Drilling Fluids & Chemicals Market in the US By Product and Location
Published: May 31, 2017 Content info: 108 Pages
Description

After a steep drop in drilling activity in 2015 and 2016, the markets for drilling fluids and drilling fluid additives are expected to rebound at a rate of over ten percent per year through 2021. The recovery will be uneven, however, with certain regions presenting more promising opportunities than others. Drilling companies try to reduce fluid cost and rig time by choosing between water-, oil-, and synthetic-based drilling fluids and selecting the right mix of additives.

Drilling Fluids & Chemicals Market answers such questions as:

  • In which areas of the US will demand for drilling fluids and additives grow most quickly?
  • How is the industry adapting to challenging drilling conditions and increasing well complexity?
  • How are pricing pressures from drilling fluid customers affecting the product mix?
