Market Segmentation


Digital Oilfield Market Segmentation


The global digital oilfield market is expected to grow USD 28.61 billion by 2027 with a CAGR of more than 6.5% in the forecast period because of rise in oil and gas demand across the world, increase in offshore exploration and drilling activities. Additionally, the companies involved in this taking R & D very seriously to ensure better operational efficiency throughout the process because of growing competition in market.  


Based on process, this segment includes Reservoir, Production, and Drilling Optimization. Among them production is estimated to have faster growth and largest market share in the forecast period because the growing demand of oil and gas.


Based on solution, this segment includes Hardware, Software and Data Storage. Among these, hardware solution is projected to have faster growth and largest market share during the forecast period. As hardware solution includes smart well, distributed control system, wireless sensors, SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) and others and these are prime components for digital oilfield which are extensively used.


Based on region, North America region have been projected for largest market share as there is large shale oil and gas reserve, followed by Asia Pacific region which include country like China and India. For instance, company such as Halliburton is working to integrate, interpret, and act on production related information on real time basis for maximization of development.


Digital oilfields encompass variety of tools, tasks and disciplines altogether. Advanced software and data analysis procedures used to improve the profitability of oil and gas operations. The main aim of digital oilfield is to minimize the non-productive time, maximize the oilfield recovery and increase the profitability. The digital oilfield includes production optimization, operational efficiency, decision support, collaboration, data integration, the melding of operation with information technology and Internet of things. It comprises a combination of network sensors, cloud computing, advanced big data analytics, and artificial intelligence. These aspects help to understand and predict the equipment failure, maintenance, and tract of the real time-based situation of the oil and gas field. Lastly, digital oilfield is the technology which is the combination of various technologies in innovative ways to drive the productivity.
