Offshore Support Vessel Market Analysis, Revenue, Price, Market Share, Growth Rate, Forecast to 2024

Continually surging prices of oil and subsequent rise in exploration activities across the world are likely to play as major factors stimulating offshore support vessel (OSV) market growth. Over the last few years, the offshore oil & gas industries have expanded significantly, especially in terms of deep-water exploration projects. The US, Saudi Arabia, Mexico, Brazil, and Norway are some of the countries outlaying massive amounts in crude oil production, which is favoring OSV industry size. Government policies across multiple countries to control groundwater pollution caused by onshore drilling and to secure hydrocarbon supply will offer a massive push to offshore drilling activities, which, in turn, is further driving global OSV market trends.

The rising adoption of energy-efficient heating units across the chemicals, hospitals, and food processing sector will bolster the global industrial boiler market size. Prominent companies in recent years have been emphasizing there focus on curbing carbon footprint by adopting energy-efficient water heating systems.

In 2017, a manned tripod structure was planned to be installed in the Gulf of Mexico with a production capacity of approximately 5 Mcf of gas per day and about 4,500 bbl of oil/day.

Rise in demand for floating drill ships is fueling offshore support vessel industry trends. FLNG and FPSO platform are being increasingly installed due to the advantages of vast production and storage capacity associated with them. For instance, in 2016, the first FLNG unit of Petronas was started with a processing capacity of 1.2 mtpa at a deep-water reservoir, located at Kanowit, Malaysia.

With several new subsea exploration & production projects developing in Saudi Arabia, the country is likely to emerge as a key revenue pocket for OSV market. In addition, amplifying drilling activities in the country on account of its vast reserves of oil and gas fields is likely to support industry expansion. , such as Safaniya oilfield producing around 1.1 to 1.5 million bbl/d and accounting for almost 13% of the total offshore oil production in the world.

Furthermore, Norway has a strong order book of shipyards, which substantially caters to the oil and gas industry. Offshore support vessel industry in Norway is likely to surpass 400 OSV fleet due to the discoveries of new oilfields. According to the U.S. EIA, In 2016, Norwegian fields produced about 7% of the total offshore oil production in the world.

A key trend that is becoming prominent within the OSV industry is the rising adoption of LNG by fleet owners to ensure compliance with stringent government norms for limiting marine emissions. In 2015, the International Maritime Organization (IMO) introduced legislation for fleets in emission control areas to limit NOx content to 0.5% in fuel.

A large amount of money is being disbursed by several offshore support vessel market companies to discover and develop new oilfields. Some of the major players operating in offshore support vessel industry are Bourbon, Seacor Marine, Farstad, Gulfmark, Swire, Hornbeck, Havila Shipping, Tidewater, REM Maritime, Siem, Maersk, Vroon, Solstad, Edison Chouset, Island Offshore, and Harvey Gulf.
