The global drilling tools market is expected to rise at a CAGR of 4.21% during forecast period 2022-2030. Increasing number of mature oil fields around the world is expected to drive global market.

Drilling Tools Market Scenario

The drilling tools application in the onshore and offshore drilling operations has dropped significantly due to a limited number of personnel working on drilling rigs. Rising exploration and development activities that increase the rig count and unconventional field development activities are expected to drive the drilling tools market during the forecasting year.

However, the lack of investment in the offshore sector compared to onshore, the higher cost of the drilling tools for the offshore applications is expected to decrease the market growth in the upcoming years. The drill bit market segment is expected to rise faster due to the increasing offshore and onshore drilling activities all over the world. This is expected to dominate the market during the forecasting years. The drill bit is one of the primary tools in the oil and gas drilling operations, and it is designed to cut down the underneath earth layers consisting of various rocks for the discovery and extraction of oil and gas from the earth’s crust. The tool is divided into two types based on its design: a roller cone bit and a fixed cutter bit.

Drilling Tools Market 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.

Industrial News:

June 2021:

  • In June 2021, China National Petroleum Corporation discovered a new one billion-ton super-deep oil and gas area in the Tarim Basin in Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. The discovered well is located in the Fuman Oilfield area. The main block for the crude oil production in the Tarim Oilfield. Its drilling depth reached 8,470 meters, and the highest of the test oil column hit 550 meters, marking new records for the most profound oil production and the tallest oil column in the desert area of the Tarim Basin.

The key players in such industries are NOV Inc., Halliburton Company, Schlumberger Limited, Baker Hughes Company, Weatherford International plc, etc. The drilling tools market is expected to face regulatory concerns, which may hinder the growth of the market.

Drilling Tools Market Segmentation

The global drilling tools industry 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.

Drilling Tools Market Regional Analysis

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.

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.
