Region :Global | Report ID: FBI103385 | Status : Ongoing



Fluid loss additives, also widely recognized as filtrate reduction agents, are chemical additives employed to regulate fluids that move through a porous zone created in the trenching and well-operating systems. The water absorption of slurries significantly influences the nature of its design. As such, slurries which undergo water depletion can also be prone to deterioration. Fluid loss can be triggered by the removal of water from the slurry, especially when the pumping has halted and the slurry is not set yet. Loss of fluids leads to significant alterations in, viscosity,  set time, displacement of mud and low  compressive force. In addition, the loss of fluids during oil extraction contributes to monetary loss.

Environmental regulations promote the preventative measures for the damage of water body, with the implementation of environmentally friendly fluid loss control additives for drilling operations in water-based muds is one of the key factors that drive the market. However, growing demand of electric vehicles restricts crude oil consumption and hence serve as a restraint for the market. Thus electric vehicle may hamper the demand for fluid loss additives as it does not require crude oil based fuels thus restraining the market.
