Seismic Survey Market by Service (Data Acquisition (Land, Marine, and Air-Borne), Data Processing, and Interpretation), Technology (2D imaging, 3D imaging, and 4D imaging), and Region - Global Forecast to 2022

“The seismic survey market is expected to reach USD 9.28 billion by 2022”
The seismic survey market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 7.54 billion in 2017 to a projected USD 9.28 billion by 2022. The main driving factors for the growth of the seismic survey market are the demand for seismic technology in brownfield projects and the use of seismic technology in shale gas exploration. The reduction in investments and budgets for exploration and production (E&P) due to the crash of oil prices would be a restraint for the seismic survey market.

“The data processing and interpretation market would grow at a faster pace during the forecast period”
The market for data processing and interpretation is expected to grow at a significant pace during the forecast period. The demand for data processing and interpretation is increasing as oil & gas companies utilize these software services to explore new hydrocarbon fields. The advances in technology are useful to operators and oil & gas service companies during the exploration of mature oilfields. Oil & gas companies are currently investing in fields that have already been explored with the help of data processing and interpretation. Thus, the demand for data processing and interpretation increases as oil & gas companies begin exploring brownfields projects.

“The African market is the fastest-growing seismic survey market”
There are untapped reserves of oil & gas in Africa. Oil & gas companies are investing in economical reserves due to the slump in oil prices. The demand for seismic surveys is expected to grow as unconventional reserves are explored. A majority of the oil production in Africa takes place in Nigeria, Egypt, Angola, and Algeria.
