Growing concerns for the safety of underground utilities backed with positive government actions for the practice of utility mapping instruments drive the demand for underground utility mapping market
The underground utility mapping solution has come across significant development over the past few years and is likely to upsurge tremendously in the next five to seven years. These solutions are utilized for detecting and mapping covered pipes & links, for instance, telecoms and electric underneath the surface. Hence it is expected that the global underground utility mapping market size is projected to reach USD 2,135 million by 2028.
With advancements in the equipment such as the GNSS and GPR used for mapping, the formation of real-time 3-Dimensional maps of suppressed utilities has turned into an easy job, further decreasing cost, inefficiencies, and risks. Mining companies implement underground utility mapping tools, which are amenable with BSI standard PAS 128 surveys as well as health & safety regulations.
The global underground utility mapping market contains both solution and service segments. The solution segment is further classified into Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Electromagnetic Induction (EMI), and others. The GPR is likely to grow with a significant growth rate from 2020 to 2028. It is a surveying method used to detect and map sub-surface landscapes. This method is used for several applications, including locating and detecting utilities, voids, and buried structures, buried manhole chambers, covers, pavement thickness, trench routes, concrete structures, as well as rebar placement in the present structures.
The global underground utility mapping industry has strong rivalry among the new emerging and well-established players. This industry participants target to achieve a competitive benefit over the other market players by partaking in mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships and expanding their businesses.
The global underground utility mapping market is a wide range to North America, Europe, APAC, South America, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is considered the fastest growing market in the underground utility mapping applications due to the existence of various evolving economies with well-advanced utility ecosystems, including India, Japan, Australia, China, and Singapore with the availability of technical expertise and advanced IT infrastructure.
