“The well intervention market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2019 to 2024”
The well intervention market is projected to reach USD 11.6 billion by 2024 from an estimated USD 8.8 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period. Rising production from the existing oil & gas reserves has driven the well intervention market growth. Furthermore, shale developments and rising drilling activities are driving the market. However, declining oil demand from Europe due to the transition towards renewables is likely to hamper the growth of well intervention market.

“The horizontal segment, by well type, is expected to be the largest and the fastest growing market from 2019 to 2024”
The well type segment is categorized as horizontal and vertical, the two drilling methods adopted by companies. In 2018, horizontal wells accounted for about 70% of the wells drilled globally. This is majorly due to the increasing drilling activities in the Middle East and Europe, where horizontal drilling is more prominent. More well intervention operations are required in horizontal wells as compared to the vertical wells as the wellbore faces a higher challenge of water shutoffs and wax formation. North America is expected to hold the largest horizontal well type market, with continuous shale developments in lower-48 states in the US.

“The offshore segment, by application, is expected to be the fastest growing market from 2019 to 2024”
The offshore segment is expected to be the fastest growing application subsegment during the forecast period, owing to the discoveries in the deepwater and ultra-deepwater locations. The offshore wells create demand opportunities for well intervention operations due to the challenging geographic conditions and regulatory standards by nations. Moreover, recent discoveries in Guyana, the US, and Cyprus located in ultra-deepwater, which is wholly owned by oil companies, indicates that these firms aim at focussing on deepwater exploration. This is driving the growth of the offshore segment of the well intervention market. Europe is projected to be the largest offshore application market by 2024, owing to the rising number of mature oil & gas fields which are located in the North Sea.

“North America: The largest and the fastest growing region in the well intervention market.”
North America is expected to dominate the global well intervention market between 2019 and 2024. The North American oil production is rising drastically, with a growth rate of 8.5% from 2017 to 2018. Moreover, the continuous shale activities in the region are driving the demand for well intervention operations. The upstream operators, such as Total, ExxonMobil, Chevron, and Apache, also have a significant presence in North America. This creates more opportunities for oilfield service providers to capture long-term contracts.
