Global Ceramic Proppants Market Overview:
Ceramic proppants are the solid material or sand used to keep an induced hydraulic fracture open during the fracturing treatment for the smooth and increased production of oil and gas, the proppants are injected into the reservoir to allow the release of natural gas or oil. These are made from various materials like bauxite, kaolin or clay, or a blend of two materials, etc, it is used in the oilfield and in construction of well for the production of oil and gas.
- Growing Demand for Natural Gas Across the Globe

"To quantify proppant performance, specific quality-control procedures outlined by the American Petroleum Institute (API) and the International Standards Organization (ISO) must be followed. These standard procedures must be continuously improved owing to the inconsistency between lab results and what was observed in the field. In some cases, conductivity values in the field scenario, may be less than 10% of the lab-measured values. Some factors which can cause the underperformance in the field include-Darcy or multiphase flow, fines plugging, proppant embedment, formation spalling, filter cake build-up, and gel and damage. The net effect can result in a 98% reduction in conductivity compared to the baseline conductivity."
