The global subsea production and processing systems market is anticipated to witness substantial growth in the coming years on account of the high demand for energy coupled with continuous conventional onshore petroleum reserves depletion. Exploration & production in deepwater and ultra-deepwater acreages have witnessed increased attention owing to growing global energy requirements. The rapid development of subsea technology along with operational expenditure reduction is presumed to aid the market over the forecast period. Increased recovery factors and reduced susceptibility to hydrate formation are expected to further complement the global market growth.
Favorable regulatory policies and fiscal incentives for deep & ultra-deepwater hydrocarbon exploration are touted to play a critical role in developing the overall subsea production and processing systems market growth. Massive upfront investments, harsh operating conditions, and inadequate technological expertise are anticipated to emerge as major challenges for market growth. Volatile crude oil and gas prices coupled with operational, technological, and political risks are presumed to retard the subsea production and processing equipment market over the forecast period. Stringent environmental safeguards may play further spoilsport to the subsea systems market growth. A large percentage of recent hydrocarbon discoveries has been through offshore reserves, thus opening up ample opportunities for the subsea systems market participants. Increasing automation in subsea systems across the oil & gas processing industry to opens up myriad opportunities for the industry participants as well as for the automation industry.
The subsea market can be segmented into two categories, viz. subsea production equipment and subsea processing equipment. Production equipment include subsea manifolds, flowlines, subsea trees, multiphase pumps, control modules, and umbilical risers. While boosting, separation, injection, and compression equipment fall under the subsea processing category. Large scale offshore operations in regions such as the Arctic and the Golden Triangle comprising of Gulf of Mexico, offshore Brazil, and offshore West Africa show promising opportunities for the market. Severe energy crunch in the emerging economies in Asia Pacific such as China and India are expected to bolster the subsea market over the forecast period.
Major subsea production and processing systems market participants include Schlumberger Ltd., Baker Hughes Inc., Aker Solutions, FMC Technologies, GE Energy, Technip, and Transocean, among others.

"The quality of research they have done for us has been excellent."
The ongoing pandemic has led to a decline in exploration activities in the oil & gas sector. A number of EPC projects have also witnessed an indefinite pause that has transpired into a slump in the requirement for drilling and excavation services. Economic repercussions of the trend are expected to be highly evident in the Middle East. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
