    Based on Type

    The proppant market is segmented into Frac Sand, Resin-Coated Proppant, and Ceramic Proppant. A common proppant is frac sand. It is a naturally occurring proppant crafted from sandstone of the highest quality. Most of these proppants can be used with a 6,000-psi closure pressure. Frac sand has a substantial market share and is frequently chosen as a proppant when oil prices are falling, and E&P companies need to cut production costs. During the forecast period, the frac sand market is anticipated to be driven by rising US shale gas production as well as the creation of new shale gas basins around the globe.

    Regional Analysis

    Asia-Pacific is expected to remain the largest market for proppants during the forecast period. The development of shale gas in the area will enhance domestic demand for natural gas in major APAC nations. By reducing the countries' reliance on outside resources, the mining of shale gas is projected to improve the region's energy security. Shale gas development is still in its early stages, though. China is the main force behind countries employing cutting-edge technologies to extract shale gas from their reserves.

    Shale gas extraction is riskier and more expensive than producing conventional gas. The extraction procedure is expected to be efficient, economical, and socially responsible. The region that produces the most coalbed methane worldwide is the Asia-Pacific. High coalbed methane reserves can be found, among other nations in the region, in China, India, Australia, Japan, and Indonesia. The region's low conventional natural gas deposits and high natural gas prices on the global market stimulate the development of coalbed methane. Due to the greatest coalbed methane deposits in the world, Australia is the leading nation in the area in terms of high commercial coalbed methane production. Additionally, these nations have large shale gas deposits.
