Rotary Steerable Systems Market
Rotary Steerable Systems Market

Global Rotary Steerable Systems Market is expected to grow at a significant rate of over 8% during the forecast period. A rotary steerable system is a drilling technique used in the directional drilling process. In recent years, the demand for rotary steerable systems has risen dramatically due to the rising investments in the offshore drilling sector as well as the growing demand for energy, globally. As rotary steerable systems utilize the use of specialized downhole equipment to replace conventional directional tools such as mud motors. The demand for new oil fields is significantly fulfilled by the higher quality drilling rotary steerable systems, which is going to create lucrative opportunities for market growth of rotary steerable systems globally. For instance, in November 2020, D-Tech launched its Invictus rotary steerable tool (RST). This product launch will allow directional firms to use the RST with their preferred measurement while drilling (MWD) sensors for real-time downhole communication, giving all users a better awareness of downhole conditions at the lowest cost.

Halliburton Company, Baker Hughes Company, Weatherford International plc, NOV Inc., Schlumberger Limited, APS Technology Inc., Nabors Industries Limited, Target Energy LLC, Double Barrel RSS, Leam Drilling Systems LLC. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to develop the coal bed methane market. For instance, In August 2021, Schlumberger launched Autonomous Directional Drilling. This product is used to help customers achieve new levels of well construction efficiency, consistency, and sustainability and strengthen its rotary steerable portfolio segment. 

Insights Presented in the Report

“Amongst type, push the bit category to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period”

Based on type, the market is segmented into push the bit and point the bit. The push the bit segment is to witness higher CAGR during the forecast period owing to its easy availability and low cost. Push the bit tool’s outer surface has a pad that pushes the drill hole, eventually pushing the bit to the other side and changing the direction. Furthermore, the entry of global players into emerging markets adds to the growth of the market. For instance, In November 2021, Halliburton released iCruise X™ Intelligent Rotary Steerable System, the next generation of the drilling platform targeted for longer, harsher applications to deliver precise good placement and reduced well time.

“Amongst application, the onshore segment to hold a significant share in the market in 2020”

On the basis of drive type, the market is categorized into onshore and offshore. Among these, the onshore segment to hold a significant share in the market in 2020. This is mainly due to the simple drilling methods, low drilling costs, low operating costs, huge resource availability, and others are factors driving the growth of the onshore segment in the target market. In recent times, both conventional and unconventional reservoirs have been found in large numbers on the onshore location, which will increase market demand for rotary steerable systems through the forecast period.

“North America to hold a significant share in the market”

In 2020, North America is anticipated to grow at a substantial CAGR during the forecast period. North America is one of the leading rotary steerable system markets, owing to the increasing drilling & production activities. North America is also known as the most important oil and gas market. In addition, the increasing investment in oil and gas, and the discovery of new oil and gas fields such as the North Sea drilling project, will drive the growth of regional markets. Moreover, the increasing regional energy demand due to regional population growth and per capita disposable income is expected to boost the market during the forecast period. Furthermore, In the U.S., advancements in hydraulic drilling technology have helped the operators increase their shale production in this region. Hence, the country is one of the largest markets for drilling rotary steerable. The application of lateral section drilling in the U.S., Canada, and other countries plays an important role in the introduction of steerable rotation systems market growth.
