The growing technological advancements in the upstream sector of oil & gas has been identified as one of the key factors driving the growth of global exploration and production (E&P) software market. In 2016, the global exploration and production (E&P) software market was valued at US$3,693.9 mn and is expected to reach US$14,149.6 mn by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 16.3% during the forecast period.
Based on deployment types, the global exploration & production (E&P) software market has been segmented into on-premise and cloud-based software. The on-premise software held the largest market share in 2016 contributing almost 71% of the market revenue share. On the other hand, cloud-based software is expected to grow with a significant rate, thereby becoming a leading segment by 2025 The cloud-based software is projected to hold a market revenue share of approximately 59% in 2025. This is mainly attributed to the rising level of digitization and growing awareness of cloud computing technologies in the oil & gas sector.
Production Software to Lead Global Market as Upward Trend Poised to Continue
On the basis of operation type, the global exploration & production (E&P) software market has been classified into on-shore and off-shore operation type. Of these, the on-shore operation segment contributed the highest revenue in 2016 and held the largest market share with almost 68% of the market revenue share. On the other hand, off-shore operation type segment is projected to witness the maximum growth rate during the forecast period. This is due to owing to the rising number of off-shore oil & gas activities.
