Market Highlights:-

Drill bits are made up materials such as tungsten carbide, diamond for increasing the steel bits strength. Different drill bits are employed for desired results, depending on drilling requirements and to overcome any challenges in well drilling. On the other hand, drill bits have to be changed on the basis of wear and tear as well. Generally, drill bits are selected based on the type of formation encountered by the drilling operators and also based on the type of drilling activity.

However, the global drill bits market is highly fragmented and competitive due to the presence of numerous large and medium players active in regional market. The key strategies of the key players include product launch, acquisition, and expansion along with agreement & partnership. Also, strategic partnerships between companies support the growth and expansion plans of the key players during the forecast period. To improve their sales, companies invest in innovation and research and development, brand building, and nurture strong relationships with consumers to sustain their competitive position in the global market.

The drill bits market is segmented on the basis of type, which is segmented into rolling cutter and fixed cutter bits. The rolling cutter drill bits are tooth-shaped. Rolling cutter bits drill by fracturing the formation with tooth-shaped cutting elements on two or more cone-shaped elements that roll across the face of the borehole. The roller cone cutter drill bits are classified as milled-tooth bits and tungsten carbide inserts. Whereas fixed cutter is largely used in natural or synthetic diamond, to remove material by grinding action as the bit is rotated. Polycrystalline diamond bits and natural diamond bits contribute a major share in the fixed cutter drill bits.

The applications that use drill bits are land and offshore. Advancement in unconventional drilling techniques such as horizontal and vertical drilling activities, drilling activities are expected to witness further increase, which in turn would drive the market for drill bits.

The market is also segmented by regions like North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and South America.

Industry News:-

As reported in June 2018, National Oilwell Varco has bought GustoMSC, a Dutch engineering firm. The deal allows NOV to expand and further vertically integrate its offshore rig business with oil prices being healthier and the deteriorating deep water energy sector showing signs of life.

In May 2018, Saudi Aramco has made a deal with Halliburton to lift its production program in three Saudi Arabian shale fields. This represents an expansion of Saudi Aramco’s efforts to produce more natural gas to support its growing chemical industry. Saudi Aramco also hopes to reduce the practice of burning oil for domestic power to increase its crude exports.

Regional Analysis:-

Geographically, the drill bit market spreads across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and South America.

Among all, North America is estimated to hold the largest market share for drill bits owing to introduction of horizontal drilling technology and unconventional drilling activities. In recent times, U.S. has established itself as a prime crude oil producing country, reasons being increased onshore drilling activities for extraction of shale oil and gas. For instance, in North America, Shell Oil Products and Wex Inc. have reached an agreement in which Wex will issue and operate Shell’s full portfolio of commercial fleet cards in the United States and Canada. Agreements between companies enable the market to expand relentlessly, with key players adopting advanced technology for drilling activities.
