Global Offshore Support Vessels Market to Grow at 4% During 2022-2027, Spurred by Considerable Growth in Oil and Gas Sector

Published on Jun 03, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Offshore Support Vessels Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global offshore support vessels market size reached US$ 41.1 Billion in 2021. Offshore support vessels are marine vessels that are used for offering services to offshore drilling rigs, pipe laying, and oil manufacturing platforms during production and exploration activities across the oil and gas sector. They also assist in transportation, standby capacity and platform support. They are widely used for transporting goods, supplies and equipment from one point to the other during subsea exploration and construction activities. Their use further aids in anchor management and the mobility of crew members to offshore sites.

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 Offshore Support Vessels Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by significant growth in the oil and gas sector. An increase in the number of oil and gas exploratory activities across the globe has impelled the demand for offshore support vessels. This is also supported by the increase in offshore investments by public and private organizations. Additionally, the increasing number of regasification terminals at offshore sites due to the growing demand for LNG is also acting as a major growth-inducing factor. The market is further driven by the widespread integration of Dynamic Positioning (DP) systems with offshore support vessels. Besides this, extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players have led to the development of computer-controlled vessels that enable users to automatically control their propellers and thrusters in an attempt to maintain specific positions. This, along with the growing preference towards the usage of renewable energy resources, is providing a further thrust to the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to a CAGR of 4% during 2022-2027.
