The use of bentonite for drilling purposes is one of the major factors propelling market growth. However, factors such as competition from organic binders will hamper market growth.

The increasing consumption of bentonite for drilling purposes will drive the growth prospects for the global bentonite market in the forthcoming years. One of the major factors responsible for the growing demand for bentonite is the increasing technological advancements in drilling technologies, which revolutionizes the oil and gas industry and enables access to the most remote of locations, unconventional formations, deep-water regions, and even the Arctic. Also, since bentonite facilitates drilling of new reservoirs, the growing adoption of lateral drilling techniques will boost the demand for bentonite.
