The major drivers driving the market include the increased penetration of Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) and data sharing among various oil and gas installations and need to assess the vulnerabilities of variety of oil and gas installations.

The exploration and drilling security market is expected to have the largest market share and dominate the oil and gas security market from 2015 to 2020 as the data-driven security is fueling the market to grow. Incident response and disaster management is expected to play a key role in changing the oil and gas security landscape and will grow at the highest growth rate during the forecast period as there is an increased need among oil and gas installations to deploy tools to conduct vulnerability assessment and management.

Risk management services is the fastest growing service type in the oil and gas security and service market as it benefits organizations with a foolproof roadmap to conduct the risk assessment of vital capital projects and deploy effective counter measures in case of an emergency situation. Since, most of the oil and gas installations are located on geographically diverse locations, it is necessary to ensure the integrity and confidentiality of the flow of operational data, and it is also necessary to deploy a robust network security system. Therefore, the network security for oil and gas installations is growing at a remarkable rate.

North America accounts for the largest market share of 35.29% of the overall oil and gas security market in 2015, followed by Europe. This is due to the faster adoption rates of oil and gas security solutions by organizations in the region to streamline business operations, vulnerability management, and privacy risk management and improve business continuity management. Emerging advancements in technology and the increasing demand for stricter security and authentication processes to protect sensitive data are the major factors driving the market in North America.

Companies such as Intel Security, Symantec Corporation, Honeywell International, Inc., Microsoft Corporation, Siemens AG, and UTC are upgrading legacy systems of enterprises with new innovative oil and gas security solutions in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region.

Some of the crucial factors that restrain the oil and gas security and service market are existing base of oil and gas security solutions and the risk associated with the Shadow IT infrastructure. Most of the oil and gas enterprises are slowly moving toward the deployment of physical and network security solutions, whereas a major chunk of enterprises relies on the existing security solutions involving simple biometrics or a username and password. Most of the enterprises are concerned with the handling of sensitive organizational content and are very serious regarding the data access policies.
