Global Coiled Tubing Market - 2019-2026
Coiled tubing is a long metal pipe that is rolled over a large reel in the oil and gas industries. It is made up of low-alloy carbon steel with the addition of chromium, copper, and nickel for increasing the corrosion resistivity. It is used for carrying out the upstream activities related to the oil & gas operations and wireline due to its characteristics such as low maintenance, well-contained pressure, rigidity, strength and rapid trip times. It is used for performing various activities such as logging, perforations, productions, drilling, and other activities.
The global coiled tubing market valued USD XX million in 2018 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX% to reach USD XX million by 2026.
The market growth is driven by the rising oil & gas exploration, and extraction activities due to the increasing demand for natural gas. According to the United States Energy Information Administration, the natural gas demand has increased by 4.6% in 2018. Several factors such as power generation, coal to gas switching, residential uses, and industrial uses have resulted in increasing the natural gas demand.
Rising government initiatives for the development of oil improvement projects is further accelerating market growth. For instance, in April 2019, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) had raised the funding to USD 39 Million for cost-shared research and development projects for improving oil and natural gas technologies.
The forecasted market is witnessing the technological advancement for coiled tubing to increase the efficiency of conducting the upstream activities. For instance, Schlumberger had introduced a new-generation coiled tubing (CT) equipment for increasing the efficiency of coiled tubing services and unrestricted wellhead access. Its CT EXPRESS rapid-deployment unit has reduced rig uptime from 3 hours to less than 30 minutes. CT SEAS unit is safer and more efficient, and it reduces operations from 3.5 days to 2 days.
However, the market growth is hindered by fluctuating oil prices, an increase in the length of horizontal wells, water contamination, high maintenance cost environment and public health. There is a lack of professional workforce for carrying out upstream activities by using coiled tubing.
The global coiled tubing market is segmented based on service as well intervention, well completions, well cleaning, drilling, and others. Well intervention service segment accounts for the highest market size due to the rising demand for well intervention operations for stimulation, re-perforation, fluid pumping, milling, and other activities.
Drilling accounts for the significant market share due to rising usage of coiled tubing for drilling, the higher speed of operation, improved safety. Several companies are combining the coiled tubing with directional drilling for oil production from non-vertical wells.
The global coiled tubing market is also classified on the basis of operation into circulation/deliquification, pumping, logging, perforation, and others. The circulation segment accounts for the high market share owing to the high usage of coiled tubing for pumping nitrogen gas into the bottom of the wellbore for boosting oil and gas production. Coiled tubing is used for circulating out the fluid in the oil and gas well.
The pumping segment accounts for the significant market share owing to the rising demand for coiled tubing for injecting a fluid in the well. Coiled tubing is used for cementing perforations in pumping operation due to its ability to avoid the potential damage to components. There is high usage of coiled tubing for perforation activity due to its characteristics such as high strength, rigidity, greater tensile and compressive force endurance.
Further, the market is also classified on the basis of application as onshore and offshore. Onshore segment accounts for the highest market share due to the availability of more feasible and cost-effective coiled tubing products for onshore applications. There is a high demand for onshore coiled tubing units in both developed and developing countries. Growing drilling activities and rising shale gas production is further stimulating market growth.
Offshore segment is expected to have positive market growth due to rising production of oil and gas from offshore oil and gas wells worldwide. Several undergoing expansion offshore oilfield projects in the developing countries especially Saudi Arabia shall fuel the market growth over the forecasted period.
By region, the global coiled tubing market is segmented into North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle-East and Africa. Among all of the regions, North America accounted for the highest market share due to increasing gas production and exploration activities. There is rising awareness related to the benefits of using coiled tubing for upstream industries. The United States market is witnessing the drastic increase in the capital expenditure for exploration, development, and production of tight oil. Moreover, there is an increase in shale gas developments in the United States. Developed countries such as the United States and Canada are the major consumers of coiled tubing for upstream activities. The presence of a large number of crude oil reserves in this region is further fueling the market growth over the forecasted period.
Europe accounts for a significant market share due to the growing oilfield service because of the discovery of new oilfields. There is an increased in the demand for crude oil owing to growing energy consumption. According to Eurostat, the primary production of crude oil was 66.7 million tonnes of oil equivalent (Mtoe) in the European Union in 2017. Approximately, 565.7 million tonnes of crude oil was imported to the European Union. The United Kingdom was one of the largest crude oil producers in 2017. The development of cost-effective coiled tubing solutions is stimulating market growth.
Over the forecasted period, it is expected that conventional onshore oil production would increase in the Middle East and Africa region owing to the rising investments and fundings by the National Oil Companies (NOCs). Growing urbanization, rising disposable income, and growing purchasing power of the people are the factors increasing the demand for the coiled tubing in the Asia Pacific region.
The global coiled tubing market is highly competitive with forward and backward integration. Several local and international players are present in the market. The product diversification and new product launches intensify the competition among companies. Halliburton Company, Schlumberger, Weatherford International, Trican Well Service, Superior Energy Services, and Archer Limited are the leading market players with significant market share.
Companies are focusing on product innovation, technological advancement, capacity expansion, operational efficiency, market expansion for holding their position in the market. In April 2017, Halliburton has introduced SPECTRUM FUSION service in the SPECTRUM family of real-time coiled tubing services. The FUSION service includes the first real-time system in the market using hybrid cable technology that combines fiber optic and electric to provide downhole communication and continuous power for a variety of applications. In 2016, Baker Hughes had launched the cost and time-efficiency i.e. Intelligent CT system for accurate and real-time downhole monitoring of high-resolution depth correlation, differential pressure, and temperature data.
The companies are entering into the collaborations, mergers, strategic partnerships and acquisitions to increase the demand for coiled tubing and their expansion across the globe. For instance, in October 2019, Aker BP had entered into a partnership for establishing the well intervention and stimulation alliance with Schlumberger and Stimwell Services to accelerate and boost oil production. Under the terms of the agreement, Schlumberger would provide coiled tubing and flow back operations on Aker BP’s fixed installations, while Stimwell would offering vessel-based stimulation services. In April 2016, Schlumberger had acquired coiled tubing drilling and coiled tubing units from Xtreme Drilling and Coil Services Corp. This acquisition would help the company to develop the most automated and advanced coiled tubing system in the world.
