Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023-2035

Oilfield Services Market size is expected to cross USD 264.86 Billion by the end of 2035, growing at a CAGR of 6.35% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-2035. In the year 2022, the industry size of oilfield services was over USD 126.52 Billion.The growth of the market can be attributed to growing demand for oil. In 2022, when global oil consumption was expected to reach about 98 mb/d, growth was slightly curtailed to approximately 2 mb/d. However, in 2023, an additional about 3 mb/d increase is anticipated, driven primarily by non-OECD nations' robust growth trends. Hence, the extraction of oil is anticipated to grow further boosting the oilfield services market for oilfield services.

Moreover, another two important aspects, such as reducing the price of oilfield services and raising production, have also fueled the global industry. Major upstream service providers provide a variety of tailored packages that may save operators millions of dollars. Additionally, the growing usage of hydraulic fracturing and other stimulation techniques for shale gas extraction is also estimated to support the oilfield services sector. According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA), the amount of dry natural gas produced in the United States in 2022 from shale formations was around 28.5 trillion cubic feet (Tcf), or 80% of all dry natural gas produced in the country that year.

Oilfield Services Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • Rising Demand for Energy to Heat Homes - 31.7% of the total energy consumed by EU households in 2020 came from natural gas. Using energy to heat homes accounted for the majority of household energy use in the EU in 2020 (62.8% of total residential energy consumption). Furnaces, boilers and space heaters all use natural gas to heat people's houses. Hence with the growing demand for energy to heat house the demand for natural gas is estimated to boost. Therefore, influencing the market growth further.
  • Growing Adoption of Vehicles - Over 65 million vehicles were sold globally in 2021, however about 66 million vehicles were sold globally in 2022. Hence, the demand for oil is estimated to grow further boosting the oilfield services market growth.
  • Surge in Number of Aircraft - The general aviation fleet was estimated to have about 204,404 aircraft in the United States in 2021, a rise from the previous year. Hence, the demand for jet fuel is estimated increase. To produce jet fuel that satisfies particular military or industrial requirements, various crude oil petroleum distillation products are commonly blended and refined into naphtha, petrol or kerosene.
  • Growth in Government Initiatives - A reduction in excise duty of about USD 0.9 per liter for petrol and approximately USD 0.076 per liter for diesel in India was announced by the government on May 21, 2022. Hence, the demand for petrol and diesel is estimated to boost. Moreover, the Indian government approved oil and gas projects in Northeast India totaling about USD 12 billion in September 2021. By 2025, these projects are expected to be finished.
  • Upsurge in Drilling Activities - Almost about 17 billion barrels of recoverable oil equivalent (Bboe) has been found from approximately 177 discoveries made by new-field wildcat drilling by the end of November 2022 across the globe.


  • Rising Price of Crude Oil - The fluctuating demand and supply of crude oil are to blame for the oil and gas sector's inflexibility in crude oil pricing. This variation considerably affects oilfield services market demand while also escalating rivalry between the United States, OPEC members, and non-OPEC nations. The increased price of oil causes investments and forthcoming projects to be delayed, which halts drilling projects and causes a decline in oilfield services. As a result, market expansion is expected to be hampered by crude oil price volatility.
  • Stringent Government Laws on E&P Activities
  • Surge in Use of Sustainable Alternative

Oilfield Services Segmentation

Application (Onshore, Offshore)

The global oilfield services market is segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by application into onshore, and offshore. Out of which, the onshore segment is anticipated to garner the highest revenue by the end of 2035. The growth of the segment can be attributed to growing exploration and production of onshore oil and gas. Forecasts indicate that in 2025, offshore production would account for about 27% of worldwide crude oil production, with onshore production accounting for the remaining approximately 73%. Hence, this segment is anticipated to have the highest growth owing to the fact that, the method of onshore production benefits the oil and gas sector greatly. Moreover, offshore drilling has various hazard to the environment. However, onshore fracking does have some environmental drawbacks, but the oil and gas sector is currently taking action at onshore sites that should assist protect the local surroundings where natural gas and oil production are taking place. Moreover, onshore drilling makes use of locally available shales as well as other resources that make drilling sites flexible and mobile, such as skids, which make it simple to move equipment from one location to another. This lowers the installation and transportation expenses that would otherwise be significantly greater for an offshore project.

Service (Geophysical, Drilling, Completion & Workover, Production, Processing & Separation)

The global oilfield services market is also segmented and analyzed for demand and supply by service into geophysical, drilling, completion & workover, production, and processing & separation. Amongst which, the drilling segment is anticipated to have the significant growth over the forecast period. To produce a well for the production of oil and natural gas, a hole is created using a directional drilling tool. Owing to the growing need for oil the services of drilling is growing extensively. Oil drilling lowers the pressure in subterranean oil reserves, which significantly lowers the amount of hydrocarbon seepage and methane gas in the atmosphere. Also, increased drilling operations, according to scientific theory, might continue to improve atmospheric and aquatic conditions. Hence, the segment is estimated to grow owing to these factors, further boosting the market growth.
