Onshore Drilling Fluids Market : Global Industry Analysis 2015-2019 and Opportunity Assessment 2020-2030

Market Overview

Global Onshore Drilling Fluids Market: Market Introduction

The production of oil and natural gas has witnessed steady growth in the recent years. In the global oil & gas industry, the hydraulic fracturing activities for the production of shale oil & gas is increasing at a significant rate. Shale gas revolution expected to increase the demand for oilfield drilling fluids and competition chemicals. There are three types of drilling fluids – oil based fluids, synthetic based fluids, and water based fluids. Among the total drilling fluids, around 70% demand generated from the onshore projects.

Oil-based mud is alternative name of onshore drilling fluids, is help to reduce overall cost of operation and environmental impact. Primary functions of onshore drilling fluids are – to reduce mud losses, maximize clay inhibition, achieve rate of penetration (ROP), minimize pore-pressure, improving cement jobs, and among others. The key additives of onshore drilling fluids include dispersants, rheology modifier, thinners, fluid loss control additives, wetting agents, protective chemicals, shale stabilizers, surfactants, and among others. The usage of onshore drilling fluids varies on the basis of basins and well types of operation. 

Global Onshore Drilling Fluids Market: Market Dynamics

The growing production of oil and natural gas is expected to boost the oil exploration, production & transportation activities, which in turn will drive the onshore drilling fluids market in the coming years. Along with this, rising awareness regarding safe operation of oilfield equipment is expected to support the demand for onshore drilling fluids market.

At a globe level, steady growth is anticipated in oil industries, owing to the demand for gasoline and fuels in the market. These products show signs of remarkable growth during the forecast period. Further, the prominent players involved in the oil and gas market are focusing on merger and acquisition activities with other players in the market to strengthen their global footprint in the market. Thus, increased production capacities expected to drive the global onshore drilling fluids market. However, the fluctuation in the crude oil or end-product prices is anticipated to hamper the global onshore drilling fluids market. 

Global Onshore Drilling Fluids Market: Regional Outlook
