Frac Sand, Resin Coated Sand & Ceramic for Hydraulic Fracturing (Fracing) in Unconventional Oil & Gas

Report Details
Continual expansion of unconventional oil and gas development seen over the next decade – most notably in the US, but also around the globe – will necessitate steadily increasing proppant sales throughout the next ten years. In the US, proppant sales are primarily driven by the shale (tight) oil industry, since the natural gas price has decoupled from the crude oil price, making it more economical to develop shale (tight) oil. However, elsewhere in the world, proppant sales are underpinned by shale gas development as nations seek to exploit their unconventional gas resources for export purposes or for the sake of domestic energy security.

While most of the proppant spending will take place in the Americas, and in the United States in particular, annual growth rates for other nations and regions are more aggressive, as the unconventional oil and gas boon spreads across the glove over the next 10 years. Of particular note are the proppants markets in Argentina, throughout the Americas, and in China; these nations and regions have extensive unconventional oil and gas reserves and the global trend toward natural gas as the dominant feedstock will ensure significant political and fiscal capital is spent developing them. Strong global oil prices and, in the case of markets outside North America, gas prices, further justifies such development and spending.

Visiongain calculates that the global market for proppants will reach $8.85bn in 2014.
