Increasing need of frac sand for extraction of petroleum fluids, rising usage of ceramic and resin coated proppants to enhance productivity of wells, advancements in proppants fracking technology, growing demand for energy, and perpetual requirement of oil and gas are the factors driving the global demand for proppants, as per the newly collated market research report by IndustryARC. According to the report, the global proppants market was valued at $8.1 billion in 2018 and is projected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.10% during the forecast period 2019-2025.

The report is titled “Proppants Market: By Product (Sand, Resin Coated, Ceramic); By Application (Shale Gas, Tight Oil, Coal Bed Methane, Others); & By Geography - Forecast (2019-2025).” It explains in detail the indispensable aspects of the market including market drivers, market value chain, restraints, growth indicators, market trends, challenges, future outlook, and market insights.

Proppants Market: Leading Segments

North America held 71% of the global proppants market  share in in 2018. Increasing material loading levels, presence of enormous shale gas reserves, growing number of aging fields, commercial extraction of unconventional gases, large number of oil extraction companies, new investments in proppants plants, introduction of longer laterals, and moderate recovery of oil prices are some of the key factors propelling the growth of the North America proppants market.

Proppants are classified into resin-coated, ceramic, and frac sand materials. Furthermore, proppants are classified based on their application into shale gas, tight gas, and coal bed methane. Frac sand it the most widely used category in the proppants market owing to its efficiency, low cost, easy availability, and broad applications. The frac sand segment is estimated to continue its dominance by growing at an outstanding CAGR of 54% through 2025.

Proppants Market Disruptive Trends
