The global offshore support vessel market was valued at $20.06 billion in 2018 and it is projected to reach $25.66 billion by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 5.04%, from 2018 to 2023. The offshore support vessel market is set to witness growth due to the ongoing offshore activities across the US, China, Brazil, and the North Sea, as well as the increasing focus on deepwater fields.
The offshore pipeline market is projected to reach $15.8 billion by 2023 at a CAGR of 6.54% from an estimated $11.5 billion in 2018. In 2018, the offshore pipeline markets in Europe were estimated to be the largest, followed by the Americas. The major factors driving the Offshore Pipeline Market include increasing demand for crude oil and natural gas, especially from the Asia Pacific region. Increasing demand for safe, economical, and reliable connectivity is expected to drive the Offshore Pipeline Market.
The intelligent completion market is projected to reach $2.16 billion by 2023, from an estimated $1.61 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 6.05% from 2018 to 2023. This growth can be attributed to the increasing focus toward the production of oil & gas wells and improved economical and operational benefits across the globe. High initial costs coupled with a lack of data processing infrastructure on the oil & gas rigs can hinder the growth of this market.
The offshore decommissioning market is projected to reach $8.76 billion by 2025, growing at a CAGR of 5.05%, from 2017 to 2025. Offshore decommissioning is plugging the oil and gas wells which are matured and are non-productive. Maturing oil and gas fields and aging infrastructure in the North Sea and Gulf of Mexico are driving the offshore decommissioning market. Low crude oil prices are other major driver for this market.
The subsea systems market is projected to grow from an estimated $15.78 billion in 2016 to $17.44 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 2.02% from 2016 to 2021. Despite steep revenue declines 2015 onwards, the global market is set to witness growth after 2018 due to the increasing production from deepwater fields. Offshore exploration and production investments in Africa and Asia-Pacific region will also boost the market growth. Increasing deepwater production and exploration activities and investments by emerging economies in offshore exploration are major factors driving the subsea system market.
The global Digital Oilfield Market is projected to grow from an estimated $24.1 billion in 2019 to $30.4 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 4.77% from 2019 to 2024. The Digital Oilfield market is set to witness growth due to the increasing focus on optimization through digitization mostly in mature fields. New technological advancements, increased need from oil and gas operator to scale up production, and increased focus on the remote management of oil field for process optimization & automation are expected to be the key factors driving the digital oilfield market.
The directional drilling services market is projected to reach $10.3 billion by 2021 from $8.3 billion in 2016, at a CAGR of 4.3% from 2016 to 2021. Directional drilling is the practice of controlling the trajectory and deviation of the well during drilling operations to meet its predetermined reservoir location or target.
