COVID-19 impact on the global proppants market

In 2020, the proppants market declined by 27% in terms of volume, which was due to the oil price crash triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic. The unprecedented demand shock in the oil industry in 2020 led to a historic drop in the oil prices, as governments around the world closed down businesses, issued stay-at home mandates, and restricted travel. Oil prices at the start of 2020 started strong, and by April, the impact of reduced economic activities around the world created an oversupply of oil in the international market, and oil prices plunged dramatically. Another factor that majorly contributed to the freefall of oil prices was the oil price war between Saudi Arabia and Russia, which was initiated at the start of March with both the countries failing to agree on the oil production levels. The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries' (OPEC) failure to act swiftly to cut down oil production to mitigate the lower demand also made the oil prices reach their lowest levels in more than 20 years.

Frac Sand: the fastest-growing type of proppants in the type segment.

Frac sand is a widely used proppant. It is a naturally occurring proppant made from high purity sandstone. These proppants are mostly applicable under closure pressure of 6,000 psi. Frac sand holds a large share of the proppants market and  is the preferred proppants at times when the oil prices declines and E&P operators have to reduce there production cost. The growing US shale gas and the development of new shale gas bains around the world are expected to drive the frac sand during the forecast period.

APAC estimated to be the fastest-growing market for proppants.

The domestic demand for natural gas will increase in major APAC economies due to the development of shale gas in the region. The extraction of shale gas is likely to enhance the region’s energy security by allowing the countries to become less dependent on external sources. However, the development of shale gas is at the initial stage. The increasing shale gas production in China with the country trying to replicate the US shale gas boom will majorly drive the proppants demand in APAC during the forecast period.

Proppants market dynamics

Driver: Improvements in fracturing technology and new drilling techniques

The combination of horizontal drilling and multistage fracturing technologies has completely changed the scenario for oil and gas production worldwide. Exploration and production companies are experimenting with more sand per stage into their horizontals that are drilled and completed, which is projected to accelerate with time. Since 2013, the average sand consumption per horizontal well has tripled and is still projected to increase through longer laterals and greater loadings per lateral foot. Technologies are developed to increase the use of natural sand/frac sand instead of ceramic sand, resulting in the high demand for proppants for drilling. The use of frac sand reduces the raw material cost by more than 50%. Hence, major shale plays are open to experiment and install new equipment and technologies that are encouraging the consumption of natural sand for fracturing.

Restraints: High cost of ceramic proppants makes it the least preferred proppants when oil prices crash

Ceramic proppants is an engineered product manufactured from sintered bauxite, kaolin, and magnesium silicate or mixtures of bauxite and kaolin using energy-intensive manufacturing process. This manufacturing process is complex as the proppants must have uniform size, shape, sphericity, and roundness to yield higher porosity and permeability of the proppants bed. Ceramic proppants has higher strength and crush resistance than frac sand, as it can withstand closure stresses up to 20,000 psi. Ceramic proppants is costlier than uncoated or resin-coated proppants as it is an engineered product wita more complex manufacturing process. The price of ceramic proppants is about 50% higher than that of frac sand.

Opportunity: Exploration of unconventional oil and gas reserves increasing

Countries such as the US, Canada, China, India, and Russia have been witnessing high demand for oil and gas since the last decade. Limited availability of conventional oil and gas, along with their high level of carbon emission, has led to the growth in the production of unconventional oil and gas such as shale oil & gas, tight oil & gas, and coalbed methane. Countries such as Brazil, Algeria, South Africa, Argentina, Mexico, and Australia have large proven reserves of unconventional oil and gas, which will significantly increase the demand for proppants in the future. However, the increasing protest from local communities and environmental organizations in some of the countries are a concern. Some countries are even banning hydraulic fracking.

Challenges: Water availability and contamination concerns

Hydraulic fracturing is the major application of proppants, and 98% to 99.5% of the fracturing fluid used for hydraulic fracturing is water. Companies usually use a variety of water sources such as rivers, lakes, groundwater, discharge water from industrial or city wastewater treatment plants, and re-used fracturing water. Temporary pipelines or trucks are used to carry the water to drilling locations. Companies attempt to use a mix of water sources depending on the region and the proximity of water sources. On average, 3 million gallons of water is required per well for hydraulic fracturing. However, this quantity varies widely across regions. It also depends on how many stages of fracturing are conducted at a well. There are two distinct problems with regard to water use in hydraulic fracturing. First, the limited availability of water for hydraulic fracturing, and second, concerns related to water contamination due to fracturing chemicals.

