Country-wise Insights

What is Driving the U.S. Leak Testing Market?

“Manufacturers in the U.S. are Preferring Gas Leak Testers”

The U.S. accounted for around 77.3% of the North America leak testing market in 2021. The market is estimated to create an absolute dollar opportunity worth US$ 642.9 Mn by the end of the forecast period.

Increasing consumption of oil & gas necessitates the expansion of the energy infrastructure and a re-evaluation of the U.S. in the global energy market.  Significant disposable income and increasing awareness regarding leak testing, particularly in the oil and gas, power plant, and chemical sectors, among engineers will boost sales of leak testing equipment and services in the country.

What is the China Leak Testing Market Outlook?

“Increasing Adoption of Coolant Leak Testers in China Will Augment Growth”

Sales in China are expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% and are forecast to account for more than 40.5% of the East Aisa leak testing market in 2022.

The China energy market is dominated by state-owned oil and gas companies. China is the world’s second-largest consumer of oil and gas, but only the sixth largest producer of the same. As a big oil consumer, China’s oil consumption is increasing year by year with fluctuating growth rates.

With the rapid growth of China’s oil and natural gas consumption, oil and gas companies will need to boost their output to meet energy needs and reduce the reliance on oil imports. Faced with declining domestic oil reserves, the need to improve efficiency and productivity is gaining traction. This is expected to fuel sales of leak testing equipment and services in China.

Competitive Landscape

The global leak testing market is gaining momentum with the presence of several large, medium, and small-scale system developers, manufacturers, and service providers. Prominent leak testing manufacturers are collaborating and partnering with other service providers to expand their regional presence.
