Key Trends and Analysis of Oilfield Drill Bits Market:

  • Based on the drill bit type, the roller cone bits held a dominant position in the market in 2016 and is expected retain its dominance over the forecast period. Higher strength and durability offered by fixed cutter bits, such as PDC and diamond bits is a major factor contributing to increasing demand of these bits in  the market. Diamond has a hardness of 10 on the Mohrs’ scale, owing to which diamond bits are preferred in hard and abrasive formations. However, use of diamond for the manufacturing of these drill bits considerably increases its manufacturing costs, which is a major factor expected to restrain the demand for diamond bits in the market over the forecast period.

Key Takeaways of the Market:

  • North America dominated the global oilfield drill bits market and was valued at US$ 1.69 billion in 2016. The region is projected to witness a CAGR of 6.4% in terms of revenue during the forecast period (2017-2025). The dominance is majorly attributed to the rising E&P shale projects being undertaken in the U.S. The IEA has predicted a 53% increase in investments in shale activity in the U.S. in even though oil prices are hovering around the US$ 50/bbl price mark. The U.S. shale producers are benefiting from the OPEC’s decision to lower their production thus leaving tremendous potential for the growth of shale gas producers in the U.S.
  • The Middle East is projected to be the second largest region in terms of revenue in the global oilfield drill bits market in 2016. The Middle East oilfield drill bits market was valued at US$ 1.32 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach US$ 2.18 billion by 2025 growing at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. The recovering crude oil prices has seen a surge in E&P projects being undertaken in the Middle East. The Leviathan field located, 130 kms off Israel has substantial reserves of 1.7 billion barrels of oil alongside 3.4 trillion cubic meters of natural gas. Noble Energy is expected to start production in this field by 2019. Projects such as these are expected to boost the demand for oilfield drill bits in the Middle East region during the forecast period.

Some of the major players operating in the global oilfield drill bits market are Baker Hughes Inc., Drill Master Inc,, National Oilwell Varco Inc., Schlumberger, Scientific Drilling International Inc., Ulterra Drilling Technologies, Atlas Copco AB and Halliburton Inc., among others.
