Synopsis:

For the past decade that ON World has been conducting market research on the oil and gas industry, new drilling techniques, low power wireless sensors and cloud infrastructure has made North America one of the world’s largest global petroleum producers. In this same time frame, hundreds of thousands of wireless sensors have been securely and reliably deployed in large numbers from offshore platforms to arctic oilfields.

With potential infrastructure savings as high as 80%, wireless has become the default option for remote monitoring for wellhead automation, equipment maintenance, asset management, safety, health and environmental monitoring.

The downturn has given wireless adoption a boost due to its lower total costs and advantages for remote monitoring in harsh environments. This has benefited non-traditional wireless applications such as asset monitoring, gas detection and steam trap monitoring. It has also accelerated adoption for standards based systems using WirelessHART and ISA100.11a and resulted in growing demand for Low Power Wide Area (LPWAN) technologies such as LoRa, SigFox, RPMA, LTE-M and NB-IoT.

This report is based on input with 100+ individuals across the whole oil and gas value chain. It also includes an extensive survey conducted by ON World in collaboration with International Society of Automation (ISA) that is compared with previous surveys completed in 2012 and 2014.

In this report, we presents the key survey findings; 5-year market size forecasts by market, application, product segment, geography and technology; as well as a standards/technology review and competitive analysis of 50+ companies.
