Report Summary

The global perforating gun market was valued at USD 1.06 billion in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period. The market's growth is primarily driven by significant investments in the fossil fuel industry across the globe. For instance, the oil prices rose by about 50% between 2020 and 2021; hence, the fossil fuel industry has become more attractive to investors.

The growth of the fossil fuel industry boosts demand for perforating guns to create openings in casings used in oil & gas well drilling. It provides effective flow communication among the cased well-bore and a productive reservoir. In addition, the global perforating gun market players are developing an advanced perforating gun that achieves greater efficiency in perforation systems and helps to lower the operating costs. The emergence of such perforating guns further fuels the growth of the global perforating guns market.

During Covid-19, the demand for perforating guns declined significantly during the pandemic due to the negative impact of the pandemic on oil & gas industry investments. For instance, according to the analysis by Accenture plc, an Ireland-based multinational professional services company, the oil & gas industry has cut over USD 150 billion of capital expenditure in 2020. In addition, the market has seen growth in pressure from investors to increase returns and enhance environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance. The Covid-19 pandemic caused a considerable decline in global oil & gas demand; however, this was a temporary scenario. The market is recovering and witnessing accelerating perforating gun growth in the post-pandemic period.

Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers
The rising energy demand around the globe has led to the exploration and production of oil & gas. As per the International Energy Agency (IEA), World Energy Outlook, unconventional oil production is anticipated to witness an upsurge from 1.8 mb/d in 2008 to 7.4 mb/d by 2030. This growth in exploration and production of unconventional oil & gas resources is projected to drive the development of the perforating gun market during the forecast period.

On the other hand, the desire among the countries to be self-sufficient and reduce the imports of oil & gas has further driven the growth of the global market. For instance, in February 2020, the Ministry of Petroleum and Natural Gas (India) announced a collaboration with different stakeholders to reduce the oil import bill. However, this strategy includes plans to increase domestic oil and gas production and improve energy productivity and efficiency.

Furthermore, companies operating in the oil & gas sector are trying to discover the oilfield in onshore and offshore regions. For instance, as per the study by BP Statistical Review of 2020, the world still had unexplored 1732 billion barrels of proven oil reserves by 2020. However, the leading countries in terms of oil reserves are ?Venezuela (17.5% of global resources), followed by Saudi Arabia (17.2%), and Canada (9.7%). This availability of proven oil reserves, along with the aggressive efforts by the companies to discover the oilfield in onshore and offshore regions, is expected to create lucrative growth opportunities for the global perforating gun market.

Insight by Gun Type

The tubing conveyed perforation system segment dominated the global market. The growth of this segment is mainly driven by its versatile nature as well as the high operational efficiency of such perforation gun systems. In addition, the proliferation of tubing-conveyed perforating (TCP) techniques for underbalanced wells in vertical and deviated applications further creates demand for tubing conveyed perforation system guns. Moreover, the market players are offering TCP perforation guns with advanced capabilities. This factor is further anticipated to fuel the growth of this segment.

Insight by Application

The offshore segment is expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period. This is attributed to the ongoing trend of extracting petroleum from reserves located beneath the Earth's oceans. In this application, perforating guns are used during the process of drilling a wellbore below the seabed. Due to the factors above, the governments of different countries are introducing plans to enhance their offshore drilling industry. This factor is opportunistic for the growth of the segment. For instance, the U.S. government introduced a 5-year plan to increase its offshore drilling capability in the country. This plan spanning from 2019 to 2024, is expected to boost the offshore drilling industry in the U.S.

Geographic Overview

Geographically, North America is the largest revenue contributor in the global perforating gun market due to growing drilling activities in North America amidst a rise in oil & gas prices. In addition, the U.S., Canadian, and Mexican governments are heavily investing in the upstream oil & gas industry to move toward self-sustainability and reduce imports. For instance, in January 2022, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) 2022 forecast predicted a 22% increase in oil and natural gas investment. The capital spending in the oil and gas industry is expected to grow by USD 6.0 billion to reach USD 32.8 billion in 2022, as compared with an estimated investment of about USD 26.9 billion, in 2021.
