The Hydraulic Fracturing Market Size is valued at 48.91 Billion in 2022 and is predicted to reach 98.38 Billion by the year 2031 at a 8.3% CAGR during the forecast period for 2023-2031.

Hydraulic Fracturing Market

Hydraulic fracturing is a well-stimulation technique that fractures bedrock rocks with a pressurised liquid to facilitate the extraction of oil and gas reserves. The expanding demand for oil, gas, and other petroleum products from developing economies and increased attempts to cut the cost of oil and gas production will drive market expansion.

The rising global need for energy, notably oil and natural gas, drives the hydraulic fracturing business. As conventional reserves dwindle, there is a greater reliance on unconventional resources, such as shale gas and tight oil, which need hydraulic fracturing to extract. The market is being pushed by the requirement to meet the increasing energy demands of various industries.

However, the pandemic cut worldwide oil and gas demand significantly due to lockdowns, travel restrictions, and economic slowdowns. This reduced drilling and production activity, affecting demand for hydraulic fracturing services. 

Recent Developments: 

  • In Apr 2023, Halliburton transferred three hydraulic fracturing fleets from natural gas basins to oil basins, the company stated. The US oilfield services behemoth revealed during its first-quarter 2023 earnings call that in a weaker natural gas market, customers had requested that the company relocate three of its fleets to oil basins. E-fleets were diesel-free hydraulic fracturing fleets that were typically powered by gas turbines and electricity.

Market Segmentation: 

The Segmentation of Hydraulic Fracturing Market is on the basis of Technology, Application, and Well Type. on the basis of technology, the market is segmented as plug & perf and sliding sleeve. The application segment includes shale gas, tight oil, and tight gas. The market is segmented by well type into horizontal and vertical wells.  

Based On Technology, The Plug & Perf Segment Is Accounted As A Major Contributor In The Hydraulic Fracturing Market 

The plug & perf category is expected to hold a major share of the global Hydraulic Fracturing Market in 2022. The plug and perf technology applies to both vertical and horizontal wells. It is the most popular and widely utilized fracturing technology for unconventional wells. The plug & perf category is expected to increase significantly because it is the most widely utilized technology due to its easiness of operation and low cost. It improves production performance while also lowering production costs. 

The Shale Gas Segment Witnessed Growth At A Rapid Rate 

The shale gas segment is projected to grow at a rapid rate in the global Hydraulic Fracturing Market. There are several shale reserves all over the world. According to the EIA, there are 48 shale gas basins in 32 nations, each with almost 70 shale gas deposits. China, for example, has 21.8 TCM of technically viable shale gas reserves and 764.3 BCM of proven shale gas reserves, both located primarily in marine facies in the Sichuan basin. Similarly, Argentina has 802 billion cubic feet of theoretically recoverable shale gas deposits, while Algeria has the world’s third-largest undiscovered shale gas resources, with 20 trillion cubic meters of technically recoverable shale gas. Such enormous reserves are driving the hydraulic fracturing market. 

In The Region, The North American Hydraulic Fracturing Market Holds A Significant Revenue Share 

The North America Hydraulic Fracturing Market is expected to register the maximum market share in terms of revenue in the near future. The US is a significant and leading country with enormous potential for shale gas, tight gas reserves, and oil and natural gas production. Industry standards, effective state regulations, best practices, and supportive federal legislation are protecting communities and the environment. 

Furthermore, these laws will increase natural gas output, allowing the United States to maintain its market share advantage. As a result, forthcoming breakthroughs and ongoing investments in unconventional gas production are boosting market expansion in the US. Oil and gas companies in China launched initiatives to liberate natural gas from shale rock formations, which led to the use of fracturing for reserve exploration. The government has pledged to increase local output and international participation in the exploration and production (E&P) business, indicating an increase in production and investments.
