Proppants are used for keeping the fracture created by hydraulic fracturing, open while drilling for oil and gas to flow towards the well head. The extraction is usually conducted in low permeable reservoirs of oil and natural gas. Globally, development of efficient and advance technology, rising energy demand across the globe, growing number of horizontal wells along with consumption of proppant per well, Emergence of multi-stage fracturing leading to increased number of fracturing stages, and advantageous properties of proppants such as, high strength, conductivity, and crush resistance are the prime growth drivers of global proppants market. In addition, emergence of eco-friendly non-phenolic resin coated proppants, and emerging economies such as China, India and others, will create new opportunities for global proppants market. However, low international crude oil prices, stringent government regulations, and higher cost of initial investments are the key restraints for global proppants market.

Geographically North America dominated global proppants market because of drilling and completion activities in U.S and Canada. Asia Pacific is projected to have fastest growth, owing to rapidly increasing number of horizontal wells in North America, China and Australia having presence of enormous shale gas reserves and hydraulic fracturing projects, and rising hydraulic fracking activities primarily for unconventional oil in developing nations such as China, and India in this region. Among all the applications, shale gas segment has the highest market share in global proppants market due to spur in use in power generation and transportation. Sand is the market leader among all types of proppants, owing to its low cost and high availability.
