North America is the largest market for oilfield stimulation chemicals, globally. There has been rapid exploration of shale gas and oil reserves in North America.
This has brought about significant changes in the specialty oilfield chemicals market in the recent past. Moreover, current advances in horizontal drilling, hydraulic fracking, availability of water for fracking, and mineral rights licensing are contributing to the rapid development of shale gas and oil reserves in the North American region.
Friction reducers are the fastest-growing type of chemical in the oilfield stimulation chemicals market.
