Strategic Analysis of the North American Oil and Gas NDT Inspection Services Market

Strategic Analysis of the North American Oil and Gas NDT Inspection Services Market

The North American oil and gas nondestructive testing (NDT) inspection services market is expected to come under pressure due to crude oil prices in the short term, but the prospects are positive for the medium-to-long term. Among the different segments, downstream NDT inspection services is expected to grow the fastest, and provide growth opportunities.

The impact of low crude oil prices is expected to be greater on the Canadian market than on the US market, as the break-even point for oil sands production is higher than for shale oil.

From a regional perspective, the Bakken Shale region in North Dakota and the Permian basin spread across Texas are the highest-growth markets. In Canada, Alberta is the “king” of the NDT inspection services market but British Columbia is expected to be a growth destination.

The largest participants in the North American oil and gas NDT inspection services market are Acuren, MISTRAS Group Inc., Team Inc., and Applus RTD.

Over the next 􂀀–􀀠years, there are good growth opportunities in this market, but participants need to balance their revenue streams between capital-expenditure-driven and operational-expenditure-driven revenue.
