The ground penetrating radar market is being driven by the growing demand for ground penetrating radar services across industry verticals, such as the construction and mining industry. In the oil and gas industry, the ground penetrating radar systems helps in the precise monitoring of the underground oil wells, which helps save time and mining costs. The increased demand for GPR services, particularly on a rental basis, can be related to the rising cost of GPR equipment. The availability of new GPR equipment with enhanced features is driving up demand, which is projected to boost market growth in the future years. The increased demand for detection, such as utility detection, is expected to boost market expansion. In addition, growing demand for ground penetrating radar systems in the construction industry to ascertain the base soil is also predicted to aid the market.
Industry Definition and Major Segments
Ground penetrating radar is a device that helps in the monitoring and surveying of a surface, subsurface or geospatial surfaces to investigate its properties. This instrument utilises electromagnetic radiations to detect the contrasts under the surface. In addition, it is a non-intrusive process that requires no destruction of the surface.
The ground penetrating radar market, on the basis of offering, can be segmented into:
Based on product type, the industry can be segregated into:
- Handheld Systems
- Cart-Based Systems
- Vehicle-Mounted Systems
On the basis of application, the market can be distributed into:
- Utility Detection
- Concrete Investigation
- Forensics and Archaeology
- Transportation Infrastructure
- Geotechnical and Environment
The regional markets for ground penetrating radar include:
- North America
- Asia Pacific
- Latin America
- Middle East and Africa
The global ground penetrating radar industry is being driven by the increased demand for radar sensing in the forensics and archaeology sector across the globe. This can be attributed to the non-intrusive benefits offered by the radar systems, which enable accurate location of an artefact, while also requiring the potential for careful excavation without disturbing the rest of the surface. The rising population density and the heightened demand for commercial and industrial infrastructure development is further propelling the market growth. In addition, the factors such as enhanced imaging, precise detection through varied surfaces, and ability to detect metals, nonmetals, and other irregularities in the surface, among others are predicted to augment the market growth. These factors are anticipated to provide aid the market growth in the coming years.
