Exploration & Production (E&P) Software Market By Operation ( Onshore, Offshore ), By Deployment (On-Premise E&P Software, Hosted E&P Software ), By Application (Reservoir Engineering, Drilling & Production) – Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis 2015 - 2025

Exploration is the process of determining new oil and gas reservoirs trapped under the Earth’s surface; whereas production is the procedure of obtaining those hidden resources for further processing/refining, marketing and use. This makes the overall exploration & production (E&P) a highly crucial and capital intensive process in the oil & gas sector. E&P software is defined as a set of software solutions developed specifically for the upstream segment of the oil & gas industry. These are designed to cater to a wide range of applications in the upstream sector including seismic processing & imaging, mapping, data analysis, reservoir & geological modeling and production planning. Using E&P software enables the oil & gas companies to better analyze the geological data for more accurate modeling and production planning.

The most significant factor propelling the market growth is the steadily rising expenditure over E&P processes. Rapidly exhausting oil & gas reserves has led to a significant rise in the E&P spending. Oil & gas companies are now more inclined towards effort-free operations, thereby uplifting the demand for simulation software. Using E&P software helps these companies manage their E&P budget more efficiently. Despite the slump in the oil & gas sector in 2009, the E&P sector has been witnessing steady growth since the past 4-5 years. Subsequently, E&P software has been witnessing consistent growth for the recent years. Since the E&P software represent a small portion of the overall E&P expenditure, fluctuating oil & gas industry has relatively lower impact on the market growth.

Based on the deployment model, the global exploration & production (E&P) software market is segmented into following categories:

  • On-premise E&P Software
  • Hosted E&P Software

Exploration & Production (E&P) Software Market

As of 2016, the global E&P software market was led by the on-premise deployment model segment contributing to more than sixty percent of the total market revenue. The on-premise deployment model consists a complete solution including hardware and software required for E&P software setup. This makes on-premise mode of deployment costlier as compared to the other modes of deployment. Many of the mid-sized E&P software vendors still lack a seamless cloud infrastructure.

As a result, major offerings in the market are based on the on-premise deployment model. However, due to immense advantages over on-premise deployment, hosted E&P software segment would exhibit the highest growth during the forecast period. E&P companies are now increasingly looking towards reducing their IT costs. This has forced the E&P software vendors to arrange for the required cloud infrastructure.

Based on the geography, the global exploration & production (E&P) software market is segmented as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Canada
  • Europe
    • U.K.
    • Germany
    • France
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • Japan
    • China
    • South Asia
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Middle East & Africa (MEA)
    • GCC countries
    • South Africa
    • Rest of MEA
  • Latin America
    • Brazil
    • Mexico
    • Rest of Latin America

Exploration & Production (E&P) Software Market

The global E&P software market is dominated, in terms of revenue and adoption, by the North America region. The region is mainly backed by the U.S. having strong adoption of information technology across the oil & gas sector. The nation enjoys presence of larger number of software companies operating in the overall oilfield services sector. This has significantly facilitated the E&P software growth here. Despite the slowdown in oil & gas sector here, the expenditure over E&P processes have had relatively smaller impact.

Subsequently, the market has been witnessing consistent growth in the region since the past 4-5 years. Europe follows North America, in terms of revenue and adoption, accounting for the second largest share, worldwide. The two regions, collectively, are estimated to retain their dominant position in the market throughout the forecast period. Asia Pacific and Middle East & Africa are estimated to register the highest growth in the coming years.
