Proving to be a hindrance to the growth of oil and gas leak detection equipment market is volatile oil prices that hamper execution of new pipeline projects. Generally, new pipeline projects are planned are put under construction if only oil prices are high enough for the project to be profitable. However, unforeseen changes in oil prices such as the recent drop in oil prices in 2015, has proved to be detrimental with considerable cut short in pipeline length for new as well as under-construction pipelines.
Nevertheless, the global is expected to be benefitted from growth opportunities that are expected to come to the fore. Pipeline projects planned in 2015 that would be more than 100,000 miles of pipelines is expected to present new opportunities to the global oil and gas pipeline leak detection equipment market. Furthermore, technological advances in pipeline leak detection systems that is aimed to improve the integrity of pipelines with fewer accidents and low downtime will benefit the growth of this market.
Environmental concerns and policies regarding pipeline leakages is the prime factor driving the global oil and gas pipeline leak detection equipment market. This is because past incidents of pipeline leakage have been detrimental to the extent that it has wiped off complete flora and fauna of the leak site. Obligations on part of pipeline operators after a leak has happened is another important factor driving this market. Pipeline operators not only suffer business losses and but also need to pay high compensations to affected bodies.
“Top players in the market are strategizing for acquisitions and divestments for sustainable business growth,” says TMR’s lead analyst. Siemens AG, for example, acquired Rolls-Royce’s Energy compressor and aero-derivatives gas turbines business in 2014 to fill a technological gap in its own gas turbine portfolio.
Leveraging core strengths and focus on expansion of oil and gas sector is another popular growth strategy adopted by companies in this market. For instance, Honeywell International recently bagged a contract for the Trans-Anatolian Gas Pipeline because of its expertise in integrated control and safety systems.
