Global Floating Production Storage and Offloading Market to Grow at 6.4% During 2022-2027, Supported by Rising Number of Offshore Exploration Activities

Published on Mar 30, 2021

According to the recent report by IMARC Group, titled “Floating Production Storage and Offloading Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global floating production storage and offloading market reached a value of US$ 19.0 Billion in 2021. Floating production storage and offloading (FPSO) vessels are employed in the offshore oil and gas fields to process hydrocarbons acquired from subsea oil reservoirs. They are equipped with hydrocarbon processing equipment that separates and treats hydrocarbons into oil, gas, and water. FPSO stores processed natural gas or crude oil until it is offloaded into shuttle tankers or carried through export pipelines to refineries. These vessels include generators, pumps, control rooms, storage tanks, and accommodation facilities. This mechanism helps extract and process oil and gas in remote locations at a low cost with better flexibility, safety, versatility, and high storage capacity.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Floating Production Storage and Offloading Market Trends:

The global FPSO market growth can be majorly attributed to a rise in offshore exploration activities. Along with this, the increasing requirement for integrated compact systems in offshore reservoirs to withstand extreme conditions is catalyzing the market growth. An enhanced focus on deep-water oil extraction and the steadily rising demand for energy are acting as other major growth-inducing factors. Additionally, FPSO units do not require expensive subsea oil pipelines to export oil, which is creating a positive outlook for the market. Some of the other growth-inducing factors include various technological advancements and the digitization of FPSO vessels. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of 6.4% during 2022-2027
