The global offshore support vessel market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.92%, from 2017 to 2022, to reach a market size of USD 20.15 Billion by 2022. This growth is attributed to increasing focus on oil & gas production at offshore fields, particularly activities in deepwater reserves.

The report segments the offshore support vessel market, on the basis of type, into anchor handling tug supply (AHTS) vessels, platform supply vessels (PSV), multi-purpose supply vessels (MPSV), standby and rescue vessels, crew vessels, chase vessels, seismic vessels, and others. The AHTS vessels segment accounted for the largest market share in 2016, driven by demand from Asia-Pacific, North America, and the Middle East. The market for offshore supply vessels, especially AHTS vessels and PSVs, is heavily oversupplied and there is a need to address this imbalance on the supply side in order to improve utilization and vessel rates in the current low oil price environment.

The report also segments the offshore support vessel market, on the basis of the water depth in which these vessels are utilized, into shallow water and deepwater. The shallow water segment was the largest market and is projected to maintain its edge over the deepwater segment owing to its lower operational costs. As soon as oil prices recover, shallow water projects will be the first to see improved demand for vessels. However, the deepwater sector will continue to make a significant contribution to the market and the quest for large new reserves in deepwater fields will help demand for offshore support vessels.

In this report, the offshore support vessel market has been categorized, on the basis of region, into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Latin America and the Caribbean, West & South Africa, and the rest of the world. The North American market led the offshore support vessel market, with the largest market share, by value, in 2016, and the trend is projected to continue till 2022. The market in Asia-Pacific will also play an important role in driving demand for offshore support vessels.

The Middle East is a fast growing market for offshore support vessels during the forecasted period. This growth is due to the increasing focus on offshore assets in major oil producing nations, such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, and U.A.E., in view of new gas discoveries offshore and in order to replace production from mature onshore fields.

Offshore Support Vessel Market

The low price of crude oil in the international market is a restraint for the offshore support vessel market. The continuing downturn in oil prices has resulted in large-scale cut backs in exploration and production spending by major oil companies around the world. Costly offshore projects are being given a second thought, keeping in mind the prevailing scenario. However, production activities are continuing across North America, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, and the Middle East, and on a lower scale in regions such as Europe and West Africa. Also, long-term projects are expected to remain on track with expectations of price recoveries in the closing years of the decade.

The leading players in the industry, based on their recent developments and other strategic industrial activities, are Bourbon Corporation SA (France), Farstad Shipping ASA (Norway), Seacor Marine, LLC (U.S.), Swire Group, Ltd. (Hong Kong), Tidewater, Inc. (U.S.), Gulfmark Offshore, Inc. (U.S.), Havila Shipping ASA (Norway), Hornbeck Offshore Services, Inc. (U.S.), The Maersk Group (Denmark), and Siem Offshore, Inc. (Norway), among others.

In terms of growth strategies, market players have been focussing on winning large numbers of contracts & agreements to increase their market size and strengthen their market foothold in the regional market. In view of the tough market conditions due to the oil price slump and large scale oversupply of vessels in the market, competition for contracts has intensified and has led to a race towards the bottom for day rates. There is a mix of both organic and inorganic growth strategies that companies are using to stay relevant in the market. In Europe and elsewhere market consolidation is bound to take place as companies band together through mergers & acquisitions to maintain their financial health and reduce price wars.
