Major Drivers of Geothermal Drilling Rig Market

The consumption of electricity has been rising significantly across the globe since the last few years due to rapid urbanization, increase in investments in industrial infrastructure, and economic growth. The increase in demand for electricity and enactment of strict government regulations to limit carbon emissions from the power sector are compelling companies to introduce highly effective and pollution-free energy generation methods. Geothermal energy is a prominent alternative for fossil fuel. Electricity generation through the utilization of geothermal energy increased by 5% in 2018, more than the average growth in the previous five years. Thus, growth in the production of geothermal energy across the globe is expected to drive the global geothermal drilling rig market during the forecast period, as geothermal drilling rigs are used to drill boreholes to extract the Earth’s heat.
