Browse through the TOC of "Africa Drilling Waste Management Market" for an analysis of industry trends and segments, with the help of various tables and figures.

The growth of the Africa drilling waste management market is attributed to the rising stringent government regulations. The increased drilling activity in the region is leading to an increased discharge of oil-based muds (OBM), which constitutes the environmental concerns regarding drilling operations. 

This is owing to the long-term impacts of these wastes, especially in the marine environment, either in the form of toxicity or the creation of anoxic conditions. OBM fluids take a longer period to degrade and the negative effects can last for decades.

One of the major challenges in this industry is the diverse nature of the wastes generated. The application of a particular technology is thus difficult to meet the environmental regulations, thereby creating operational challenges. 

However, various technological advancements in recent years have enhanced the processes of drilling waste management in Africa. In 2014, the segment in Egypt held the largest share of 26% of the African drilling waste management market. 

Egypt is also expected to be the fastest-growing segment for drilling waste management during the forecast period of 2014 to 2019.
