Offshore Oil & Gas Rig Market 2018-2027: Regional Analysis and Forecast | Techsci Research

According to the 2017-2027 forecast by TechSci Research, the global offshore oil and gas rig market will experience a CAGR of 5.69% and reach a value of USD22522.64 million by 2027. This growth is driven by the increasing demand for oil and gas due to robust economic activities and the growth of various industries such as automotive, construction, and manufacturing worldwide.

To explore, drill, and develop oil and gas fields, exploration and production operators rely on the oilfield services industry for assets, labor, technology, and project management services. Market players are investing heavily in research and development activities to find innovative solutions to make oil exploration activities profitable, which is expected to provide lucrative growth opportunities for the industry in the next five years.

The cost of setting up a rig and drilling wells is significant, which is why organizations are hesitant to spend resources in an ineffective location. However, the introduction of 3-D seismic imaging technology has revolutionized oil exploration activities. This technology uses an energy source to send sound waves deep through the earth's surface and geophones placed on the surface to receive the noises that bounce back up, which are then transferred to recorder trucks. The data obtained is used to create a 3-D structure of the contents inside the surface, allowing engineers and geophysicists to make informed decisions.

Advancements in different offshore drilling procedures and techniques are also expected to positively impact market demand. However, the global offshore oil and gas rig market growth may be hindered by unstable oil prices and high operational costs during the forecast period.
