Gravimeters Market By Output (Absolute and Relative), By Platform (Land-based, Marine-based and Airborne), By Application (Oil and Gas Exploration, Mineral Exploration, Geological Mapping, Civil Engineering and Others) - Growth, Future Prospects and Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

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.

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.
