Market Overview

Drilling fluids are also known as drilling mud is a mixture that is heavy and viscous used to carry out the rock cuttings to the surface from the borehole in the oil and gas industry. It is also used for lubricating and cooling the drill bit and maintaining the borehole pressure. As urbanization and industrialization are increasing, it has increased the demand for energy in the various sectors. Considerably most of the industries' energy requirements are fulfilled by the oil and gas industry, so there is an increase in exploration and production processes. For the exploration operation, there is a requirement for drilling fluids. Moreover, the exploration processes by most petroleum companies have started in offshore rigs and it is necessary to maintain the borehole pressure there, for this purpose it will require a large number of drilling fluids. Furthermore, many industries like pharmaceuticals, cosmetics, fertilizers, synthetic fragrances, plastics, and others require petroleum-based products for manufacturing 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.

COVID-19 Impact

Due to travel limitations and the projected dismal financial performance of market players in 2020, the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has hurt the Drilling Fluids industry. Supply chain execution, regulatory and policy changes, labor reliance, working capital management, and liquidity and solvency management are all major concerns for Drilling Fluids manufacturers. Since the COVID-19 epidemic has considerably diminished by the beginning of 2021, a lot of businesses are resuming operations. In terms of demand and supply, China, as an automobile manufacturing powerhouse, is controlling the global automotive industry. China's supply shortages have triggered a chain reaction throughout the world.

The global Drilling Fluids market report is studied thoroughly with several aspects that would help stakeholders in making their decisions more curated.

  • Based on well type, the market is categorized into conventional and high-pressure high-temperature (HPHT). Among both, HPHT has a prominent share in the drilling fluids market. HPHT wells have usually high pressure or high temperature or both. Thus, to maintain the well pressure and temperature it will be required large amounts of drilling fluids while drilling the well.
  • Based on application, the market is categorized into onshore and offshore. Among both, onshore has a prominent share in the drilling fluids markets. The production and set-up onshore take less time and it is more cost-effective than offshore. Furthermore, the demand for energy and petroleum products is increasing therefore, there is a need for increasing the exploration processes on the onshore reservoir, thereby it will increase the demand for drilling fluids.
