According to a new report published by Allied Market Research titled, “Coiled Tubing Market by Operation, Location, Application and End-Use: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030,” the coiled tubing market size was valued at $3.0 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $4.7 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 4.5% from 2021 to 2030. Coiled tubing is the continuously manufactured tubular product usually made up of steel and is flexible enough to be coiled onto a large reel. Coiled tubing unit consists of number of necessary equipment including reel, injector head, control cabin, power pack, well control stack assembly, and others. It is commonly used in the operations such as cleaning wellbore, fishing operations, stimulation of new & existing wells, drilling, production, and well intervention services. Key benefits associated with coiled tubing technology are safe & efficient live well operation, rapid mobilization, less production time, reduced manpower, cost reduction, and others.
Significant development of the end-use industries such as oil & gas, mining, manufacturing, construction, automotive, and others, fuels the demand for oil &gas for their various operations, which in turn is expected to drive the growth of the coiled tubing market. In addition, rise in investment toward horizontal drilling and offshore oil & gas exploration &production drives the growth of the market, globally. However, implementation of stringent government regulations toward environmental pollution from combustion of oil & gas and rapid development of the electric vehicle sector are the key factors hampering the growth of the global market in the upcoming years.
Depending on the operation, the pumping segment held the highest market share of about 36.1% in 2020, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the coiled tubing market forecast period. This is owing to rise in demand for coiled tubing from variety of fluid pumping operations such as oil well cementing, pressure testing, solvent pumping, acidizing treatments and others. In addition, there is an increase in need for acid pumping operation, to open the pores of limestone layers, which drives the growth of the market during the forecast period.
On the basis of location, the onshore segment holds the largest share, in terms of revenue, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to rise in demand for oil & gas and related products led to increase in the demand for coiled tubing. In addition, rise in onshore sites propels the market growth, as onshore sites are easily operatable and it takes less years for production in comparison to offshore. Moreover, 70.0% of the world’s oil &gas come from onshore sites, which notably contribute toward the growth of the coiled tubing market during the forecast period.
On the basis of application, the well intervention segment holds the largest share, in terms of revenue, and is expected to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This growth is attributed to rise in demand for oil &gas products across the globe in various end use applications including building & construction, transportation, power generation, and others increases the demand for well intervention services to enhance the production of operational and abandoned oil & gas wells.
On the basis of region, the market is analyzed across four major regions such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. North America garnered the dominant share in 2020, and is anticipated to maintain this dominance in coiled tubing market trend during the forecast period. This is attributed to the presence of key players and huge consumer base in the region.
In addition, recent developments of shale oil reserves in the region are further projected to fuel the growth of the coiled tubing market during the analyzed time frame. The huge production and exportation of oil anticipated to fuel the demand for coiled tubing services, which in turn is projected to fuel the growth of the market in the upcoming years.

COVID-19 impact on the market
The global coiled tubing market has witnessed steady growth in 2020, owing to outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic. The outbreak has negatively impacted various industries and countries, thereby decreasing manpower across the globe, which, in turn, decreased consumer spending and thus, decreased the demand for oil & gas products, vehicles, construction equipment and others which is resulted in hampering the coiled tubing market growth. However, owing to the lockdown imposed across the globe, there is supply-demand gap, which resulted in halt in supply for equipment used in coiled tubing production. In Europe, economies, such as Germany, France, Spain, and Italy, were following stringent measures, such as maintaining social distance and limiting movements, to prevent the spread of coronavirus. Moreover, such safety measures have been witnessed across the globe, which further impacted the growth of the global market.
