Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Ram BOP Market size is anticipated to reach USD 45 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 3% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of ram BOP was over USD 32 Billion. A significant increase in global energy demand has been driven by a growing population, as well as consistent industrial development. As per statistics, the world's oil consumption rises between 3% and 10% by 2030 and between 6% and 42% by 2050 as compared to 2022. Consequently, the need for energy security has become paramount and oil and gas companies are increasingly encouraged to take advantage of their unexploited hydrocarbon resources. Moreover, oil and gas production maximize the income generated in these areas. The resulting increase in upstream investment will lead to an expansion of the global market for ram BOP, supported by strict regulation.

Additionally, a sizeable portion of the total cost incurred during the manufacturing of ram BOP is attributable to raw materials, such as basic steel. Therefore, the ram BOP market will be significantly impacted by worldwide changes in steel pricing. The cost of producing BOP is falling significantly along with the price of steel. Consequently, the decrease in the price of raw materials would boost the earnings of ram BOP producers, which is anticipated to positively affect the expansion of the market as a whole.

Ram BOP Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • Technological Advancements- The use of cutting-edge blowout preventer technology, like double Ram BOPs and remote-operated BOP systems, is increasing in the ram BOP market. With the improved control and monitoring capabilities provided by these technologies, operators can react promptly to any possible problems with control. The performance of Ram BOPs is also anticipated to be further optimized by the incorporation of digital technologies like artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. Increased operational efficiency and safety result from this integration's ability to provide real-time monitoring, predictive maintenance, next generation memory, and data analytics.
  • Emerging Trends- The growing use of remote monitoring and control systems is expected to present future growth prospects for the industry. Modern technologies enable control and monitoring systems that operate in real-time. By enabling real-time BOP performance monitoring, these cutting-edge solutions improve offshore drilling operations' efficiency and safety. Growing environmental concerns have also brought eco-friendly BOP designs with characteristics like better sealing mechanisms and lower emissions into sharper emphasis. Furthermore, the industry is seeing a trend in favor of the creation of BOPs that are small and light to facilitate drilling rig installation and transportation.
  • Stringent Safety Regulations- Stringent safety and environmental regulations imposed by governments and industry bodies have propelled the demand for Ram BOPs. These regulations ensure that drilling operations adhere to strict safety standards, minimizing the risk of blowouts and catastrophic accidents. As a result, operators and drilling contractors are investing in high-quality Ram BOPs to comply with these regulations, driving the market growth.


  • Environmental Concerns- The increasing focus on sustainable drilling practices and environmental protection has led to a shift towards alternative energy sources. This transition may reduce the demand for conventional oil and gas drilling, restricting the ram BOP market’s growth.
  • Fluctuations in oil prices directly impact explorations and may slow down drilling operation, which in turn affects the demand for Ram BOPs.
  • The adoption of new technologies by operators and drilling contractors is comparatively slow due to cost considerations, operational disruptions, or a lack of familiarity.

Ram BOP Segmentation

Application (Onshore, Offshore)

The offshore segment is expected to hold 56% share of the global ram BOP market by 2036. There has been an increase in offshore exploration and production (E&P) activity recently due to the expanding number of mature onshore. As observed by Research Nester Analysts, in 2019, offshore oil production was over 27 million barrels. To fulfill the rising demand, the oil and gas sector is consequently turning its attention to deeper locations in quest of oil and gas. The demand for ram BOPs is thus projected to increase during the forecast period as a result of the increased deepwater offshore project development to satisfy the rising crude oil consumption

Type (Blind Ram, Shear Ram, Pipe Ram, Variable-Bore Ram)

Ram BOP market from the shear ram segment is estimated to garner the majority revenue share. The growth of the shear ram segment can be attributed to several factors. There is a growing emphasis on safety and well control in the oil and gas industry. Shear Ram plays a critical role in preventing blowouts and ensuring the safety of drilling operations. The increasing awareness and implementation of stringent safety regulations have led to a higher demand for shear rams. Further, technological advancements have improved the performance and reliability of shear Rams. Manufacturers are continuously innovating to develop more efficient and effective cutting technologies, enhancing the shear ram’s ability to quickly and effectively seal off the wellbore, thus augmenting the segment’s growth.

In The News

  • Petrobras take home the 2024 OTC Brasil Distinguished Achievement Award for a newly constructed well and intervention development. This allows for the replacement of tethered rigs with more contemporary DP rigs by combining a BOP with real-time riser analysis. When compared to typical rigs, the company claims that this technology reduces costs and emissions by 99% and shortens the period of interventions in shallow-water wells by seven days. It also lessens the impact of anchoring on the seabed. After adjusting with the BOP anchored for this purpose, it should enable rigs operating in deepwater regions to also function in shallow water, particularly crowded or environmentally sensitive offshore areas.
  • Pelican Energy Partners ("Pelican"), in collaboration with Keith Klopfenstein and Gus Halas, has completed an investment in Axon Pressure Products, Inc. ("Axon"), a stand-alone producer and supplier of pressure control equipment, including BOPs, flow control equipment, and BOP controls.
