The South Korea Oil & Gas Market Size is Expected to Hold a Significant Share by 2032, at a CAGR of 1.42% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.


Market Overview

Pipelines, refineries, drilling platforms, terminals, storage facilities, and processing plants are examples of oil and gas infrastructure. Growing exploration and production activities along with rising natural gas demand are expected to benefit the business environment. Since natural gas is a cleaner option than coal and oil, the market is seeing a boost in demand. Because of its reduced carbon emissions, natural gas is regarded as a transitional fuel and is therefore a desirable option for transportation, industry, and power generation. Natural gas is being promoted by governments all over the world as a component of their energy transition plans to lower greenhouse gas emissions. The development of sophisticated extraction techniques, such as shale gas extraction, and the expansion of the trade in liquefied natural gas (LNG) further drive the demand for natural gas, thereby supporting the oil and gas market in South Korea. Furthermore, the potential of the market has increased due to the realization of unconventional oil and gas resources through the use of drilling technologies like hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling. Domestic and foreign investment in the oil and gas sector is encouraged by the government of South Korea's initiatives, which include tax incentives and regulatory changes.

Driving Factors

Industry growth will be influenced by the ongoing utilization of oil and natural gas facilities as well as the enhancement of storage operations as a result of the growing demand for natural gas in a variety of applications. The market demand will be positively impacted by an increase in the need for refined petroleum products, such as gasoline, diesel fuel, kerosene, fuel oil, and liquified natural gas. Nonetheless, the market outlook will be driven by the growing demand for cutting-edge technological solutions that operate more safely in remote locations in South Korea.


Restraining Factors

The oil and gas industry are facing more difficulties due to the growing utilization of efficient and affordable renewable energy sources such as geothermal, wind, and solar power. Oil and gas prices are declining as a result of the shift to renewable energy, which is preventing businesses from making new project investments and increasing their production capabilities. The market for gas and oil pumps is being directly impacted by this decrease in capital expenditures, which could result in a decline in the demand for pump systems. Thus, such factors are hampering the market growth in the forecast period.
