Global Fracking Water Treatment Overview
The Global Fracking Water Treatment is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach a market value of USD XX million by 2026.
Fracking Water Treatment are used for treatment of wastewater that arises from the extraction of shell oil or gas process. Fracking involves injection of large amount of pressurized water which creates fissures or cracks in the underground formations and forces release of oil and gas, and flowback of water that comes to the surface with oil and gas. This wastewater has to disposed or reused. The extraction activities have strict regulations for wastewater from fracking operations that should undergo water treatment to be reused.
Global Fracking Water Treatment - Market Dynamics
The global Fracking Water Treatment is primarily driven by rising importance of water, that has created the demand for such equipment that recycle the wastewater which could again be used for fracking purpose or dumped safely which do not hamper the fresh water present underneath the surface or on the surface. And the strict government regulations like underground Injection Control provisions of the 1974 Safe Drinking Water Act and implemented by US states along with their additional provisions, also drive the market for Fracking water treatment.
According to EIA, water required for natural gas extraction may increase over the future owing to increasing extraction processes. Treated water is touted as potential source for fracking application which is likely to boost the demand for fracking water treatment in near future.
However, the availability of alternatives for hydraulic fracturing like Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) Fracturing, Foam-Based Fracturing and Channel Fracturing Technology are not using water and no requirement of treating wastewater will be there. So, the usage of alternatives for fracturing will be hampering the growth of the Fracking Water Treatment market.
Global Fracking Water Treatment - Segment Analysis
By Water Disposal type, the global Fracking Water Treatment is segmented into Deep well injection and treatment and recycle. Treatment and recycle type have the dominant position in the Fracking Water Treatment and is expected to retain its dominance in the forecasted period, due to the strict government regulation that is making the companies to treat the waste water for using again for fracturing or for disposing off. While the deep well injection type is losing its market share due to the ban for disposing of wastewater underneath the surface in countries like UK.
Global Fracking Water Treatment- Geographical Analysis
By geography, the global Fracking Water Treatment is segmented into North America, Asia-Pacific (APAC), Europe, South America, and Middle East and Africa (MEA).
North America holds the largest market share for Fracking Water Treatment and will continue to hold the market in the forecasted period, due to the large exploration of shell oil and gas. The APAC region will also witness the fastest growth in the market as the new reserves for shell oil and gas are found in China, which is making them to tap the new reserve as the shell oil and gas exploration is less costly then the other oil and exploration. However, Europe is after North America and APAC in terms of market share of fracking water treatment.
Increased restriction from REACH and GPA to reduce excessive wastage of water coupled with scarcity of fresh water in the region is expected to drive fracking water treatment market in Europe.
Global Fracking Water Treatment- Competitive Analysis
Key players are adopting strategies such as investing in R&D, new product launches, expansion in both manufacturing units and distribution channels to stand out as strong competitors in the market. Global Fracking Water Treatment is a fragmented market with the presence of various global players in the market. The major players include Aquatech International, Halliburton, Schlumberger, SUEZ, Veolia, Total Separation Solutions, Oasys Water Inc., Altela Inc., Agua Dulce Technologies, and Gasfrac Energy Services.
In November 2018, Agua Dulce Technologies, LLC has developed pervaporation technology that uses multiple ceramic tubes with high surface areas that separate freshwater from mineral salts using moderately low temperature and pressure.
In July 2018, Halliburton Company acquired Athlon Solutions, LLC, a provider of specialty water and process treatment chemicals and customized engineering solutions. Athlon became part of the Halliburton Multi-Chem business line, a provider of specialty oilfield chemicals for stimulation, midstream, and production customers. Combining the two companies has strengthen Halliburton's chemicals technology, manufacturing, and supply chain.
