Fracking Fluids and Chemicals Market Sees Increasing Demand from Horizontal and Directional Wells: Fact.MR


by Team Fact.MR

Rising popularity of horizontal and directional wells is anticipated to drive fracking fluids and chemicals market, according to a recent report published by Fact.MR. Horizontal drilling requires large amount of fracking fluids and chemicals, thus proving a key stimulant to growth registered in the market.

Horizontal drilling has been creating prospects for the expansion of the oil and gas industry with increased focus on shale and tight sands reservoirs. Also, horizontal drilling has lesser impact on environment compared to vertical drilling which is another key factor favoring market for fracking fluids and chemicals.

Horizontal and directional wells hold the largest share in the market owing to increasing number of horizontally drilled wells, especially in countries such as the U.S., Canada, China, and Russia.

This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period, thus acting as a major driver of global fracking fluids and chemicals market.
