Report Description

The Global Leak Detection and Repair
is Expected to Display an Elevated CAGR of ~10% over the forecast period (2021-2027)

A rise in onshore and offshore oil & gas exploration activities coupled with the growing emphasis on renewable energy across countries is one of the prominent reasons driving the demand of the leak detection and repair market. Moreover, increasing focus on advanced and portable leak detectors to maintain higher safety standards is also driving the growth of the market.  Moreover, With the expanding pipeline network and rising demand for fossil fuels, the global oil and gas leak detection system market is likely to gain traction. The global pipeline network, which is responsible for the movement of oil and gas products around the globe, is approximately 3.5 million kilometers long. Pipelines are regarded as the safest and most efficient means of transporting hydrocarbons because they are toxic in nature and any spills or leakage can result in significant losses for both the product owner and the environment.

Moreover, various government policies in these several countries support the use of cleaner fuels which in turn is leading to the increased production of natural gas across countries. As per BP Stats, the United States produced 740.3 billion cubic meters in 2015 which increased to 914.6 billion cubic meters in 2020.  Moreover, surging activities in Mining oil and gas extraction, etc. in the countries is also propelling the demand for the LDAR. As of May 2021 in the United States, there are about 570,000 people employed in mining, quarrying, and oil and gas extraction

Global Natural Gas Production (in Billion Cubic Meters), 2014-2020

Aeris Technologies, Inc., Bridger Photonics, Inc., LI-COR, Inc., ABB Ltd., Palo Alto Research Center, Maxion Technologies, Inc., Rebellion Photonics, Physical Sciences, Inc., Avitas Systems, Precision Hawk, etc., are some of the prominent players operating in the leak detection and repair market.
