Douglas-Westwood’s (DW) World Subsea Vessel Operations Market Forecast 2012-2016 builds on the success of the first edition to include a more comprehensive supply-side competitive landscape with major players and their fleets, broken down by vessel type and geographic focus. Day rate analysis by vessel type has been fully reviewed and updated.

*NEW report style with enhanced analysis and speed-read summaries of key points throughout*

DW forecast that between 2012 and 2016 $77bn will be spent on subsea vessel operations in field development, inspection, repair & maintenance (IRM) and subsea well intervention. This is an increase of 63% over the preceding five-year period, with global vessel demand for these markets expected to increase 33%.

This strong growth is a result of confidence returning to the subsea industry, a move towards deep water in underdeveloped regions and towards ultra deep in those already developed, and the subsequent increased demand for higher specification vessels required for these operations.

The World Subsea Vessel Operations Market Forecast 2012-2016 analyses the main factors driving demand for ROVSV, DSV, Flexlay, LWIV and Pipelay Vessels. The new edition contains:

  • Market forecasting & field prospect data – the report uses a unique market model specifically developed in collaboration with leading subsea industry participants.
