Report Description

Hydropower is the most mature, reliable and cost-effective renewable power generation technology where power is derived from the energy of water moving from higher to lower elevations. It is a proven, anticipated, and typically price-competitive technology. Hydropower has one of the best efficiencies of conversion of all known energy sources (water to wire 90 percent efficiency). Though it requires comparatively high initial investment, it has a long service life with very low operational and maintenance costs. The major hydropower project types are: Large Hydropower and Small Hydropower. There is no worldwide consensus on classification by project size (installed capacity, MW) due to varying development policies in different countries.

TechNavio’s analysts forecast the Global Hydropower market will grow at a CAGR of 4.35 percent over the period 2013-2018.

Global Downhole Drilling Tools Market 2015-2019

Drilling is simply a process of making a holes in a surface for the extraction of oil and gas; these holes drilled for the extraction of oil is known as oil wells. Oil well is created by drilling a hole of 12 cm to 1 m in diameter with the help of a drill rig, which rotates the drill string with the other downhole drilling tools attached to it. The hole drilled is then cemented to maintain the well integrity and also isolates the formation fluids and high pressure zones from each other and the surface. Drilling downhole tools facilitate the drilling process and counter significant challenges associated with drilling such as extreme depth, high temperatures, and pressure differentials. Downhole drilling tools guide or steer the wells through small reservoir by changing the trajectory of the......
