Growth in oil prices after a prolonged slump in addition to growing oil demand expected to be the primary market driver 

The seismic survey equipment market is primarily driven by the increase in oil prices after experiencing a prolonged slump since June 2014. The increase in oil prices have resulted in the steady rise in exploration and production (E&P) activities by major oil companies. This was mainly due to the strong global demand which is gradually drawing down the excess supplies, according to the World Economic Forum. The increase in exploration and production activity will result in the increase in the number of seismic surveys being carried out which will drive the market growth. Seismic survey is a method which is used to study the subsurface properties and help in locating various minerals and size of oil and gas reservoirs. The equipment used for carrying out the seismic survey is referred to as seismic survey equipment.

As the global oil demand rises especially from the developing countries, E&P companies will need to search for newer areas to locate oil underneath the land and sea. This will positively affect the seismic survey equipment market. However, the uncertain nature of oil prices is considered to be a hindrance for the growth of the seismic survey market. The unexpected downturn in oil prices can result in less exploration and production activity and decrease the investments by oil & gas companies. This in turn impacts the seismic survey equipment providers negatively. However, strong demand for oil particularly from the growing economies is expected to fuel the seismic survey market growth.      

Launching of new product models by key players in the market can be seen as a prevalent trend across regions 

A key trend in the seismic survey equipment market is the launching of new product models in a bid to gain competitive edge over peers. For instance, in September 2017, Wireless Seismic, Inc., announced the launch of RT3, a seismic recording system having the capability of ultra-high channel count of about more than 2,50,000 seismic channels and features next-generation radio technology of WSI. Also, key players in the geophysical survey space are forming strategic partnerships with peers in order to expand their geographical footprint and increase their client base. For instance, in April 2018, Fairfield Nodal announced the acquisition of Geokinetics Inc. which is a global seismic solutions provider to oil & gas industries.

3D technology segment to be the major revenue generating segment in 2026 

Based on technology, the market has been divided into 2D, 3D, and 4D. In 2017, the 3D segment was the topmost revenue generating segment. 3D seismic data is much easier to interpret and understand and hence is widely used for gathering seismic data. The 4D segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 4.83% from 2018-2026.

Offshore segment to grow at a faster pace over the forecast period 

The seismic survey that is carried out in marine areas is referred to as offshore seismic survey. There are still large arenas underwater that remain unexplored for the production of oil & gas. Hence, considerable investments are being made to carry out offshore seismic survey. For instance, in May 2018, TGS-NOPEC Geophysical Company L.P. completed the data acquisition of 10,000 km 2D long offset broadband multi-client seismic survey in the Egyptian Red Sea. This task was a part of a project which was awarded to TGS and Schlumberger in December 2017. The offshore segment is expected to expand at a significant CAGR of 4.74% over the forecast period.
