“The artificial lift market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2020 to 2025.”
The artificial lift market is projected to reach USD 10.3 billion by 2025 from an estimated USD 8.0 billion in 2020, at a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period. Rising production from the existing oil & gas reserves as well as depleting reserves has driven the artificial lift 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 the artificial lift market.
“The horizontal segment, by well type, is expected to be the largest and the fastest-growing market from 2020 to 2025.”
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 artificial lift 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 2020 to 2025.”
The offshore segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Artificial lift methods such as hydraulic pumping, gas lift, ESP, and PCP are most prominently used in offshore oil wells. The companies have been exploring the offshore locations for oil & gas production owing to the fact that offshore has huge untapped reserves. Thus, the offshore market is a more capital-intensive segment as compared to onshore. According to the IEA, between 2019 and 2040, 2,500–3,000 offshore projects are likely to undergo decommissioning, as they have attained their operational lives. The Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea have the highest number of maturing shallow fields. Thus, such maturing shallow fields have created demand opportunities for artificial lift methods in the Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea regions.
“North America: The largest and the third fastest-growing region in the artificial lift market.”
North America is expected to dominate the global artificial lift market between 2020 and 2025. The North American oil production is rising drastically, with a growth rate of 5.0% from 2020 to 2025. Moreover, the continuous shale activities in the region are driving the demand for artificial lift 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.
