Underground service locator can be termed as an equipment or a system which is used to identify the underground location of utilities and to inspect the consition of these utilities. The underground service locator help to access the precise and accurate location of the underground asset which can help the operator to protect these assests from damage due to the ongoing underground development work. Increased emphasis on the safety precuations and increased range of accuracy and precision is encouraging many customers to procure underground service locator.                                                      

The incorporation of the bluetooth device with underground service location equipment is anticipated to increase the interoperability of these devices complementing with the advanced devices and communication technology of the connected world. Additionally, development of products which can identify the training needs and regulate measurements according to the site of application. These technological advancments can increase the prevailant use of these equipments in locating and protecting buried infrastructure. Furthermore, using underground service locator system the customer can have accurate depth estimates and can confirm and calaculate exact locations in highly congested underground areas. With increasing clustures of underground utilities in both public and private properties over the coming years use of underground service locator is expected to have a substantial surge acorss various regions in the market.                                 

However, the massive outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic is anticipated to curb the underground service locator market across the globe. Disruption and complete breakdown of supply chain in diverse regions due to the COVID-19 restrictions and brief duration of national lockdown across various markets is expected to obstruct the growth of the market. Additionally, abrupt closure of the manufacturing facilities and restrictions to operate with minimal workforce even after the resumption of these facilities have also created volatality in the manufacturing, supply and availaibility of underground service locator equipment in the market which has an adverse impact on the global market. Reduction in operations across almost end use verticals is also plummeting the demand of these products in multiple regional markets.

To reduce the neagtive impact on the market and to have seamless operations from manufacturing to sales of these products many companies are trying to ramp up installtion of automation techniques at their manufacturing facilities to reduce the requirement of workforce and also to pace up the rate of manufacturing in their facilties. Also, the market participants are keen towards re-establishment of the supply chain across various regions to increase the market penetration and have a substantial direct customer reach to improve sales of their underground service locator equipment in the market.
