Global Gas and Oil Drill Bits Industry - Market Research 2015-2019

About drill bits in oil and gas industry

Drill bits are mechanical tools that cut and crush rocks to create wellbores for the extraction of hydrocarbons. They are mainly used in drilling operations for oil or gas wells, either onshore or offshore. They are broadly classified into two major categories:

  • Fixed-cutter bits
  • Roller-cone cutter bits
Fixed-cutter bitsFixed-cutter bits do not have moving cones. They integrate cutting elements into the bit’s body and are designed to excavate holes by shearing, instead of cutting or gouging.Based on type, they are classified into two:
  • PDCs
  • Natural diamond bits
Roller-cone cutter bitsRoller-cone cutter bits include three individually rotating cones. They are designed to drill any formation by adjusting cutters, bearings, and nozzles. Depending on the design of their teeth, they are classified into two:
  • Milled-tooth bits
  • Tungsten carbide inserts
Technavio's analysts forecast the global drill bits in oil and gas industry to grow at a CAGR of 4.05% in terms of over the period 2014-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Drill Bits in Oil and Gas Industry 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Drill Bits in Oil and Gas Industry: Baker Hughes, Halliburton, Varel, National Oilwell Varco and Schlumberger

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Atlas Copco, Cangzhou Great Drill, Champion Cutting Tool, Driltec, Guizhou Sinodrills, Irwin Industrial Tool, NewTech Drilling, Rock River Tool, and Weatherford.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One of the major trends in the market is the integration of drill bits in bottom hole assemblies. Currently, many end-users demand packaged solutions for their drilling operations instead of individual drill bits. These packaged drilling solutions for bottom hole assemblies integrate motors, drilling systems, and bits, thereby reducing the time and energy needed to assemble and calibrate individual components before use.”

According to the report, expansion of oil and gas exploration and drilling activities will stimulate market growth over the forecast period. The growing demand for oil and gas will drive greater investments in advanced technology to increase drill bit efficiency and oil production.

Further, the report states that the lack of skilled personnel with relevant experience and knowledge about the complexities of drilling processes is deterring market growth.
