Market Introduction of Horizontal Directional Drilling Market

Horizontal Directional Drilling is a technique used to efficiently and accurately achieve drilling operations along with back ream the essential pipe, side-lining different obstacles on the bore track without significant collateral harm to the subsurface ecosystems. The rising concerns about the need to reduce the environmental damage triggered by rising industrialization and urbanization worldwide due to the adoption of horizontal directional drilling equipment for boring and drilling operations.

What is the Market Size of Horizontal Directional Drilling Equipment in terms of value?

Global Horizontal Directional Drilling Equipment Market is projected to increase at a significant CAGR of 6.5% in the coming years. In 2021, the global horizontal directional drilling equipment market was valued at USD 8.9 billion and projected to reach USD 13.0 billion by 2028. The demand for horizontal directional drilling equipment will increase substantially in the coming years. It is presumed to generate revenue opportunities for the key industry players worth USD 4.1 billion during the forecast period between 2022 and 2028.

Which is the critical part segment in the Horizontal Directional Drilling Equipment Market?

The rigs segment registered a revenue share of over 55.0% of the total horizontal directional drilling equipment in 2021. Due to the increasing number of telecommunication and oil and gas industry projects, the demand for rigs is experiencing growth in different regions. In addition, further technological developments in rig infrastructure allow the consumers or end-users to achieve boring operations at a very high efficiency and optimization rate. For instance, in the recent development of the control system of rigs, an automated system embedded is installed, which assists in efficiently guiding the equipment to install pipelines for large distances and exit points. However, rigs are comparatively costlier and require regular maintenance to improve their operational life.

The pipes segment is expected to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. Directional drilling equipment manufacturers are increasingly investing in developing boring and drilling pipes that can handle challenging conditions such as high underground pressure. High-Density Polyethylene pipes are selected over concrete or steel pipelines due to their high permeability features. At zero allowable water leakage, the High-Density Polyethylene pipes are more efficient than Polyvinyl Chloride and ductile iron pipes, which have a leakage rate of 10% to 20%. As well as their resistance to corrosion and low weight contributes to the higher preference for High-Density Polyethylene pipes.
