Global Oilfield Services Market: Trends & Opportunities
New oil and gas fields are being discovered in order to meet the escalating demand, especially from the end-user sectors such as transportation, power plants, and other industries, is the primary driver of this market, besides increasing volume of crude oil production. The report also observes that enhanced oil recovery (EOR) technique, which involves gas injection, thermal injection, and chemical injection, is revolutionizing the oil and gas sector and thereby significantly boosting the demand for oilfield services. Technological advancements have now enabled the operators to extract from sources that were inaccessible previously. For example, extraction of gas from shale and oil underneath bituminous sand was quite expensive but with new technologically advanced processes have made it economical. Moreover, these new technologies have helped in E&P activities in several aging oilfields across the globe.
The application segment of onshore oilfield services currently accounts for most of the demand. However, offshore segment is also projected for a healthy growth rate, despite being expensive, due to depleting onshore resources, which has urged operators to explore alternatives. By services, the segment of drilling contributes most of the demand, which is a reflection of increased investment in technology by the OFS companies and increasing efficiency of several drilling processes.
Global Oilfield Services Market: Regional Outlook
Currently, North America serves maximum demand for oilfield services, which is a reflection of deep-water productions in the countries of the U.S. and shale gas production in Canada. North America is expected to remain most prominent region throughout the forecast period.
