Digital Oilfield Market Dynamics and Trends

  • An increase in demand for oil and gas, recovering prices of crude oil, human resource concerns, lowering down operation costs, increase in investments in offshore explorations, and reduction of downtime by companies are salient factors responsible for the growth of the global digital oilfield market.
  • An increase in demand for oil and gas in the world is one of the primary factors promoting the growth of the digital oilfield market. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), the global oil demand in 2018 is 6.9mb/d and is expected to reach 104.7mb/d by 2023. The application is expected to rise at an average annual rate of 1.2mb/d with countries like China and India together contributing to more than 50% of the global oil demand.
  • Additionally, OPEC crude oil prices hit a record high of USD 109 in 2012 and decreased close to USD 96 in 2014. The prices fell steeply in the following years plummeting to USD 40 in 2016 and slowly started recovering in 2017. The cost of crude oil in 2017 was USD 52 and the average crude oil price in 2018 at USD 70.
  • Owing to the factor that crude oil prices are recovering, this would serve as a critical opportunity for most companies to invest in digital oilfield solutions.
  • Fluctuations in oil prices, cyber threats, and unwillingness to adopt digital solutions are some of the aspects that might hinder the global digital oilfield market.
  • Fluctuations in crude oil prices are the primary factor that is responsible for impeding the growth of the digital oilfield market.
  • The laws of supply and demand cause oil prices to fluctuate. When the amount exceeds demand, the oil prices fall. The cost of Brent crude oil in 2014 was USD 99, and it decreased to USD 52 in 2015 and continued to decline until 2016 to USD 43 per barrel. These fluctuations forced many companies to shut down field operations. These unpredictable changes in the prices of crude oil will hamper the growth of the market.

Digital Oilfield Market Segmentation Analysis

  • The global digital oilfield market has been segmented by type of process, kind of service, and geography.
  • The global oil field market has been segmented by the type of process as – Production optimization, Reservoir optimization, Drilling optimization, Repair and maintenance, Well performance evaluation, Safety Management, and Asset management.
  • The global oil production as per the Global energy statistical yearbook in 2005 was about 88721 thousand barrels per day and reached 92649 thousand barrels in 2017 with a 0.7% annual growth rate.
  • Owing to this, production optimization is considered to be a widely growing segment when compared to the other sections because of the increase in global production of oil and gas.
  • Based on the type of service, the market has been segmented into – Automation and Instrumentation services and Information Technology (IT) services. Automation and Instrumentation services in Digital oilfields include SCADA (Supervisory control and data acquisition), good smart sensors, wireless sensors, distributed control systems, and other components which are widely used to monitor industrial operations and real-time process data.
  • These components are crucial for driving this market and therefore, the instrumentation and automation segment continues to dominate the service segment of the digital oilfield market

Global Digital Oilfield Market Geographical Trends

  • The global digital oilfield market is segmented into North America, Europe, the Asia Pacific, the Middle East, Africa, and the Rest of the world.
  • The North American region is further segmented into the following areas: The US, Mexico, and Canada. According to the International Energy Agency, currently, the United States dominates the list of global oil and natural gas producing nations.
  • The annual output of the US increased to 15.6 million barrels per day in 2017 which was previously 14.8 million barrels per day in 2016. Due to this increase in productivity, North America will continue to dominate the global digital oilfield market.
  • Countries in the Middle East region like Saudi Arabia and Iran are global leaders in oil and natural gas production. Saudi Arabia ranks second in the list of oil and natural gas producing nations with an annual output of 12 million barrels per day.
  • Owing to the low production costs and a rise in offshore explorations in these regions, these countries have recently started to adopt digital oilfield solutions and will continue to remain as healthy markets in the future.
