Drilling Fluids Market
According to a new market report published by Transparency Market Research, the global market for drilling fluids was
valued at USD 7.20 billion in 2011 and is expected to reach USD 12.31 billion by 2018, growing at a CAGR of 8% from
2012 to 2018.
Depleting onshore reserves have prompted the industry to shift focus towards developing deep sea reserves, which
increases the overall cost of wells and in turn generates more revenue for drilling fluid manufacturers. This trend is
expected to drive the global demand for drilling fluids over the forecast period. Increasing exploration of shale gas, coal
bed methane (CBM) and other unconventional resources promotes the use of horizontal drilling, which is also expected to
boost market revenue for drilling fluids. However, growing environmental concerns regarding the use and disposal of
drilling fluids coupled with geopolitical issues in key oil producers in the Middle East is expected to hinder the market
growth over the forecast period.
