The global wireline services market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.7% during the ongoing period 2022-2030, with a market size of USD 9.15 Billion by the end of the period. The global market growth is attributed to increasing oil production and maturing oilfields.


The report segments the wireline market into cased-hole and open-hole based on hole type. The cased-hole segment is projected to dominate the wireline service market and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2021 onwards.


The wireline services market is segmented into electric lines and slacklines based on wireline type. The electric line segment accounted for the largest market share in 2015 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. The prominence of the electric line services over the slick line services can be mainly attributed to the wide application of electric lines for well logging purposes which prove very helpful for reservoir understanding and field development activity.


Wireline Services Market Covid 19 Analysis


The outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic has been a major functional restraint for global sectors and Wireline Services Market, and the wireline services market is one of them. The global market report discusses that the outbreak has resulted in the rise of factors that are hampering the demand of the market and further challenging the ability of the key market players to maintain a proper mechanism of the supply chain functions. In addition, the rising restrictions and lockdown imposition in various places have disrupted the production and manufacturing departments of the places and market sectors. Therefore, there is a significant need for market operations to bounce back through investments, research, and global development.


The report segments the wireline service market based on applications onshore and offshore. The offshore segment is expected to grow fastest during the forecast period, owing to wireline services for good service and completion applications. Asia-Pacific is the critical market for offshore applications due to discovering new reserves in the Gulf of Thailand, Great Australian Bight, Turkmenistan, and the South China Sea.


Wireline Services Market Dynamics


Insights by Drivers


The global upstream oil and gas investments stood at approximately USD 476 billion in 2018, representing a 6% increase compared to the previous year. According to the Oil & Gas U.K. estimates, the oil and gas exploration and production companies in Europe are expected to spend about USD 265 billion between the continuous period that ends in 2027. Factors such as increasing demand for oil and natural gas and increasing investments in the upstream oil and gas sectors worldwide are expected to drive the number of exploration and production activities, thereby driving the wireline services market during the forecast period.


Insights by Restraints


However, crude oil forms a major component of the market and the prices for the dame have been highly volatile in 2018, fluctuating between USD 85 per barrel and USD 50 per barrel by the end of the year. This functional and constant volatility of oil prices remains a growing concern for the upstream industry. Hence, this is a prominent market factor that is expected to hinder the market during the forecast period that ends in 2030.


Insights by Technology Analysis


The have been a rise in the increasing exploration activities in the offshore region are expected to boost the demand for the wireline services market during the forecast period. There has been a gradual shift of the projects from onshore to offshore, shallow waters to deep waters and ultra-deep waters is an opportunity for the wireline service providers to innovate and come up with products suitable and customized to the harsh climatic conditions of offshore basins. Furthermore, as the demand for oil and gas increases, there is a need to find and produce new oil and gas reservoirs. Existing hydrocarbon reservoirs have either started to mature or have reached their decommissioning stage. This results in the finding of new resources. Therefore, new oil & gas wells are being drilled in countries that have not been significant producers of hydrocarbons in the past.


Further, the offshore oil & gas reservoirs are more significant than onshore reservoirs, and the product life of offshore wells is higher than that of onshore wells, companies are shifting towards the adoption of offshore E&P activities. The immediate funding of market processes is another factor that presents the market with a positive outlook for the ongoing period.


Wireline Services Market Segmentation


Looking at the latest research analysis, the Wireline services industry can be bifurcated based on well-type, service, application, and location type. Out of all the segments of this market, the cased holes segment will witness tremendous growth during the forecast period. It offers many advantages, such as determining perforation, cement status, and corrosion. On the other hand, the open-hole segment will experience a growth at a steady rate due to the usage of sensors in it for determining and measuring reservoirs. Also, due to the rising adoption of shale gas to reduce carbon emissions, the onshore segment will witness more growth than the offshore segment. If we look at the application segment, the increase in demand for crude oil and shale gas logging is expected to witness significant progress during the research period.


Based on the application, it has logging, intervention, and completion.
