“The robotic drilling market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 7.01% from 2018 to 2023.”
The robotic drilling market is estimated to reach USD 923.2 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.01% from 2018 to 2023. This market growth is driven by the increased drilling activities due to the development of unconventional hydrocarbon resources and the adoption of automation and robotics in oil and gas drilling, which results in higher efficiency drilling and improved safety in rigs. However, the lack of interoperability of rig control systems used in robotic drilling act as a restraint for the market growth.

“The onshore drilling segment of the robotic drilling market, by application, is expected to grow at a higher CAGR from 2018 to 2023.”
The onshore drilling market is expected to grow at a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The growth of the market can be attributed to the rise in unconventional drilling activities and penetration of automation in onshore drilling in countries such as the US, China, and Canada.

“North America: the largest robotic drilling market.”
North America is estimated to dominate the global robotic drilling market during the forecast period due to the increase in drilling activities in the US and Canada. The US is the largest market in North America and is focused on developing its shale gas resources to increase its oil and gas production, coupled with high adoption of automation and robotics in drilling. Canada is the other key market in North America. The country has an abundance of conventional and unconventional sources of natural gas, including tight gas and shale gas, leveraging its drilling automation technology for extracting these resources.
