Global outlook of the oil and gas logistics market

According to Technavio’s market research analysis, the global oil and gas logistics market is projected to grow at a CAGR of more than 6% during the predicted period.  The surge in offshore oil and gas exploration and production activities is one of the primary growth drivers for this market.  Exploration and production (E&P) activity is an upstream process in the oil and gas industry, and includes procedures such as locating oil rigs, searching for oil and petrochemical products, underwater drilling for natural gas and crude oil fields and operating subsea vessels. The vessel operators and owners of oil and gas fields work with various contractors such as engineering procurement and construction (EPC) contractors and oil rig companies for the procurement of underwater natural resources. The exploration of several new shale oil fields and subsequent increase in the E&P expenditure of oil and gas production companies will result in a robust demand for logistics services. Besides transporting offshore minerals and energy resources, the marine sea vessels also perform marine logistics services, while the increase in the number of offshore oil rigs will also augment the growth prospects for this market.

One of the latest trends that this market is witnessing is the provision of high-end logistics and supply chain solutions. Shippers are opting for contract logistics providers that offer a one-stop solution and avoid the tediousness associated with outsourcing different tasks to different vendors. Several oil and gas companies outsource these logistics services to contract logistics service providers because they are more specialized in providing these services and also use upgraded technologies. In addition, through outsourcing these services, users of contract logistics are able to serve their customers more efficiently.

Segmentation by transportation type and analysis of the oil and gas logistics market

  • Pipeline
  • Railroads
  • Tanker and trucks

During 2015, the pipeline segment constituted the largest share in the oil and gas logistics market and occupied around 66% of the total market share. Pipelines are the most-used transportation ways to move petroleum and refined petroleum products. The overall expense to transport crude oil or petroleum products by pipeline is a fraction of the cost of other modes of transportation, which has made it a preferred medium for transportation. The global oil and gas logistics market by pipeline transportation is likely to surpass USD 8 billion by 2020.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the oil and gas logistics market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

The Americas will continue to dominate the oil and gas logistics market during the forecast period and is anticipated to hold more than 38% of the total market share by 2020. The Americas is one of the key markets for global natural gas production in terms of revenue generation, where the US is the major revenue contributing country. Much of this region’s growth comes from the availability of large reserves, financial support, energy security concerns, and technological advancements in logistics services related to gas storage and upstream logistics support. Also, several governments across the region are also focusing on natural gas storage and its export to developed nations, which will further boost the growth prospects for this market in the coming years. With the growth in unconventional hydrocarbon reserves, the Americas is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 7% during the predicted period.
