Geophysical Services Market - Overview

The global geophysical services market is highly consolidated. Large numbers of geophysical survey-based data acquisition companies operate in the global market. Players that dominate the market account for significant market share. This leads to intense competition. Design, technology, and engineering of systems are key differentiating factors for different players. Scale of operations, range of data network, and capability to analyze and offer feasible solutions determine profitability and market share of market players. Besides oil & gas and mining, other end-user industries such as water exploration, agriculture, and environment are key consumers of geophysical services. Land-based geophysical services play a vital role in the exploration of various minerals, hydrocarbon sources, oil and gas reserves, etc. These services also help understand geophysical conditions of the ground surface and sub-surface. Aerial-based survey captures images by using fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. However, drones are expected to replace fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters in aerial-based geophysical surveys in the near future.
