Top 5 Suppliers in Global Downstream Oil & Gas Industry Process Plant Equipment Market 2016-2020: Technavio


announced the top five suppliers in their recent Global Downstream Oil & Gas Industry Process Plant Equipment Market
report through 2020. This research report also lists 10 other top vendors expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

Global downstream oil and gas industry processing plant equipment accounted for 54.75% of the market in 2015 and is expected to maintain its dominance at 59.19% by 2020.

The processing plant equipment in the downstream oil and gas industry is governed by two types of equipment sales. The first concerns greenfield projects, which refer to the construction of new refineries. Equipment sales for an entirely new project are between $ 1.9 billion and $ 3.9 billion.

The second type of equipment sale concerns the modernization of refineries to increase their complexity index. This is the addition of secondary processing units such as hydrocrackers, hydrotreaters, catalytic reformers, amine processing units and visbreakers.

Competitive landscape of suppliers

Processing plant equipment in downstream refining industry is typically supplied by engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) players under fixed price contracts. As these units of equipment are highly technology driven and require precision in their manufacture and commissioning, they are usually supplied by major EPC suppliers who specialize in building refineries from the local level as well as in modernization of factories by attaching specific units for secondary treatment. The overall competition in this market is quite intense with several major players in the market. A key feature of this industry is that it is dominated by large multinational companies that have extensive experience in construction
not only refineries, but also other critical areas such as petrochemical units, upstream exploration units, gasification units and LNG terminals.

Sayani Roy, industry expert at Technavio for research on oil and gas, says, “A key trend in recent refinery construction is to build the plant off-site in modules and fabricate the structure on-site. EPC companies do not have to manufacture the entire installation themselves. Sometimes the vendors prefer to outsource the manufacturing of the components to actors with good manufacturing capabilities while it acts as the management company itself. For example, Saipem
upon completion of a hydrocracking project in which 23 very large modules were subcontracted to a contractor in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
