Global Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2024-2036

Wireline Logging Services Market size is expected to reach USD 26 Billion by the end of 2036, growing at a CAGR of 7% during the forecast period, i.e., 2024-2036. In the year 2023, the industry size of wireline logging services was around USD 6 Billion. Increasing exploration of oil and gas fields will primarily drive the market and will take the market to the expected CAGR. The world’s verified oil reserves total 1,757 billion bbl, emerging from 1,735 billion bbl a year prior, as stated in the Oil & Gas Journal’s yearly analysis. International proven natural gas reserves are now calculated at 7,456 tcf, emerging from 7,297 tcf surveyed last year. The released reserve figures depend on survey answers and official updates submitted by each country, which are not given yearly in many cases.

Another factor that will drive the wireline logging services market by the end of 2036 is the rising application of petrochemical products across the globe. In 2020, petrochemicals accounted for more than 16 percent of the oil requirement in the OECD. In 2021, the market worth of petrochemicals touched 556 billion U.S. dollars. The production potential of petrochemicals across the globe touched around 2.3 billion metric tons in 2021. By 2030, it is projected to increase substantially, with China, India, and Iran the countries with the biggest petrochemical potential additions released or planned. China alone makes strategies to add a potential of 134 million metric tons yearly, controlling the market in the medium term. The petrochemical industry shifts raw materials from oil refining and gas processing into an extensive range of materials. These comprise plastics, synthetic fibers, fertilizers, pastes, dyes, detergents, and synthetic paints and coatings.

Wireline Logging Services Market: Growth Drivers and Challenges


Growth Drivers

  • The Technological Improvements in The Field of Well-Logging - Current modifications in logging and formation assessment comprise a new through-casing impedance tool; HPHT equipment; while-drilling guiding extension and electrode impedance, wireline and while-drilling resistivity logging; establishment testing; production logging; LWD acoustic, nuclear, and seismic-while-drilling; and a movable NMR probe. Receiving the highest recovery reason is perhaps an unexpressed success metric for any oil organization. It not only modifies the financial value of the organization but also shows its technical mastery. Yet the industry is poised around a dismal median of 30% recovery factor. Multiple offering technologies have a large impact on recovery factors comprising 3D/4D seismic, horizontal drilling, geo-steering, hydraulic fracturing, intelligent fulfillment, digital centering, machine learning, and digitalization.
  • Increasing Industrialization and Urbanization - Industrialization transformed how companies throughout the country function and how professionals in many industries work. It still has a lasting influence on how organizations generate goods today and has benefits and challenges. Learning about this transformation can help determine if an industrial occupation appeals to your abilities, preferences, and objectives. Most industries buy electricity from electric utilities or personal power producers. Additionally, some industrial facilities also produce electricity for their use implementing fuels that they buy and/or the remnants from their industrial techniques. For instance, many paper mills have united heat and power plants that may burn purchased natural gas or coal and black liquor generated in their mills to technique heat and produce electricity.
  • Increased Exploration and Production Activity Across the World - Seismic data is accumulated through a special wing called “Geophysical services” in the form of 2D/3D surveys completed by ONGC’s survey party/vessels/tools (in-house) along with through agreement hiring by survey contracts. A similar technique is fitting for bore-hole seismic/wire-line logging through a different arm called “Logging services”. The entire Logging database is caught in the EPINET platform which is attainable around the company for timely and efficient decision making. A devoted R&D institute for Logging services and accommodates field-particular formation assessment and Reservoir Characterization issues of assets and basins.


  • The Issue with The Unconventional Oil and Gas Logging Process- At present, the growth of unconventional oil and gas logging process is mostly focused on assessment techniques of tight oil and medium to shallow shale gas, comprising a "seven properties" assessment (lithology, physical properties, electrical properties, oil and gas taking property, frangibility, hydrocarbon production characteristics, and stress anisotropy) and “three qualities” assessment (source rock quality, reservoir quality, and engineering quality), etc. The recent national reserve stipulations need that the associative error of estimated porosity should not be greater than 8%. This precision need is curated for traditional oil and gas reservoirs. Definitely, for unconventional oil and gas reservoirs with a primary porosity range of 3% to 10%, it is not simple to match this need, restricted by factors like the precision of fundamental logging information and core experiment assessment technology, and this issue requires to be solved with high-accuracy logging technology and unconventional reservoir experiment assessment technology.

Wireline Logging Services Segmentation

Wireline Type (E-line, Slickline)

The E-line segment is expected to hold 57% share of the global wireline logging services market by 2036. Being the most mature logging process, the E-line segment is projected to pursue its share presently, as the exploration for new oil and gas fields is still on in many countries for more production. The international oil production was documented as 88,391 thousand barrels daily. International oil production is estimated to be 93.9 million barrels per day in 2022. The technique will prove to be the most affordable manner to generate oil and gas from the reserves, specifically at this time when the organizations have to spend attentively in the upstream sector. Other than events surrounding the international economic crisis in the late 2000s and 2020, oil production continuously accelerated yearly for the past two decades. In the same way, international oil consumption only reduced in 2008, 2009, and 2020, but has otherwise accelerated to a higher level year after year. Oil and oil products stay valuable commodities as most conveyance fuels are petroleum-depended and oil is a major raw component for the chemicals industry. Japan will remain dedicated to its public support for oil and gas upstream growths although more selectively, following the newest dedication made by the G7 energy ministers, an executive at the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry told S&P Global Commodity Insights on May 30, 2023.

Hole Type (Open Hole, Cased Hole)

The cased hole type will dominate the wireline logging services market by the end of 2036 and will hold around 79% revenue share. This growth will be noticed due to its association with recognizing and tackling production problems, like water or gas breakthroughs, and maximizing reservoir execution. In December 2020, Saudi Arabia's national oil organization Saudi Aramco made four oil and gas explorations in the Al-Reesh oilfield, northwest of the city of Dhahran. The freshly established reserves were calculated to have non-traditional oil of 11,956 bpd potential and 4.8 million standard cubic feet of natural gas. The growth strategy for the oil reserve is projected to be prepared within a year.

APAC Market

The APAC region will encounter a significant surge during the forecast period and grab the position of second largest in the wireline logging services market owing to the increasing production of petrochemical products. China has long been the world's largest polymer and synthetic fiber importer, attribution to the similar of almost 3 mb/d in feedstock terms, or 3% of international oil consumption, in 2019 and 2020. Now, its earlier suppliers are under burden after current surges in Chinese production, specifically during 2023. Petrochemical activity and associated oil demand fell in other regions, comprising the Middle East and the rest of Asia. Shipments of intermediate and final petrochemical products were reduced by almost 30% from these parts of the globe at the time of the first nine months of 2023 in comparison with the same period in 2019.
