Global Dissolvable Frac Plugs Market, By Material Type (Magnesium Alloys, Poly Glycolic Acid), By W

Published Date: | Report Code : EP1958377


The Dissolvable Frac Plugs are generally designed for multi-stage applications and have a proprietary blend of 100% dissolvable metal materials. They usually offer a predictable high-pressure service life and better control over the degradation rate.

Segment Analysis

The global dissolvable frac plugs market is segmented on the basis of material type, well type and sales channel.

On the basis of material type, it is segmented into Mg (Magnesium) alloys and PGA (Polyglycolic Acid). Mg alloys are the materials of which is generally opted for dissolvable frac plugs, owing to their properties, such as reliable dissolution rate at different temperatures and pressure brine, high toughness, strength, and hardness.

Based on well type, it is segmented on the basis of horizontal well and vertical well. Horizontal wells are majorly used for drilling extended reach and long lateral areas where vertical wells are not of worth. A horizontal well makes use of a large number of frac plugs and balls, which leads to the optimum gas production from wells. Whereas in the case of vertical wells, a very small amount of gas can be extracted as compared to horizontal well.

On the basis of the sales channel, it is segmented into a direct sales channel and distributor sales channel. The direct sales are more dominant as the market is in the nascent stage and is not being widely distributed at present and hence, major companies are generally selling dissolvable frac plugs directly to customers.

Key Factors Impacting Market Growth:
    • They provide ample benefits such as elimination of the cost and mill-out time, easy cleaning of    the debris with no 
      bottom hole assembly issues, reduced well complexities, omitted coiled  tubing from the operation, and reduced flow 
      back challenges.
    • Increase in the demand and production of oil & gas
