Exponential Economic Development to Bode Well for the Market

Developed and emerging countries are shaping the global economy. Technological advancement increases the standard of living with the introduction of automation, robotics, space and aviation, electrical and electronic appliances and automobile and others. These factors are increase the demand for hydrocarbon which subsequently drive the well casing market. Moreover, the growing trade between countries to accommodate varied consumer demand. Exponential growth in different industry verticals likely to bode the hydrocarbon industry.


Massive Investment in Recovering Untapped Hydrocarbon Reserves to boost the Market

Hydrocarbon is an integral part of the economic growth of any country. The exponential demand for oil and gas has outpaced the current reserves production capacity. Many countries are increasing capital expenditure on securing future energy outlook by investing in untapped hydrocarbon reserves. Emerging economies is likely to play a crucial role in future energy dynamics on account of tremendous commercialization and urbanization. Therefore, the growing interest in recovering untapped hydrocarbon to secure the future energy demand set to bode the well casing market.

Growing Drilling Activities to Match the Extensive Requisition for Hydrocarbons

Upstream activities continue to expand on account of tremendous oil and gas demand. Drilling and production are increasing throughout the world, with a primary focus on producing more and more hydrocarbons. As per the World Oil estimates in 2018, the drilling outside the U.S. is forecast to increase 4.6% to 43,456 wells led by improvement in Russia, China, Western Europe, Australia, and part of Africa. Moreover, the operator is exhibiting interest in investing in new E&P projects, which bolster the well casing industry growth.


Unpredictable Market Outlook and Growing Interest in Clean Energy Technology

Crude oil prices in the international market are continuously fluctuating due to socio-political scenarios and economic slowdown. The oil crisis in 2008 and 2015 crumbled the investment in the oil and gas industry. Also, excessive production by OPEC countries reduced the crude price in the international market, causing severe losses to operators. Besides, growing concern over greenhouse emissions and increased investment in clean energy technology set to retard the well casing industry growth.

Production Casing Leads the Well Casing Industry

The casing is a heavy metal pipe which used to prevent the borehole from caving in. It plays a crucial role in avoiding fluid migration and protecting freshwater aquifers. Production casing projected to dominate the casing type analysis. It is an essential type to provide structural well integrity and pressure control of the hydrocarbon during production. Meanwhile, other well casings are also used in well construction operations such as conductor casing, surface casing, and intermediate casing. All the casings are necessary for well integrity and reliable operations.

By Application Analysis

Onshore Segment Projected to Dominate the Market

The substantial share of a hydrocarbon produced from onshore wells. Onshore E&P activities offer many advantages such as economical and feasible operation, availability of equipment, and personnel. Besides, onshore production is one of the established segments encompasses ease of operation and competitive production and operational cost as compared to offshore production. However, offshore production seems to grow at a steady rate owing to a high price of recovering untapped hydrocarbon potential.
