Ceramic proppant is manufactured from sintered bauxite, alumina, kaolin, and magnesium silicate.

It can withstand closure pressures up to 15,000 psi, owing to its high strength and complex molecular structure. In addition, it has a consistent size that results in improved porosity and permeability of proppant bed.

Hence, ceramic proppant is superior to other types of proppants.


Rising demand for proppant from Asia-Pacific is expected to be a key factor driving the growth of the global proppant market

Asia-Pacific is estimated to be the leading market for proppant. China is estimated to be the largest market and India is projected to be the fastest-growing market for proppant during the forecast period.

Australia is the other major country in the Asia-Pacific proppant market. These countries are expected to have large shale gas and coal bed methane reserves.

The increasing demand of proppant from the oil and gas industry for hydraulic fracturing application is expected to drive the proppant market in these countries.
