Global OSV Market Report 2013-2018 Released

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Offshore Support Vessel Market Report 2013-2018" report to their offering, with excerpts from the prospectus as follows: This market is dependent on offshore exploration and production activities, which is one of the key driving factors.

Offshore support vessel manufacturers are focusing on R&D in order to develop new and improved vessels for offshore platforms, which offer more distinguished and revolutionary features such as Dynamic positioning (DP) with better efficiency and navigational ability. Expansion and mergers and acquisitions into new and emerging markets such as APAC, North-West Europe, and South America will continue to be the key for success for offshore support vessel manufacturers and managers to increase their overall sales and revenue. Tidewater (U.S.) is one of the key players in the offshore support vessel market. It holds significant share of the market, followed by Edison Chouest (U.S.) and Seacor Marine (U.S.). The market is mostly fragmented with a large number of small support vessel companies. For this report, the major players in the market are identified through secondary and primary research, based on which their market shares are evaluated
