Oil & Gas Security Market Outlook: 2023

The Oil & Gas Security Market was valued at $ 23,141 million in 2016, and is projected to reach $36,012 million by 2023, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2017 to 2023. The security of the operational technology (OT) such as supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) and distributed control system (DCS) of the infrastructure of the oil & gas industry from cyber-attacks and data theft is known as oil & gas security. The increase in cyber-attacks on the OT of oil & gas companies increases the requirement for security in the market. The protection from various cyber threats and data security breaches are the major advantages. However, huge capital cost and the constant demand for security upgrade are the disadvantages of the system.

The increased expenditure by the oil & gas companies on network & OT security and increased trend of security & vulnerability management boosts the growth of the oil & gas security market. In addition, growth in trend of bring your own device (BYOD) and political chaos in the Middle East also fuels the market growth. Increase in regulatory compliances, which challenges the technical implementation restrains the market growth. Rise in adoption of Internet of Things (IoT) and demand for security-as-a-service (SaaS) create ample opportunities in the market. Lack of awareness about oil & gas security, difficulties in implementation of cyber security for complicated OT, and the vulnerabilities associated with cloud technologies challenge the growth of the oil & gas security market

Oil & Gas Security Market

Rise in Cyber-threats in the Oil & Gas Sector

The increase in digitization in the oil & gas industry is giving rise to cyber-attacks such as denial of service, malware, and phishing. Globally, cyber-attacks in the oil & gas sector have caused massive disruptions to the entire network including upstream, midstream, and downstream processes. Further, the various types of cyber-attacks such as insider misuse, cyber espionage, web application attacks, denial of service, physical risk/loss of property, and payment card skimmers have affected the oil & gas industry Most enterprises are implementing effective security solutions such as intrusion prevention, access control, and incident response to combat them.

Security Issues Linked to Cloud Software Deployment

Most enterprises are deploying software on cloud, which poses a high risk to the data stored in the oil & gas industry. Even though the benefits of deploying the software on cloud is high, there are security issues linked to this deployment model. Cloud model is entirely dependent on the internet and therefore is prone to outages and service interruptions at any time. In a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model of a cloud environment, the end users use the services provided by the cloud providers without knowing accurately where the resources for such services are located.

Rise in Investments in the Oil & Gas Sector Especially in Emerging Regions

The Middle Eastern region is generously endowed with oil & gas resources. At the end of 2001, the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region accounted for about 69 percent of 1,050 billion barrels of the established petroleum reserves. The US$25 billion Saudi Gas Initiative, which aimed to integrate upstream gas development with downstream petrochemicals and power generation is expected to raise the Middle Eastern gas output within the coming years. Shell Exploration & Production (E&P) is also serving a regional boom in upstream activity, with major ongoing projects in Saudi Arabia, Oman, Egypt, Qatar, Kuwait, Libya, and Syria.
