Distributed Acoustic Sensing Market

The technology of distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) provides acoustic energy measurement along the length of an optical fiber cable. DAS technology provides a robust vertical monitoring solution such as military, oil & gas, infrastructure, and transport. For its detection specifications, DAS technology depends on an optical fiber and is thus independent of any electromagnetic interference and also has a long-range, rendering the technology highly helpful in hazardous settings. The performance and efficiency of DAS materials have significantly enhanced with the growth of the integrated optical fiber sensor technique.

The Oil & Gas Industry is the major end-user of acoustic sensing technology. Management of pipeline integrity is a significant application for the oil & gas industry. The technology offers long-range surveillance of the pipeline to prevent any leakage and also detects operations of third parties that could damage the pipelines. Oilfield services are technology's fast-growing applications. Other important technology applications are the monitoring of critical infrastructure sites, border surveillance and traffic monitoring. Global energy demand is expected to rise by 50% by the end of 2030, according to the International Energy Agency's forecast. There is an urgent need to tap new and unexplored fossil fuel resources due to such a high demand for energy. Currently, energy production and transportation are taking shape in extremely complicated circumstances such as soil instability, rising tectonic activity, ultra-deepwater operations, and having care not to adversely affect fisheries and terrestrial fauna, human intrusion hazards, etc. Besides, there is a need for real-time complex LNG assets control and high temperatures employed in steam enhanced heavy oil recovery methods. Furthermore, in steam-enhanced light petroleum retrieval techniques, there is a need for real-time, complicated LNG resources monitoring and elevated altitudes. Because of all these considerations, distributed acoustic sensing or fiber optic sensors have appeared as a flexible and cost-effective method for assessing the mechanical fitness of big constructions and performing effective harm assessments, both of which are compulsory in expanding the energy-efficient solutions.

The Middle East region is the biggest contributor to the distributed acoustic sensing market owing to the increasing application of acoustic sensors in the oil & gas industry. The Asia Pacific Market is growing at the highest rate with regards to distributed acoustic sensing market due to increasing exploration & refining activities across the region spurring the demand for acoustic sensors.

Key Factors Impacting the Growth of Distributed Acoustic Sensing Market:

    • Increasing demand across the oil & gas industry.
    • Decreasing oil prices around the world
    • Increasing demand in high-temperature regions.

Key Developments in the Distributed Acoustic Sensing Market:

    • In 2015, Halliburton completed the acquisition of the assets of the Opt phase, a provider of interferometry fiber optic sensing solutions, including distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) interrogation systems.
    • In 2017, Scientists at the Department of Energy's Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have shown for the first time that dark fiber - the vast network of unused fiber-optic cables installed throughout the country and the world - can be used as sensors for detecting earthquakes, the presence of groundwater, changes in permafrost conditions, and a variety of other subsurface activity.
