In this report, Technavio highlights the rising demand for fine mesh raw frac sand as one of the key emerging trends in the global frac sand market:
Rising demand for fine mesh raw frac sand
Fine mesh raw frac sand is a proppant used for extracting oil and natural gas and improving their flow. When compared with other proppants such as resin-coated sand and manufactured ceramics, it proves to be cost effective. The rising use of fine mesh raw frac sand as a proppant is an upcoming trend in the global frac sand market. In countries such as the US, the consumption of fine mesh raw frac sand has increased owing to technological advances and increased demand for petroleum products in the country.
“The demand for high-quality fine mesh raw frac sand will continue to increase due to long-term developments. The development of unconventional oil and natural gas reservoirs will increase the consumption of frac sand. The O&G industry is increasingly using cost-effective proppants such as fine mesh frac sand. The size varies from 40 to 100 mesh. Fine sand particles enhance the flow of oil,” says a senior analyst at Technavio for research on specialty chemicals.
