Steady return to growth for the offshore MMO sector

Douglas-Westwood’s (DW’s) latest view from the World Offshore Maintenance, Modifications and Operations (MMO) market shows a positive outlook for the sector. A steady recovery from the recent oil price downturn is forecast, with Modifications spend expected to improve significantly between 2017 and 2021. Whilst industry feedback highlights significant pricing pressure among MMO providers, the number of global fixed and floating platforms, coupled with ageing population and industry regulation will continue to drive offshore MMO expenditure over the forecast period.

Over the 2017 to 2021 period we expect to see a 4.1% CAGR growth in global offshore MMO expenditure – global MMO expenditure for the world’s global offshore platform population of approximately 8700 fixed and floating assets is expected to increase from $81bn in 2017 to $95bn in 2021. Driving this spend is degradation of existing asset infrastructure and the need for adherence to industry standards.

By service line, Asset Services accounts for over a half of total expenditure, 60%, with Modifications, 21%, Asset Integrity, 14% and Support Services, 6%. Asia and North America dominate global expenditure, with 24% and 20% of spend over the forecast period.
