US Proppants Market
Raw Material, Supply & Consumption

As exploration and development of the vast unconventional shale gas and shale oil resources in the US continues at pace, Industrial Minerals Research brings you a detailed market report on the demand for proppants in the US and Canada.

Research will cover frac sand, ceramic and resin-coated proppant developments including supply, demand, production, processing and logistics. An entire chapter will also be dedicated to the topic of fracking in an enviroment of low energy prices, examining the effect of plummeting oil and gas prices on the demand for proppants.

Key questions this report will address include:

- What is the status and outlook of the US proppants supply sector?
- How will the plummeting oil price affect the US hydraulic fracturing market and demand for proppants?
- What is the state of the raw material feedstock supply for proppants in the US?
- How is the ceramic proppants market developing in contrast with frac sand product?
- Which companies have invested in this market and who is looking to expand?
- How and why does the US proppants market contrast with the rest of the world?
- What is the shale oil and shale gas potential in the US - can it become energy independent?
