Oil & gas is expected to be the largest segment of the offshore support vessel market

The lifecycle of oil and gas fields can be segmented into 4 phases, namely, exploration, development, production, and decommissioning; each phase has its own set of requirements. Offshore support vessels are designed for specific operations and deliver support services at offshore drilling rigs and oil-producing assets, such as production platforms and floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) unit. These offshore support vessels are also used to carry out pipe laying services and decommissioning of offshore rigs. In the North Sea alone, over 450 platforms, 10,000 km of pipelines, and 5,000 wells are expected to be decommissioned by 2040. According to the Oil & Gas UK, an offshore oil & gas industry association in the UK, decommissioning of this infrastructure would cost up to USD 80 billion. Globally, there are approximately 7,000 offshore structures that are eligible for decommissioning. The Gulf of Mexico and the North Sea are two of the largest regions with most infrastructure eligible for decommissioning. Decommissioning of rigs generates demand for offshore support vessels, thereby driving the market growth.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest offshore support vessel market

In this report, the Offshore Support Vessel Market has been analyzed with respect to 6 regions, namely, North America, Asia Pacific, South America, Europe, Middle East, and Africa. Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global Offshore Support Vessel Market between 2021 and 2026. The major economies in Asia Pacific, such as China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand, are focusing on increasing their offshore E&P CAPEX. According to Scottish Development International, the CAPEX for new offshore developments in Asia Pacific is set to be about 25% of the global spending, making the region an important part of the offshore industry. Various policymakers in the region are prioritizing new offshore activities in deep and ultra-deep waters. The most important of these new offshore developments include Australia’s Briseis, Scarborough, and Laverda projects; Malaysia’s Rotan, Gumusut-Kakap, and Petai projects; India’s KG-D6 complex; and Indonesia’s Gehem project. Moreover, the count of offshore support vessels is also growing in the region due to an increase in the number of vessel manufacturers in the market, especially from China and South Korea.
