The water-based fluid system segment led the market in 2018 and is expected to continue its market dominance during the forecast period. Water-based fluid systems are suitable for onshore and offshore drilling activities. These fluids are cost-effective and eco-friendly compared with the other types of fluids. The discharge policies for water-based fluids are also not very stringent across the world as they contain less toxic chemicals. These factors are driving the water-based fluid system market.

North America: Dominate the drilling and completion fluids market During Forecast Period

The North American region is estimated to be the fastest growing market for drilling and completion fluids during the forecast period. The North American Drilling and Completion Fluids Industry is mainly driven by the rise in shale gas exploration and increase in drilling activity for oil and gas. The onshore activities have improved with the exploration of vast shale gas reserves in the North American region. Also, the governments in North America have formed policies and regulations for the prevention of the degradation of the environment.

The drilling and completion fluids market are segmented by application into onshore and offshore. The onshore segment accounted for the largest share of the market in 2018. The number of wells drilled onshore drastically increased in 2018 compared with 2017. The onshore application segment is expected to dominate the market as the majority of global oil & gas reserves are present onshore. The increasing use of drilling fluids in the hard rock drilling process is expected to boost the onshore applications market for drilling and completion fluids.
