Major Driver Impacting Market Growth

An increase in the number of exploratory wells is expected to propel the growth of the offshore drilling rigs market. Exploratory wells are deep test holes dug by oil and gas exploration companies both onshore and offshore to uncover proven reserves of recoverable gas and oil. For instance, in March 2021, according to a press release published by RYSTAD Energy, a Norway-based independent energy research and business intelligence company, offshore drilling activity is expected to increase year on year by about 10% in both 2021 and 2022. This will bring the number of offshore wells drilled to nearly 2,500 in 2021, from less than 2,300 in 2020, and forecast that the corresponding number for 2022 will surpass 2,700. Therefore, the increase in the number of exploratory wells is driving the growth of the offshore drilling rigs market.
