Market Drivers and Restraints:

The global oil and gas industry is facing a number of challenges, including the impact of climate change on the industry. As a result, companies have been investing in alternative energy sources such as wind power. In addition to this, some companies are also looking at technology for better drilling operations such as Measurement While Drilling Market.

The growing need to monitor the wellbore conditions during the drilling process to reduce the risk of drilling and casing failure is expected to drive the market for MWD globally. The growth of the Global Measurement While Drilling market can be attributed to Increasing oil & gas production, increasing shale gas production, and increasing drilling activities in unconventional reservoirs.

Eruption of the COVID-19 Pandemic to Diminish Global Energy Demand

While the long-term prospects for the global energy sector are promising, the coronavirus outbreak has thwarted the growth trajectory of this market in 2020. Governments in most countries have imposed nationwide lockdowns, which has brought production activities to a grinding halt and has deflated the demand for fossil fuel-driven energy generation. The Global Energy Review report published by the IEA has revealed that world energy demand is set to fall by 6% in 2020, which is equal to the loss of the entire energy demand of India, the world’s third largest energy consumer.

Further, developed economies are slated to experience the steepest decline, with the US set to witness a 9% fall and the European Union (EU) a fall of 11% during this year. Moreover, the IEA’s calculations show that worldwide lockdown is bringing down global energy demand by 1.5% each month, which will prove fatal for the measurement while drilling market growth. This is because the demand for hydrocarbon-based energy is critically dependent on a wide variety of economic activities, especially in urban areas.

Regional Analysis

Shale Gas Revolution to Augment the Market in North America

North America generated USD 0.67 billion in revenue in 2019 and is envisaged to dominate the measurement while drilling market share in the coming years, primarily owing to the discovery of shale gas in the region. However, the COVID-19 infection has crippled economic activity in the US, thus severely impacting energy demand and hampering the market growth in the region for 2020. The strongest economies of Europe – UK, France, Italy, and Germany – are battling the coronavirus through lockdowns and curtailed business activities, thus stymieing the growth of the market in the continent. Similarly, the rapid economic growth in India has been stalled by this pandemic, forcing the country to go under lockdown, which is expected to have challenging ramifications for the global energy industry in 2020.
