Despite turmoil this year in the oil & gas industry, Douglas-Westwood (DW) forecasts $25 billion in expenditure on offshore oil & gas helicopter services between 2015 and 2019.

The installed base of manned production infrastructure continues to increase, as does the fleet of offshore rigs and specialist installation and support vessels. This drives the demand for helicopter services, with our forecast spend for the next five years increasing more than 25%, compared to the preceding five-year period.

However, the significant cuts in capital expenditure that we have seen in 2015 will impact the helicopter business with lower than previously expected levels of drilling and seismic activity. We also expect to see a delay in the sanctioning of some new offshore production infrastructure.

Whilst expectations for the coming three years are lower than previously anticipated in our 2014 report (by between -4% and -7% year-on-year) the overall picture remains a long-term growth story with the offshore helicopter industry expected to be relatively resilient as the majority of demand will arise from ongoing production phase support.

The coming years will be an important time for the industry as a new generation of medium-class helicopters, such as the H175 and AW189, are introduced. These have been developed to provide higher crew capacity, power and range for a number of industries. These models are highly efficient with new advanced safety systems and are, therefore, expected to perform well in the offshore arena.

This is DW’s 2nd edition of the World Offshore Oil & Gas Helicopters Market Forecast and covers all key commercial themes relevant to players across the value chain:

-Key drivers – identification and discussion of key underlying drivers and their influence on the offshore helicopter services market.
-Supply chain analysis – of contracting processes, helicopter fleet developments, new helicopter models and helicopter procurement trends.
-Competitive landscape – covering both helicopter operators and helicopter OEMs.
-Regional analysis – summary of growth prospects, key buyers, competitive intensity and typical contracting approach.
-Market forecasts – analysis of expenditure, supply and demand development by region (Africa, Asia, Australasia, Latin America, Middle East, North America and Western Europe) from 2015 to 2019.
