Region : Global | Report ID: FBI104036 | Status : Ongoing



The oil & gas industry plays a vital role in the overall growth of the country’s economy, which improves the financial as well as social life. Increasing demand from the oil & gas industry and growing demand for water exploration projects across the globe had enabled the giant players to pump huge investments into the drilling industry, which increases the demand for water well drilling rigs. Additionally, achieving more drilling contracts, expansion of current business, and adopting diverged business strategies to enhance the market are the key competitive analysis factors, which help to leverage the demand for water well drilling rigs during the forecast period.

The water well drilling rigs market is segmented into the drilling method and end-user. Based on the drilling method, the market is segmented into the direct rotary drill, down the hole (DTH) drill, and others. The direct rotary drill segment is holding the largest market owing to a higher speed in drilling and improved efficiency.

Based on the end-user, the water well drilling rigs are further segmented into residential, irrigation, mining, oil & gas, and others. The irrigation segment is leading the market due to the growing number of onshore as well as offshore water drilling contracts from developing economies. Growing exploration and mining projects also drives the demand for water well drilling rigs market. These factors are primarily dominating the market during the forecast period.

An increase in drilling activities and growing demand for water exploration projects are the major factors attributed to the growth of the water well drilling rigs. An increase in water demand owing to the rising population is also propelling the demand for water well drilling rigs in the projected period. Growing government investments and supportive initiatives for building infrastructure and mining exploration projects hold promising growth opportunities for the water well drilling rigs.
