Report Highlights

The U.S. fracking fluid market was valued at $18.4 billion in 2012, grew to $26 billion in 2013, and is projected to reach about $37.3 billion in 2018, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.4% for the five-year period, 2013 to 2018.

Report Includes

  • An overview of the U.S. market for fracking fluids, which are used in hydraulic fracturing, or "hydrofracking," for shale gas and oil production.
  • Analyses of global market trends, with data from 2012, estimates for 2013, and projections of CAGRs for the period of 2013 to 2018.
  • Breakdowns of energy production from shale formations, production sites being fractured, and production sites by company and market share.
  • Examinations of hydrofracturing technology, including conventional, nonwater horizontal, staged fracks for hydrocarbon harvesting (zipper fracks), and gas-based fracking.
  • Comprehensive company profiles of production site operators and fracking fluid suppliers.

Report Scope

This study provides a comprehensive overview of the fracking fluids market in the U.S., including the hydraulic fracturing technologies most widely used, and the amount and type of production, and presents market forecasts over the next five-year period (2013 to 2018) for each major component and the specific additives in use.

The research covers the market drivers propelling the growth of the fracking fluid industry, the industry structure, trends, and the company profiles of the major production operators and fracking fluid suppliers for the U.S. domestic market. Extensive analysis of the production from each type of hydraulic fracturing technology supports the estimated production growth rates for the specific fracking fluids presented.

BCC Research separates the market analysis into five distinct sections.

The first section presents an overview of energy production from shale resources in the U.S. This section covers the production capacity of each fuel, gas, natural gas, and natural gas liquids across the domestic shale formations.

The second section provides a top-level view of the fracturing technologies that have the greatest influence over the usage of fracking fluids in the market. This section identifies the major hydraulic fracturing techniques most frequently used and presents their baseline fuel production level and production estimates over the next five years.

The third section offers the capstone presentation of the relevant fracking fluids in the U.S. market and their revenues in millions of dollars and production in millions of pounds. The report displays sales values from 2012 and estimates of sales from 2013 to 2018.

In the fourth section, BCC Research presents a diagram of the industry and analyzes the industry structure, market drivers and trends. The analysis covers the forces positioned to inhibit the growth of hydraulic fracturing in the U.S., including the sustainability, environmental and health concerns.

The fifth and final section includes an extensive list of the major players in the industry, separated into three groups: the production site operators, the fracking fluid suppliers and the regulatory agencies by state.
