Market Segmentation

"Real Time Testing Service Segment to Dominate the Market by Service Type"

Real time testing service accounts for major share in the well testing market and it is estimated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. Real time testing helps to monitor and proactive measures to ensure safe operation, validate the data, optimize the flaring operation and reduces cost. Real time testing has emerged as a significant tool for operators to strengthen their position and control expenditure in such a way that mild fluctuation in the price of crude oil will have a negligible effect on the operations. In terms of growth, the market demand is likely to move towards surface well testing and reservoir sampling services during the forecast period to optimize the operation and increase production output with minimum cost.

"Shifting Focus Toward Subsea Investment Is Likely to Derive the Well Testing Service Market"

In terms of application, the offshore sector is expected to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period owing to increasing investment in subsea oil & gas assets. Rising concern over optimizing operations and reducing cost has increased the demand for well-testing services to improve productivity, reservoir performance, and overall life cycle of the well. The global oilfield service market was dominated by onshore segment in the year 2018 and it is expected to decline during the forecast period.

Regional Analysis

"North America Is the Leading Market for Well Testing Services"

North America holds a major market share of well testing service market owing to increasing production of hydrocarbons leading to a number of new discoveries and active rigs. Asia Pacific secured a second place where countries like China, India, Indonesia, and Thailand are the major contributors and the trend is anticipated to improve during the forecast period. Globally, the U.S. accounted for almost 50% of the new wells drilled in the year 2017 followed by China and other Asian countries. The Middle East & Africa region is expected to expand at a relatively higher CAGR during 2019-2026, which was ascribed to the increasing investment in Nigeria, Egypt, Algeria, and the Gulf countries.
