Seismic Support Vessels Market Reach $11.34 Billion By 2032 CAGR 5.1%

Seismic Support Vessels Market Size Worth $11.34 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 5.1%

The global seismic support vessels market size is expected to reach USD 11.34 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Seismic Support Vessels Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Dimension (medium, large, very large); By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Seismic vessels are created to conduct seismic surveys in the ocean. These distinctive ships assist in identifying the ideal oil drilling location and reducing marine life disturbance. In determining the suitable location for drilling, they fire seismic waves and measure the return. These vessels can examine the ocean's geology, including trenches, rocks, and other submerged features, by employing delicate equipment. Companies are working on increasing their expenditure on seismic support vessels to cater to global energy requirements, as they enable them to identify acceptable places for oil exploration.

According to the major oilfield services firm, SLB, global expenditure on offshore oil and gas exploration is expected to witness more than 20% growth in 2023 and is likely to retain its position over the coming years. This demonstrates the ongoing concerns among the industrials to capture a larger consumer base by increasing their oil productivity, necessitating the adoption of the latest technology with a view to establishing offshore projects without disturbance to the marine ecosystem. Seismic support vessels are gaining traction from oil and gas companies, driven by their ability to improve the amount of oil and gas extraction with a view to stimulating their profitability.
