“Directional drilling services market projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.34% from 2016 to 2021”
The directional drilling services market is projected to reach USD 10.30 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 4.34% during the forecast period. Increasing energy demand due to industrialization & urbanization, shale gas developments, advancement are set to drive the market growth for directional drilling services across the world.

“Onshore applications account for a largest share of the directional drilling services market”
In terms of market, by application, the directional drilling services market in this report has been classified based on the following segments, namely, Onshore & Offshore. Directional drilling is most frequently adopted in onshore applications. This segment is primarily driven by high number of maturing fields in onshore regions and high prevalence of shale gas exploration and production throughout the world. Moreover, the ease of mobility is high in onshore regions which allows for multiple usages of directional drilling services, and is expected to create new revenue pockets for the directional drilling services market during the forecast period.

“Middle East segment: The fastest growing segment of the directional drilling services market”
In terms of market, by region, the Middle East segment is expected to be the fastest growing segment of the directional drilling services market during the forecast period. The increasing demand for energy due to urbanization and industrialization, new oilfield discoveries is continuously increasing which will further boost the demand for directional drilling services in the region. Apart from the Middle East, North America is also the biggest market for directional drilling services.
Measurement While Drilling (MWD) & survey segment: The fastest growing segment of the directional drilling services market.

MWD is the technique of measuring the well bore inclination from the vertical, which is useful for controlling the well trajectory during drilling. The use of MWD also allows the operator to measure the well bore inclination with respect to the magnetic north, which can further provide real-time position updates. The market MWD is expected to grow at a highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021, These techniques are expected to act as catalysts for the growth of the directional drilling market in the North America, Asia-Pacific, which would further boost the MWD & survey segment market.
