The rapid escalation in the energy consumption rate has fostered the discovery and production of offshore oil & gas wells, which could become a prominent driver for the market growth. According to the U.S. BOEM (Bureau of Ocean Energy Management), the country’s overall federal offshore production reached around 641 million barrels of oil and 882 billion cubic feet of gas in the financial year 2020. This accounted for close to 15% of the overall domestic outcome.

Exploration of new offshore reserves with substantial output capacities

The discovery of new reserves coupled with the abundance of unexplored hydrocarbon resources across ultra-deep, deep, and shallow offshore locations has resulted in new exploration & production (E&P) activities, thus proliferating the demand for umbilical market. For instance, in April 2022, oil & gas major ExxonMobil announced the launch of three new offshore reserves in Guyana with an overall recoverable volume equivalent to 11 billion oil barrels.

The Europe umbilical market size is anticipated to register commendable growth during 2022 to 2028, due to a rise in offshore activities in the North Sea. Surging explorations of new reserves in addition to supportive administrative regulations by different national governments will further stimulate the regional industry growth. For instance, in January 2022, Norway’s Ministry of Petroleum and Energy announced the extension of its APA 2021 (Award in Pre-Defined Areas 2021) program to improve the discovery activities across the national continental shelf and exhibit 53 new production licenses to 28 companies.

Increased focus on strategic partnerships from prominent players to boost business landscape

Top companies operating in the industry are TechnipFMC plc, Vallourec, Oceaneering International, Inc., Aker Solutions, John Wood Group, Plc, Saipem, McDermott, Schlumberger Limited, NOV, Inc., Prysmian Group, Subsea 7, HALLIBURTON, Baker Hughes Company, and Nexans.

Some key manufacturers are entering strategic partnerships to expand their business footprint. For instance, in June 2022, Aker Solutions announced a collaboration with Vår Energi to provide subsea production solutions and systems over the next five years. The partnership will encompass all operating assets and initiatives across the NCS (Norwegian Continental Shelf) owned by Vår Energi.

Impact of COVID-19 on Umbilical Market

The COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on the oil & gas sector. Many countries are highly dependent on oil exports from countries like Russia, and Gulf nations. However, the pandemic disrupted the global supply chain, creating an energy crisis across the world that resulted in increased prices. Stringent lockdowns caused nationwide shutdowns of subsea production facilities, impacting production volumes, which may have created roadblocks for the industry.

According to an impact analysis from Rystad Energy, the demand for umbilical lines expected to decline by nearly 32% in 2020, as a result of the devastating impact of the COVID-19 crisis on global energy investments. Furthermore, as the disruptions from the pandemic continue to recede and oil & gas activities improve, the industry could be headed toward gradual recovery in the forthcoming years.
