Oil Exploration to Underline Growth in the Marine Seismic Equipment and Acquisition Market

One of the major influences on global marine seismic equipment and acquisition market is the demand generated by oil and gas industry. The industry is known to use seismic services and analytics for various activities such as exploration.

It is pertinent to note here the various lease rounds carried out for third year in a row – close to 50 in number and record breaking in every sense. Some of the regions which are acting as hotbeds of exploration activity are Latin America, Africa, and the chart is topped by the Mediterranean region.

It is also worth noting here that conventional discoveries are on a high curve, and broke a four-year record in 2019 in terms of BOE – Barrels of Oil Equivalent. The number in 2019 was 12.2 billion barrels BOE. From the new regional hotspots, 26 discoveries (100 BOE) were made.

As per a Transparency Market Research study, the global marine seismic equipment and acquisition market will grow at a steady 4.50% CAGR (Compound Annual Growth Rate) in the equipment segment in the period starting 2016, and ending 2024. The opportunities that are set to arise in the period would be worth USD 533.9 million by the end of this period. And, over the same period, the market for seismic acquisition will grow at growth rate of 5.30%, compounded annually. Again, this will pull the market worth up from USD 3.5 billion to USD 5.6 billion.

Europe to Lead the Global Marine Seismic Equipment and Acquisition Market over the Forecast Period

A hefty USD 944.1 million and USD 83.1 million was generated by Europe in 2015, dominating the marine seismic acquisition market and seismic equipment market respectively. The trend is set to continue. And, as per analysts of the global marine seismic equipment and acquisition market, this growth is attributable to rising demand for oil reserves.

It is also pertinent to note that over the coming few years, the North American region will also show notable growth owing to increase in activity in certain industries like Construction, Mining, and Oil and Gas.

Lucrative opportunities will arise in Middle East and Africa, keeping the global marine seismic equipment and acquisition market players hooked to itself over the forecast period. One of the reasons supporting growth in the region will be rising activity in terms of oil exploration activity in the region over the forecast period.
