Static and Rotating Equipment (Oil and Gas) Market: Snapshot
The global static and rotating equipment market is expected to witness a swift growth on account of the advancements in infrastructure in the oil and gas midstream sector. Moreover, new refineries are being constructed and existing ones are revamped, thus pushing the demand for these equipment further. According to the expert panel of analysts at Transparency Market Research (TMR), the global static and rotating equipment market which stood at US$26.5 bn in 2013, is predicted to scale up to US$35.8 bn by 2022, exhibiting a 3.7% CAGR from 2014 to 2022. The production of oil from unconventional sources is expected to be one of the key factors behind the growth of this market during the forecast period.
U.S. Market to Benefit from Shale Gas Boom
The upstream, downstream, and midstream activities in the oil and gas industry are heavily dependent on the quality and reliability of static and rotating equipment. This is expected to ensure an assured growth of the market. This market’s growth is directly linked to the development of the oil and gas sector. As such, the recent shale gas boom has greatly benefited the static and rotating equipment market in the U.S.
In addition to the U.S., developing nations such as Argentina and China are also expected to take advantage of the shale gas boom. Moreover, the rapid development of LNG infrastructure in the Middle East and Asia Pacific will create a heightened demand for these equipment. There has been considerable increase of investments in the refining sector of Asia Pacific and the Middle East, which is encouraging the growth of the static and rotating market in these regions.
Oil and Gas Static Equipment to Lead in Market
On the basis of product, the global static and rotating equipment market is broadly classified into oil and gas static equipment and oil and gas rotating equipment. Static oil and gas equipment, which comprise boilers, heat exchangers, air cooled, valves, and shell and tube, is the leading segment, and accounted for 53.79% of the market in 2013. Valves are predicted to have the highest demand within the static equipment segment. Turbines, compressors, and pumps fall under the rotating equipment category.
Upstream Sector to be Most Affected by Hostile Macroeconomic Factors
There also exists some challenges, which the manufacturers of static and rotating equipment industry face. Manufacturers of static and rotating equipment are faced with constant pricing pressure and this poses a challenge. The hostile macroeconomic factors are thus, one of the major factors, restricting the growth of the static and rotating equipment market. It is expected that there will be a decline in the expenditure on exploration and production activities as oil and gas manufacturers are struggling to keep minimal margins in accordance to the current price regime. While the upstream sector is expected to suffer most by these macroeconomic factors, the midstream sector in contrast will witness strong investments, since natural gas continues to be of importance in the global energy mix.
Manufacturers to Aim at Cost Cutting Measures
The sluggish demand for static and rotating equipment has resulted in pricing pressures for manufacturers. Manufacturers are now focusing on controlling costs by adopting lean management strategies. Manufacturers are also curtailing their expenses on E&P activities. Many manufacturers are instead focusing on building up product quality and differentiating their products through strong brand identification strategies.
The downstream, midstream, and upstream operations in the oil and gas industry depends upon the quality and reliability of static and rotating equipment. Hence, these machines form an important part of oil and gas infrastructure. However, due to the recent drop in the global oil prices, expenditure on exploration and production activities is likely to reduce, which will have a negative impact on the demand for these equipment.

Overview of the global static and rotating equipment market
The global static and rotating equipment market, which stood at US$26.5 bn in 2013, is anticipated to reach US$35.8 bn by the end of 2022. The market will therefore exhibit a slow yet positive CAGR of 3.70% between 2014 and 2022. Static and rotating equipment are manufactured by OEMs around the world, who also supply the same to E&P companies either directly or through EPC contractors.
The sluggish demand witnessed by the global static and rotating equipment market is primarily due to the hostile macroeconomics outlook, which further translates into pricing pressures upon manufacturers. With an increasing number of manufacturers seeking to differentiate their products amidst cut-throat competition, a greater focus is on innovative brand identification strategies and improving the product quality. The launch of new technologies allowing the production of oil from unconventional sources is also expected to amplify the demand for static and rotating equipment in the market.
Among the key regional segments, North America held the largest share in the overall market in 2013. The region is also expected to retain its position as the market leader through the forecast period. The reopening of E&P activities in the Gulf of Mexico, new oil sand projects in Canada, and privatization of the hydrocarbon sector in Mexico are the primary factors boosting the static and rotating equipment market in North America. In Europe, however, the market will exhibit sluggish growth due to the high cost of the raw materials. Asia Pacific countries are anticipated to invest in strengthening its downstream sector, while further upgrades are expected in Russian refineries. Thus, these emerging regions will also prove to be lucrative markets for static and rotating equipment manufacturers.
