Global Drill Collar Market: Trends & Opportunities
Escalating drilling activities across the world, be it for extraction or exploration of oil and natural gas, is the primary driver of the market. In particular, shale gas is quickly gaining popularity in order to decrease the dependency on oil and gas as well as preserve the environment. Many more wells are expected to start production during the forecast period and thereby increase the demand for drill collar, especially in Canada. Increased investments in deep and ultra-deep water reserve, which have emerged as resources with enormous potential, will further increment the demand. The report observes that offshore deep and ultra-deep water is mostly untouched as the companies were restricted to shallow water reserves until now. Government incentives for alternative energy exploration across several nations is another factor favouring the growth rate.
