Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Downhole Drilling Tools Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The Global Downhole Drilling Tools market to grow at a CAGR of 10.2% over the period 2014-2019

Drilling downhole tools facilitate the drilling process and counter significant challenges associated with drilling such as extreme depth, high temperatures, and pressure differentials. Downhole drilling tools guide or steer the wells through small reservoir by changing the trajectory of the well. Currently, a variety of downhole drilling tools are available in the market, which can be used in BHA. Some downhole drilling tools are unique and specific to the particular drilling operation while others are generic in nature and can be used for multiple purposes.

One of the major trends is the advances in technology to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of drilling tools. Advances in drilling technology will significantly increase efficiency, control, and monitoring of the well. Moreover, market vendors are increasing their investments in R&D, which is likely to improve reliability and efficiency of downhole drilling tools.

According to the report, increased demand for oil and gas worldwide is one of the major growth drivers, which requires large investments in advanced technologies to increase efficiency of drilling activities. The growing demand for oil and gas will drive large investment in state-of-the-art technology to increase efficiency of downhole drilling tools, ensuring oil production.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges in the market is the availability of non-conventional and renewable sources of energy.
