The Global Offshore Support Vessels Market was valued at USD 39.4 billion in 2014 and is projected to reach USD 69.34 billion, at a CAGR of 9.88% during the forecast period from 2014 to 2022. Asia-Pacific is one of the fastest-growing markets with its market share estimated to reach USD 9.7 billion by 2022 during the given forecast period.

Offshore supply vessels are the lifeblood of all offshore operations. Their demand fluctuates with the performance of the offshore sector, and in unison with the global economic conditions. As in the case of other oil and gas industries, the offshore supply vessel market has its own challenges. However, with the introduction of new technologies and regulations, this market is expected to achieve a significant growth rate in the coming decade.

The primary function of offshore support vessels is to deliver goods, food, personnel, and other miscellaneous things to a field from a shore. There has been a significant evolution of offshore support vessels in terms of reliability, diversification, and in their worldwide operation and water depth capabilities. The different categories of offshore support vessels available today are growing with an increase in their technological sophistication.

As the oil and gas explorations move towards deeper waters, multi-functional offshore support vessels are now called upon to perform different tasks, and have created various niches or categories within the market. Present day offshore support vessels are equipped with an increased cargo capacity, panoramic navigation bridge visibility, large accommodation spaces, enhanced crew amenities, and state-of-the-art propulsion & automation systems.

The anchor handling towing vessels segment forms the majority part of the market with 56.0% of the market share, which is followed by the platform support vessels segment. Vessels designed for inspection, maintenance, and repair are generally equipped with large accommodation spaces, heavy lift cranes, helidecks, and streamlined bow forms for their operation in harsh environments. Vessels specialized for multi-tasking carry out maintenance and repair operations on platform facilities as well as subsea pipelines and equipment.

Most promising regions for the OSV market are the Gulf of Mexico, Brazil, West Africa, the North Sea, South East Asia, the Middle-East, and Asia. It has been estimated that the major part of this markets demand will be for AHTS, PSVs, and seismic research vessels.

Efforts are now underway globally to explore new areas for the oil and gas demand in view of the decreasing reserves. Operators and explorers are now moving into much deeper seas, where the use of subsea systems is prominent. Factors, such as declining oil and gas reserves, increasing energy demand, and growth in subsea exploration activities, are driving this market. On the flip side, environmental barriers, such as occasions when the operators are forced to work in harsh environments, high initial costs, volatile oil prices, and lack of skilled labor, are constraining the growth of this market.
