Shallow Depth SURF Market Size

Shallow Depth SURF Market Size was evaluated at USD 2.8 billion in 2023 and is projected to observe a growth rate of 6.4% from 2024 to 2032. Rapidly growing overall energy consumption, expanding rate of industrialization and urbanization, and rapid economic growth across the emerging as well as developed economies will complement the industry outlook. Moreover, fast-paced growth across different hydrocarbon dependent verticals including transportation, power generation, petrochemicals, and manufacturing, among others will further boost the business dynamics.

Shallow Depth SURF Market

Offshore exploration and production (E&P) in the oil and gas sector have evolved significantly over the years, driven by technological advancements, economic factors, regulatory changes, and shifting energy dynamics. In addition, innovations in subsea processing operations including improved recovery rates along with the use of digital technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, and the Internet of Things (IoT), to optimize operations and enhance safety with reduced cost structure has propelled significant transitions in offshore exploration & production activities, thereby catering to the shallow depth subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) industry growth.

Shallow Depth SURF Market Trends

Shallow Depth Subsea Umbilicals, Risers and Flowlines (SURF) market is set to observe a significant growth as the equipment are essential for offshore hydrocarbon exploration & production and is dynamically driven by technological innovations. Moreover, rising investment in projects at different water depths to easily access reserves coupled with mounting investments in both exploration and maintenance of existing infrastructure will boost the industry landscape. For instance, in May 2024, the U.S. Energy Information Administration (EIA) reported that the average monthly crude oil production from the federal U.S. Gulf of Mexico reserves totaled over 1.86 million barrels per day (mbpd) in 2023 rising from 1.73 mbpd in 2022 experiencing annual increment of about 7.7%.

Shallow Depth SURF Market Analysis

Shallow Depth SURF Market Size, By Product, 2022 - 2032 (USD Billion)

Based on product, the market is primarily segregated into umbilicals, riser, and flowline. Shallow depth flowline products are set to surpass USD 2.4 billion by 2032 on account of the increasing adoption of advanced systems with the integration of sensors & digital technologies to enable enhanced hydrocarbon recovery. Moreover, continuous identification and assessment of potential risks in flowlines with the implementation of real-time monitoring to support the replacement of faulty products will complement the subsea flowlines industry growth.

For instance, in September 2023, Oman based Masirah Oil announced to resume operations on the Yumna-3 well after resolving a leak from a flexible flowline. The new equipment is deployed to play a pivotal role in transferring oil to Yumna’s floating, storage, and offloading unit from its mobile offshore production unit.

Middle East & Africa Shallow Depth SURF Market Size, 2022 - 2032 (USD Billion)

Middle East & Africa shallow depth SURF market is projected to cross USD 2.4 billion by 2032.
