Market Overview

The Asia-Pacific floating production systems market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 10% during the forecast period of 2020 – 2025. Factors such as increased offshore exploration activity and focus on development of offshore oil and gas production, are expected to help drive the market for floating production systems. However, the high cost of FPS systems combined with the volatile nature of oil prices has hampered the growth of the market.

  • Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) make up the largest share of the floating production systems market, because of its additional function of storing produced oil. FPSO dominates the market with over 60% of the market share, and over 39 FPSO present in the region as of July 1, 2018.
  • The demand for oil and gas production has always been on an increase, which has led to increased exploration activities offshore. This, in turn, is expected to help grow the market in the forecast period.
  • China is anticipated to dominate the market due to widespread development and production from offshore fields in various regions like East China Sea, Western South China Sea, Eastern South China Sea, Bohai, etc.

Key Market Trends

Floating Production, Storage and Offloading (FPSO) to Dominate the Market

  • FPSO are the most popular floating production system because of its additional feature of storing and offloading produced crude oil. This have led FPSO’s to have over 60% of the market share which is expected to grow in the forecast period.
  • FPSO provides the capability of long distances movement, which provides the operator a chance to using it over different regions and fields over its life.
  • China has 13 operating and 3 FPSO under construction as of July 1, 2018, which makes it the country with biggest FPSO fleet in the region, Australia comes in second place with 9 operating and 2 under construction FPSO.
  • The increasing energy demand is expected to drive the floating production systems market during the coming decade, as the new exploration activity is at an all-time high and the operators are often forced to work in much deeper waters, which require sophisticated technology and equipment, and also need the capability of storage and offloading oil, thereby helping drive the FPSO market.

China to Dominate the Market

  • China is expected to maintain its dominance in floating production system market in the region in forecast period. This is the same trend as has been seen in recent years, due to heavy investments by the country in offshore oil and gas fields.
  • The offshore oil & gas industry is expected to witness massive investments between 2020-2025. China National Offshore Oil Corporation (CNOOC) invested USD 11.46 billion in 2019 and is expected to invest somewhere between USD 12.34 billion to USD 13.79 billion in 2020. 
  • CNOOC has estimated oil production from offshore fields to be well above 555 million BOE in 2021 and 590 million BOE in 2022. This comes with the obvious growth in floating production system in the country.
  • Therefore, factors such as rising oil and gas investments along with development and exploration of new plays and projects in the region are expected to give a growth to the floating production systems market in the forecasted period.
