Executive summary

M2M is an abbreviation for machine-to-machine, or technology that supports wired or wireless communication between devices. M2M technology has evolved from telemetry which is a technology that allows the remote measurement and reporting of information of interest to the system operator. Supervisory Control And Data Acquisition (SCADA) systems are centralized systems that utilize telemetry to monitor and control remote facilities. SCADA, telemetry and M2M solutions can be found throughout the oil & gas value chain including applications such as drill and well monitoring, fiscal metering and pipeline monitoring. The oil & gas industry is characterized by remote and inaccessible facilities where wireless communication in many cases is the only viable option for transferring M2M data. Wireless technologies such as private radio, cellular and satellite communication can provide ubiquitous online connectivity at reasonable cost and deliver very high performance, as well as excellent availability. All of these components combined enable the delivery of operations management, equipment management and regulatory compliance applications linking remote equipment and enterprise IT systems. Berg Insight is of the opinion that the market for wireless M2M applications in the oil & gas industry has entered a growth phase that will last for several years to come. Berg Insight estimates that the shipments of oil & gas M2M devices with cellular or satellite communication capabilities reached 33,000 worldwide in 2011. Growing at a compound annual growth rate of 30.7 percent, the shipments are expected to reach 126,000 in 2016. Compound annual growth rates for cellular and satellite based devices will be 32.5 percent and 26.8 percent respectively during the same period. The installed base of active oil & gas M2M devices is forecasted to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 21.5 percent from 164,000 units at the end of 2011 to 435,000 units by 2016. The installed base of cellular and satellite based M2M devices in 2016 are forecasted to be 275,000 units and 160,000 units respectively. Berg Insight anticipates that on-shore well field equipment monitoring and in-land pipeline monitoring will be the top two applications for wireless M2M in the oil & gas industry
