Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) Market Report Overview

Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) Market size is analyzed to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period 2022-2027 to reach $958 million by 2027. The Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) technique is used to measure temperature in a variety of fiber optic applications that employ optical fibers. DTS has a number of advantages, including its small size, resilience to ionizing radiation, and immunity to electromagnetic interference. These benefits have increased their use for detecting and measuring temperature in a variety of industries, including oil and gas, power and utility, and others. DTS technology usually uses a regular telecoms fiber optic connection, with specialized cables or sensing points necessary only when temperatures above 100°C. Multi-mode fibers are commonly used for shorter ranges (up to 40km) and single-mode fibers for longer ranges (40-100km). Because optical fiber cables are not impacted by electromagnetic interference, DTS systems are utilized for temperature monitoring and detecting hot spots along with power cables. DTS technology is also rapidly being employed in scientific research and ecological monitoring. These are some of the fastest emerging sectors for the application of this technology. By Scattering method, DTS Technology has Rayleigh scattering, Raman scattering, and Brillouin Scattering. Because distributed temperature sensing is a new technology, its use in water-based applications has increased in recent years. A variety of geophysical approaches and Sagnac interferometer are being developed for monitoring hydrologic activities at large scales and within the catchment. Some geophysical technologies are in high demand to quantify the fluxes between surface water and groundwater. All of these factors are expected to contribute to the increasing usage of DTS.

Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) Market Segment Analysis – By Fiber Type

By Fiber Type, the Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) Market has been segmented into Single-mode fiber, Multi-mode fiber. In 2021, Multi-mode fiber accounted for the largest segment in the Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) market. The light-carrying core of multimode fibers is relatively large. These are commonly utilized in DTS applications and are available in core diameters of 50m and 62.5m. Light rays are allowed to travel in multiple directions within the fiber. The bigger core diameter aids in the propagation of more optical power through the fiber. Because there are several modes present, the signal disperses, and so there is more power loss than with single-mode fiber, limiting the signal carrying capacity in terms of distance traveled. The core of the multi-mode fiber is big in diameter, providing numerous paths for light to flow through the fiber. It has a high nonlinearity threshold and can launch more power via the fiber. Because it has a higher temperature resolution, this fiber type is commonly employed for long-distance transmission. In March 2020, The OPTHERMOTM FTS3500 fiber-optic distributed temperature sensor system was introduced by Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd. The FTS3500 inherits the FTR3000's compact housing size and interface compatibility while enhancing the sampling interval performance.

The key role of Distributed Temperature Sensing DTS systems in hydrogeological research and increase in rules and regulations pertaining to safety standards is projected to drive market growth:

Distributed Temperature Sensing technologies are crucial in monitoring downhole temperature for hydrogeological studies at an unprecedentedly high frequency. The Distributed Temperature Sensing has been widely used in the assessment of subsurface thermal properties, site investigations of groundwater flow, and well flow. Furthermore, Distributed Temperature Sensing systems are widely utilized for heat pulse tests, thermal advection studies, and hybrid cable flow logging. The use of Distributed Temperature Sensing provides a significant advantage over discrete point temperature measurements, particularly in deep wells, as well as the potential for method development in conjunction with other hydrogeophysical research. These characteristics may result in massive investment opportunities in the worldwide market in the coming years. Government laws that promote safety, as well as an increase in industrialisation and building activity, are driving the rapid installation of Distributed Temperature Sensing systems, particularly in technologically advanced countries such as China, India, and Brazil. The DTS system delivers temperature information along the length of the cable, improving the safety of the equipment and surroundings. Various countries are heavily involved in developing strong and mandatory OSH standards and laws to assure operational safety. For example, the EU issued a directive on offshore oil and gas operations safety in June 2014, which covers the entire life cycle of all exploration and production activities, from design to final removal of an oil or gas infrastructure. As a result, rising safety standards and favourable government policies around the world have boosted the expansion of the Distributed Temperature Sensing market.

Challenges – Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) Market

The higher starting costs associated with Distributed Temperature Sensing technologies are limiting the growth of the market:

The expense of distributed sensing technology is one of its most severe drawbacks. If there is no requirement to detect the temperature at multiple locations, traditional thermocouples will be deployed at a fraction of the cost of a FO system. The higher starting costs associated with Distributed Temperature Sensing technologies are predicted to slow global market growth during the forecast period. Furthermore, complexity in fault detection and troubleshooting processes are expected to reduce demand for Distributed Temperature Sensing systems, which may finally impede global market growth during the analyzed period. The cost of a distributed system can be very high, depending on the applications, the type of cable used, and the operating conditions, and it is still out of reach for every firm that requires real-time monitoring and sensing. DTS installation costs might account for up to 20% of the total well cost. Furthermore, the DTS boxes and data analysis service come at an additional expense. For example, Distributed temperature sensor costs around 90 lakhs. Furthermore, the cost of installation and maintenance of these systems makes their deployment problematic. As a result, the high cost of distributed temperature sensing poses a significant barrier to market growth.
