U.S. Zonal Isolation Market Size, By Application, 2013-2024 (USD Million)
Based on technology, mechanical and chemical are the two segments driving the zonal isolation market. These mechanical and chemical techniques have been used to prevent the cross flow of water, oil, and gas between formations. Mechanical technology is used to prevent the passage of gas & oil between different geographical layers. This segment is further sub-segmented into perforated lines, sliding sleeves, plug, and packers. Mechanical technology market is projected to witness substantial gains in the coming seven years. On the other hand, the chemical technology is anticipated to register a CAGR of 6% over the period of 2016-2024. The chemical technology is used to separate or isolate gas and water producing zone in the horizontal wells. This segment is further segmented into three chemicals, including polyacrylamide, monomer, and plastic.
