Market Overview

The North America wireline services market is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 3% during the forecast period of 2020 – 2025. Factors such as increased new discoveries and increased investment in the offshore sector are expected to drive the market for wireline services. However, the volatile nature of oil prices in recent years is expected to decrease the exploration activity in the coming years causing a slowdown for the North America wireline services market.

  • The onshore segment is expected to have a maximum share in the market. Onshore drilling encompasses all the drilling sites located on dry land and accounts for over 70% of worldwide oil production.
  • The increasing exploration activity in the region to compensate for aging mature oil and gas fields and rising production from shale plays is expected to offer significant opportunities for the wireline logging service providers in the region.
  • The United States is expected to dominate the market, owing to the increased drilling activity in shale plays. The recent development of shale plays, horizontal drilling, and fracking have resulted in an increase in demand for wireline services in the country.

Key Market Trends

Onshore Segment to Dominate the Market

  • The global market for wireline services saw a growth slowdown owing to the volatile oil prices in recent years, but with the oil prices becoming stable the market is expected to show growth during the forecasted period.
  • Onshore oil production in the United States accounts for around 90% of total oil production by the country in 2018. Increased onshore exploration activity worldwide in the forecasted period is expected to help grow the market for wireline services.
  • With most of the shale plays being in onshore in the region, the oil production from tight shale and sandstone formation in the United States reached a whopping 6.5 million barrels per day in 2018, which is 59% of the total crude oil production of the country.
  • As the crude oil prices are stabilizing, the upstream investment is expected to grow significantly and bring several projects online, thereby, driving the market.

The United States to Dominate the Market

  • The United States is expected to maintain its dominance in the region in the forecast period, owing to the increased drilling and completion activities in shale plays, over the recent past, and recovery of oil prices in the oil and gas market.
  • Another driving force that is expected to promulgate the demand for wireline services is the advancements in shale technology. According to the United States Geological Survey (USGS), over 46 billion barrels of oil, 280 trillion cubic feet of gas, and 20 billion barrels of natural gas liquids are trapped in the low-permeability shale formations of the United States.
  • Unconventional resources led to a revolution in the US energy industry, bringing with it the growing energy independence, an enormous economic windfall, and a stronger geopolitical position through the burgeoning exports in both oil and gas (LNG).
  • As of April 2019, 8,390 drilled wells are incomplete in the country, with the Permian basin having the largest share. These wells are expected to be completed in the coming years, creating ample opportunity for wireline services.
  • Therefore, the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the market in forecast period, similar to the trend witnessed in recent years.
