The global well cementing market size stood at USD 8.82 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 16.63 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 8.3% during the forecast period.

The economic prosperity of any country depends upon its energy policies and availability of natural resources. Currently, more than half of the energy demand meet by hydrocarbons, which indicates its significance in the international energy market. The extensive economic growth in different industry verticals resulted in increased consumption of oil and gas. Several companies are massively investing in exploration and production activities to compensate for the unwavering consumption of hydrocarbons. The national and state-owned oil companies are enormously investing in drilling activities. Well cementing is the most important part of the completion and workover operation while drilling to offer firm structure to the well casing and restrict fluid movement from the reservoir to the wellbore. Cementing involves a mixture of cement, water, and chemical additives which are pumped into the wellbore through the casing and fills the gap between casing the wellbore. A well cementing is bifurcated into primary and remedial cementing. The primary objective of primary cementing is to hold the casing while remedial cementing requires only if there is any fault or overhaul in primary cementing. An effective cementing operation offers several advantages such as enhances the durability of the well and economical production of hydrocarbon. Furthermore, it helps to prevent blowouts and protect the casing from corrosion. Hence, cementing assists in carrying out the production of oil and gas economically and ensures minimum hazards to the environment.

Oil & gas continues to dominate the global energy outlook. The leading conglomerate around the world and government entities are consistently investing in the exploration and production of hydrocarbon to meet the increasing demand for oil and gas. Drilling is a primary activity for the extraction of hydrocarbon in which casing plays an important role in zonal isolation between groundwater and oil and gas. The casing should be strong enough to withstand stresses while drilling that can be avoided by providing wellbore stability. Well cementing ensures the stability of the well by supporting the borehole walls and protect casing against corrosion and erosion. Cementing can be done in two ways, i.e. Primary Cementing and Remedial Cementing. Primary cementing is a quintessential part of providing zonal isolation. If zonal isolation is achieved effectively, the future life of the well, safety, government regulations, other requirements would be met during the life of the well. Remedial cementing is used to rectify and correct any problems associated with primary cementing.
