Abstract, Snapshot, Market Analysis & Market Definition: Global Horizontal Directional Drilling Market

The global horizontal directional drilling market size was valued at USD 7.37 billion in 2018. It is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 13.2% from 2019 to 2025. Growing emphasis on causing minimal damages to the environment and minimizing inconvenience caused to public while carrying out infrastructure projects are projected to stir up the demand for HDD services.
The global horizontal directional drilling market has been gaining traction as a result of flourishing telecommunications and oil & gas industries. Soaring need for infrastructure development and utility installations, in line with growing urbanization, is escalating the growth of the overall market worldwide.

Horizontal directional drilling is one of the most specialized methods for installing underground conduits with minimal damages to surrounding ecosystem. Besides, the fact that HDD techniques also ensure more precision as compared to vertical maneuvering methods is also poised to stimulate the growth of the market over the forecast period.
As compared to conventional maneuvering methods, horizontal directional drilling techniques require fewer boreholes to be drilled. In other words, HDD machines can install multiple pipes through a single surface location, which means the surface area of land to be drilled is reduced. This sustainable construction method also requires a smaller set-up space. This ability renders it ideal for congested public areas, where projects have to be finished in a short span of time, keeping the inconvenience caused to the public minimum and trying to avoid traffic congestions.
At the same time, risks associated with conventional drilling methods, such as contamination of groundwater, can also be avoided by adopting advanced trenchless maneuvering technologies. Another attribute of the method is the reliability and efficiency of horizontal maneuvering technique as compared to other trenchless methods. Horizontal directional drilling is preferred over auger boring and microtunneling methods for digging down bores that are less than six inches below the ground, such as smaller water pipes and electricity cables and fiber-optic lines.
Moreover, availability of maneuvering sensors coupled with advancements in surveying techniques, computer technology, and global positioning systems (GPS) are allowing them to take care of any obstructions encountered during drilling beforehand, thereby making HDD method more convenient. However, horizontal directional drilling methods often incur higher operating costs as compared to the other trenchless techniques.

Based on application, the global HDD services market has been classified into onshore and offshore. Onshore activities involve the use of horizontal directional drilling techniques for drilling pipes on land surface, while offshore activities include the use of these techniques for maneuvering pipes at depths below the seabed.
The onshore segment held a revenue share of over 45.0% in 2018. The offshore segment is expected to progress at a CAGR of more than 14.0% over the forecast period as the oil & gas industry continues to undertake more and more offshore projects.
End-use Insights
Horizontal directional drilling services are used in end-use industries such as oil & gas extraction, utility, and telecommunication. Some other end uses are soil mapping, sewage disposal, and geothermal energy distribution.

The oil & gas extraction segment represented the leading revenue share of around 35.0% in 2018. It is estimated to retain its position through 2025. On the other hand, spiraling demand for broadband services worldwide is anticipated to spur the growth of the telecommunication segment, which is projected to rise at a CAGR of close to 15.0% during the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to increasing capital spending to roll out newer broadband and communication networks that can support 4G and 5G generations of cellular network technology.

Regional Insights
North America dominated the global market in 2018 with the highest revenue share of over 35.0%. Owing to growing number of oil & gas, utility construction, and infrastructure development projects in the region, it is poised to lead the global market throughout the forecast period.
The market for HDD machines is likely to experience robust growth in Asia Pacific over the coming years as vendors based in China are offering these machines at comparatively lower prices. In case of HDD services, the region is expected to exhibit substantial growth over the same period as providers of telecommunications services are increasingly opting for these services to expand their networks.
