The main factor driving global demand growth is a booming oil and gas industry. If the number of oil and gas exploration activities increases across the world, the market for frac sand increases as well. Hydraulic fracturing is a commonly used technique in the oil and gas industry to satisfy the increasingly growing demand for petroleum, oil, and gas around the world.
As a result, the demand for frac sand is growing as well, as it is an important component of the project, with thousands of tons of frac sand being required per hydraulic fracturing process. The introduction of fine mesh frac sand, which improves the flow of natural fluids when they are released from the shale, is also propelling the industry forward.
Over the forecast period, the factors that will contribute to its success include its cost-effectiveness as compared to resin-coated and ceramic proppants.
Industry Definition and Major Segments
Frac sand is made from high-purity sandstone and is a naturally occurring crystalline silica (quartz) sand. Frac sand varies only marginally from other types of sand in terms of composition, as quartz silica grains are a major component of most inter-coastal sands. Other sand, on the other hand, is made up of a number of minerals and rocks that are less durable than quartz.
The market is segmented on the basis of type into:
- White Sand
- Brown Sand
On the basis of application, the industry is divided into:
- Oil Exploration
- Natural Gas Exploration
Regionally, the market can be segmented into:
- North America
- Asia Pacific
- Latin America
- Middle East and Africa
Unconventional energy sources are being increasingly explored and given significant momentum over the past decade as readily available natural gas and crude oil supplies have been depleting. Unlike traditional oil and gas resources, which are rapidly depleting, unconventional resources are abundant in many countries, including the United States, Canada, China, and Argentina.
During the forecast period, this is expected to propel the frac sand market forward. The development of fine mesh frac sand, which improves the flow of natural fluids when they are released from the shale, is also aiding to propel the market forward. Other aspects that contribute to its popularity include its cost-effectiveness when compared to resin-coated and ceramic proppants.
