Supply Chain Analysis Helps a Drilling Rig Manufacturer to Identify Appropriate Supply Chain Strategies

May 1, 2018

Overview of the drilling rig manufacturing space

Over the past few years, the drilling rig market has started moving from a manufacturing-based business model to a more service-oriented business model. As a result, prominent players in the drilling rig market are redefining their business models to improve their production capabilities. However, drilling rig companies have started experiencing setbacks in terms of losses faced and low return on investments. Consequently, firms operating in this industry space have begun adopting new technologies to identify potential value opportunities. The growth prospects of the drilling rig manufacturing industry are spurred by the increasing mining and oil and gas extraction activities around the globe.

Although the drilling rig manufacturing industry is expected to display substantial growth in the coming years, a few factors are expected to influence the growth prospects of the industry. Some of the elements include:

  • Shortage of raw materials: With the exponential growth in mining and oil and gas activities over the last few years, there are supply shortages for the products among the end-users of this industry. As a result, firms are forced to maintain supply consistency in their products offered.
  • Innovations: Several drilling rig companies are in the early stage of growth and are heavily relying on obsolete techniques to meet the end-user requirements. Nevertheless, companies have started using innovations in their production capabilities due to the advances in technology. As a result, it becomes essential for players in this industry to efficiently meet the business requirements.

Such factors are compelling firms in the drilling rig manufacturing space to leverage the use of supply chain analysis solutions. request free proposalSupply chain analysis solutions help companies to capture the competitive advantage and increase overall profit.
