Press Release   •   Jan 17, 2018 03:44 EST

The offshore support vessels (OSV) operate in different water depths including shallow, deep and ultra-deep ranges. The global offshore support vessel market is progressing into deep and ultra-deep water zones with the advent of new technologies. Development towards attaining operational excellence, enhancing water depth capabilities and diversification in OSVs will further complement the offshore support vessel market growth.

Introduction of Dynamic Positioning System in OSVs eliminated water depth constraints and ensured better maneuverability and positioning of the vessel. Offshore support vessels are constantly developing with enhanced cargo capacity, large accommodation spaces, enhanced crew amenities, panoramic navigation bridge visibility and automation systems, hosting new opportunities in the global offshore support vessel market.

The legislation applies to any carrier or vessel of minimum 500 gross tons as measured by the Regulatory Measurement System, to certify a vessel as an OSV. Major available OSVs include platform supply vessel (PSV), anchor handling tug supply (AHTS), crew vessel, multipurpose support vessel, rescue and standby vessel and others. AHTS, PSVs and seismic research vessels are projected to occupy a major share in the offshore support vessel market. AHTS specializes in seismic surveys, underwater pipelines laying, towing of drilling rigs and platforms. Vessels designed for repair and maintenance, inspection are equipped with, heavy lift cranes, large accommodation spaces, helidecks for operation in harsh weather conditions.

In North America, the U.S. and the Gulf of Mexico serve as one of the potential offshore support vessel markets. Europe is anticipated to witness a high growth in the offshore support vessels industry owing to increased subsea productions and explorations. Oil and gas prices are projected to rise in the region in coming years accounting to high capital investment on E&P activities.

Some of the key players in the offshore support vessel market include Bourbon, Farstad, Seacor Marine, Swire, Tidewater, Gulfmark Offshore, Havila Shipping, Hornbeck Offshore, Maersk, REM Maritime, Siem, Solstad, Vroon, Edison Chouset, Harvey Gulf, and Island Offshore.
