Industry & Technology Overview

The market was estimated to be at $6,100.0 million in 2021, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 7.8% and reach $12,927.6 mill

Global Drilling Fluids Industry Overview

The global drilling fluids market was estimated to be at $6,100.0 million in 2021, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 7.8% and reach $12,927.6 million by 2031. The growth in the global drilling fluids market is expected to be driven by increasing onshore and offshore drilling activities due to the rise in energy demand.

Market Lifecycle Stage

Drilling fluids are a large and growing industry. Increased research and development activities are underway to develop more efficient drilling fluid while reducing the cost. Additionally, a large number of wells are projected to be drilled in the next few years.

Impact

Increased demand for energy and an increase in drilling processes for oil exploration and production are some of the key driving factors for the drilling fluids market. The shift toward the usage of water-based drilling fluids is more prominent in the oil and gas industry owing to its environment friendly and cost-effective nature. The U.S. has the largest industry for drilling fluids as the oil and gas companies are using these fluids for smooth and efficient well drilling.

Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 has had a significant global impact on the supply chain of the drilling fluids market. Moreover, the oil and gas industry witnessed a substantial decline in demand due to the several lockdowns and restrictions, which caused in decreased demand for drilling fluids.

Market Segmentation:

Drilling Fluids Market

Segmentation 1: by Application
•    Onshore
•    Offshore

The global drilling fluids market in the application segment is expected to be dominated by onshore applications. This is due to increased oil and gas exploration activities at onshore oil fields and the advantage of the availability of customized drilling fluids according to the formation location.

Segmentation 2: by Product Type
•    Water-Based Drilling Fluids
•    Oil-Based Drilling Fluids
•    Synthetic-Based Drilling Fluids
•    Others

The global drilling fluids market is dominated by water-based drilling fluids. This is due to its cost-effectiveness and lower environmental impact. Moreover, growing concern about the toxicity of other drilling fluids is expected to create demand for water-based drilling fluids.

Segmentation 3: by Region
•    North America - U.S., Canada, and Mexico
•    Europe - Norway, Turkey, Russia, and Rest-of-Europe
•    China
•    U.K.
•    Asia-Pacific and Japan - India, Indonesia, Australia, and Rest-of-Asia-Pacific and Japan
•    South America - Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Rest-of-South America
•    Middle East and Africa - Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, U.A.E., and Rest-of-Middle East and Africa

North America is expected to be the largest market for drilling fluids. This is mainly because growing oil and gas production with substantial oil field development, particularly in the U.S., is projected to trigger the demand in the region.

Recent Developments in Global Drilling Fluids Market

•   In May 2019, Baker Hughes Company introduced Delta-Teq low-pressure-impact drilling fluid, a non-aqueous drilling fluid that allows operators working in slender pressure windows to meet their drilling objectives by significantly reducing the threats associated with this activity.

Demand – Drivers and Limitations

Following are the demand drivers for the drilling fluids market:

•    Increasing Onshore and Offshore Drilling Activities
•    Increasing Focus on Shale Gas

The market is expected to face some limitations too due to the following challenges:

•    Volatility in Prices of Crude Oil to Impact the Drilling Fluids Consumption
•    Rise in Cost of Deepwater and Ultra-Deepwater Drilling
•    Impact of Drilling Fluids on the Environment

Analyst Thoughts

According to Shivam Priyadarshi, Principal Analyst, BIS Research, "The drilling fluids are expected to be the best option for carrying out a smooth well drilling. With the increasing government support to increase oil production, the growth of the drilling fluid industry is expected to be exponential."

Industry & Technology Overview

Global Drilling Fluids Industry Overview

The global drilling fluids market was estimated to be at $6,100.0 million in 2021, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 7.8% and reach $12,927.6 million by 2031. The growth in the global drilling fluids market is expected to be driven by increasing onshore and offshore drilling activities due to the rise in energy demand.

Market Lifecycle Stage

Drilling fluids are a large and growing industry. Increased research and development activities are underway to develop more efficient drilling fluid while reducing the cost. Additionally, a large number of wells are projected to be drilled in the next few years.

Impact

Increased demand for energy and an increase in drilling processes for oil exploration and production are some of the key driving factors for the drilling fluids market. The shift toward the usage of water-based drilling fluids is more prominent in the oil and gas industry owing to its environment friendly and cost-effective nature. The U.S. has the largest industry for drilling fluids as the oil and gas companies are using these fluids for smooth and efficient well drilling.

Impact of COVID-19

COVID-19 has had a significant global impact on the supply chain of the drilling fluids market. Moreover, the oil and gas industry witnessed a substantial decline in demand due to the several lockdowns and restrictions, which caused in decreased demand for drilling fluids.

Market Segmentation:

Drilling Fluids Market

Segmentation 1: by Application
•    Onshore
•    Offshore

The global drilling fluids market in the application segment is expected to be dominated by onshore applications. This is due to increased oil and gas exploration activities at onshore oil fields and the advantage of the availability of customized drilling fluids according to the formation location.

Segmentation 2: by Product Type
•    Water-Based Drilling Fluids
•    Oil-Based Drilling Fluids
•    Synthetic-Based Drilling Fluids
•    Others

The global drilling fluids market is dominated by water-based drilling fluids. This is due to its cost-effectiveness and lower environmental impact. Moreover, growing concern about the toxicity of other drilling fluids is expected to create demand for water-based drilling fluids.

Segmentation 3: by Region
•    North America - U.S., Canada, and Mexico
•    Europe - Norway, Turkey, Russia, and Rest-of-Europe
•    China
•    U.K.
•    Asia-Pacific and Japan - India, Indonesia, Australia, and Rest-of-Asia-Pacific and Japan
•    South America - Brazil, Venezuela, Colombia, Rest-of-South America
•    Middle East and Africa - Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, U.A.E., and Rest-of-Middle East and Africa

North America is expected to be the largest market for drilling fluids. This is mainly because growing oil and gas production with substantial oil field development, particularly in the U.S., is projected to trigger the demand in the region.

Recent Developments in Global Drilling Fluids Market

•   In May 2019, Baker Hughes Company introduced Delta-Teq low-pressure-impact drilling fluid, a non-aqueous drilling fluid that allows operators working in slender pressure windows to meet their drilling objectives by significantly reducing the threats associated with this activity.

Demand – Drivers and Limitations

Following are the demand drivers for the drilling fluids market:

•    Increasing Onshore and Offshore Drilling Activities
•    Increasing Focus on Shale Gas

The market is expected to face some limitations too due to the following challenges:

•    Volatility in Prices of Crude Oil to Impact the Drilling Fluids Consumption
•    Rise in Cost of Deepwater and Ultra-Deepwater Drilling
•    Impact of Drilling Fluids on the Environment

Analyst Thoughts

According to Shivam Priyadarshi, Principal Analyst, BIS Research, "The drilling fluids are expected to be the best option for carrying out a smooth well drilling. With the increasing government support to increase oil production, the growth of the drilling fluid industry is expected to be exponential."
