Downhole Cable: Market Overview

Downhole cables are various type of cables used in oil & gas production activities, designed to withstand extreme temperature and pressures which are designed as necessitated by the client. Downhole cables are unique to oil & gas industry as they are employed for instrumentation cables, sensor cables, data and power transmission cables, control cables and pressure measuring cables, among others, inside a drilled well. The cables are used to record data like pressure and temperature of downhole, to provide torque and power to downhole equipment like the drill bit and motor, relay back information of drilling data like rate of penetration (ROP), mud weight, annulus pressure and other information. Oil & gas drilling is one of the most complex jobs and requires constant influx of data for smooth operation and control and the installation of downhole cables helps in achieving the same. With the recovering oil & gas industry, the downhole cable market is anticipated to witness healthy growth in the foreseeable future.

Downhole Cable Market Dynamics

The oil & gas industry is one of the main driving factors of global economy, with the growth of number of industries like automotive, energy, power, construction, chemicals and marine, depending on the respective industry growth. After the oil price slump in 2014-2015, the crude oil prices have stabilized a bit, encouraging investments in new exploration & production (E&P) activities worldwide.      

The surge in investments in oil & gas is expected to be a main driving factor for the growth of downhole cable market, as increased oil & gas activity is expected to create increased demand for downhole cables. In terms of application, offshore segment is expected to witness huge growth in the global downhole cable market, given the growing amount of projects being sanctioned in deep offshore across the globe. Growing adoption of IoT has been a prominent trend and is expected to significantly transform the downhole cables market, by incorporating even more functions into the system. However, volatility in crude oil prices and rising geopolitical tension between the U.S. and Iran is expected to hamper the growth of oil & gas industry and downhole cable market.
