Global Frac Sand Market 2016-2020

Published: May 2016
No. of Pages: 64

The global frac sand market has become an integral part of the oil and gas sector due to the increasing demand for oil and gas extracted from unconventional resources. Some of the key consumers of frac sand are oil and gas companies operating in the shale formations in the US and Canada.

The players on the supply side as well as demand side engage in business by forming contracts. The expiry of some of these contracts in 2015 has created much uncertainty on the demand side. In addition, falling oil prices negatively impacted the demand for frac sand. Consumers operating in shale formations like Eagle Ford and Permian basin have reduced drilling, and as a result, there has been a continuous decline in the number of rigs.

The analysts forecast global frac sand market to grow at a CAGR of 10.29% during the period 2016-2020.
