Synthetic Proppants Market Outlook - 2027

Synthetic proppant is a solid material, which is used to keep the hydraulic fracture open during treatment. Hydraulic fracture performs a major function in the gas process. Chemicals, injecting sans, and water are introduced into a well under the process. Hydraulic fracturing methods lead to the development of the proppants. Various types of proppants are available in the market, however, synthetic proppants provide enhanced performance under high-pressure conditions.


The synthetic proppants market is segmented depending on various characteristics. By product type, the market is categorized into ceramics, aluminum beads, and wintered bauxite. Ceramic proppants are produced from kaolin clay, which is furthers intered to reduce the content of the water and increase density. In addition, synthetic proppants exhibit high gravity and viscosity in fracking fluid. 

The applications covered in the study include shale gas, tight gas, cold bed methane, and others. Synthetic proppants are used widely in oil &gas resources. An increase in oil well activities to meet the sustainable demand of the oil is expected to augment the growth of the market during the forecast period. 

Region wise, North America is anticipated to be the largest market of synthetic proppants. Other emerging economies in Asia Pacific and Europe are likely to contribute toward increased demand for synthetic proppants.

COVID-19 scenario analysis

  • Rise in oil price due to the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, led to stiff competition for synthetic proppanants. In addition, easy availability of alternatives, such as inexpensive silica (frac) sand may negatively impact the market demand.
  • As the oil price is rising, the extraction of hydrocarbon becomes more expensive, which lead to temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities.
  • However, for long term, frac sand proppant loading may not be a suitable choice, as high-pressure, high-temperature wells are not suited for using frac sand. This may positively impact the demand for synthetic proppanants.

Top impacting factors: market scenario analysis, trends, drivers, and impact analysis:

The large-scale demand for synthetic proppants products such as shale gas and frac sand due to their low price is the major driver of the global market. Proppants play a crucial role in the extraction process by keeping the supply of natural gases and oil unhindered. Furthermore, synthetic proppants have witnessed high demand in the transportation and power generation industries. It is further expected to witness high demand for frac sand for the fracking process during the forecast period. Ceramic synthetic proppants exhibit high-pressure and high-temperature resistance property, thus are used widely in transports. The major trend of the synthetic proppants market is the incorporation of eco-friendly processes in oil wells, whereas the restraint of the market includes reduction in operating expenses.
