M&A activities. It not only helped their case for survival but also helping them complement and complete their portfolios of oilfield services. For instance, the acquisition of Baker Hughes by GE enabled the latter to add oilfield services to its existing oil and gas portfolio. Such M&A deals allow the companies to procure different services from a single supplier, reducing their management complexities.

Rise in exploration activities of shale oil and gas reserves

The North Dakota oil boom has motivated numerous countries to explore the commercial viability of their shale reserves. For instance, in August 2017, a regional player was granted the rights for exploration and development of a shale gas block in China’s Guizhou province. Apart from that, many countries such as Norway, Argentina, UK, and South Africa are already planning or executing shale gas exploration. The increase in shale gas exploration activities is driving the demand for special drilling fluids that can enable operations in these challenging formations.

Demand for environment-friendly drilling fluids

The contents of drilling fluids contain petroleum products and heavy metals that can harm the environment in case of spillage. Mining companies and gas drillers can be severely penalized by regulatory bodies in case there is a discharge of such harmful substances from their operations into their surroundings. As a result, the industry is demanding drilling fluids that have minimal environmental effects. For example, Schlumberger has developed the ENVIROTHERM NT drilling fluid system in response to demand for a chromium-free drilling fluid system.

Recovery of oilfield services

Along with the recovery in oil prices after its steep fall in 2014, the spend on upstream activities has gradually increased thereby increasing the demand for oilfield services. Consequently, the service costs for oilfield activities have been continuously on the rise. This increase is evident in locations with low production costs as opposed to locations with high production costs. Such increase can have a substantial effect on profit margins of oil and gas producers as drilling fluids account for 4%-16% of the total drilling costs.

Top Challenges in the Pharmaceutical Raw Materials Market

Threat from Counterfeit Products

Falsified medicines or counterfeit drug products can easily enter the pharma supply chain across the world. Counterfeit drugs, usually contain low-quality APIs, wrong ingredient, or even the incorrect dosages. Such counterfeit products are then fraudulently mislabeled without compliance with intellectual property rights and can cause side-effects and other complexities when consumed. Pharmaceutical raw materials manufacturers will be negatively affected by such acts. As a result, medicine surveillance services and fake -identification technologies such as mass spectrometry (MS), infra-red (FTIR) spectroscopy, nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy, Raman spectroscopy, and gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) are gaining prominence.

Increase in Trade Taxes

Manufacturing hubs of the final drug products are located in the primary markets such as the US and Europe. However, these companies procure pharmaceutical raw materials from emerging countries like Brazil, China, India, and Israel. The problem arises when drug manufacturers have to incur additional expenses in the form of trade taxes and customs expenses. To promote “Made in America” movement, the Trump administration has slapped a double-digit tariff for companies outsourcing drug manufacturing activities. Such regulations will discourage drug manufacturers to obtain pharmaceutical raw materials at a lower cost.

Increase in Regulatory Delays

Drugs and medicines being a sensitive matter regarding public health, are heavily regulated by governments and medical associations. Pharmaceutical raw materials suppliers, therefore, must obtain approval from regulatory bodies such as FDA and EMA to bring the final products to the market. Delays in the approval process can slow down the time-to-market, and risk expiry of patent validity along with other operational issues. Such delays severely affect the drug manufacturers profitability, thereby hindering the overall growth of the market.
