The global wireline logging service market was valued at over USD 16 billion in 2014, according to a new study by Grand View Research, Inc. This can be attributed to the potential increase in recoverable resources and increased production & exploration. Increase in crude oil prices is estimated to result in rise in investments for exploration & production activities leading to significant new projects across the globe, which is expected to positively impact industry growth.
Technological advancements have broadened service offerings by oil & gas field service providers and improved industry efficiency. Several new technologies such as drill ships and Floating, Production, Storage, and Offloading (FPSO) vessels have enabled wells to be drilled in increasingly deep water. Additionally, the new reservoir conditions including high temperature, ultra-deep water, and high pressure require advanced logging tools and services. The aforementioned factors are projected to drive the industry demand over the next seven years.
Rise in the number of horizontal wells, demand for real-time logging, and well integrity concerns are estimated to offer significant opportunities for industry growth. However, increased seismic activities and stringent government regulations can hamper wireline logging service market.

Further key findings from the study suggest:
- E-line logging segment accounted for over 55% of the revenue in 2014 and is expected to witness substantial rise in demand over the forecast period. It finds more usage as compared to the slickline products owing to its wide application across several E&P activities. Some of the factors responsible for electric line’s increased adoption include its ability to transmit electric data by offering a pathway for communication between the downhole equipment and the surface.
- Cased-hole logging services segment is estimated to account for over 75% of the overall industry by 2022, growing at a CAGR of over 9% from 2015 to 2022. The industry has been developing sophisticated measurements in through-casing applications. Tools such as gamma ray, spectral gamma ray, pulse neutron, and compensated neutron are used for determining water saturation.
- North America dominated the market in 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 9% from 2015 to 2022. Potential increase in recoverable resources and completion activities within North America are expected to drive the demand across this region over the forecast period.
- Wireline logging service market share is occupied by companies such as Halliburton, Schlumberger, Weatherford International, Baker Hughes, Nabors Industries, and Pioneer Energy Services. Profit margins of the companies are influenced on the efficiency of their production processes. Hence, major players such as Halliburton and Schlumberger are investing heavily in R&D for improving existing technologies, maintaining their edge. For instance, in 2014, Schlumberger invested USD 1.2 billion in R&D activities, whereas Halliburton invested USD 0.6 billion, Baker Hughes 0.6 billion, and Weatherford International invested USD 0.3 billion, respectively.
