Floating Production System (FPS) Market 2
Floating Production System (FPS) Market 2


Floating Production System (FPS) Market is anticipated display a CAGR of around 7% over the forecast period (2021-2027). The floating production system market growth is driven by robust investments in the offshore oil & gas and renewable sectors. Increasing deepwater activities and decommissioning of aging offshore infrastructure is likely to offer lucrative opportunities for the market. Moreover, global natural gas consumption is likely to increase more than 40% between 2018 and 2050 and oil consumption continues to grow and the interest in offshore hydrocarbon resources remains strong. Furthermore, increasing investments in energy sector would create more opportunity for market to expand.

In addition, Oil & gas operators are pushing their boundaries in search of new oil & gas reserves in ultra-deepwater, especially the Artic region. According to the US Geological Survey, more than 70% of undiscovered oil resources are estimated to be present in 5 provinces—Arctic Alaska, Amerasia Basin, East Greenland Rift Basins, East Barents Basins, and West Greenland–East Canada..

Keppel Offshore and Marine Ltd., Malaysia Marine and Heavy Engineering SDN BHD, Samsung Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., SBM Offshore NV, Bumi Armada Berhad, Hyundai Heavy Industries Co. Ltd., Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd., TechnipFMC PLC, MODEC Inc., and McDermott International Ltd. are some of the prominent players operating in the Floating Production System (FPS) market.

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst Type, FPSO category to hold significant market share”

Based on type, the Floating Production System market is bifurcated into FPSO, Tension Leg Platform, SPAR, and Barge. In 2020, FPSO to account for significant market share in the global market. Moreover, the depletion of onshore oil deposits, along with the high costs of infrastructure construction, will encourage the deployment of FPSOs as an alternative. The potential of these units to cheaply speed oil and gas procurement will increase their deployment in the future years.


“Amongst Water Depth, Commercial category to witness strong CAGR”

Based on water depth type, the market is segmented into Shallow Water and Deepwater & Ultra-deepwater. The Deepwater and Ultra-deepwater segment grabbed major share market share of the Global Market and gathered revenue of USD XX million in 2020. The segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period. This is mainly due to more technological advancements & countries focus the trend for deeper waters for proposed offshore FPSO, is projected to rise by 2030. The increasing number of finds and exploitation of marginal oil reserves in distant offshore areas, along with the capacity of FPSOs to operate without fixed structure support, will have a favorable impact on market growth. Although the energy transition is already underway, offshore oil and gas will continue to play a key role in providing energy for the world. Thus, maintaining steady growth during the forecast period.

“Brazil to lead Market Growth Between 2021-2027”

Brazil market is one of the largest market growing at a significant CAGR due to growing of new contracts for FPS. The South American nation is expected to continue driving global awards during the forecast, with an additional three FPSOs expected in 2022. Not only is the country delivering more contracts and awards, but the Brazilian projects are expected to be the largest in terms of production capability, the analyst said. For instance, the FPSO P-80 will become the ninth in the Buzios area. It will have an oil processing capacity of around 225,000 b/d and a gas processing capacity of about 12 MMcm/d. This is the same size as the FPSO Almirante Tamandare awarded in early 2021. The FPSO boom in South America is mainly the result of large investments in deepwater exploration and field development. Another important factor has been Brazil’s recent relaxation of local content regulations, which has attracted new international players to the table.
