Oil and gas are finite natural resources that require large investments in order to be extracted successfully. Furthermore, oil and gas leaks can cause significant property damage and, in some cases, death, in addition to having a long-term negative impact on the environment. As a result, it is critical for stakeholders in the oil and gas business to have effective detection procedures. The reliance on these pipelines to supply regularly is growing as the demand for oil and gas rises.

Oil & Gas Pipeline Leak Detection Market Revenue 2030

Because of the consequences of oil and gas pipeline leaks, governments in major nations have enacted rules and legislation requiring the maintenance and deployment of leak detection systems. The Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration (PHMSA) has adopted a rule to enhance hazardous liquid pipeline restrictions. It established additional compliance criteria for system operators and owners with the goal of maintaining pipe integrity and preventing leaks.



  • Upstream, middle, and downstream oil and gas leaks are all common.

  • Around the world, current channels are being expanded and renovated, while new channels are being built.

  • Government laws require the installation of a leak detection system.


  • Fiber optic solutions are limiting the expansion of the oil and gas leak detection business.

  • Sensor and interrogator system installation expenses are rising.


  • In recent years, many oil and gas deposits have been discovered across the world.

  • At the site, a sophisticated processing facility for natural gas treatment has been built.


  • The majority of leak detection methods available are not totally adequate for cold settings.

  • They should be inexpensive regardless of flow conditions, and they should be simple to manufacture and install.


The global lockdowns enacted to combat the spread of COVID-19 have had a detrimental influence on the Oil & Gas Pipeline Leak Detection business in recent months. On government directives, manufacturing factories were also temporarily shut down, which has impacted product demand since 2019. However, the negative impact was caused by a lack of personnel availability and is expected to subside in the next months, while product demand is expected to rise in the long run.


Pipelines transmit various types of oil and condensates, as well as natural gas, across great distances, necessitating the most precise leakage monitoring and detection techniques. Modern leak detection systems used in oil and natural gas production facilities and transmission pipelines contain E-RTTM as one of the most extensively utilized technologies. This device is devoid of false alarms and delivers reliable information on leaks. As a result, the market's E-RTTM category is expected to develop at the fastest rate over the forecast period. The E-RTTM technology can detect minor leaks (less than 1% of the flow), precisely identify leak sizes, and simulate all dynamic fluid features (flow, pressure, and temperature). Furthermore, the time it takes to discover leaks is longer.

During the forecast period, the natural gas sector of the oil & gas leak detection market is expected to develop at a faster rate than the oil and condensate segment. One of the main reasons for the increased demand for leak detection methods and systems from natural gas production plants is the growing number of government restrictions aimed at reducing carbon dioxide emissions. In natural gas production facilities, software-based dynamic modeling monitors, such as E-RTTM, are employed for leak detection. The ability to monitor continually without interfering with pipeline operations is one of the primary benefits of E-RTTM-based systems. Furthermore, the rising use of natural gas throughout the world has led to the construction of additional pipeline infrastructure.

An accurate research report requires proper strategizing as well as implementation. There are multiple factors involved in the completion of a good and accurate research report and selecting the best methodology to complete the research is the toughest part. Since the research reports, we provide play a crucial role in any company’s decision-making process, therefore we at SNS Insider always believe that we should choose the best method which gives us results closer to reality. This allows us to reach a stage wherein we can provide our clients best and most accurate investment to output ratio.

Each report that we prepare takes a timeframe of 350-400 business hours for production. Starting from the selection of titles through a couple of in-depth brainstorming sessions to the final QC process before uploading our titles on our website we dedicate around 350 working hours. The titles are selected based on their current market cap and the foreseen CAGR and growth.


The 5 steps process:

Step 1: Secondary Research:

Secondary Research or Desk Research as the name suggests is a research process wherein, we collect data through readily available information. In this process, we use various paid and unpaid databases to which our team has access and gather data through the same. This includes examining listed companies’ annual reports, Journals, SEC filling, etc. Apart from this, our team has access to various associations across the globe across different industries. Lastly, we have exchange relationships with various universities as well as individual libraries.

Secondary Research

Step 2: Primary Research

When we talk about primary research, it is a type of study in which the researchers collect relevant data samples directly, rather than relying on previously collected data.  This type of research is focused on gaining content-specific facts that can be sued to solve specific problems. Since the collected data is fresh and first-hand therefore it makes the study more accurate and genuine.

We at SNS Insider have divided Primary Research into 2 parts.

Part 1 wherein we interview the KOLs of major players as well as the upcoming ones across various geographic regions. This allows us to have their view over the market scenario and acts as an important tool to come closer to accurate market numbers. As many as 45 paid and unpaid primary interviews are taken from both the demand and supply sides of the industry to make sure we land an accurate judgment and analysis of the market.

This step involves the triangulation of data wherein our team analyses the interview transcripts, online survey responses, and observation of on-field participants. The below-mentioned chart should give a better understanding of part 1 of the primary interview.

Part 2: In this part of the primary research the data collected via secondary research and part 1 of the primary research is validated with the interviews with individual consultants and subject matter experts.

Consultants are those set of people who have at least 12 years of experience and expertise within the industry whereas Subject Matter Experts are those with at least 15 years of experience behind their back within the same space. The data with the help of two main processes i.e., FGDs (Focused Group Discussions) and IDs (Individual Discussions). This gives us a 3rd party nonbiased primary view of the market scenario making it a more dependable one while collation of the data pointers.

Step 3: Data Bank Validation

Once all the information is collected via primary and secondary sources, we run that information for data validation. At our intelligence center, our research heads track a lot of information related to the market which includes the quarterly reports, the daily stock prices, and other relevant information. Our data bank server gets updated every fortnight and that is how the information which we collected using our primary and secondary information is revalidated in real-time.

Step 4: QA/QC Process

After all the data collection and validation our team does a final level of quality check and quality assurance to get rid of any unwanted or undesired mistakes. This might include but is not limited to getting rid of the many typos, duplication of numbers, or missing any important information. The people involved in this process include technical content writers, research heads, and graphics people. Once this process is completed the title gets uploaded on our platform for our clients to read it.

Step 5: Final QC/QA Process:

This is the last process and comes when the client has ordered the study. In this process a final QA/QC is done before the study is emailed to the client. Since we believe in giving our clients a good experience of our research studies, therefore, to make sure that we do not lack at our end in any way humanly possible we do a final round of quality check and then dispatch the study to the client.
