Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Overview


The global Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Growth is expected to happen with a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 6.63% during the forecast period 2022-2030. The Offshore Drilling Rigs Industry Revenue is expected to reach up to USD 147.7 Billion within the forecast period.


Offshore Drilling rigs are the essential components required for drilling below the seabed. To extract natural gas and oil from deep below the earth, the drilling process is used. The drilling rigs are of different types. They are used for extracting, storing, and processing natural gas and petroleum. Due to a surge in the demands for crude oil and natural gas, the Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Demand is on the rise.


Offshore Drilling vessels are used for excavation and construction purposes. Moreover, the offshore drilling rigs are capable of reaching the farthest and deepest locations. These rigs are very robust and can withstand harsh environmental conditions. With an increase in the demand for crude oil and natural gas across the globe, the Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Opportunities are opening up.


COVID-19 Analysis


The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic had affected the growth of the Offshore Drilling Rigs Market negatively. The gas and oil industries were shut down which resulted in a decrease in demand for offshore drilling rigs across the world. Many gas and oil extraction projects got delayed during the pandemic which hampered the growth of this market. In the post-pandemic period, the Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Size is expected to grow steadily.

The semi-submersible drilling rigs can withstand extreme conditions and can be used at the depth of more than 3000 km.


Based on the operating depth, the Offshore Drilling Market is sub-divided into deep water, shallow water, and ultra-deepwater sectors. The ultra-deepwater sector is expected to dominate the market in the coming years. As many deepwater and ultra-deep water drilling projects are getting executed across the world, the Offshore Drilling Industry is heading towards positive growth.


In December 2021, a deepwater discovery was announced by Shell PLC in the Gulf of Mexico in December 2021. A well of 27,770 feet deep was drilled. This project is expected to attract more investments in the coming years. With more technological advancements and increasing deepwater drilling, the deepwater and ultra-deepwater sectors will show significant growth during the forecast period.


Regional Analysis


Based on the region, the Offshore Drilling Rigs Market is segmented into these regions- North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Middle East & Africa.


The Middle East & Africa region will have the fastest Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Growth owing to the presence of the large-scale reserves of offshore natural gas and oil reserves. The largest gas field in the world, the South Pars Gas Complex is located in the Persian Gulf, Middle East.


New oil reserves have been located and offshore drilling projects have been started in various countries of Africa such as Ghana, Angola, Namibia, and Nigeria. Many upcoming offshore Exploration and production activities especially in the West African region will lead to the boosting of the Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Size during the forecast period.


The Asia-Pacific region is the largest consumer of gas and oil. With an increase in population, industrialization, and economic growth, there will be a rise in the demand for oil and natural gas during the forecast period.


According to the Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Forecast, liberalization of the oil and gas sector of Mexico in South America will help in boosting the market growth.


Competitive Analysis


Adoption of new technologies, investing in Research & Development, partnerships, and business expansions are some of the strategies that are taken by the Offshore Drilling Rigs Market Key Players to have a steady growth. Companies are going for contract extensions and new agreements to increase the productivity of crude oil so that the demand supply chain can be maintained without disruption.
