Drilling Bits Market Overview

Drilling Bits Market Size was valued at USD 1795 Million in 2022. The Drilling Bits Market industry is projected to grow from USD 1885 Million in 2023 to USD 2816.25 Million by 2030, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5% during the forecast period (2023 - 2030). 

Drilling Bits Market Overview

Source: Secondary Research, Primary Research, MRFR Database and Analyst Review

The Drilling Bits Market size is expected to grow at a rapid speed driven by new manufacturing technology and the increasing use of new materials in the Drilling Bits Industry. Drilling bits are used to drill and make holes for oil and gas extraction in oil and gas operations. Drilling bits are revolving devices composed of the hardest materials with a sharp texture that are used to cut into rocks and sediments. The drilling bits' primary function is to grind, chop, scrape, and crush the rock at the well's bottom. With new manufacturing technologies and the increased usage of novel materials in the drill bit manufacturing process, the drill bit business is fast changing. Drilling bits are the key tool for oil and gas extraction procedures, as oil and gas is the backbone of the global energy business.

As a result of the increased usage of novel materials in the drill bit manufacturing process, the drill bit business is fast changing. The Drilling Bits Market is predicted to rise significantly over the forecast period, owing to increased oil and gas exploration activity in recent years.

COVID 19 Analysis

The power tools sector is primarily driven by increasing financial incentives as well as legislative assistance from governments across the globe. The ongoing COVID-19 epidemic has a detrimental impact on the current drilling bit demand. In the United States, China, Germany, South Korea, and several other countries, most projects in various end-use industries were postponed. These companies are also experiencing short-term operational challenges due to supply chain constraints, such as factory inaccessibility due to the COVID-19 epidemic. For example, oil businesses have been forced to operate at a reduced capacity due to supply chain disruptions, which have resulted in raw material delays or non-arrival, disrupted cash flows, and increased absenteeism among production line workers. Companies in the oil and gas business are facing several issues as a result of the drop in oil prices following the COVID-19 outbreak. Because of travel restrictions and the general economic slowdown caused by COVID-19 mitigation efforts, petroleum consumption in the United States has dropped to its lowest level in decades.

However, now situations are normal, the Lockdowns being removed the Drilling Bits Market Growth are expected to rise which was earlier affected by the pandemic.

Competitive Landscape

The Drilling Bit Industry has a moderate level of consolidation. The Drilling Bit Market Share is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.27% during the forecast period ending in 2030. The emergence of the key market players is important to help the market grow and reach the predicted figures by the end of the forecast period in 2030. The key markets players have been recognized under the head of the global market competition owing to the recent developments that have been undertaken by them are as follows:

  • Halliburton Company (U.S.)

  • ESCO Corporation (U.S)

  • Atlas Copco (Sweden)

  • Baker Hughes Inc. (U.S)

  • Changzhou Great Drilling Bits Co. Ltd.¬†(China)

  • Irwin Industrial Tool Company (U.S.)

  • New Tech Drilling Products LLC¬† (Russia)

  • National Oil well Varco Inc (U.S.)

  • Scientific Drilling International Inc (U.S.)

  • King dream Public Limited Company (China)

  • Varel International, Inc (U.S.)

  • Torquato Drilling Accessories, Inc. (U.S.)

  • Ulterra Drilling Technologies (U.S)

Recent Developments:

In September 2017, Halliburton has launched GeoTech HE, a robust drill bit that incorporates new features and materials to deliver enhanced performance and increased reliability in high energy drilling systems characterized by very high weight-on-bit and drilling torque.

In April 2017, BP Oman and Modus Oman Drilling Systems signing a two year supply contract of Modus ALMAS PDC drill bits for BP Oman. The signing marks the outcome of 6 months of successful field trials and outstanding performance of ALMAS PDC drill bits with BP Oman.

In July 2016, American Securities LLC, a leading U.S. private equity firm, Completes Acquisition of Ulterra Drilling Technologies, L.P. Ulterra is a leading manufacturer of polycrystalline diamond compact ("PDC") drill bits for the oil and gas industry. The Company was owned by ESCO Corporation.

In april 2023, Sandvik Mining and Rock Solutions is planning to introduce the new Sandvik RR340 single seal roller bearing rotary drill bit. With it, customers can achieve 45 percent longer service life compared to standard air bearing bits, as well as lower total drilling costs.

Market Dynamics


Globally expanding energy consumption has resulted in a rapid expansion in offshore drilling activities to meet that demand, which has given the drilling bits industry a considerable boost. Furthermore, fresh oil reserve finds will increase Market Growth and Market Value. The drilling bit market is predicted to benefit from increased initiatives and funding for effective product development processes to reduce replacement cost and time, as well as a longer life cycle. Drilling bits are predicted to rise significantly throughout the projection period, because of increased oil and gas exploration activity in recent years.


Environmental dangers and rigorous government drilling regulations, as well as a growing focus on renewable energy, may restraint the industry Drilling Bits Market Size. The Drilling Bits Market Size is projected to be restrained by strict government rules governing onshore drilling activity. High manufacturing costs, combined with variable raw material prices, are a major stumbling block to the global oilfield Drilling Bits Market Share. Other factors expected to stifle expansion of the worldwide oilfield drilling bits market over the forecast period include a drop in crude oil prices and strict government restrictions aimed at reducing carbon emissions.

Technology Analysis

With new manufacturing technologies and the increased usage of novel materials in the drilling bit production process, the drilling bit business is fast changing. Drilling bits are the essential instrument for oil and gas extraction procedures, as oil and gas are the backbones of the global energy business. However, it is expected that the adoption of refined and chemical products, which has been hampered by industrial shutdowns and flight cancellations, would gradually rebound. Moreover, despite a gradual rebound in oil prices and reduced oil demand, high spending in this sector is expected to drive up demand for diverse types of drill bits used in oil exploration. Due to the existence of various major and medium players active in regional markets, the global drilling bits market looks to be extremely fragmented and competitive. Product Launch, Agreement & Partnership, Acquisition, and Expansion are some of the important tactics identified through an examination of current developments of the leading companies during the forecast period ending.
