Proppants are solid material, typically sand, man-made ceramic materials, or treated sand used for keeping an induced hydraulic fracture open, during the fracturing treatment. Hydraulic fracturing is a process that involves injecting sand, water, and chemicals into the well under a highly controlled condition to fracture solid rocks and release trapped gas deposits. As proppants assist in keeping the fissures open in shale rock, they are increasing being used in hydraulic fracturing operations, thereby facilitating the demand in the market.

Rising introduction of multi-stage fracturing techniques has resulted in increasing number of fracturing stages per well, which is in turn, increasing the consumption of proppants. In addition, growing number of shale gas and crude oil exploration activities across the U.S. and Canada is projected to augment the sales in the North and Central America proppant market.

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading North and Central America Proppant Market Growth?

With surging demand for fossil fuel products such as gasoline, natural gas, diesel, and others worldwide, governments in several countries are emphasizing on increasing the production of crude oil and natural gas. For instance, according to the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the production of natural gas and crude oil has increased 9.8% and 12.7% respectively in 2019 in comparison to 2018.

This is encouraging oil & gas industry players of increasing hydraulic fracturing activities for increasing the production of natural gas and shale gas, which is in turn, creating lucrative growth opportunities in the market.

Also, increasing oil & gas exploration activities and the discovery of new fossil fuel reserves are driving the growth in the market. For instance, in 2019, the U.S. Government announced the discovering new fossil fuel reserves in New Mexico, North Dakota, Texas, and with barrels capacity of 1.1 billion, 0.7 billion, and 3.5 billion, respectively in 2019. As proppants are extensively used in oil & gas wells, such developments are estimated to bolster the sale of proppants in the market.

What are the Challenges Faced by the North and Central America Proppant Market?

Although hydraulic fracturing activities are not carbon-intensive processes, they still poses a significant threat to the environment causing small earthquakes and methane leaks during the process. It also causes a hazardous impact on the soil quality and contaminates the groundwater reserves due to the use of large amounts of toxic chemicals in the process.

Thus, with rising concerns pertaining to environmental sustainability, governments in the region are increasingly implementing numerous stringent regulations for declining hydraulic fracturing activities, which is in turn, hampering the growth in the North and Central America Proppant market.

Why is the U.S. Emerging as an Opportunistic Proppant Market in North and Central America?

As per FMI, the U.S. is projected to continue dominating the North and Central America proppant market between 2022 and 2032.

The U.S. Government is extensively focusing on implementing numerous subsidies and tax exemptions to promote and increase the production of fossil fuel the country. According to the Environmental and Energy Study Institute, every year, the U.S. provides nearly US$ 20 Bn worth of direct subsidies to the fossil fuel industry, with 80% allocated to crude oil and natural gas, for encouraging domestic energy production. These initiatives are expected to fuel the demand for proppants in the U.S. 

Also, leading players in the market are increasingly aiming to expand their production capacity to meet the surging demand for proppant. For instance, in 2019, the U.S. Silica, a global industrial minerals and logistics company, announced acquiring a former ceramic proppant manufacturing facility in Georgia, U.S., to increase the production of high-end products such as proppant. A multiplicity of such developments are forecast to accelerate the growth in the U.S. market.
