Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Geophysical Services industry gathers, interprets and maps geophysical data. Industry performance is dependent on demand for resource exploration from downstream oil, natural gas and mining industries, which is, in turn, largely dependent on movements in commodity prices. Therefore, volatile commodity prices have been responsible for the industry's unstable growth, although revenue increases are expected to be sustained over the next five years... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

The Geophysical Services industry has a high level of capital intensity. For every $1.00 spent on labour in 2014, IBISWorld estimates that industry operators will allocate $0.33 toward the purchase of machinery and equipment. Industry services require significant investment in sophisticated and expensive machinery. In order to conduct 3D and 4D seismic surveys, operators require land surface surveying, flagging and global positioning system (GPS) equipment; energy source and receiver equipment trucks such as highland rigs, man-portable drills, airboats and shallow-draft water drill barges; receiving and recording equipment and vehicles; and, in some cases, helicopters. In addition, operators require a variety of data-processing and interpretation equipment... purchase to read more
