Visiongain Publishes Offshore Support Vessel Market Report 2022-2032

08 February 2022

Visiongain has published a new report entitled the Offshore Support Vessel Market Report 2022-2032: Forecasts by Application (Shallow Water, Deepwater), by End-use (Oil, Gas, Offshore Wind), by Type (Platform Support Vessel, Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessel, Multipurpose Support Vessel, Standby and Rescue Vessel), by Vessel Size (Small, Medium, Large, Very Large) AND Regional and Leading National Market Analysis PLUS Analysis of Leading Companies AND COVID-19 Recovery Scenarios.

The global offshore support vessel market was valued at US$xx million in 2021 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period 2022-2032.

Technological Advancements Are Creating New Opportunities For The Specialised Vessel Fleet.
Technology advancements and developments, particularly Storage Vessels, which provide a cost-effective alternative for the development of gas-to-power projects, are also critical. Many of the gas-to-power projects under consideration use vessels rather than more traditional onshore regasification facilities. FSRUs have several advantages, including the ability to be built offsite and quickly transported to the project's location, as well as the possibility of lower risk than onshore development - especially if onshore development may face challenges such as increased security or permitting issues.

How has COVID-19 had a significant negative impact on the Offshore Support Vessel Market?
The COVID-19 pandemic is having an impact on all sectors of the shipping and offshore industries, as well as stakeholders' supply chains. The fortunes of the commercial shipping sector and its supply chain are directly linked to the fortunes of the global economy as carriers of 90% of global trade volumes. It is critical that industry responds to the virus outbreak, which has affected all maritime and offshore parties. It works to improve the health and safety of people by achieving cleanliness and contamination response standards. The personnel while ensuring that operations are not disrupted. This will necessitate the use of disease-prevention best practises.

Following the worldwide outbreak of the coronavirus ("COVID-19"), many countries' socioeconomic activities have been severely hampered. The shipbuilding and offshore construction industries have faced significant challenges, including mandatory lockdowns, mandatory quarantines, labour shortages, supply and material shortages, and a slew of government restrictions and policies enacted in response to the pandemic.

In order to facilitate the declaration of force majeure, relevant governmental authorities in some countries, such as the China Council for the Promotion of International Trade, have issued Force Majeure Certificates to many adversely affected shipyards.

The challenges of proving causation in shipbuilding and offshore construction contracts are well known. These projects (particularly in the offshore context) are usually complex and take a long time to complete. Other force majeure events, errors in the initial or FEED designs, late provision of contractual information or Company / Buyer Furnished Equipment, or the cumulative effect of various or large change orders are all likely to cause delays.

As a result, all of the usual concerns about evidentiary requirements and global claims presentation will apply equally to COVID-19 delays. However, two principles that may affect the applicability of force majeure clauses in the context of causation deserve special attention. If the following circumstances exist, the Builder/Contractor may have difficulty establishing causation.

What are the current market drivers?

Infrastructure Is A Major Motivator
The deterioration of infrastructure is a major motivator for research in this field. More research is needed because there is a scarcity of data on the current state of infrastructure. Without major reinvestment or shutdown, such a study should investigate the extent to which mitigation and maintenance techniques can achieve longer life. Furthermore, spills caused by ageing pipelines and umbilicals are becoming more common.

As a result, pipeline re-engineering and rapid examination are required. Another noteworthy development is the growing interest in the high-integrity pressure protection system (HIPPS), which was developed to protect subsea pipelines after valve installation. When more high-pressure pipelines are connected to the system, it can help protect older low-pressure pipelines from damage. Operators, on the other hand, are having difficulty relying on HIPPS at the moment, so the system must be improved. To foster system acceptability, more demonstrations with increasing degrees of technical readiness will be required. Advanced electric HIPPS technology can help to improve safety.

Using Contracted Resources Lowers Costs
Because a MODU will be mobilised to drill the wells regardless, the single vessel approach to platform installation can reduce overall project costs. It also eliminates the mobilisation costs associated with additional construction vessels and personnel by being used to install the platform structures. Platform construction activities can also make use of existing MODU resources, such as supply boats, to transport platform structures to the field when drilling operations are not taking place.

Once the platform structures and well conductors are in place, hook up and commissioning activities can be carried out concurrently with the drilling programme, with the MODU acting as a support unit. This enables the operator to take advantage of the existing accommodation and support vessels.

Where are the market opportunities?

Dynamic Positioning (DP) That Uses The Vessel's Own Propellers And Thrusters To Maintain The Vessel's Position And Heading.
Offshore support vessels, such as supply, standby, anchor handling, and subsea operations vessels, have multiple combustion engines and dynamic positioning systems to ensure that they can perform their duties reliably in nearly any sea state. Dynamic positioning (DP) is a computer-controlled system that uses the vessel's own propellers and thrusters to maintain the vessel's position and heading. Even if one of the main vessel engines fails, the DP mode must keep enough power resources available at all times to handle peak loads caused by extreme waves and wind variations. This has resulted in a general operational pattern in which ships run multiple engines at the same time, even in calm seas, when serving oil and gas installations within a 500-mile radius.

Hybrid Power Technology Is Used In Maritime Shipping To Reduce Emissions And Climate Impacts.
Hybrid power technology is one option for reducing emissions and climate impacts in maritime shipping. It's especially promising for vessels operating in a variety of conditions, and they focus on offshore vessels because of the wide range of actual loads and the high demand for potential load at short notice. In this context, hybrid refers to the addition of electric battery capacity to a traditional power setup, allowing for more demand-driven power production in various operating modes. The following are some of the benefits of batteries: They can, for starters, compensate for load fluctuations, allowing the combustion engine(s) to run at a more constant – and optimised – load.

Competitive Landscape
The major players operating in the offshore support vessel market are Kawasaki Heavy Industries , Maersk Drilling A/S, DOF Group, Solstad Offshore, TideWater, Siem Offshore, MMA Offshore Limited: , Seacor Marine, Nam Cheong Limited, Havila Shipping, GC Rieber, Swire Pacific Offshore, Harvey Gulf International Marine, TideWater, PACC Offshore Service Holding, Grupo CBO, These major players operating in this market have adopted various strategies comprising M&A, investment in R&D, collaborations, partnerships, regional business expansion, and new product launch.
