Market Analysis 

The global directional drilling market will develop at a 3.48% CAGR between 2017- 2023, states the recent Market Research Future (MRFR) analysis.

Directional drilling market, simply put, is targeted drilling that includes attacking wells from different angles and also to better access oil & gas reserves. It uses various instruments like drill bits, 3D measuring devices, whip stocks, and mud motors. Directional drilling also helps in the boring of several wells with the same vertical bore that reduces the environmental effects of the process. 

Various factors are propelling the global Directional Drilling Market. According to the recent MRFR report, such factors include the growing demand for onshore exploration activities, rapid economic development across the globe, high accuracy of these methods, decreasing extraction costs, increased efficiency, greater profits, tapping of unexplored oil reserves, and increased production of shale gas. 

On the contrary, contamination of groundwater reserves during leakages, the need for well-trained manpower and specialized equipment, high initial investment capital, and the current COVID-19 pandemic may deter the global directional drilling market growth over the forecast period. 

Market Segmentation 

The MRFR report highlights an inclusive segmental analysis of the global directional drilling market based on services, well type, and application. 

  • By application, the global directional drilling market is segmented into offshore and onshore. Of these, the onshore segment will lead the market over the forecast period as the onshore segment is witnessing an increase in new exploration activities along with more fields becoming mature. 
  • By well type, the global directional drilling market is segmented into extended reach wells, multilateral wells, and horizontal wells. Of these, the horizontal wells will dominate the market over the forecast period for their significance in higher production rate as well as exposure of greater wellbore length. 
  • By services, the global directional drilling market is segmented into motors, measurement while drilling (MWD), logging while drilling (LWD), and rotary steerable system. Of these, the LWD segment will spearhead the market over the forecast period for its perks in cost savings & acquiring the formation data.
