 Solid control is a process to separate the solid fragments present in the drilling fluids that are crushed by the drill bits and carry them out of the will surface. Generally, a solid control process is done in five stages or layers namely the mud tank, shale shaker, vacuum degasser, desander, desilter, and centrifuge. In each of these different stages, fragments of different sizes varying from 75 micrometer to 44 micrometer are separated from the drilling fluid. The solid control equipment play a vital role in the drilling industry as they prevent the solid waste from mixing with the drilling fluid. The solid control equipment also has a great significance in the waste management during the drilling activities.

COVID-19 scenario analysis:

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the global solid control equipment market to a great extent.

  • Due to the nationwide lockdowns imposed by the governments to contain the virus, the demand for crude oil and petroleum decreased drastically. As a result the major oil and gas companies were forced to reduce the drilling activities, which caused a reduction demand for solid control equipment in the market.
  • Moreover, several companies had to reduce their drilling activities due to the lack of workforce caused by the stringent regulations on national and international transport. This has also affected the global solid control equipment market to a great extent.

Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends , Drivers and Impact Analysis

The major factor that drives the growth of the solid control equipment market is the rise in demand for efficient and environment friendly drilling processes. The solid control equipment not only helps in West control during the drilling process but also reduces the overall cost of drilling and minimizes the applications of synthetic drilling fluids. On the other hand, with the increase in global population, there is a rise in demand for drinking water around the world, which also plays a major role in increasing the number of drilling activities. As a result, the major companies are concentrating on innovations to introduce more efficient solid control equipment, which is expected to boost the growth of the global market during the forecast period. However, the high cost of capital for incorporating solid control equipment is anticipated to hinder the growth of the market.

The market in the North America region holds a significant share of the global solid control equipment market due to the increase in number of offshore drilling activities and explorations by the developed nations
