Market Overview:

The global hybrid frac plug market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for oil and gas across the globe. Additionally, the increasing adoption of fracking technology for shale gas production is also contributing to the growth of this market. The global hybrid frac plug market can be segmented on the basis of type, application, and region. On the basis of type, it can be divided into 4.5 inches, 5 inches, 5.5 inches, and others segments.

Global Hybrid Frac Plug Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A Hybrid Frac Plug is a device that is inserted into a wellbore to temporarily stop the flow of oil and gas. It can also be used to control the pressure in the well during hydraulic fracturing operations.

4.5 inches:

4.5 inches is the measurement of length and it's used for plugging of Hybrid Frac Plug (HFP) in wellbore during drilling operations. It is also known as “frac plug” or “frac shoe” and it can be categorized into two types - standard and premium.

5.0 inches:

5.0 inches is the standard length for hybrid frac plug. It’s a combination of three different types of plugs that are designed to fit into wells with varying dimensions. The most common use of these plugs is in wellbores where the walls have been perforated at regular intervals and then they are cemented using a special cement known as Hybrid Cement (HC).

The 5-inch hybrid frac plug has an external thread on one end.

Application Insights:

The global demand for shale gas is expected to rise over the coming years, which in turn will drive the growth of the global hybrid frac plug market. The horizontal well segment dominated the overall application segment accounting for a share of 60.1% in 2017 owing to its ability to extract large volumes of oil and gas with low costs per unit volume as compared to vertical wells.

The growing use of these plugs during hydraulic fracturing operations has led to an increase in their demand from horizontal wells across various regions including North America and Asia Pacific. In addition, technological advancements such as implementation of advanced materials have further driven their adoption across all types of applications including vertical and horizontal wells.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global hybridfrac plug market in 2017. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. Increasing shale gas exploration activities and development of unconventional resources, such as tight oil and tar sands, are anticipated to drive product demand in this region. Furthermore, technological advancements related to hydraulic fracturing have led to an increase in production of unconventional hydrocarbon reserves which includes shale gas and tight oil deposits across North America thus driving regional market growth.

Asia Pacific is estimated to be the fastest-growing regional segment over the forecast period owing high investments made by various governments for developing natural gas resources from coal bed methane (CBM) wells thereby increasing government subsidies on CBM technology leading towards increased adoption rate for hydraulic fracking coupled with horizontal well drilling techniques resulting into increased demand for hybridfrac plugs within Asia Pacific region.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for oil and gas due to population growth and industrialization
  • Rising investments in exploration and production activities of oil and gas
  • Technological advancements in drilling and completion techniques
  • Stringent environmental regulations for hydraulic fracturing operations
  • Growing popularity of hybrid frac plugs as a cost-effective alternative to conventional plugs
