 Oil and Gas Upstream Equipment Market Size to grow by USD 11226.76 million between 2024-2028

According to a research report “ Oil and Gas Upstream Equipment Market” by Application (Exploration and drilling, Completion and procedure, Others) Deployment (Onshore, Offshore) Geography (North America, Europe, APAC, South America, Middle East and Africa)- Global Forecast to 2028 published by Technavio, the market size is estimated to grow by USD 11226.76 million, at a CAGR of  3.26% during the forecast period. In the oil and gas industry, midstream refers to the transportation phase, which is crucial for moving raw resources from production sites to refineries and ultimately to end-users. This process involves various modes such as pipelines, shipping, trucking, and railroading. Oil and gas projects are characterized by long-term commitments, with an average lifecycle spanning 20-30 years. Among these transport modes, pipelines are the preferred choice for long-distance transportation due to their energy efficiency and resulting lower carbon footprint. This feature aligns with businesses' sustainability goals, making pipelines a preferred investment for oil and gas companies.

By Application, the Exploration and drilling segment is projected to dominate the market size in 2024

In the Oil and Gas Upstream sector, drilling rigs play a pivotal role in creating wellbores to access hydrocarbon reservoirs. Onshore drilling rigs can be classified into rotary drilling rigs, directional drilling rigs, and coil tubing rigs, each employing distinct drilling techniques. Simultaneously, onshore processing facilities are indispensable for separating oil, natural gas, and water. Key processing equipment encompasses separators, dehydrators, and heaters. Concurrently, onshore production facilities comprise processing plants, separators, storage tanks, and other essential infrastructure for separating and preparing hydrocarbons for transportation and sale. Onshore wells are fitted with wellheads, comprising valves, control systems, and other components, to manage the flow of oil and gas from the reservoir to the surface.

By Deployment, Onshore  segment is expected to hold the largest market size for the year 2024

In the oil and gas industry, the upstream sector plays a crucial role in the exploration and production process. This stage involves the initial search for crude oil or natural gas through various geological surveys and the subsequent drilling of exploratory wells. Utilizing advanced technologies such as reflective seismic, passive seismic, gravity, and magnetic surveys, potential hydrocarbon-bearing rocks, or prospects, are identified. Seismic surveys employ sophisticated equipment like streamers, vessels, hydrophones, geophones, and receivers to capture vast amounts of high-frequency data. Geologists analyze this data in real-time to pinpoint the optimal location for production. The upstream sector's success hinges on the effective implementation of these exploratory techniques and the subsequent drilling operations.

North America is forecasted to hold the largest market size by region in 2024

The North American region dominates the oil and gas industry, accounting for a significant portion of active rig counts. This market potential is further amplified due to the resurgence of deep and ultra-deep oil and gas projects in the Gulf of Mexico. With crude oil prices gradually stabilizing, these projects have recommenced, driving demand for oil and gas upstream equipment. Additionally, the exploration and production of unconventional energy sources, such as shale and oil sands, are expected to boost the market for upstream equipment in North America.
