Subsea pump markets to reach US$1.5bn by 2020


Subsea pumps market is projected to reach US$1.5Bn by 2020 due to increased utilization of subsea technology in oil production. This, according to Transparency Market Research’s (TMR), will account for a healthy 7.10% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2014 to 2020, a significant increase compared to the US$0.9Bn market value in 2013.

Subsea pumping is commonly used for increased oil recovery from subsea oil and gas reservoirs, especially in low-pressure oil fields.


According to the TMR report, factors such as flawless operational capabilities and high economic benefits are some of the driving forces behind the increase in demand for the subsea pumps across the world.

The utilization of subsea pumps is known to aid in the life extension of existent gas and brownfield repositories. This serves as an advantage since with all factors considered, the demand for boosting production of existent projects is boosting growth of the global subsea pumps market.
