Global Frac Sand Market Outlook

The global frac sand market size reached a value of almost USD 7.2 billion in the year 2019. The market is further expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.5% between 2020 and 2025 to reach a value of almost USD 11.1 billion by 2025.

The global frac sand market is driven by the flourishing oil and gas industry. Currently, North America is the leading regional market across the globe. On account of the continuous increase in the demand for petroleum and gas, the industry is witnessing a considerable rise in the number of oil exploration activities across the world.

 

Properties and Applications

Frac sand is referred to as a naturally occurring type of crystalline silica that is extracted from pure sandstone. The product is used as a proppant in the process of hydraulic fracturing, variously known as fracking, used widely by oil and gas companies to extricate petroleum, natural gas, and related materials through drilling rock or land, known as shale, with a pressurized mixture. It is uniform, round, and has a small grain size, which allows natural fluids to pass through them. It holds an edge over other variants of sand due to its different minerals and rock types, which are less durable than quartz.

The global frac sand market is segmented on the basis of type into: 

  • White Sand 
  • Brown Sand
  • Others

Among all of these, white sand is the most preferred segment, displaying a clear dominance in the industry.

On the basis of application, the industry is divided into:

  • Oil Exploration
  • Natural Gas Exploration
  • Others

The report also covers the regional markets of frac sand like North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East and Africa.

 

Market Analysis

The global frac sand market is driven by the rapid growth within the oil and gas industry. In addition to this, unconventional methods such as shale fracturing are largely being adopted to extract oil and gas in a more effective manner, thereby, driving the growth as it is an essential part of the hydraulic fracturing process. Furthermore, manufacturers are constantly involved in research and development (R&D) activities to introduce efficient and high-quality frac sand. For example, manufacturers have fine-mesh frac sand, which helps increase the flow of the fluid while it is being released from the shale. It is cost-effective as opposed to resin-coated and ceramic proppants, which is providing impetus to the growth of the market.

 

Competitive Landscape

The report gives a detailed analysis of the following key players in the global frac sand market, covering their competitive landscape, capacity, and latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, and investments, expansions of capacity, and plant turnarounds:
