Downhole Tools Market by Tool Type (Flow & Pressure Control, Drilling, Impurity Control, Downhole Control, and Handling), Application (Drilling, Completion, Well Intervention, Formation & Evaluation, and Oil & Gas Production) & by Region - Global Trends & Forecast to 2019
This report estimates the downhole tools market in terms of value in $million. This has been broken down into application, tool-type, and region and has been further split into countries. The downhole tools market is a fairly established tools industry in the oilfield equipment sector having a decent growth rate. Downhole tools are important functional components for applications that range from flow and pressure control to drilling and handling tools. Downhole tools are used for efficient and effective production of oil & gas. Its robust and ruggedness built makes it easy to use in a complex well situation. Downhole tools can also be used in high pressure and temperature conditions, where the use of ordinary equipment to dig out the hydrocarbons becomes impossible. In addition, stringent environmental regulations imposed by governments also drive the market.
North America dominated the global downhole tools market in 2014, followed Asia-Pacific and Middle East. In North America, the U.S. leads with maximum developments in the downhole tools market. The African market is expected to grow at a faster rate due to new hydrocarbons discoveries in this region.
The downhole tools market has been segmented into six major regions, namely North America, South & Central America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia-Pacific. The market has further been segmented on the basis of its types, namely flow and pressure control, impurity control, drilling, downhole control systems, and handling tools; it has also been segmented on the basis of its application, covering well drilling, well completion, well intervention, formation & evaluation, and oil & gas production. The report also touches upon various important aspects of the market.
