The global digital oilfield market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Digital oilfield is an umbrella term referring to technology-centric solutions that incorporate advanced data analysis and software systems in order to enhance oil recovery from the oil seabed. The software replicates the functioning of an oil and gas field using workflows and predictive analysis generated by using the information relating to wellbores, reservoirs and surface facilities. This simplifies the decision-making process through intelligently filtered data and optimum utilization of technology. Digitalization of oilfields assists in the effective deployment of both human and machine resources and enhances the overall cost-effectiveness of the operations. It improves overall safety, environmental protection, optimizes hydrocarbon production rate and eliminates wastage of resources.
The rising trend of digitalization across several industries, including oil and gas, is the key factor driving the market growth. The increasing demand for oil and oil derivates across various industries coupled with the potentially hazardous working environment of the oil and gas sector, has significantly enhanced the need for digital oilfields. Furthermore, many oilfields are saturating, owing to which digital mechanisms are being employed to enhance oil recovery. Advanced solutions such as well testing facilities and reservoir optimization are gaining traction amongst the end use industries. An increasing number of exploration activities that are leading to discoveries of new oilfields is also catalyzing the growth of the market. Moreover, the growing usage of real-time monitoring of operations to reduce non-productive functions and losses is projected to drive the market further. These systems also enable more efficient management of the plants with accurate and reliable administration as compared to manually supervised fields and related operations. Other factors such as advancements in wireless technologies, data analysis and collection services along with the rising investment in offshore oil exploration activities are also expected to positively impact the market growth. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global digital oilfield market to grow at a CAGR of around 5% during the forecast period (2021-2026).