APAC estimated to be the fastest-growing market for proppants market

The domestic demand for natural gas will increase in major APAC economies due to the development of shale gas in the region. The extraction of shale gas is likely to enhance the region’s energy security by allowing the countries to become less dependent on external sources. However, the development of shale gas is at the initial stage. Countries are extracting shale gas using advanced technology from their shale gas reserves, majorly driven by China.

The extraction of shale gas is risky and entails a higher cost than the production of conventional gas. The extraction process is supposed to carry out in a sustainable, cost-effective, and socially responsive way. The APAC is the largest coalbed methane producing region in the world. China, India, Australia, Japan, and Indonesia, among other countries in the region, have high coalbed methane reserves. Coalbed methane production in the region is driven by the limited conventional natural gas reserves and high natural gas prices in the international market. Australia is the leading country in the region in terms of high commercial production of coalbed methane, as it has the world's largest coalbed methane reserves. These countries also have significant shale gas reserves. China is expected to have the largest shale gas reserves worldwide. The country has a large availability of raw materials, such as bauxite, alumina, and kaolin, from which ceramic proppants are manufactured. Hence, these proppants will hold a major share in the overall proppants market. The APAC proppants market is expected to be driven by China.

The study involved four major activities for estimating the current size of the global proppants market. Exhaustive secondary research was carried out to collect information on the market, the peer product market, and the parent product group market. The next step was to validate these findings, assumptions, and sizes with the industry experts across the value chain of proppants through primary research. Both the top-down and bottom-up approaches were employed to estimate the overall size of the proppants market. After that, market breakdown and data triangulation procedures were used to determine the size of different segments and sub-segments of the market.

Secondary Research

In the secondary research process, various secondary sources such as Hoovers, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, and Dun & Bradstreet, edana.org, associations were referred to identify and collect information for this study. These secondary sources included annual reports, press releases & investor presentations of companies, white papers, certified publications, articles by recognized authors, gold standard & silver standard websites, regulatory bodies, trade directories, and databases.

Primary Research

The proppants market comprises several stakeholders such as raw material suppliers, technology developers, proppants companies, and regulatory organizations in the supply chain.

Market Size Estimation

Both top-down and bottom-up approaches were used to estimate and validate the size of the global proppants market and to estimate the sizes of various other dependent submarkets. The research methodology used to estimate the market size includes the following:

  • The key players in the industry were identified through extensive secondary research.
  • The supply chain of the industry and market size, in terms of value, were determined through primary and secondary research.
  • All percentage shares split, and breakdowns were determined using secondary sources and verified through primary sources.
  • All possible parameters that affect the markets covered in this research study were accounted for, viewed in extensive detail, verified through primary research, and analyzed to obtain the final quantitative and qualitative data.
  • The research includes the study of reports, reviews, and newsletters of key industry players along with extensive interviews with key officials, such as directors and marketing executives.

Bottom-up Approach

Proppants Market Size, Bottom-up Approach

Top-Down Approach

Proppants Market Size, Top-Down Approach

The overall market size has been used in the top-down approach to estimate the sizes of other individual markets mentioned in the segmentation through percentage splits derived using secondary and primary sources.

For calculating each type of specific market segment, the size of the most appropriate immediate parent market has been considered for implementing the top-down approach. The bottom-up approach has also been implemented for data extracted from secondary research to validate the market sizes, in terms of value and volume, obtained for each segment.
The exact values of the overall parent and individual markets have been determined and confirmed through the data triangulation procedure and validation of data through primary interviews. The data triangulation procedure implemented for this study is explained in the next section.

Data Triangulation

After arriving at the total market size through the estimation process explained above, the overall market was split into several segments and sub-segments. The data triangulation and market breakdown procedures were employed, wherever applicable, to complete the overall market size estimation process and arrive at the exact statistics for all segments and sub-segments. The data was triangulated by studying various factors and trends from both the demand and supply sides. In addition, the market size was validated by using both the top-down and bottom-up approaches. Then, it was verified through primary interviews. Hence, for every data segment, there are three sources—top-down approach, bottom-up approach, and expert interviews. The data were assumed to be correct when the values arrived at from the three sources matched.
