The Drilling Bits Market value was estimated to be USD 5.63 Billion during the historic forecast period that had ended in 2019 and hence, the Drilling Bits Market Share is expected to reach USD 11.83 Billion by the end of the current forecast period ending in 2028 recording a global market CAGR growth of 7.27%.

Drilling bits are made up materials such as tungsten carbide, diamond for increasing the steel bits strength. Based on specific drilling requirements, different drilling bits are employed for desired results. It is possible that, for a single well construction, different drilling bits would be used to overcome any challenges in well drilling. On the other hand, drilling bits have to be changed on the basis of wear and tear as well. Usually drilling bits are selected based on the type of formation encountered by the drilling operators, and based on the type of drilling activity as well. With increased oil and gas exploration activities in recent time, the market for drilling bits is expected to witness a significant growth during the forecast period.


Global increasing demand for energy has resulted in rapid increase in the offshore drilling activities to meet the increasing demand, which ultimately has provided significant boost to the drill bits market. Moreover, new oil reserve discoveries increase the drilling and exploration activities in coming years which upsurge the demand for the market. However, environmental risks and strict government regulations for drilling as well as increasing focus on renewable energy may hinder the market growth of the market.

Industry News


  • In September 2017, Halliburton has launched GeoTech HE, a robust drill bit that incorporates new features and materials to deliver enhanced performance and increased reliability in high energy drilling systems characterized by very high weight-on-bit and drilling torque.
  • In April 2017, BP Oman and Modus Oman Drilling Systems signing a two year supply contract of Modus ALMAS PDC drill bits for BP Oman. The signing marks the outcome of 6 months of successful field trials and outstanding performance of ALMAS PDC drill bits with BP Oman.

Ulterra is a leading manufacturer of polycrystalline diamond compact ("PDC") drill bits for the oil and gas industry. The Company was owned by ESCO Corporation.


In 2020, the automatic cleaning segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period: MRFR


By Type:


On the basis of Type, the market is segmented into fixed cutter bits, and roller cone cutter bits. The fixed cutter bits are further sub segmented into polycrystalline diamond bits, and natural diamond bits. The roller cone cutter bits are further divided into milled-tooth bits, and tungsten carbide inserts. Among these, the fixed cutter bits segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR during the forecast period. With advancement in unconventional drilling techniques such as horizontal and vertical drilling activities, drilling activities are expected to witness further increase, which in turn would drive the market for drilling bits.


By Application:


Based on application, the market is segmented into on shore drilling, and off shore drilling. Among these, the onshore drilling application is expected to contribute the most with increasing onshore drilling activities across various regions, around the globe. With directionless drilling, new oil and gas sources are drilled in previous unexplored and unconventional regions. This is expected to drive the market for drilling bits. However, stringent government regulations surrounding the onshore drilling activities are expected to act as a restraint for the drilling bits market.
