    Market Drivers

    The growth in the global drilling and completion fluids market is majorly driven by the increasing demand for oil and gas and other related reasons. Here are some more key drivers of the global drilling and completion fluids market –

    1. Rising demand for crude oil: The global demand for crude oil is growing rapidly and is set to grow in the coming years owing to the rising population and energy demand from developing economies. The global demand for crude oil is projected to rise by 6% between 2022 and 2028 to reach 105.7 million barrels per day (mb/d). To serve the demand, the drilling activities will grow, leading to the demand for drilling and completion fluids.
    2. Growing shale gas production – According to a report by PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) report, by 2035, shale oil production could boost the world economy by up to $2.7 trillion. Shale gas production has been increasing significantly due to the developing technologies of extracting shale gas economically. This has led to an increase in the demand for drilling fluids as these fluids are essential for the drilling and completion of shale gas wells.
    3. Growing offshore drilling activities – The offshore rig market and drilling activities are witnessing rapid growth, driven by advancements in regions like Guyana, Brazil, and the Middle East, states International Energy Agency (IEA). Offshore drilling also is said to yield a higher quantity of oil and natural gas. This process requires special drilling and completion fluids.

    Key Players

    Some of the major players in the global market are-

    Segments Analysis

    By Application Type

    Based on the application type, the market is segmented as onshore and offshore. 

    The onshore segment held the larger share of the global market in 2022 and is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. The mounting use of drilling fluids in the hard rock drilling process is expected to boost the onshore applications market for drilling and completion fluids.

    By Fluid System Type

    Based on the fluid system type, the market is further segmented as water-based, oil-based, synthetic-based, and others. 

    The water-based fluid systems segment is expected to remain dominant during the forecast period. They are suitable for onshore and offshore drilling activities. Further, being economical as compared to non-aqueous-based fluids is another factor that drives the growth of this segment.

    By Well Type

    Based on the well type, the drilling and completion fluids market is segregated into HPHT wells and conventional wells.

    The HPHT wells segment is estimated to register faster growth during the forecasted period. The technological advancements have immensely supported overcoming the challenges faced in drilling HPHT wells.

    In addition, because most of the conventional wells are mature, there remains an increased need for the drilling of HPHT wells to find new hydrocarbon reserves.

    By Region

    In terms of regions, the market in North America is estimated to be the largest region in the global drilling and completion fluids market during the forecast period. Factors influencing the growth of the market are an increase in drilling activities and a surge in the exploration of shale gas reserves.

    Asia-Pacific and Europe are also likely to offer sizeable growth opportunities during the forecast period.
