'Drilling Fluids (Drilling Mud) Market & Completion Fluids Market: by Types (Water-Based Systems, Oil-Based Systems, Synthetic-Based Systems, Other Based Systems), Application Areas (Onshore and Offshore) & Geography - Forecast to 2018'

Drilling fluids and completion fluids are essential tools for conducting any drilling and exploration activities. They are used to avoid friction, provide lubrication, cool the wellbore, and transport rock cuttings to the surface. Every drilling activity requires drilling and completion fluids and they are used extensively across the globe. Drilling and completion fluids use different types of base fluids such as water-based systems, oil-based systems, synthetic-based systems, and other based systems. The use of drilling fluids and completion fluids base depends on the cost of the fluid, the desired performance, and environmental impact. The drilling and completion fluids market is directly dependant on drilling activities carried across the globe. Recent increase in oilfield discoveries and rise in drilling activities will drive the drilling and completion fluids market over the next five years. The increasing world energy demand and READ MORE >

Drilling fluids and completion fluids are critical for any drilling and exploration activity carried onshore or offshore. They are used extensively worldwide at drilling sites for cooling the wellbore, remove the rock cuttings, and transport them to the surface. The high world energy demand and rise in population are forcing the need to drill as deep as possible and in challenging geological conditions. The shale boom in North America and other regions have again fueled the growth of drilling and completion fluids. The largest application area for drilling fluids and completion fluids is the onshore application as most of the drilling activities are carried onshore. The major countries for the drilling and completion fluids market are the U.S., Canada, and Russia where most of the drilling activities are taking place.

M-I SWACO (U.S.), Halliburton (U.S.), Baker Hughes (U.S.), Newpark Drilling (U.S.), Tetra Technologies Inc. (U.S.), and Anchor Drilling (U.S.) are the major players constituting major share of the global drilling fluids and completion fluids market. Most of these companies mainly relied on growth strategies such as new product launch, joint ventures & contracts, mergers & acquisitions, and investments & expansions in diversified geographic areas. The capital expenditure and operating expenditure of the oil and gas industry are very huge in terms of value. To increase their geographic presence and market penetration, companies preferred merger and acquisition. New product launches and investments & expansion are the key strategies that are helping the companies to penetrate the existing market, and expand into the new and emerging markets.

Major drilling fluids and completion fluid types include water-based systems, oil-based systems, synthetic-based systems, and other based systems. Water-based system is the largest type in terms of revenue, generating more than half of the market share.
