Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) Market Overview:
Global Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) Market was valued at $486 million in 2015, and is expected to reach $819 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 7.9% from 2016 to 2022.
Distributed temperature sensing (DTS) is a real-time temperature measurement technique that provides continuous monitoring for the entire length of the cable covering all the critical measurement points. A DTS system was mainly developed for the oil & gas industry to assist reservoir engineers in optimizing the monitoring techniques. The growth of DTS market is attributed to the supportive government policies pertaining to safety. Moreover, high demand from oil & gas industry, coupled with high reliability and wide coverage of DTS systems, is expected to fuel the market growth significantly. However, complex fault detection and troubleshooting process hinder the market growth. Rise in investment in smart grid technology and power industry is expected to offer new opportunities for market expansion.
The DTS industry is consolidated with top five industry participants occupying a significant market share. These players have adopted product launches, expansions, acquisitions, partnerships, and agreements as their key strategies to strengthen their market position and expand their geographical presence.
Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) Market Segment Review
The global DTS market is segmented on the basis of fiber type, operating principle, and application. The fiber segment is bifurcated into single-mode and multimode fibers. Based on the operating principle, the market is divided into optical time domain reflectometry (OTDR) and optical frequency domain reflectometry (OFDR). Application-wise, it is classified into oil & gas production, power cable monitoring, pipeline leakage detection, fire detection, environmental monitoring, and other applications. Geographically, it is analyzed across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
Global DTS Market Scenario
Distributed temperature sensing has become an integral part of various industries. It carries out real-time downhole monitoring to enhance the operational performances of the assets. Further, it enables the reservoir engineers to gain better understanding of the production dynamics and accordingly improve recovery, leading to improved profits. Oil & gas and power cable monitoring industries constituted the largest market share, owing to impending need of monitoring of wells & reservoirs and temperature distribution in long-distance power lines.
Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) Market Top Investment Pockets
Oil & gas production and power cable monitoring hold maximum market potential for DTS. These two applications have generated substantial revenue and are expected to witness high growth rates during the forecast period. Moreover, environmental monitoring and fire detection segments are analyzed to be the most attractive applications of the DTS market.
Increase in rules and Regulations Pertaining Safety Standards
Supportive government policies pertaining to safety and increase in industrialization & construction activities, mainly in technologically advancing countries such as China, India, and Brazil, drive the implementation of DTS systems rapidly. DTS system provides temperature details along the length of the cable, thus enhancing the safety of equipment and surroundings. Various countries are extensively participating in formulating strict and obligatory OSH standards and legislations to ensure operational safety. For instance, in June 2014, the EU adopted a directive on safety of offshore oil & gas operations, which covers the whole life cycle of all exploration and production activities from design to the final removal of an oil or gas installation. Therefore, increasing safety norms and supportive government policies globally have accelerated the growth of the DTS market.
