Report Highlights

The global oilfield services market is estimated to be USD 178.31 billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD 251.6 billion by 2022 during the forecast period from 2016 to 2022.  Although falling crude oil prices present a gloomy picture for the OFS industry, service companies are expected to ride out the storm with long-term contracts and mergers.

The current state of the global oil and gas industry can be termed as volatile. Events, such as the increase in unconventional resource exploration in North America, the economic slowdown in China, refusal of OPEC to cut production, etc. have led to an oversupply of oil globally, which has led to the present mismatch in supply and demand dynamics, and consequently the price decline. New exploration and production is one sector that has faced the brunt of this slump owing to the shelving of major projects by oil companies around the world.

There has been a drastic decrease in the rig count globally, and this fall has been reflected in the demand for oilfield services. North America still has the most number of rigs worldwide, followed by the Middle East. Latin America takes the third spot. There is increasing investment in the Asia-Pacific oil & gas industry, promoted actively by the governments in this region. Growing urbanization in countries like China, India, Indonesia, etc. contribute to increasing demand for oil & gas in this region. In spite of an economic slowdown in China, the major consumer of this region, the demand for oil and gas remains high. This is a positive driver for Asia-Pacific oilfield services industry. A growing interest in deepwater fields is also observed in this region. The most promising opportunities for the oilfield services industry is expected to come from Southeast Asian and East Africa. The growing interest in deepwater exploration in the aforementioned regions is expected to promote the growth of the industry.

The major restraining factor for the oilfield services industry is the volatility of oil prices. However, in the long term, the demand for oil & gas from around the world will overcome the price volatility. Environmental concerns regarding exploration and production activities, along with operational challenges especially in deep and ultra-deepwater locations are a few factors that are a cause for concern to the oilfield services industry.

Despite the fact that oil prices have plummeted, the long-term global demand for oil & gas remains substantial. The global energy demand is expected to increase by 40% from 2012 to 2040, which is a direct benefit to the oil & gas industry. The need to improve productivity from mature and new reserves, increasing demand for energy & petrochemicals, growing investments, deep-water exploration in North & Norwegian seas and technological advancements are some of the factors driving the OFS market.
