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 behavior and non-dispersed system in order to get the maximum drilling performance is helping to lead in the market.
Recent development of deep water and ultra-deep water 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 environmental 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.
