Global Oil Storage Market: Snapshot

Key oil product storage types include those meant for crude oil, gasoline, aviation fuel, as well as middle distillates such as diesel, fuel oil, marine bunker fuels, naphtha, kerosene, gas oil, and petrol. Oil storage provides a greater level of constancy in costs of these products through the removal of fluctuations in the short term supply market for crude and all its derivatives. The Middle East is expected to continue being a primary target region for manufacturers of oil product storage units, due to the continued lead taken by the region in the production of crude.

Leakage of oil products is one of the leading causes of product wastage and traders and manufacturers are aware of the investments that are required into developing superior alternatives in storage that can help avoid these losses. This also includes diverting manual labor and manufacturing capabilities towards expanding the manufacture of these storage units. Carbon steel and stainless steel are the two key materials currently being used to manufacture oil storage units. Carbon steel has been a staple in the market primarily due to its lower cost, but provides several disadvantages that stainless steel can mitigate. It is very likely for more players to shift towards stainless steel storage units over the coming years.

Global Oil Storage Market: Overview

Oil storage products are mainly comprised of gasoline, crude oil, aviation fuel, and middle distillates such as fuel oil, diesel, naphtha, marine bunker fuels, kerosene, petrol, and gas oil. Oil storage brings about stability in pricing by eliminating short term supply fluctuations of crude and its derivatives. On account of different stringent norms to thwart leakage, vendors of storage equipment have invested heavily in manpower and in building steel tanks. There are two types of material used in this process, namely, carbon steel and stainless steel. Although carbon steel is low priced, stainless steel will likely see significant demand in locations of high air salinity and open storage facilities. Further, the chromium content enhances resilience against strong chemicals, resulting in its higher demand in the global market. 

Global Oil Storage Market: Key Trends 

With the global glut in oil on account of the Middle East countries showing little signs of reducing production and the U.S. production of shale in massive quantities, supply has outpaced demand. This has necessitated the effective storage thereby resulting in a major growth in the global market for oil storage. Suppliers worldwide have augmented their inventories and infrastructure to store massive quantities of crude oil. Another factor fuelling an uptick in demand is the governments’ endeavors to increase oil reserves to avert an economic crisis. 

A noticeable trend in the market is the stockpiling initiatives undertaken by nations such as the U.S., China, and India to cushion the price volatility and achieve consistent supply to the end-use sector. 

Global Oil Storage Market: Market Potential 

With the global oil supply not showing much signs of letting up, the future for the global oil storage market looks promising. These tanks are used mainly for gasoline, aviation fuel, crude oil, and middle distillates. Storage demand for crude oil is predicted to cross 1 billion cubic meters by 2025. However, capacity expansions and high demand for diesels and fuels for power and transportation sectors are expected to up demand for gasoline, aviation fuel, and other petrochemical derivatives in the next couple of years. 

A major concern, however, is the increasing inventory due to lessened consumption. This results in economic losses to suppliers. Besides, strict rules pertaining to stockpiling of oil in above and below-ground tank installations is another factor hobbling the market. Control of Pollution (England) Regulations 2001 and the Water Environment (Scotland) Regulations 2006 are some of the primary legislations that industry participants in Western Europe need to comply with. 

Global Oil Storage Market: Regional Outlook 

From a geographical perspective, the Middle East spearheads the global oil storage market on account of the increasing oil production and rising refinery throughput. Robust requirement for distillates, petroleum, and fuel in different industrial and commercial segments has significantly upped tank demand in the region. Nations such as Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and the UAE are at the forefront of driving growth in the region. Crude oil storage demand in Saudi Arabia is anticipated to reach 67.4 million cubic meters by 2025. 

North America too contributes significantly to oil stockpiling demand. Asia Pacific oil storage market is also predicted to see a turnaround in petrochemical demand in the years ahead.
