Global Work Class ROVs Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Work class ROVs are used to carry out tasks that are too difficult or dangerous for human divers. They can be used to inspect pipelines and other underwater infrastructure, collect data, and even recover objects from the seafloor. Work class ROVs are important for safety and efficiency in underwater operations.

Oil & Gas Industry:

The oil and gas industry is a source of energy that is used for the production of transportation fuels, power, and liquid fuels. The global demand for oil has been increasing steadily over the past few years on account of growing population coupled with rising per capita income in developing economies such as China, India, Brazil and Mexico. This trend is expected to continue over the forecast period owing to rapid industrialization in these countries.

Scientific Research:

Scientific research and it's usage in Work Class ROVs market? Scientific research is the systematic study to explore facts and develop new knowledge. It includes both basic and applied scientific studies. It also helps in gaining new insights into existing problems or puzzles by using logical reasoning, observation, testing, experimentation, modeling & simulation or some other method.

Application Insights:

The global work class ROV market is segmented by application into drilling support, construction support, inspection, repair and maintenance (IRM), others and regional segments including North America, Latin America, Europe Asia Pacific Middle East & Africa. The DRilling Support segment dominated the overall market in 2017 owing to the rising number of oil & gas wells being drilled worldwide. This has resulted in an increased demand for ROVs for this purpose. Furthermore, a rise in exploration activities is expected to boost product demand over the forecast period.

The Construction Support application segment was valued at USD 1.5 billion in 2017 owing to an increase in offshore projects particularly across emerging economies such as India.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has a large number of work class ROVs manufacturers, which makes it a key revenue generator for the industry. China, South Korea, Japan and India are some of the major countries that dominate this regional market owing to their large-scale deployment in various industries such as oil & gas exploration & production; scientific research; military & defense; and others.

The Asia Pacific regional market is anticipated to be driven by rising demand from countries such as China, India, Australia and Singapore among others. Countries like these have been experiencing strong economic growth due to which there has been an increase in infrastructure development activities carried out underwater for civil engineering projects such as hydroelectric power plants etc., thereby driving product demand across this region.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for oil and gas due to growing population and industrialization
  • Rising investments in offshore drilling activities
  • Proliferation of deepwater and ultra-deepwater exploration projects
  • Growing popularity of Work Class ROVs among small to medium sized oilfield service companies
  • Technological advancements that improve the performance, efficiency, and safety of Work Class ROVs
