Global Horizontal Directional Drilling Market is segmented based on type, application, end use, and region. Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD) is also known as directional boring. This is a method of installing underground cables, conduit, and pipelines using trenchless methods. Using Horizontal Directional Drilling involves the use of a directional drilling machine, and related attachments which helps to drill lengthways the selected bore path and back ream the essential pipe.
Directional drilling is carried out in three main stages, which includes pilot hole which consists of drilling a small diameter pilot hole. Pre-reaming is a second step in the drilling process, used to pre-ream the pilot hole and enlarge it to a size sufficient to safely install the product lines. The last step is pipe pullback, is the pullback of the pipe within the pre-reamed hole.
Utmost directed horizontal boring machines use a drilling fluid, which greases and steadies the bore, and also transports the mined material in suspension. Drill pipe and downhole tools are mostly exchangeable. The prominent factors that are playing major role in raising the growth of the Horizontal Directional Drilling Market are increasing demand from utilities such as electricity distribution and natural gas distribution, telecommunication industry and increased prominence of the environment friendly trenchless technology and augmented demand from different sections.
On the other hand, the factors restraining market growth are lack of skilled operators and contractors those lack the knowledge of selecting drill heads, reaming devices, and drill fluid well-suited with the conditions come across. Horizontal Directional Drilling Market is classified, by type into Small HDD, Medium HDD, and Large HDD.
Horizontal Directional Drilling Market is classified, by application into Oil and Gas, Telecommunication, Utilities, Electric Transmission, and others. The Utilities segment includes power, gas, and water distribution. The Utilities segment accounted for the largest market share of the Horizontal Directional Drilling Market and is expected to lead the market over the forecast period. HDD is used for connecting underground pipes, cables, and ducts, as it delivers trenchless drill techniques to eludeenduring damages to the environment.
On the other hand, telecommunication segment is expected to grow at lucrative rate over the forecast period. This is mainly due to the flow in optic fiber and telecommunication lines to address rising demand for high-speed broadband. Horizontal Directional Drilling Market is segmented, geographically into North America, Europe (Eastern Europe, Western Europe), Asia Pacific, Latin America, Middle East and Africa.
Globally, North American region registered the largest market share of the Horizontal Directional Drilling Industry in terms of revenue, the reason for growth is rising macroeconomic outlook with increasing consumer spending is estimated to encourage HDD industry participants to expand the number of equipment and service outlets in the U.S. Moreover, the factors that are expected to lift the sales in this region are increasing capital investment, and non-residential construction expenditure.
Asia Pacific is expected to grow at significant CAGR over the forecast period; the reason being low labor cost and high infrastructural development in the emerging regions such as China, India, and Singapore. Also, due to higher telecommunication industry penetration in these regions, the use of HDD in laying transmission lines for telecom provides leverage to the industry and is expected to increase market growth significantly.
On the other hand, it is expected that Europe will also come up with the huge growth. This is mainly due to growing demand for new construction joined with spare of outdated creation. On the other hand, British Drilling Association has arranged safety standards for HDD equipment. Horizontal Directional Drilling Market key players are Vision Directional Drilling, Southeast Directional Drilling, Ditch Witch, General Electric, Midwest Underground, UEA, Nabors Industries, Vermeer Corporation and Ferguson Michiana.
