Research and Markets: Global Proppants Market Forecast to Grow at a CAGR of 10.58% over the Period 2014-2019

September 24, 2015
By Business Wire News


Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Proppants Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

China has a good base of ceramic proppants produced by reputed global manufacturers. Since China has abundant availability of ceramic proppant raw materials, most of the world- renowned technology leaders have either set up manufacturing facilities in the country or are dependent on imports of raw materials from China. Chinese proppants are 15-20% cheaper than those from other countries such as India because of the low manufacturing costs.

According to the report, though the crude oil market is going through a downswing, the increasing energy demand all over the world is expected to contribute to the growth of the hydraulic fracturing and proppant markets. After witnessing the shale gas boom in North America, many countries across the globe are exploring the unconventional method of oil and gas exploration for extraction.

One of the major challenges in the global proppant market is the prevailing low international crude oil prices. The drop in crude oil prices makes shale extraction uneconomical, and as a result, the global proppant market revenues decline because of the reduction in the hydraulic fracturing activity.
