The global distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) market exhibited double-digit growth during 2014-2019. The distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) system refers to an adaptable fiber optic technology that consists of an optoelectronic instrument to measure acoustic interactions. The instruments detect vibrations and capture acoustic energy along the optical fiber. It is primarily used for monitoring the vibrations generated by hot-tapping pipelines, leaks, moving automobiles and failing mechanical components during industrial operations. This aids in detecting, classifying and accurately locating the site of vibrations or defects. In comparison to the traditionally used methods, DAS systems do not require discrete sensors and additional transducers, owing to which, they find extensive applications across various industries.

Significant growth in the transportation industry across the globe is one of the key factors creating a positive outlook for the market. DAS systems are widely used for analyzing the speed and density of traffic and predicting possible disruptions on the roads. Furthermore, they are also used for detecting physical changes in objects over long distances and are highly efficient in harsh environments. As a result, DAS systems are employed in the oil and gas industry for determining properties and characteristics of flow in different pipelines near the wellbores. Various technological advancements, such as the development of improved quantitative data analysis systems that offer higher processing speeds for data interpretation, are acting as other growth-inducing factors. The increasing utilization of DAS systems in the energy and power sector for efficient transmission and distribution, and in the military and defense sector for enhanced border surveillance are some of the other factors that are expected to drive the market further. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the global distributed acoustic sensing (DAS) market to exhibit strong growth during the period 2020-2025.
