Drilling Fluids & Chemicals Market in the US - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for drilling fluids and chemicals will rise 11% per year through 2021. Unconventional drilling will grow more rapidly than conventional drilling, and the portion of conventional wells drilled will shrink further. Due to high oil drilling prices, formations such as the Bakken and Eagle will fall from favor to investors, while plays in Oklahoma and the Permian Basin will grow. Increasingly, technological advancements will allow water-based fluids to bu used in challenging drilling conditions where synthetic- or oil-based fluids have historically been used.

This study offers historical data and forecasts for 2021 by by product (drilling fluids: water-based, oil-based, and synthetic-based; drilling fluid additives: bentonite, lost circulation materials, shale inhibitors, barite, polymer viscosifiers) and location (Texas, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania & Ohio, Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana, New Mexico, North Dakota, Colorado). The study also evaluates company market share and offers analysis on industry players including Baker Hughes, Canadian Energy Services, Halliburton, National Oilwell Varco, Newpark Resources, and Schlumberger.
