The fracking (hydraulic fracturing) fluids and chemicals market is mainly driven by the increasing need to fracture the unconventional oil and gas reserves which can decrease the demand supply gap in the growing oil and gas demand to fuel the world. North America is by far the largest market for the fracking market mainly due to advanced technology available to drill and recover oil and gas from unconventional resources. The Rest Of the World is still in infancy stage, but shows a promising future especially in Asia Pacific.

Long-term growth drivers include the desire of world countries to become self-sufficient by utilizing their reserves to meet the demand. This would require increasing the recovery from the conventional or develop the unconventional oil and gas resources both of which will require fracking.
