North America Drilling Fluids Market

North America Drilling Fluids Market (WBF, OBF and SBF) by Application (Onshore and Offshore) - Industry Analysis, Size Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast 2012 - 2019

North America Drilling Fluids Market: Snapshot

The North America drilling fluids market is growing significantly in the drilling process for mineral extraction bore wells, and oil and gas extraction. The drilling fluids also known as drilling mud are used to lubricate and cool the drill bits, carry rock cuttings to the surface, and maintains stability of the well. Moreover, they also function as emulsifiers, corrosion inhibitors, filtration reducers, defoamers, shale inhibitors, biocides, and weighing agents, with specific additives.

Increasing implementation of horizontal drilling is expected to boost the demand for drilling fluids across the region. In addition to that, developing deep sea reserves and rising demand for drilling activities supplemented by the shift towards exploring and developing are also projected to flourish the drilling market in North America.

According to Transparency Market Research, the North America drilling fluids market is projected to attain a valuation of US$7.2 bn by the end of 2019. During the course of seven years between 2013 and 2019, the market is anticipated to rise at 7.5% CAGR.

Low Cost of Water Based Fluids to Boost Demand for Drilling Fluids

North America drilling fluids market is categorized on the basis of product and application of drilling fluids. Based on the oil and gas industry, the drilling fluids market is bifurcated into onshore and offshore. Out of these, onshore drilling fluids segment is projected to dominate the North America drilling fluid market during the forecast period. According to the report the onshore application of drilling fluids in comparatively high than offshore.

Based on product type, the market is segmented on the basis of oil based fluids (OBF), water based fluids (WBF), and synthetic based fluids (SBF). Among these, water based fluids are likely to dominate the market due to its low cost and environmental friendly content during the forecast tenure. Due to technological advancements, inhibition properties, and improved efficiency, the water based fluids is likely to grow in offshore explorations.

Mexico to Strengthen Its Position Due to Increasing Access to Foreign Companies 

In 2012, the U.S. dominated the North America drilling fluids market and held 80% of revenue in this market. After the U.S., Canada has led the market but faced sluggish growth rate because of unrealized potential of shale gas. On the other hand, Mexico was considered one of the niche markets, and access to foreign companies in this country is projected to rise in the near future. In addition to that, increasing investment in onshore and offshore drilling activities is anticipated to accelerate the overall product demand during the forecast period.

In 2012, Schlumberger Technology Corporation was considered as a leading player on the North America drilling fluids market by holding substantial shares in the market. The company merged with M-I SWACO that helped them in reinforcing their position in this region. Among the various oilfield service companies, Halliburton Company is considered as one of the leading players.
