Excerpts on Market Growth Factors

  • Bentonite and attapulgite are the drilling mud additives used to control the fluid-loss and cleaning effectiveness in the drilling process. The characters such as low colloidal content, effective inhibition, shear-thinning behaviour and non-dispersed system in order to get the maximum drilling performance are helping to lead in the market.
  • The recent development of deepwater and ultra-deepwater operations will bring significant new and more technical complex to harsh conditions. In order to overcome the challenges, the biopolymer fluid viscofiers will play an important role with respect to its environment based advantage.
  • The negative impact of oil-based defoamers on the environment has been a major reason for the slow growth in this segment. So, water-based defoamers have fueled their demand in the petrochemical sector.
