DUBLIN, November 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
The "Global Oilfield Services Market 2017-2021" report has been added to Research and Markets' offering.
The report forecasts the global oilfield services market to grow at a CAGR of 3.63% during the period 2017-2021.
The report, Global Oilfield Services Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is the new-generation automated drilling rigs. The recent crude oil price slump, which started in July 2014, has led to reduced capital expenditure for exploration. The decline in crude oil price continues to shrink the profit margins of the upstream companies, thus calling for improving operational efficiencies. An important tool that can drive margins and increase operational efficiency is the use of digital technology in the upstream oil and gas industry
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the rise in drilling in unconventional areas. Unconventional oil and gas resources include shale gas, coal bed methane, gas hydrates, tight oil, oil sands, and others. These resources are costly to produce and difficult to exploit. Technological advances and operational efficiencies have driven cost reductions, thus spurring the exploitation of unconventional resources. In the US, the shale gas boom saw the rise of unconventionally produced natural gas supplies. The huge discovery of oil sands in Canada have shown unlimited opportunities for oil exploration. As the focus shifts toward natural gas, unconventional resources like coal bed methane (CBM) and underground coal gasification (UCG) have seen considerable growth.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is the decline in oil rig count. Global crude oil prices witnessed a dramatic fall in July 2014, which severely impacted the upstream segment of the oil and gas industry. This led to a reduction in drilling activities, which was reflected in the fall in rig count worldwide. Thus, the fall in crude oil prices had a severe impact on the drilling segment. The global rig count fell by 31.8% from 2015 to 2016, and by 55.5% from 2014 to 2016.
