Published: Dec 2017 | Report Code: 58869-12-17

Gravimeter is a type of accelerometer that measures the gravitational force by constantly measuring downward acceleration of the Earth’s gravity. Gravimeters are primarily used in exploration phases prospecting for subsurface deposits of natural resources such as mineral ores and petroleum reserves. In addition, these instruments are used by geodesists to study gravitational field and shape of the Earth. Gravimeters are commonly used across a wide range of applications including metrology, geodesy, seismology, petroleum and mineral exploration, geophysical surveys and several others. 

The most prominent factor driving the gravimeters market is the superior benefits of gravity measurement as compared to other exploration methods. Gravity measurement is relatively less costly and reliable as compared to other methods such as seismic exploration. Gravimeters are highly effective in applications having lower depths. In addition, gravity measurement is easy to perform and is a non-destructive process. Further, anticipated growth in the oil & gas sector too is projected to emerge as a driving factor for gravimeter market. However, declining exploration budgets from the mining industry may hamper the market growth from the segment.

Evolution of gravimeters too has played a crucial role in the market growth. For instance, absolute gravity measurement is difficult method as it requires accurate measurement of time and distance. Over the period of time, use of lasers and atomic clocks have facilitated precise measurement of time and distance. This makes absolute gravity measurement more accurate and reliable. Another prominent factor driving the gravimeters market growth is the steady pace of advancement in the industry. Apart from land-based applications, gravimeters are now used on airplanes as well as ships. This significantly broadens and simplifies the application area of gravimeters, thereby supporting the market growth.

The global gravimeters market is segmented, based on output, into following categories:

  • Absolute
  • Relative

Gravimeters Market

 

In 2016, the overall gravimeters market worldwide was led by the relative gravimeters segment. The segment held almost three fourth of the overall market share in terms of value in 2016. Relative gravimeters are comparatively fast in operation and provide fairly accurate results. Due to ease of operation, these gravimeters have witnessed immense penetration in wide range of applications. The absolute gravimeters segment has witnessed new product development in the recent years with researchers working on developing small and extremely cheap gravimeters. The introduction of such tiny gravimeters could open up new avenues of applications which could not be achieved in the current state of the product.

The global gravimeters market is segmented, based on platform, into following categories:

  • Land-based
  • Marine-based
  • Airborne

Gravimeters Market

In 2016, the gravimeters market worldwide was led by land-based gravimeters segment, accounting for over half of the overall market value. Due to wider range of applications of land-based gravimeters as compared to other platforms, the segment is projected to remain dominant in the market during the forecast period. Land-based segment was followed by marine-based gravimeters segment in 2016. In the following years, airborne gravimeters segment is projected to register the highest growth in the market. This is primarily due to increasing adoption of these platforms for geophysical studies.

The global gravimeters market has been segmented, on the basis of geographical regions, as per following regions and countries:

  • North America
    • U.S.
    • Rest of North America
  • Europe
    • UK
    • Germany
    • Russia
    • Rest of Europe
  • Asia Pacific
    • China
    • Japan
    • India
    • Rest of Asia Pacific
  • Rest of the World
    • Middle East and Africa (MEA)
    • Latin America

 

Gravimeters Market

In 2016, North America dominated the gravimeters market on account of its huge oil & gas and research sectors. The market here is primarily governed by the U.S. contributing to nearly 88% of the overall regional market value. Europe held the second largest share, after North America, in the overall gravimeters market across the globe. In the following years, Asia Pacific is set to register the highest growth in the market. This is primarily attributed to relatively steady oil & gas and mining sector here.
