The global artificial lift system market size was valued at USD 8.4 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 13 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 5.32% during the forecast period.

The artificial lift system is one of the established & mature technology that helps in assisting oil wells to boost reservoir pressure. Around 85-90% of the wells need artificial lift assistance to supplement reservoir pressure. Various types of artificial lifts are employed according to properties of the well and availability of technology, which will subsequently growth of the global market in the coming years. 

The global oil consumption market size has witnessed rapid growth in the last couple of decades owing to potential growth in the industrial and transportation sector. To meet such a high demand for hydrocarbon, many operators around the globe incessantly drilling to maximize their production. But in the existing wells, the reservoir pressure is not enough to produce fluids to the surface. Most of the wells in the world need some assistance to get the hydrocarbon to the surface.

Electric Submersible Pump (ESP) is a versatile technology and is broadly accepted in various parts of the world to enhance oil production. It is the most suitable technology for moderate to high production rate including highly deviated wells, remote and subsea deepwater wells. The sucker rod pump is the most popular type of artificial lift owing to its lower installation cost and relatively long life.

The artificial lift system market  It is used in many wells as production rates decline and operational cost increases which have made it the most frequently deployed artificial lift in the world. Other types are also contributing to the market, such as progressive cavity pump, gas lift, hydraulic lift, and others.

The growing world oil consumption in addition to economic development in different industries such as transportation, aviation, power generation, etc. is likely to contribute to increasing demand for hydrocarbon which will lead to a subsequent demand for artificial lift systems in the forthcoming years. This is expected to fuel the demand for the market.

Artificial Lift system is not only essential in lifting the fluid to the surface but also help to extend well life. Most of the wells around the world don’t have sufficient natural pressure that limits its production capacity. In that case, artificial lift assist to enhance the reservoir pressure to increase the oil and gas production. Sometime operator deploys artificial lift to maximize their production rate and minimize the operational cost. The artificial lift system is also deployed in abandoned well to get extra production of hydrocarbon. The selection criterion of artificial lift system is based on the reservoir characteristics, production properties, fluid types, and operational conditions. Therefore, artificial lift system offers an optimal solution to boost hydrocarbon production.
