Market Analysis and Insights: Europe Leak Detection Market
Europe leak detection market is expected to gain market growth in the forecast period of 2021 to 2028. Data Bridge Market Research analyses that the market is growing with the CAGR of 7.4% in the forecast period of 2021 to 2028 and expected to reach USD 757.27 million by 2028. Increasing growth in oil and gas pipeline and storage plant infrastructure is the prominent factors that drive growth of the market.
The term leak or leakage means an unintended crack, hole or porosity in an enveloping wall or joint of the pipes, batteries, sealed products, chambers or storage containers which must contain/transfer different fluids and gases. These cracks or holes allow the escape of fluids and gases from closed medium. The leakages must be identified at earliest to decrease the loss and harm causing to the environment, for which various leak detection sensors and instruments are used. The main function of leak detection system is the localization and size measurement of leaks in sealed products.
High number of pipeline leakages incidents and increasing integration of advanced technology in leak detectors are augmenting the leak detection market. For instance, In January 2020, FLIR Systems Inc. has launched FLIR GF77a, its first uncooled, fixed-mount, connected thermal camera for detecting methane and other industrial gases. With this new launch of optical gas imaging (OGI) series product, company has extended their product portfolio and will increase their customer base.

Europe Leak Detection Market Scope and Market Size
Leak detection market is segmented on the basis of type, product type, technology and end user. The growth among segments helps you analyse niche pockets of growth and strategies to approach the market and determine your core application areas and the difference in your target markets.
- On the basis of type, the leak detection market is segmented into upstream, midstream and downstream. In 2021, the midstream segment accounted largest market share as midstream segment basically deals with the transportation of crude oil and natural gas through various modes of transportation such as pipeline. These pipelines are needed to be protected against leakages to avoid leak incidents and cause loss of life and property. Thus, the midstream is dominating the type segment.
- On the basis of product type, the leak detection market is segmented into handheld gas detectors, UAV-based detectors, manned aircraft detectors and vehicle-based detectors. In 2021, vehicle-based detectors accounted largest market share as it can be easily mounted on a vehicle and be used for monitoring the pipelines through the moving vehicle. This is the most economical and fast way of detecting leaking and is therefore dominating the product type segment.
- On the basis of technology, the leak detection market is segmented into acoustic / ultrasound, fiber optic, pressure-flow deviation methods, extended real-time transient model (E-RTTM), thermal imaging, mass/volume balance, vapor sensing, laser absorption and LIDAR, hydraulic leak detection, negative pressure waves and others. In 2021, acoustic / ultrasound accounted largest market share as it offers faster detection of leakage and is low cost solution, moreover, it provides early detection and the loss can be prevented at an early stage, these factors lead to highest growth of acoustic/ultrasound in technology segment.
- On the basis of end user, the leak detection market is segmented into oil and gas, chemical plant, water treatment plants, thermal power plant, mining and slurry and others. In 2021, oil and gas accounted largest market share as this industry is a major user of leak detection system in order to prevent leakage of crude oil and gas and methane emission. The leakage can lead to severe loss of life and property. Moreover, several government regulations to prevent leak incidents have increased the demand of leak detection in oil and gas industry.
