The proppants market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.79% during the period 2018-2024. Proppants are small particles that are made up of solid material like sand or man-made ceramic material. The material is used as a part of the process of hydraulic fracturing and is considered as one of the most impactful innovation of this century. The demand for proppants is primarily driven by the increased focus on shale gas production in especially North American region which is boosting the demand for proppants. Rising E&P activities across global oil and gas sector is the major driver of proppants market. Advancements in fracturing technologies coupled with rising adoption of new drilling techniques is also fuelling the demand for proppants. Increasing consumption of proppants per well, supported by growing demand for frac sand proppant is also boosting the growth of proppants market.

Growing shift towards the usage of ceramic proppants will continue to propel the growth of proppants market during the forecast period. However, growing environmental concerns and strict legislations are currently hindering the growth of proppants market. Geographically, proppants market is segmented as North America, South America, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and Asia Pacific. North America will dominate the global proppants market owing to the rising exploration of unconventional crude oil reserves in countries like U.S. and Mexico. Increasing hydraulic fracturing application for shale gas and tight oil purposes is also positively impacting the demand for proppants in this region.
