Offshore Support Vessel (OSV) Market Size, Share, Growth Analysis, and Forecast 2028

Offshore Support Vessel (OSV) Market Size, and Share

The global Offshore Support Vessel Market size is projected to reach USD 31.4 billion by 2028 from USD 22.6 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 6.7% according to a new report by MarketsandMarkets™. An offshore support vessel (OSV) is specially designed to support offshore exploration, drilling, production, and construction activities in the oil & gas industry. These vessels provide a range of services, such as transportation of personnel, equipment and supplies, maintenance and repair, and oil spill response. The market growth of OSVs is driven by substantial investments in the offshore oil & gas and renewable sectors. The rise in deepwater activities and the decommissioning of aging offshore infrastructure present promising opportunities for the osv market. However, the volatility of crude oil prices has hindered the growth of the market in recent years, leading to an oversupply of vessels. As a result, this is expected to restrain the market’s growth during the forecast period.

The offshore oil & gas industry is expected to be the largest segment in the offshore support Vessel market.

This report segments the offshore support Vessel (osv) market based on end-user industry into two segments: offshore oil & gas and offshore wind. The offshore oil & gas segment is expected to be the largest segment during the forecast period. Offshore support vessels are purposefully designed to provide essential support services for a wide range of oil and gas operations. They play a crucial role in supporting offshore drilling rigs and oil-producing assets, including production platforms and FPSO units. These vessels are instrumental in facilitating pipe laying activities and the decommissioning of offshore rigs. In the oil and gas sector, particularly in regions like the North Sea, where a significant number of platforms, pipelines, and wells are expected to undergo decommissioning by 2040, the demand for offshore support vessels is projected to be substantial.

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest region in the offshore support Vessel industry

Asia Pacific is expected to be the largest offshore support Vessel market during the forecast period. The Asia Pacific region, comprising major economies such as China, India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand, is witnessing a significant focus on expanding offshore exploration and production (E&P) capital expenditures (CAPEX). According to Scottish Development International, the region is expected to account for approximately 25% of global spending on new offshore developments, highlighting its crucial role in the offshore industry. Policymakers in Asia Pacific are placing emphasis on advancing offshore activities in deep and ultra-deep waters, marking a strategic shift in the region. Prominent offshore projects in the region include Australia’s Briseis, Scarborough, and Laverda projects, Malaysia’s Rotan, Gumusut-Kakap, and Petai projects, India’s KG-D6 complex, and Indonesia’s Gehem project. Furthermore, the region is witnessing an increase in the number of offshore support vessels, with a growing presence of vessel manufacturers, particularly from China and South Korea. In February 2021, China National Offshore Oil Corporation unveiled its business strategy for the year, outlining plans to enhance hydrocarbon production. The growth of the offshore support vessel (osv) market in the Asia Pacific region is driven by factors such as escalating deepwater activities, the development of new oil fields, and the expansion of offshore wind farms, signifying a positive outlook for the industry in this dynamic region.
