Market overview

Drilling fluids are also known as drilling mud, a heavy, viscous mixture used to carry rock cuttings to the surface of the borehole in the oil and gas industry. It is also used to lubricate and cool the drill bit and maintain borehole pressure. As urbanization and industrialization increase, this has increased the demand for energy in different sectors. Most of the energy needs of industries are met by the oil and gas industry, hence an increase in exploration and production processes. For the exploration operation, drilling fluids are required. In addition, exploration processes by most oil companies began in offshore platforms and it is necessary to maintain drilling pressure there, for this purpose a large number of drilling fluids will be required. Also, many industries such as pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, fertilizers, synthetic fragrances, plastics, and others need petroleum-based products to manufacture different products..

Some of the major players operating in the market include Schlumberger Limited, Baker Hughes Company, Halliburton Co., Weatherford International plc., National Oilwell Varco Inc., Tetra Technologies, Inc., Newpark Resources, Inc., CES Energy Solutions Corp., Flotek Industries Inc. and Horizon Mud Company.

Impact of COVID-19

Owing to forecasted travel limitations and dismal financial performance of market players in 2020, the spread of COVID-19 pandemic has adversely affected the drilling fluids industry. Supply chain execution, regulatory and policy changes, labor dependency, working capital management, and liquidity and solvency management are all major concerns for manufacturers. drilling fluids. Since the COVID-19 outbreak subsided significantly in early 2021, many businesses are resuming operations. In terms of supply and demand, Chinaas an automotive manufacturing powerhouse, controls the global automotive industry. China supply shortages set off a chain reaction around the world.

The global Drilling Fluids market report is studied extensively with several aspects which would help the stakeholders to make their decisions more carefully.

  • Based on well type, the market is categorized into conventional and high pressure high temperature (HPHT). Among the two, HPHT holds a major share of the drilling fluids market. HPHT wells usually have high pressure or high temperature or both. Thus, to maintain the pressure and temperature of the well, large amounts of drilling fluids will be required while drilling the well.

  • Based on application, the market is classified into onshore and offshore. Of the two, onshore occupies a prominent position in the drilling fluids markets. Production and placement onshore takes less time and is more cost-effective than offshore. In addition, the demand for energy and petroleum products is increasing, so there is a need to increase exploration processes on the onshore reservoir, which will increase the demand for drilling fluids.
