Offshore Support Vessel Market by Type (Anchor Handling Tug Supply, Platform Supply Vessel, Multipurpose Support Vessel, Standby & Rescue Vessel, Crew Vessel, & Others), by Depth (Shallow & Deepwater), & by Region - Global Forecast to 2020

Offshore Support Vessel Market by Type (Anchor Handling Tug Supply, Platform Supply Vessel, Multipurpose Support Vessel, Standby & Rescue Vessel, Crew Vessel, & Others), by Depth (Shallow & Deepwater), & by Region - Global Forecast to 2020

Growing demand for oil & gas is expected to drive the offshore support vessel market at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. Meanwhile, the recent decline in the global crude oil price has negatively affected E&P activities, which is prominently visible with the sharp decline in the global rig count, affecting drilling activities. This has further affected the market of offshore support vessels. Discovery of new offshore oil & gas fields and growing demand for oil & gas are the major driving factors of the market.

Deepwater offshore support vessels are expected to witness the highest growth in the market. With maturing onshore oilfields, subsea and offshore markets are expected to grow significantly over the next few years, with West Africa, North America, South America, and Europe leading in total expenditures. As a result, deepwater offshore support vessels are estimated to grow at the highest rate and are slightly ahead of shallow water offshore support vessels.
