Offshore drilling rigs play a key role in oil and gas development. The ever-increasing offshore exploration and production activities across the globe and the drilling activities taking place at ultra-deep water depths are driving the market. On the other hand, issues associated with the environment, geopolitical turmoil, and a lack of skilled professionals, are adversely affecting market growth. Semi-submersibles have the highest growth rate, and are the most preferred rigs deployed for drilling. They are operational at water depths up to 7500 feet and are in high demand across the globe wherever offshore explorations and production activities take place. Drillships are also exhibiting a decent growth rate vis-à-vis ultra-deep water drilling activities. Drilling contractors are currently placing more orders for jackups due to increasing shallow water exploration activities in emerging markets.
