Hydraulic fracturing is propagation of fractures through layers of rock using pressurized fracturing
fluid. This technique is primarily used in the extraction of resources from low permeability reservoirs
such as shale gas, tight gas, and unconventional liquids; which are difficult to recover through
regular drilling procedures.

 In this process fracturing fluid is used. It consists of water, proppant, chemical additives, and guar
gum. Proppant is the most integral constituent of the fracturing fluid after water. Proppant material
keeps the generated fractures propped open and helps continued oil and gas recovery.

The hydraulic fracturing market is mainly concentrated in North America; hence the demand for
proppant is largest here, many leading oil field service companies operate. Hence, proppant
production is also much bigger than rest of the world. All the big oilfield service companies are
operating in the U.S. There are several important players in North American proppant market such
as Cadre Proppants (U.S.), Momentive (U.S.), Saint Gobain Proppants (U.S.), Carbo Ceramics (U.S.),
and many other small companies in frac sand business.

Scope of the report

This report estimates the proppant market in terms of volume and value. This has been broken
down into component regions and further split into countries. This report also evaluates the
proppant production in various regions by type of the proppant.

On the basis of geography: The report is divided in regions such as Asia-Pacific, Europe, North
America; and major countries such as U.S., Canada, China, Russia, and India

 On the basis of proppant type: The report divides the proppant by types like fracturing sand, resin
coated proppants, and ceramic proppants.
