"Global Proppants Market 2015-2019" Published.

[USPRwire, Mon Sep 14 2015] Proppants are small-sized particles used to prevent the closing of fissures and fractures in a shale rock once it has been hydro-fractured. Two popular types of proppants are grains of silica sand (raw or resin-coated) and man-made (engineered) based on ceramic. The selection criteria of proppants depend on many factors because they have to pass through high pressures, temperatures, and fluids such as water (fresh and salt), oil, and gas. The most popular proppant selection factors are size, shape, strength, and density. Typical proppant sizes are between 8 and 140 mesh, i.e., 106 um-2.36 mm. The proppant shape is important because it influence the final permeability through the fracture.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global proppants market to grow at a CAGR of 10.58% over the period 2014-2019.
