This edition has seen a full refresh of the market model with the latest DW offshore data and revisions to methodology, sense-checked through extensive consultation with industry.
The conclusions of the report highlight the current market challenges with weaker dayrates and lower levels of utilisation for the work-class fleet.

Drilling support accounts for some 55% of the current market followed by construction support at 29%. The remaining IRM market is the smallest but also the most resilient to downturns in oil price.
Regionally, the Middle East is a bright spot, with no downturn in expenditure evident and a CAGR of 6.5% to 2019. It does, however, only accounts for 10% of overall spend in 2015 due to the extensive use of divers in the region. Latin America is now the largest market albeit growth levels are somewhat muted at 3.3% CAGR as a result of slowdown in developments in Brazil.
