Drilling fluids and completion fluids are essential tools for conducting any drilling and exploration activities. They are used to avoid friction, provide lubrication, cool the wellbore, and transport rock cuttings to the surface. Every drilling activity requires drilling and completion fluids and they are used extensively across the globe. Drilling and completion fluids use different types of base fluids such as water-based systems, oil-based systems, synthetic-based systems, and other based systems. The use of drilling fluids and completion fluids base depends on the cost of the fluid, the desired performance, and environmental impact. The drilling and completion fluids market is directly depend on drilling activities carried across the globe. Recent increase in oilfield discoveries and rise in drilling activities will drive the drilling and completion fluids market over the next five years. The increasing world energy demand and rise in population are putting pressure to drill at high depths and enter deep and ultra-deep waters. These factors have been major drivers for the drilling fluids and completion fluids market.
