Global Fracking Chemicals and Fluids Market – 2020 – ResearchAndMarkets.com

DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The "Fracking Chemicals and Fluids Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global fracking chemicals and fluids market is currently experiencing strong growth. Fracking, also known as hydraulic fracturing, is the process of injecting chemicals and fluids underground to create fissures and extract oil and natural gas. These fluids are commonly known as frac fluids or hydraulic-fracturing fluids and are composed of majorly of frac sand and water, with a small percentage of chemical additives. They are injected into the bedrock formation for creating new fractures in the rock and increasing the size, extent and connectivity of existing fractures. Different chemicals are used to perform various functions in hydraulic fracturing, depending on the required characteristics. Some of these functions include friction reducers, corrosion and scale inhibitors, gelling agents, surfactants, clay stabilizers, and biocides.

Fracking chemicals and fluids assist in carrying proppant solutions to the desired formation, improving gel strength, reducing friction and retaining the viscosity of the fluid at high temperatures. As hydraulic fracturing helps in reaching previously inaccessible oil and gas reserves, there is a rise in the demand for fracking chemicals and fluids across the globe. Moreover, the growing consumption of energy in emerging regions, such as Asia and Africa, is resulting in the escalating demand for natural gas and rising development in offshore activities, which in turn is driving the market growth. Apart from this, owing to the growing environmental concerns, several manufacturers in the industry are investing in research and development (R&D) activities to produce environment-friendly fluids and chemicals. Looking forward, the publisher expects the market to register a CAGR of 8.5% during 2020-2025.
