Offshore Mooring Market Overview:
In 2015, the global offshore mooring market was valued at $1,037 million and is expected to witness a steady growth to reach $1,408 million by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period. A mooring system comprise mooring lines, mooring anchor, and connectors, which are installed on the vessels to facilitate the station keeping away from the floatation platforms. The emergence of this technology has addressed the need for floating production storage & offloading (FPSOs) and production facilities in deep-water and ultra-deep-water projects. It has outpaced the conventional technology of temporary anchors by use of synthetic mud ropes, which have now become a standard in oil & gas industry.
Increasing applications of offshore mooring in floating production storage and offloading (FPSOs) and semi submersibles is expected to fuel the mooring market growth. Moreover, growth in demand for energy and surge in offshore exploration and production further drive the offshore mooring market. These factors are expected to have a positive impact on the offshore mooring market owing to increase in maturity of onshore oil and gas fields that could lead to offshore exploration and production. Some of the restraints associated with the offshore mooring market are high initial CAPEX and harsh environmental conditions in the sea.
Top impacting factors
The increase in demand for energy, clean electricity and maturity of onshore oil and gas fields have a significant impact on the market. In addition, the increase in use of FPSOs (Floating, Production, Storage, and Offloading) and FLNGs create opportunities for the market growth. However, high initial investments in offshore field exploration could restrict the growth of the market.
TOP IMPACTING FACTORS
Increasing Demand For Energy And Clean Electricity
Upsurge in demand for energy has fueled the offshore mooring market. Oil & gas segment is used in essential services such as power generation and transportation fuels. Since, the demand for energy is driven by increasing population and purchasing power of individuals in developing economies, it is anticipated to increase by 14% with 70% requirements from Asia (mostly China) due to the region’s robust economic growth. Therefore, increasing demand for energy and clean electricity is estimated to propel the growth of the offshore mooring market.
Maturity of Onshore Oil and Gas fields
The gradual reduction of onshore reserves has led to increase in offshore field exploration and rise in offshore mooring market. This is a significant impacting factor which creates opportunity for the market growth.
Emergence of FPSO
Offshore mooring is expected to grow due to emergence of FPSOs (Floating, Production, Storage, and Offloading) , since these use offshore mooring to keep the drilling hole in position. However, major challenge in offshore mooring systems is to place the anchor in right position so that hole is at right position at all times. Therefore, the need for FPSOs to float and produce oil has propelled the demand for offshore mooring.
High initial investments
Offshore exploration and production companies are expected to see continued growth in exploration and spending on the production of new mooring systems. Initial investments are high in exploration and production, which leads to high investment in offshore mooring.
Increasing sub-sea drilling activities in African countries
African countries have high potential for oil & gas exploration and production resulting in growth of offshore mooring systems. According to Deloitte, large amount of hydrocarbons are reserved in East Africa that need technological advancements to induce the growth of offshore mooring market in the region.
Top Winning Strategies
The global offshore mooring industry is largely driven by partnership, agreement, merger, and acquisition strategy.
TOP KEY STRATEGIES
Top investment pockets
At present, FPSOs have witnessed large-scale adoption of offshore mooring due to increasing demands for energy. Moreover, increasing offshore exploration and production fostered the need for offshore mooring.
The FPSOS and FDPSOs are expected to have the highest offshore market share as these applications possess larger market size by value.
Other developing applications such as FLNGs and spar platforms are expected to witness steady growth while conductor support systems, fixed platform, and compliant towers are at nascent stage.
