The global drill bit market relies heavily on the state of the global oil industry and the connected crude oil prices. The primary use of the drill bit is concentrated in the upstream oil and gas sector. The recent rout in global crude prices, leading to a reduction in drilling activities, is expected to cast a significant effect on the fortunes of the drill bit market during the forecast period.

Competitive vendor landscape

The drilling sector is one of the core pillars of the upstream oil and gas sector. Therefore, the investment outlook for the sector is dependent upon the overall state of the entire oil and gas value chain. The recent collapse of the global oil market, driven by historical imbalances in the demand-supply dynamics, has pushed the profitability of the upstream activities to the brink, thereby drying up a significant portion of investments in drilling operations for new resources.

The global drilling equipment market is concentrated with large players occupying larger market share. The market players involved in the drilling equipment market adopt multiple strategies to gain a competitive advantage over the other players in the market,” says Thanikachalam Chandrasekaran, a lead oil and gas research analyst from Technavio.

Moreover, competitors at the regional level are also engaged in robust research and development to develop innovative products and technologies to cater to changing market dynamics. By adopting these strategies, companies can create a large partner base as well as large customers.
