Global Market for Fracking Fluids to Reach $88.5 Billion by 2019; Europe to Witness Highest Growth of 38.3% CAGR

January 02, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., January 02, 2015 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report on fracking fluids that its global market reached $56 billion in 2014. This market should grow to about $88.5 billion in 2019, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 9.6% from 2014 to 2019.

Industry experts estimate that the fastest growth market for fracking fluids will be in Europe, reaching a 38.3% CAGR by 2019. Currently, this region has only one country (Turkey) with extant hydraulic fracturing operations. BCC Research anticipates within the next five years four other countries in Europe (France, Germany, Ukraine and the U.K.) will move beyond the preliminary exploratory activities and start commercial oriented hydraulic fracturing operations.

While the upsides for the prosperous growth of the fracking fluids industry reaches revenues in the trillions of dollars, the consequences of failure to properly address the environmental and water quality concerns from the use of fracking fluids may have staggering public health issues. “The major trends that challenge growth of the fracking fluid market include tightening regulations in countries with proven technically recoverable shale gas and oil reserves, waste disposal and the rise in social activism against the hydraulic fracturing technology in key markets,” says BCC Research analyst Dr. Gordon Nangmenyi.

The successful development of global hydraulic fracturing not only has a direct effect on the fracking fluid industry, but also on the pumps, steel, water and wastewater management industries. The growth of hydraulic fracturing in the U.S. may have far reaching effects for the global economy and help to reframe the landscape for global energy co-operation.

The Global Market for Fracking Fluids covers the global fracking fluids market — including the most popular technologies — the amount and type of production, and presents market forecasts over the next five-year period (2014 to 2019) for each major component and the specific additives in use.
