Water Pipeline Leak Detection Systems Market Outlook - 2027

The global water pipeline leak detection systems market size is expected to reach $2,349.6 million in 2027, from $1,748.6 million in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2020 to 2027. Water pipeline leak detection systems are utilized to determine the location of the leak in water transmission pipelines. Around 30% to 50% of water is lost through the aging pipelines, which also contributes toward loss of revenue. Water pipeline leak detection systems are available for both underground and over ground water pipelines to precisely locate and check the severity of pipeline leak.

The scarcity of water is a rising global concern mainly owing to the shortage of physical water required for the growing population. According to the World Health Organization (WHO) this is mainly caused due to failure of institutions to provide regular supply of water or because of lack of proper infrastructure. More than 2 billion population globally is currently staying in countries with high water stress as per the 2018 statistics provided by the United Nations (UN). In order to tackle this problem, it is necessary to conserve and utilize water safely. Installation of proper water pipeline leak detection systems assist in specifying the leakages in installed water pipes, which ultimately avoids the wastage of water through cracks and holes. Therefore, the increasing scarcity of water is propelling the demand for water wastage solutions, which in turn drives the market. Moreover, the developed countries such as the U.S., the UK, and others, have an elaborate water infrastructure developed during 1970. However, this water infrastructure is aging with time, causing problems such as pipe corrosion, breakage, formation of cracks, and others. The installation of water pipeline leak detection systems assist in detecting the location of leakages in these aging water transit pipelines and help in avoiding wastage of clean treated water. Thus, the aging water infrastructure is creating a demand for sophisticated leak detection systems, which drives the growth of the market.

However, the inefficient water transportation system in developing countries along with water scarcity, and low funds for installation of pipeline leak protection and detection causes extreme loss of water. The high costs of water pipeline leak detection systems and lack of awareness between governments of developing countries is restraining the growth of the market. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has shut-down the production and sales of various products in the water pipeline leak detection systems industry, mainly owing to the prolonged lockdown in major global countries including the U.S., Italy, the UK, and others. This has hampered the growth of water pipeline leak detection systems market significantly within the last few months, as is likely to continue during 2020. 

On the contrary, in recent years, pipeline leak detection systems have undergone various technological advancements by adoption of computerized systems and digital survey systems. The traditional acoustic detection sensors are upgraded with more efficient sound detection functions which has increased their efficiency. Introduction and implementation of such advance technologies are likely to create lucrative opportunities for the growth of water pipeline leak detection systems market during the forecast period.

Analyst Review

Water leakage causes unnecessary wastage of revenue which is generally incurred on conveyance and treatment of water. These expenses include costs of electricity for conveyance and treatment, chemicals, and others. The use of water pipeline leak detection systems can curb these expenses by indicating the correct location of leakage in a pipe which might get severe with time. 

The aging water infrastructure, population stress, and water shortages are extremely cost consuming, which necessitates the use of proper leak detection systems in water pipelines. Aging pipes increase the probabilities of bursting, leaking, and pipe failures, however, efficient use of leak detection systems along with periodical audits can assist in reducing the amount of water wastage. Moreover, the acoustic leak detection systems are upgraded with more advanced technologies to reduce non-revenue water. The products such as ‘Noise Loggers’ collect leakage location data and calculate averages over time. In addition, with the use of noise sensors, the detection can process can be conducted for 24 hours in a day and especially at night when external noises from traffic, railways, weather, and others are minimum. Furthermore, the sensors such as ultrasonic leak detection sensor, which works on the electro-scan technology is particularly useful for leak detection in non-metallic pipes. With the increased use of computerized data logging, and services such as the GPS, unmanned aerial vehicles such as drones and others, the intensity of water leakage and water scarcity can be reduced significantly. 

Many competitors in the water pipeline leak detection systems market adopted product launch as their key developmental strategy to expand their geographical foothold and upgrade their product technologies. For instance, in January 2020, Gutermann AG based in Germany launched the Zonescan NB-IoT-based water leak detection technology. It is the world’s first water leak detection noise logger, which is based on the Narrowband Internet of Things (NB-IoT) for permanent monitoring of water distribution mains.
