The global digital oilfield solutions market is projected to attain a valuation of US$39.63 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach US$65.4 billion by 2033, trailing a CAGR of 5.1% during the forecast period.
The rising need to maximise the production capacity from mature wells and the surging return on investment (RoI) in the oil and gas industry is anticipated to propel sales in this market. In addition, the urgent need to lower the capital and operating expenses subject to the utilisation of smart systems and digitalised solutions is likely to drive the market.
Ongoing advancements in data collection, mobility, and analysis platforms are set to improve the overall performance and management of oil and gas platforms. Further, the rapid shift of countries toward devising a robust economic well recovery process, coupled with the declining production of oil and gas from conventional wells, might also affect the market positively.
Future Market Insights predict a comparison and review study for the dynamics and trends of the digital oilfield solutions market, which is primarily impacted by ongoing developments in data collecting, mobility, and analytic platforms. These are further expected to improve the overall performance and management of oil and gas platforms.
The market might benefit from the change in growth rates that occurs in numerous nations affected by the development of a strong economic growth outlook paired with growth impacted by oil and gas output from conventional wells.
According to Future Market Insights analysis, the change in BPS values observed in the market for digital oilfield solutions for the current estimation for the first half of 2023 as compared to the projected one for the same period is expected to be at a 17-unit increase. In comparison to H1-2022, the market is predicted to rise by 40 basis points in H1-2023 as per the current estimates.
The oil and gas sector had a period of tremendous expansion, notably in the field of deep-sea exploration and production technologies, which is one of the main justifications for this change in growth rate. Furthermore, many oil companies are attempting to boost output and enhance recovery. Further use of cutting-edge technologies like AI, ML, IoT, and automation in the oil and gas sector is anticipated to accelerate growth rates.
There are still significant barriers preventing industry expansion, including lengthy execution times, inefficient workflows, and change management at all levels. Additionally, because of continuous geopolitical concerns, changes in the price of crude oil and a shift toward sustainability are the main market restraints.
Why are companies increasing their investments in digital oilfield solutions?
Digital oilfield solutions can enhance the operational performance and decision-making process, thereby improving the RoI. It can also reduce the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and downtime, as well as bolster the productivity of operations. Therefore, the oil and gas industry worldwide is expected to develop novel plans to increase their investments in digital technologies to double their cost savings.
Most of the companies in this industry are likely to look for solutions to reduce non-productive time, aid recovery rates, and cut down the cost-per-barrel for surging returns. In December 2021, for instance, Baker Hughes, CEO Lorenzo Simonelli, stated at the World Petroleum Congress that the oil and gas industry is yet to realise the full potential of digitisation for achieving better efficiency. He also declared that the next generation of productivity is anticipated to come from connected smart equipment featuring digitalisation for reducing non-productive time.
The development of such technologies in the forthcoming years is projected to accelerate growth and open doors to new opportunities for key players.
Why is the US digital oilfield solutions market exhibiting exponential growth?
The ongoing upgradation of the existing technological solutions to manage and optimise oil and gas operations is set to spur the market in the United States in the assessment period. As per FMI, North America’s digital oilfield solutions market is expected to account for around 25.6% of the share in 2023. The market in this region is expected to thrive at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period.
The rising domestic production and the increasing number of oilfield discoveries are expected to transform the business landscape in the United States. On the other hand, many companies are refurbishing numerous oil and gas platforms in the offshore sector by integrating machine learning and AI solutions, which might also propel the demand for digital oilfield solutions in this country.
The high demand for energy owing to a paradigm shift toward technologically advanced solutions is estimated to drive the segment. In January 2020, Baker Hughes, one of the world’s largest oil field services companies, for instance, stated that the average rig count in the United States was 804 in December 2019. This number is likely to surge in the upcoming years, thereby bolstering the market.
How is the United Kingdom digital oilfield solutions market faring?
The surging numbers of new field development and exploration activities are projected to create growth opportunities in the United Kingdom over the forecast period. Also, the demand for digital oilfield solutions in the United Kingdom is expected to rise with a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period. Western Europe’s digital oilfield solutions market is predicted to account for around 23.2% of the share in 2023, estimates FMI.
According to the United Kingdom government, in 2020, the country’s refineries took receipt of 8.6 million t of crude oil produced from the United Kingdom Continental Shelf (UKCS), which helped in meeting 18% of refinery demand. Hence, the rising production of crude oil in this country is anticipated to drive the demand for digital oilfield solutions in the future.
What is the demand outlook for China’s digital oilfield solutions market?
The ongoing development of smart oil fields to optimise the overall operation and management is likely to propel the market in China. The market in this region is expected to capture a CAGR of 5% during the forecast period. South East Asia (SEA) & Pacific digital oilfield solutions market is projected to generate about 12% of the share in 2023, predicts FMI.
In October 2021, for instance, China National Offshore Oil Corp, one of the largest national oil companies in the country, started operating Qinhuangdao 32-6 smart oilfield. It is going to help to make offshore gas and oil production intelligent and digital through AI, big data, IoT, and cloud computing. At the same time, it could also reduce maintenance costs by 5-10% and raise production efficiency by 30%. Such industry developments by leading players are estimated to push the demand for digital oilfield solutions in China.
The market for digital oilfield solutions is characterised by intense competition, as notable industry players are making significant investments to enhance their manufacturing capabilities. The key industry players working in the market are ABB, Emerson Electric Co., Rockwell Automation, Inc., General Electric, Siemens AG, Schneider Electric, Eaton, and Honeywell International, Inc.
