The growth of the global oil and gas industry is the obvious reason for the soaring revenue of the exploration and production software market. Incremental investments in pipelines and refineries in the Americas, APAC, and Middle East & Africa are likely to be pivotal factors steering the global market toward growth.
Focus on Unconventional Gas Resources Drives Global Market
The market is also driven by the increasing exploration level of unconventional gas resources worldwide. In recent years, the depletion of conventional gas sources has motivated several companies to focus on unconventional sources. Extraction of unconventional gas sources requires the use of latest software and technologies for ensuring horizontal drilling. This has also reduced the carbon footprint of the oil and gas industry. Furthermore, the valuable additions to the technological advancements have driven the usage of oilfield equipment that use exploration and production software across the globe. The market’s growth is currently restricted by the fluctuating oil and gas prices worldwide.
In terms of exploration and production software types, the market has been segmented into resource valuation, risk management mapping, portfolio aggregation, seismic amplitude analysis, navigation system, performance tracking, reservoir characterization, drilling, reservoir simulation, and production. In 2015, the market was led by reservoir simulation software which accounted for approximately 20% of the global market revenue. Analysts anticipate that production software will also be a leading software segment in the global exploration and production market during the forecast period of 2016 to 2024.
North America to Lead Global Market as Investments in Exploration of Shale Gas Improve
