The global Offshore helicopter services market share is expected to showcase exponential growth by reaching USD 3,227.7 million by 2026, while exhibiting a CAGR of 3.17% during the forecast period. Escalating demand for oil and gas worldwide will be the primary growth factor driving this market

The oil & gas helicopter services market growth is premised on the consistently rising demand for oil and gas as primary energy and power sources. According to the International Energy Agency (IEA), in third quarter of 2019, the global demand for oil rose to 1.1 million barrels a day, more than doubling from 435,000 barrels per day from the preceding quarter of the same year. Similarly, the IEA states that global natural gas consumption rose by 4.6% in 2018 from 2017 levels and by 2030, the demand will spike as natural gas will provide a gateway from oil and coal. Thus, steady rise in offshore oil and gas exploration operations to meet the surging demand will drive the Offshore Helicopter Services Market trends.

Market Restraint
Tight Regulations on Helicopter Services to Stem Growth
Aviation regulatory bodies have framed tough and rigid rules and laws for operators in the aerospace industry. For instance, helicopter operators need to apply for certification from the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to carry out offshore services. These operators need to abide by stringent norms governing safety of pilots and passengers, transportation of cargo, and inspection, among others. Getting nod from the FAA is a time-consuming process, making it difficult for operators to establish themselves. The case is similar in India where the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) has set up tight rules and regulations for monitoring aviation services in general and helicopter services in particular. As a result, the smooth growth trajectory of this market is thwarted by regulatory bumps and is likely to restrict its expansion in the coming years.
