Drilling Tools Market Scenario


Drilling Tools market is projected to witness ~4.21% CAGR during the forecast period.


With the development of new drilling technologies, unconventional drilling methods are witnessing a huge growth. Techniques such as horizontal drilling and vertical drilling are enabling oil companies to tap into previously unexplored resources. For all these drilling activities, drilling tools play a vital role in enabling smooth operations.


The global drilling tools market is segmented on the basis of type, which is further segmented into drill bits, drilling tubular and motors, reamers, stabilizers, drill collars, drill jars, drill swivels, and mechanical thrusters. On the basis of application, the drilling tools market is segmented into onshore and offshore. With advancement in drilling techniques, such as horizontal and vertical drilling, several onshore drilling projects are conducted throughout the world.


Key Players


The key players of the global Drilling Tools market are Schlumberger Limited, Halliburton Company, National Oilwell Varco, L.P., Weatherford International plc, Drilling Tools International, Inc., Rubicon Oilfield International Holdings, L.P., Cougar Drilling Solutions Inc., BICO Drilling Tools, Inc., Perkins Drilling Tools Inc., and Sandvik AB.


The global drilling tools market is driven by the increased onshore and drilling activities in the North America and Asia Pacific region. For instance, since 2007, the U.S. has invested several billions in onshore drilling projects for the extraction of shale oil and gas. Similarly, in China, several onshore oil drilling projects are carried out to extract shale oil. This has resulted in China being the top shale oil producer in the world. Furthermore, offshore deepwater drilling projects are executed in the North Sea and Gulf of Mexico region.  One of the other major drivers for the market is the increasing number of mature oil fields around the world. Many offshore oil production sites in the Gulf of Mexico region and the North Sea region are rapidly reaching their end of operational lifetime and new drilling operations are carried out in the region. The global drilling operations are expected to increase, once the major oilfield players resume oil drilling activity in the offshore regions.


The drilling tools market is expected to face regulatory concerns, which may hinder the growth of the market.

Global Drilling Tools Market


North America and Europe are expected to be the major regions for the global drilling tools market. As increased investment is made in onshore and offshore drilling activities to produce oil and gas, the drilling tools are expected to command a greater market share. Moreover, in the Asia Pacific region, increased investments in onshore drilling and rising demand for oil is further expected to drive the market for drilling tools.


The world consumption of oil has been steadily increasing since the past decade. Globally, oil and gas accounted for 65% of the world’s energy supply with the offshore areas of oil and gas production accounting for at least 25% of the total supply. Primarily, oil and gas are produced and brought to surface through the drilling of underground reservoirs, both onshore and offshore. Drilling tools help in oil and gas production by enabling operators to drill oil wells. During the early 19th century, drilling tools were extensively used in the Middle East and other oil production regions of the world for the commercial production of oil and natural gas. Especially, the Gulf of Mexico region and the North Sea region witnessed a steady activity of drilling in the offshore regions for the production of oil.  In the Middle East and other countries, oil wells were largely drilled onshore as compared to offshore regions, due to the huge availability of onshore resources.
