Geophysical Services Market Research, 2031

The global geophysical services market size was valued at $14.4 billion in 2021, and geophysical services industry is projected to reach $21.4 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2022 to 2031.

Geophysical services collect systematic data from earth surface for monitoring various electric magnetic fields, site characterization, and exploration of potential mines, oil & gas minerals. Geophysical services are widely carried out in oil & gas, mining, and other industries to exploit potential reserves. It is one of the most economic methods for discovering natural resources to meet the rising demand for energy and consumer goods.

Increasing demand for oil & gas has led to search for hydrocarbon exploration, which includes oil and natural gas deposits below surface by geophysicists. The major advantages of geophysical services is that  through various detection technologies it can estimate the oil and gas volume in place and the government or private individual can plan the field developed and production of a reservoir oil & gas.

Increase in demand for oil & gas is a major driving factor for growth of the global seismic survey. The presence of advantages of seismic survey services such as reduction of probability of drilling dry wells, hence preventing further drilling and minimizing environmental effects of oil & gas exploration is propelling the growth of seismic technology in geophysical services market. Furthermore, this technology has wide range of application in mining sector and in disaster management such as in earthquake, as this technology can save lives by giving early warning to the people living in the earthquake zone. The presence of these advantages and demand for minerals and oil & gas in the modern society will provide ample opportunities for the development of the market.

Geophysical Services Market by Type

The marine based survey segment dominates the global geophysical services market. Marine survey is also known as hydrographic survey. It is the process of measuring several factors under the surface of water. The survey can be performed on still water as well as running water. The scope of application of marine based survey is in the construction of sea defense works and harbors. The rise in the industrial hubs and growing foreign direct investment in all major manufacturing sectors across emerging economies such as China, India, Brazil, and Southeast Asian countries are projected to fuel the demand for various mineral resources. The decline in land surface resource has led to increase in the exploration of mineral resources in the marine areas. The increase in investment from government and top mineral giants for marine exploration has driven the demand for marine based survey. The presence of above mentioned advantages will drive the growth of the market.

Geophysical Services Market by End Use

The oil & gas segment dominates the global geophysical services market. In oil & gas industries geophysics play a critical role where data are used by geophysical scientists to understand the presence, nature and size of subsurface rock layers and potential reservoirs with oil wells. This industry has huge demand for geophysical methods such as gravity, magnetics, and 2D seismic. These technologies are used for subsurface geohazards characterization, leak location and monitoring and other related data. The presence of the increase in the demand for the oil & gas industries based products in the power and transportation sector will drive the demand for geophysical services market. The decline in the resource on the surface of landmass has led to the exploration of oil resources in the marine seabed which led to the increase in the demand for marine based geophysical services. The presence of the demand of oil & gas products in various sectors power generation, as a fuel for engine in transporting vehicles; owing to the above mentioned demand will provide ample opportunities for the development for the geophysical services market.

Geophysical Services Market by Region

North America is analyzed across the U.S., Canada, and Mexico U.S. and Canada are the major players in this region. The North America geophysical services market revenue is estimated to surpass USD 8.6 billion by 2031. The availability of abundant & affordable natural gas along with a shifting focus toward clean energy generation will foster the market outlook. The adoption of geophysical services on account of growing investments in mineral & mining industries, rising instability in crude oil prices and increasing usage of aerial based geophysical surveys. Moreover, minerals are being excavated at a faster rate in order to meet the needs for the rising population.
