Distributed Buoyancy Modules Market: Development Trends, Key Manufacturers and Competitive Analysis 2026


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/15/2019 -- Distributed Buoyancy Modules Market: Overview

The offshore oil & gas sector is slated to witness a rebound after drastic decline in prices of oil and gas in the last few of years. Increased risks associated with offshore drilling and stricter regulations have propelled the demand for distributed buoyancy modules for use in offshore oil and gas platforms.  Buoyancy element is composed of the syntactic foam which is encapsulated in external skin made of polyethylene. Flexible pipes used in offshore oil and gas production require specific geometric configuration to reduce tension loads in offshore platforms.
Distributed buoyancy modules allow achieving and maintaining these particular configurations by being fixed to the outside of the riser. Properties of the syntactic foam are optimized to reach the required buoyancy at the operating water depth for supporting offshore oil and gas platforms.

Distributed Buoyancy Modules Market: Key Segments

In the offshore industry, buoyancy modules are required so as to provide uplift to subsea risers, pipelines, cables, and umbilical and other structures. Discreet buoyancy units called distributed buoyancy modules (DBMs) are attached to floating conduits. The distributed buoyancy modules market has been segmented based on component, application, and region. Based on component, the distributed buoyancy modules market can be classified into clamp and floatation units. A clamp is designed to act as an interface between the conduit and the floatation column in an offshore platform. Based on application, the distributed buoyancy modules market can be divided into deep buoyancy systems, insulated risers, and offshore platforms.

Distributed buoyancy modules offer multiple benefits. It reduces top tension loads. It helps in maintaining project-specific riser configuration. It is fast, efficient, and it has safe offshore installation. It helps reduce the weight of the pipeline during installation. Discrete buoyancy modules can be strapped to the pipeline on board the vessel or in the case of a shore pull installed on land.

Distributed Buoyancy Modules Market: Drivers & Restraints

A key restraint for the distributed buoyancy modules market is that excess usage of these modules can prove to be capital-intensive. Another restraint is high cost of investment and production of distributed buoyancy modules. The subsea ecosystem is hampered, as distributed buoyancy modules are placed on the subsea structure or vessel platform. Repairing the damaged distributed buoyancy modules situated deep in the ocean bed is a tedious task.
