Growing Application of Big Data Analytics in Oil and Gas Industry to Boost the Market

Widening fields of application of big data analytics are expected to fuel the global digital oilfield market revenue in the forecast period. According to a report by IBM, utilizing big data tools such as Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) in oil and gas exploration activities can significantly enhance overall business performance. Most importantly, it would raise the decision-making quality as huge amounts of data can be collected and analysed in a considerably shorter time period. Cost and time-effective actions will increase the demand for digital oilfield systems and expand the global digital oilfield market size.

North America and Europe to Dominate the Market; Middle East and Latin America to Exhibit Impressive Growth

Countries in the Middle East such as Saudi Arabia and Latin America such as Venezuela are known to have some of the largest oil reserves in the world. Therefore, these regions are experiencing a high adoption rate of digital oilfield technology, accelerating the global digital oilfield market size. North America is expected to hold a dominant portion of the global digital oilfield market share in the coming decade owing to shale gas exploration activities by the US. In Europe, energy exploration in the North Sea by the UK, Norway, and Germany is anticipated to bolster the demand for digital oilfield technology in the region. Indonesia, China, and India are increasingly implementing digital oilfield systems as their on-shore and off-shore exploration activities advance.

Collaborations and Innovations to Energize Market Competition

The global digital oilfield market competition is expected to be characterized by increasing innovations and strategic collaborations among major players. For example, in February 2019, Petrolink launched a software solution, Manage by Exception (MBE), in Houston, designed to aid drill managers to prioritize the large volumes of alerts sent out by the system. With regard to collaborations, recently, Rockwell Automations and Schlumberger partnered to create Sensia, an automated solution provider that is fully digitally integrated.
