Increasing demand for effective crude oil storage facilities, increasing oil trade, and strategic petroleum reserves (SPR) investments to boost market development. Fortune Business Insights™ provides this information in its report titled “Oil Storage Terminal Market, 2021-2028.” The market size was USD 29.32 billion in 2020 and USD 30.16 billion in 2021.

Oil storage terminals are a very crucial component for the supply of gas and oil globally. It is an industrial facility that is used to store oil and gasses. The rising demand for effective crude oil storage facilities are expected to bolster market development. Crude oil facilities are developed for commercial and reserve purposes. Further, the rising investments in SPR are expected to compel several countries to expand crude oil storage facilities and satisfy oil demand in case of import issues. For example, every country under the European Union is expected to possess nearly 90 days’ petroleum reserve for domestic consumption. Moreover, oil trade between countries is likely to increase investments in the development of crude oil reserves. These factors are likely to boost the growth of the market in the upcoming years.

Impact of COVID-19

Fluctuating Raw Material Prices to Impede Market Growth

This market is expected to be negatively affected during the COVID-19 pandemic because of the halt on transport, manufacturing, and mining activities. The sudden spike in COVID-19 patients and the imposition of lockdown regulations led to the adoption of stringent lockdown regulations. This factor led to fluctuations in raw material and crude oil prices. However, post lockdown restrictions enabled companies to incorporate reduced capacities, part-time shifts, and production machinery to satisfy consumers’ demand and boost sales. This strategy enabled the companies to recover losses and satisfy demand. In addition, government investments for crude oil storage facilities are likely to bolster market development during the pandemic.

Drivers & Restraints

Rising Crude Oil Products and Energy Demand to Foster Industry Development

Oil storage terminal is used extensively to store crude oil for the production of crude oil-based products. Rising demand for petroleum and natural gas from the automotive industry may boost the product’s adoption. Further, rapid urbanization, rising energy demand, and rising population are likely to foster the product’s demand. As per the United Nations (UN) Department of Economic and Social Affairs, the global population is expected to increase by 9.8 billion in 2050 and 11.2 billion by 2100. As a result, the construction of several oil storage terminals will grow positively. Moreover, the extraction of petrol, kerosene, petrol, and aviation fuel is expected to promote the construction of oil and gas storage facilities. In addition, rising air traffic and rapid development in the automobile industry are expected to boost storage facilities incorporation. These factors are likely to drive the oil storage terminal market growth.

However, the rising adoption of renewable energy may impede market growth during the upcoming years.

Regional Insights

Rising Petroleum and Energy Demand to Foster Progress in Asia Pacific

Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the oil storage terminal market share because of the rising demand for energy and petroleum from India and China. The market in Asia Pacific stood at USD 9.90 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow remarkably in the upcoming years. Crude oil is the major source of energy in these countries, which, in turn, may boost the demand for effective oil storage terminals. Singapore and South Korea are the major hubs for oil storage in the region. Several companies in the region undertake divestments to expand industrial outlook and magnify novel plans. For example, Brightoil Petroleum sold approximately 90% of its Hong Kong shares in December 2020. It includes the Zhoushan terminal and oil storage facilities for the Yantian Group. The Zhoushan facility is approximately 3.16 million m3. Its phase 1 facility possesses a capacity of 1.94 million m3, and its phase 2 facility possesses a capacity of 1.22 million m3. These factors are likely to fuel the market development.

In Europe, increasing production capacities is expected to boost oil storage facilities’ construction activities and fulfill the energy demand of several countries dependent upon crude oil. The rising energy demand may lead to the expansion of storage facilities to fulfill oil and gas demand during a crisis. Additionally, rising initiatives by key players for the inorganic and organic expansions are likely to boost market development.

In North America, the rising export of oil products is expected to present several growth opportunities for the region. In addition, the adoption of mergers is expected to boost market development. For example, a US-based liquid storage provider BW Terminals merged with Contanda, known as BWX Terminals. These factors may propel market development.

Competitive Landscape

Prominent Companies Set Up Facilities to Expand Market Reach

The prominent companies operating in the market set up facilities to satisfy consumers and expand their market reach. For example, a branch of Brooge Energy named Brooge Petroleum and Gas Investment Company (BPGIC) set up its phase 2 storage facility in Port of Fujairah, in the UAE. The site completed the testing and commissioning approvals to store clean petroleum and crude oil. BPGIC is the second-largest storage facility and possesses a 1 million m3 (6.3 million bbl) capacity. This strategy may enable BPGIC to reach a wider consumer base and expand its market reach. Furthermore, the adoption of effective materials and effective production machinery may allow companies to improve their storage facility’s effectiveness, enhance safety and boost adoption.

Drivers & Restraints

Increasing Adoption of Polycrystalline Diamond Compact Drill Bits to Boost Growth

In terms of type, the global oil and gas drill bit market is grouped into fixed cutter bits and roller cone cutter bits. Under the fixed cutter bits segment, there are two types, namely, diamond-impregnated and polycrystalline diamond compact (PDC). Amongst these, PDC is projected to dominate the global oil and gas drill bit market in the forthcoming years. It is because a diamond is one of the hardest material that is found on the earth. It can be used against any rock formation to break through it and take out the required product. Due to this property, demand for PDC drilling bit is increasing day by day. Moreover, the tiny, inexpensive particles of diamond are easily transformed into masses of crystals which are further turned into shaped called diamond tablets. These diamond tablets are then brought into contact with the formation to carry out the cutting process.

Competitive Landscape

Halliburton Unveils New In-bit Sensor Package Named Cerebro Featuring Advanced Technology

In November 2018, Halliburton, a leading oil field service company, headquartered in the U.S., announced the launch of its new Cerebro in-bit sensor package. It is infused with advanced technology that receives performance data directly from the drill bit and examines it to increase drilling efficiency, decrease the uncertainty, and optimize cutter engagement. The company stated that the new service would eventually improve drilling performance and overall data measurement. Cerebro offers a unique view of the entire run by persistently capturing motion data and downhole vibration. It further aids operators in pinpointing the damaged areas. Also, it notifies when the said performance is not gained due to operating parameters or fluctuant design. Cerebro helps in identifying numerous common drill bit factors, namely, whirl and stick-slip, torsional resistance, and lateral and axial vibration that can have a negative impact on the reliability and drilling speed.
