Leak Detection And Repair Market Size 2021 to 2030

Growth Factors

The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for leak detection and repair (LDAR) systems among utility companies worldwide due to their benefits, such as safety improvement, cost-saving, and environmental protection. LDAR systems also help oil and gas and petroleum companies make workplaces healthier by decreasing the risk of accidents caused due to explosions and fire outbreaks. Increasing developments in natural gas and petroleum infrastructure worldwide are also expected to drive market growth.

Growing government efforts to reduce methane emissions worldwide are anticipated to accentuate market growth. For instance, the Global Methane Pledge was announced on November 2021 at COP26 in Glasgow to commit to a joint goal of lowering global methane emissions by at least 30% by 2030 as compared to the 2020 levels. This initiative emphasizes reducing methane emissions by tackling methane leaking from oil and gas pipelines, wells, and other fossil fuel infrastructure.

By Component Analysis

On the basis of components, the global LDAR market has been bifurcated into services and equipment. The services segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for more than 65.0% share of the global revenue. Leaking equipment, such as pumps, valves, connectors, and compressors, are the leading sources of volatile organic compounds emissions in chemical manufacturing facilities and petroleum refineries.

The equipment segment is anticipated to register the fastest growth rate over the forecast period. The integration of enhanced technologies in LDAR equipment is expected to create a new opportunity for the growth of the segment. Equipment with multi-gas solutions, cloud connectivity, and other such features are being increasingly used by utility companies to monitor Greenhouse Gases (GHG), 

By Product Analysis

The handheld gas detectors segment dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for more than 38.0% share of the global revenue. Handheld gas detectors are increasingly in demand among oil and gas companies owing to their benefits, such as fast and reliable detection, compact and lightweight structures, and ease of use. 

On the basis of products, the global market has been divided into handheld gas detectors, UAV-based detectors, vehicle-based detectors, manned aircraft detectors. The UAV-based detectors segment is anticipated to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. The use of UAV-based detectors to navigate dangerous areas is one of the critical advantages of these aerial solutions, which drives the segment growth. 

By Technology Analysis

The Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) analyzer segment dominated the LADR market in 2021 and accounted for more than 30.0% share of the global revenue. Different gases, such as propane, N-butane, N-pentane, and N-octane, are considered under the VOC category.

The concentration of a VOC is high in an indoor environment compared to the outdoor environment. A VOC is mainly emitted from products inside a building, such as cleaning supplies, paints, glues, and printing equipment. Volatile organic compounds detectors are mainly used for the rapid and accurate detection of VOCs.

The Optical Gas Imaging (OGI) segment is expected to register the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Optical gas imaging is a thermal imaging technology that utilizes highly sensitive infrared cameras to detect small fugitive emissions from the oil and gas industries. 

By Regional Analysis

North America dominated the market in 2021 and accounted for a market share of 53.0%. The growth of the region can be attributed to the presence of stringent government regulations and norms. The pipeline leak detection regulation of the U.S requires the installation of a leak detection system on hazardous liquid pipelines. 

The Asia Pacific regional market is expected to witness significant growth over the forecast period. The increasing demand for oil and oil products across Asia Pacific countries is expected to drive the demand for LDAR among utility companies in the region.
