Underground Utility Mapping Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Component (Solutions (Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR), Electromagnetic Induction (EMI), Others ), Services (Professional Services, Managed Services)), By End-use Industry (Oil & Gas, Electricity, Public Safety, Construction, Telecommunication, Others) And Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region : Global | Report ID: FBI105689 | Status : Ongoing



Underground utility mapping is a study carried out in the planning phase of any construction work in order to study the underground structure, which helps in minimizing risks during excavation and surprises during construction work. This study is important in urban areas that are undergoing transition and witnessing construction activities across residential, commercial, and industrial sectors and pipeline works at a very faster rate. The survey involves the digital representation of the underlying structures using equipment such as ground-penetrating radar and electro-magnetic locators.

Based on components, the market is segmented into solutions and services. The solutions are further bifurcated into ground penetrating radar (GPR), electromagnetic induction, and others. Over the years, the GPR technology has been the most preferred owing to its preciseness in detail and ability to locate all metallic and non-metallic structures situated underground. The technique is used for locating & identifying utilities, concrete structures, buried structures & voids, chambers, trench routes, pavement thickness, buried manhole covers, and rebar placement in existing structures. The service segment is further bifurcated into professional and managed services of which professional services occupy a lion's share as these are a very basic requirement to ensure exact locations and ensure the feasibility of planned operations.

Based on the end-use industry, the market is segmented into oil & gas, public safety, construction, electricity, communication, and others. As these services are required for almost every end-use sector in today's world the demand for these surveys has grown immensely across every industry. Construction and telecommunication industries being fueled by the factors such as rising population, increased urbanization, better connectivity, the introduction of 5G networks are expected to lead the market in coming years.

The major market driver for the underground utility mapping market is the need to ensure the safety of the already present underlying structures during the construction or the establishment of new networks. Along, with this the initiatives by the government to ensure the safety of the public boost the demand for these surveys. New construction activities such as metros and underground electrification in developing nations pose healthy growth opportunities for the market. 

The factor that is expected to inhibit the growth of the market is the requirement of skilled labor as the equipment being used needs to be handled with the utmost care and the user must be having enough knowledge to ensure preciseness in operations. Also, the high maintenance costs of the equipment may hinder the market growth.

Key Market Driver -

Increasing concerns over underlying structures and government initiatives to ensure public safety.

Key Market Restraint -

Requirement of skilled labor and higher maintenance cost.
