Drilling Fluids & Chemicals Market in the US

After a sharp contraction between 2015 and 2016 due to weakness in drilling activity, demand for drilling fluids and chemicals is expected to rebound beginning in 2017. US demand for drilling fluid is projected to rise about 11% per year to nearly 1.5 billion gallons in 2021, while demand for drilling fluid additives is expected to grow 13% per year to $930 million.

This report covers demand for drilling fluid and drilling fluid additives by Product and Location. Data on drilling fluids are given in gallons with selected data in dollars. Data on drilling fluid additives are given in dollars with selected data in pounds. Dollar values are evaluated at the end user’s level, with select data evaluated at the manufacturer’s level.

Drilling fluid products covered in the study include:

Water-based drilling fluids

Oil-based drilling fluids
