Global Digital Transformation Market in Oil and Gas Industry Size & Growth (2021-2026)

The global digital transformation market in the oil and gas industry is expected to grow by USD 41.25 billion between 2020 and 2026, with a CAGR of 17% over the outlook period.

Digital transformation refers to the process of harnessing current and emerging digital technologies for tangible, game-changing benefits across all fields of application.

Digital transformation has been one of the main trends in the global oil and gas industry for the past decade. This transformation enables operations to take advantage of advanced digital technologies such as AI, IoT, Big Data, etc. to stimulate business. efficiency and therefore open up new opportunities for everything as this could involve digital twins, which obviously improves the efficiency of predictive maintenance of critical assets and therefore limits the exposure of the hazardous task to facility workers.

The process of exploring an oilfield is complex because it requires the analysis of large volumes of data, such as environmental data, equipment data, and seismic data to detect new oil and gas reserves. This pushes providers in oil and gas industry to implement novel technologies like big data and AI. In view of the ecological concerns and expenses related to exploration, they further adopt real-time decisions with the assistance of ML and predictive analytics. This is supposed to optimize exploration and production operations in oil & gas sector. Hence, the increasing need for advanced technologies will lead to the expansion of the global oil and gas industry digital transformation market during the forecast period.

Recent Developments:

  • October 2019: IBM introduced a new integrated supply chain suite, integrated with Watson AI and IBM Blockchain and open to developers, to help organizations make their supply chains smarter, more efficient and able to take decisions needed to adapt to disruptions and opportunities in a market where supplier networks are more complex and vulnerable.
  • September 2019: Schneider Electric announced the launch of its Eco Structure Power & Process in India to increase efficiency and increase profitability in the oil and gas sector. The company aims to combat the volatility associated with the oil and gas industry by reducing operating expenses and private equity by 20% to 30%. This system classifies end users to connect the assets that are the hub of projects with the assets that are the hub of operations. In addition, the company has also partnered with Microsoft to create professional IoT solutions.

Impact of Covid-19 on Digital Transformation Market in Oil & Gas Industry:

The recent COVID 19 outbreak halted global oil production with closures and uncertainties with China leading the way. For example, Carbon Brief reported that operating oil refineries in Shandong Province fell 71.4% in December from 2019 to 38.9% in February 2020.

Market Growth and Trends:

The downstream sector is expected to register a significant market share

  • Digital transformation is seen as one of the main innovations used to drive downstream operations in the oil and gas industry. Companies are focused on increasing the use of assets by improving the efficiency of manufacturing in factories.
  • The downstream activities of oil and gas companies, both petrochemical and refining, have always adopted technology to improve their operations. Several innovative approaches have been implemented that can manage complex processes and interpret information to enhance performance. The pursuit of the digital switchover is expected to have even greater potential, given the strategic will of many companies to expand their activities down the oil and gas value chain, particularly in petrochemicals.
  • The main concern of suppliers is how to predict and prevent or reduce maintenance costs. The automation solutions used for delivery and maintenance planning tools use AI-based simulation and application performance management and can be easily added to an existing operating system. Additionally, upgrading sensor systems to enable better predictive and prescriptive maintenance can lead to long-term operational efficiency gains.
  • Many oil and gas companies rely on technologies such as AI, IoT, Big Data, among others, in their operations to improve their operations. For example, Shell's downstream business, which is responsible for supplying oil and gas to the end consumer, uses artificial intelligence technology to predict consumer demand for petroleum products and measure fuel shortages. find and recommend an oil blend for a refining process.

Market Drivers and Restraints:

Factors such as creating a safe working environment throughout the entire value chain will play an important role in the IoT segment to maintain its position in the market. Additionally, our global oil and gas industry digital transformation market examines factors such as increased investments and partnerships, increasing pressure to improve operational efficiencies, and the growing need for advanced technologies in business exploration. However, the lack of a trained workforce, the growing threat of cyberattacks, and increasing data quality and management issues can hamper the growth of the digital transformation market in the oil and gas industry in the foreseen period.

Market Segmentation:

By technology:

  • Big Data/Analytics
  • Cloud Computing
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Industrial Control Systems

Regional Analysis:

  • Asia Pacific (APAC)
  • Europe
  • MEA
  • North America
  • South America

In recent times, with the situation of low oil prices, the APAC region's refining capacity has experienced record growth between 2014 and 2019. According to a 2019 report published by BP Statistical Review of World Energy, the Asia Pacific has the highest large oil refining capacity. worldwide, processing nearly 34.75 million barrels per day (BPD) in 2018

Given the long lead times and huge capital expenditures involved in oil and gas production, major industry players are looking to gain a competitive advantage through transformative technologies such as artificial intelligence. For example, Woodside, Australia's largest natural gas producer, has implemented IBM Watson to run AI algorithm operations and search over 25 million documents, retrieve content, and compare historical performance and suggest related information. to anyone in business.

Countries such as China, India, Japan and South Korea have one of the most active downstream oil and gas sectors in the APAC area, which together is responsible for more than 78% of capacity, with large refineries deeply integrated with petrochemical production units, in the Asia Pacific region.
