Drilling chemicals is used in oil and gas exploration, bore well drilling, mineral extraction, and coal seam gas drilling. Drilling chemical is bifurcated into onshore chemicals and offshore chemicals. Application of chemical define the category, whether drilling is onshore or offshore.

The chemicals play vital role in cooling and lubrication of drilling equipment, stabilized and support the bore well area, maintain required pressure at the time of drilling, and remove cuttings from bore wells.

Further, energy and mineral exploration is the key application area of drilling chemicals. The global drilling chemical market is estimated to witness exponential growth rate in coming years. The growth rate is attributed to widening of application range of drilling chemicals in extraction of natural gas, oil, base metals, and precious stones. Growing urbanization and industrialization is also likely to play significant role in the expansion of the market.

Further, application of drilling chemicals in hydraulic and horizontal is likely to propel growth of the global drilling market.

Development of onshore wells is gaining major traction in drilling chemical market, when compared to offshore wells. This is due to high cost of offshore walls.

Decline in number of reserves and onshore waters coupled with innovation is fuelling activities in deep-water offshore regions. The scenarios is witnessed in West Africa, the U.S., Brazil, and the Gulf of Mexico. Considering number of oil gains and increasing offshore activities in Brazil makes the region one of the rapid growing regions.

Drilling chemical affect the environment directly. Thus, key players operating in the global drilling chemical market have to comply with the strict regulations for safety concern, health concerns, and the environment set by government bodies

The product development cycle is done strictly under scrutiny of government officials in order to mitigate health and environment hazards.

Drilling chemicals are used in metal and mineral extraction, oil and gas exploration, coal seam gas drilling, and for borewell drilling. Drilling chemicals can be broadly classified into offshore and onshore chemicals depending on the applications of these chemicals. The main functions of these chemicals include maintaining the pressure, cooling and lubrication of the drilling equipment, removing cuttings from bore wells, and to support and stabilize the borewell area. 
Consumption of drilling chemicals is primarily driven by the expenditure in energy and mineral exploration. The global market for drilling chemicals is witnessing significant growth in the past few years. Increasing demand for base metals, precious metals, oil, and natural gas is driving the growth of the drilling chemicals’ market. This is largely driven by urbanization and industrialization in developing countries. 
Among all the regions Northern America dominates the market followed by Latin America, Africa, and the Middle East. Development of shale in Canada and the U.S. is driving the market for drilling chemicals, particularly in hydraulic and horizontal drilling. The development of onshore wells will fuel the drilling chemical market more than offshore wells since the cost of offshore wells is considerably higher than onshore ones.  Decreasing reserves in shallow and onshore waters and the development in drilling technologies are driving the activities in deepwater offshore regions. This is mostly witnessed by Brazil, West Africa, U.S., and the Gulf of Mexico. Brazil is the fastest growing market due to considerable oil gains and increased offshore activity. Drilling chemicals have a direct impact on the environment and hence product manufacturers have to follow strict regulatory procedures to address safety, the environment, and health concerns. Government bodies are involved in product development life cycle to minimize health and environment hazards. Companies producing ‘zero-waste’ chemicals are gaining competitive advantage. 
Some of the leading participants in the industry are Global Fluids & Chemical Co., United Mud Chem, Academichem (Beijing) Co. Ltd., Baker Hughes, Halliburton, Newpark Drilling Fluids LLC, Champion Technologies, and M-I SWACO.
