The requirement of advanced technology in E&P activities such as hydraulic fracturing is fulfilled by various formulated drilling fluids that help maintain the wellbore stability, pump pressure, and avoidance of friction and corrosion. The acrylamide terpolymers have the heterocyclic ring and are beneficial in shear degradation and viscosity. Furthermore, rising oil production and exploration projects are boosting the use of drilling fluids, thereby creating growth in the fluid loss additives market in the coming years.
Fluid Loss Additives Market Segment Analysis- By End-Use Industry
By end-use industry, the petroleum drilling industry segment has the largest share of more than 30% in 2021 and is expected to grow the fluid loss additives market size in the forecast period. The growing consumption of petroleum-based products is influencing the growth scope for the fluid loss additives industry. The rising upstream activities in the oil and gas sector, majorly exploration and production are creating a drive in the fluid loss additives market. The fluid loss additives have major applications in the petroleum drilling sector. The fluids in the petroleum sector are expensive and extensive losses can create major issues, including resource scarcity, thereby boosting the fluid oil additives consumption. However, the growing shale gas and shale oil developments are leading to an increase in global petroleum drilling activities and oil production. According to data from Energy Information Administration, the offshore production for dry natural gas in 2020 was around 1 trillion cubic feet, with 71% production contributed by the Gulf of Mexico. Furthermore, crude oil production stood at 32.2 million metric tons for the year 2020 in India as per India Brand Equity Foundation. The high demand for crude oil in various sectors such as transportation, aerospace, and others is contributing to increased drilling and exploration activities across the world. This will offer a major growth opportunity in the fluid loss additives market in the forecast period.
Fluid Loss Additives Market Segment Analysis – By Geography
By geographical analysis, North America held the largest share of more than 37% in the fluid loss additives market for the year 2021 and will dominate the market during the forecast period. The rising development in shale oil and gas projects in this region is influencing major growth in this region. The United States is the largest natural gas-producing nation and has made various investments and contributions in drilling technology such as hydraulic fracturing, horizontal drilling, and others. This has led to high consumption of fluid loss additives in the drilling fluids. According to the United States Energy Information Administration (EIA), the production of crude oil increased from 10809 barrels per day in September 2021 to 11473 barrels per day in October 2021. The rising consumption of crude oil and natural gas in major areas such as Canada and the United States is creating a high demand for fluid loss additives in the North American region. Furthermore, with the rise in shale gas exploration projects and drilling operations, the fluid loss additives market share in North America is expected to increase during the forecast period.
