Global offshore decommissioning market is expected to grow at a steady CAGR during the forecast period. Increasing focus on mature oil & gas fields is one of the key factors due to which the market is anticipated to rev up during the forecast years. The regulatory bodies have established legal guidelines for offshore oil and gas operations in respective nations which is positively impacting the growth of market during the forecast period. Furthermore, upsurge in demand for oil and gas is expected to bolster the growth of market over the next few years.

Due to impact of COVID-19, there has been recent downturn in prices of oil which is expected to be a key restraint to not only exploration and development activities of oil and gas but also decommissioning operations. However, once the countries will ease restriction on lockdown, demand for offshore decommissioning is expected to increase through 2025.

The global offshore decommissioning market is segmented based on services, structure, depth, removal, company, and region. Based on services, the market has been segmented into project management, planning & engineering, permitting compliance, regulatory compliance, well plugging and abandonment, material disposal, site clearance, platform preparation and others. The well plugging and abandonment segment dominated the market until 2019 and is estimated to maintain its dominance over the next five years as well which can be attributed to high demand from the European market. Based on depth, the market has been categorised into deepwater and shallow water. Until 2019, the shallow water segment accounted for the largest market share and the segment is projected to maintain its leading position over the next five years as well owing to its lower operational costs.

The major players operating in the offshore decommissioning market are Aker Solutions ASA, Ramboll Group, AF Gruppen ASA, Technifmc Plc, John Wood Group Plc, Tetra Technologies Inc., Amec Foster Wheeler PL, Heerema Marine Contractors, Subsea 7 S.A., Allseas Group S.A. and others.
