Executive Summary

The existing economic environment is unfavorable for the oil and gas industry, and customer confidence levels remain constant in H1 2016 (January 2016- June 2016).

Over the next six months the industry would increase its expenditure towards mergers and acquisitions. Moreover, oil and gas companies operating in North America and Europe forecast budget allocation for offshore equipment to remain flat in 2016, compared to 2015.
