Global Proppants Market to Reach US$ 11.5 Billion by 2028, Spurred by Rising Requirement of Oil and Gas

May 01, 2019 | Chemical & Materials

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Proppants Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028”, the global proppants market reached a value of US$ 8.5 Billion in 2022. Proppants are solid materials that are utilized in hydraulic fracturing to keep fissures open. They provide a pathway for hydrocarbons to flow freely from the reservoir to the well and prevent fractures from closing. They are mostly made up of sand, frac sand, resin coated sand, man-made ceramic materials or resin coated ceramic materials. Proppants are found in various shapes and sizes which determine the final permeability through the fracture. These materials are integral to the process of fracturing, which enables easy extraction from permeable reservoirs, and thereby are extensively employed in the oil and gas industry.

Global Proppants Market Trends:

The ever-growing requirement of oil and natural gas across the globe is bolstering the demand for proppants. Crude oil and natural gas were earlier obtained using conventional extraction methods. However, significant depletion of these natural resources over the years has led to the development of unconventional extraction techniques including hydraulic fracturing, which is spurring the sales of proppants. Apart from this, manufacturers are constantly engaging in research and development (R&D) activities with an aim to develop lightweight variants which reduce proppant settling and require low viscosity fluids for transportation. In addition to this, multifunctional proppants are expected to detect hydraulic fracture geometry and slowly release downhole chemical additives while maintaining conductive hydraulic fractures. Another major factor contributing to the market growth is the advent of horizontal multistage fracturing technique. The market is expected to reach a value of US$ 11.5 Billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 5% during 2023-2028.
