Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Market Size, Industry Analysis Report, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2020 - 2026
Report ID: GMI4180
Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Market size is expected to grow significantly over the forecast period due to growing awareness regarding safety and protection of underground utilities. Increase in the number of mining projects and favorable government initiatives for the implementation of utility mapping tools will accelerate market growth. The rising adoption of GPR drone integrated systems to view the structures of underground utilities more efficiently will further lead to ground penetrating radar market growth. Growing inclination toward real-time utility mapping applications that are based on GPR array solution, which uses several antennas to increase the accuracy of pipe and cable detection process will further create opportunities for the GPR market. An increase in the usage of GPR in 3D mapping applications such as mapping of both metallic & non-metallic buried utilities, water & gas pipelines, sewer lines & cables, and storage tanks will enhance the growth of the market.
The GPR is a geophysical technique used for reconfirming the presence of any buried underground utilities such as water & sewer pipes, electrical and optical cables. The technique helps in the detection of plastic, glass, concrete, wood, and shallow unexploded ordnance (UXO). It is also used in road scanning, bridge scanning, and profiling & structure scanning applications. ground penetrating radar technology helps utility mapping companies to reduce their project planning time and minimize risks by providing advanced real-time 3D maps. Mining companies are deploying underground utility solutions that comply with health & safety regulations and BSI standard PAS 128 Surveys. The adoption of the GPR technique is increasing in the archaeology sector as it is faster than conventional techniques, providing useful information about the conditions of conservation without intrusive intervention.
APAC is expected to show rapid growth in the ground penetrating radar (GPR) market over the forecast period due to the growing adoption of advanced technologies such as remote sensing and GPR for 3D underground utility mapping, increasing the efficiency of the mapping process. The government agencies in Malaysia are also making efforts to ensure that the GPR equipment is compliant with the accuracy standards. Thus, ground penetrating radar providers are following accuracy standards to develop new products to improve the quality of the detection process. For instance, the Department of Survey and Mapping Malaysia (JUPEM) has issued standard guidelines for the use and management of underground utility data. According to the agency, GPRs used for the detection of underground utilities are tested for their accuracy in a controlled environment. The increasing number of government projects in Singapore that use mapping technologies will further result in the ground penetrating radar market growth. For instance, the Urban Redevelopment Authority (URA) of Singapore has undertaken a Draft Master Plan 2019 (DMP 2019) focusing on Singapore’s physical development over the next 10 to 15 years for the development of sustainable, inclusive, green neighborhoods. The project is expected to deliver a 3D map of beneath utilities.
North America is expected to hold a significant share in the GPR market due to the favorable government regulations for subsurface investigation. For instance, the American Concrete Institute (ACI) relies on GPR technology for its non-destructive test methods for the evaluation of concrete structure in norm ACI 228. The American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) has issued a standard guide in ASTM 6432-99 for using the Surface GPR Method for subsurface investigation. This guide includes the equipment, field procedures, and interpretation methods for the assessment of subsurface materials using the impulse ground penetrating radar (GPR) method. The players operating in the region are focusing on new product developments to increase their product capabilities. For instance, in May 2018, Canada-based Sensors & Software Inc. introduced the latest version of pulseEKKO ultra receiver that is compatible with all low-frequency pulseEKKO PRO and pulseEKKO 100 transmitters, which will improve the data acquisition process.
The companies operating in the GPR market are involved in conducting partnerships and acquisitions to increase their global presence and enhance product quality and features. For instance, in May 2019, GSSI Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc. entered into a partnership with Blinken Tools to expand its presence in the Scandinavian (North Europe) region through the distribution channel of Blinken. This will enhance the service support in delivering quality products to the construction, industrial, and government sectors. Companies are focusing on new product development to enhance their product capabilities. For instance, in June 2019, Hexagon launched a new ground penetrating radar (GPR) solution Leica DSX for underground utility detection that simplifies data capture and automates data processing. DSX allows users to easily detect, map, and visualize underground utilities, increasing positioning accuracy. Some of the prominent players operating in the ground penetrating radar market are Chemring Group PLC, Geophysical Survey Systems, Inc., Geoscanners AB, GeoSearches Inc., Geotech, Guideline Geo, Hilti, HEXAGON, IDS GeoRadar, Leica Geosystems AG, MALA GPR, MultiView, Inc., National GPR Service, Inc., Penetradar Corp., Pipehawk PLC, Radiodetection Ltd., Sandberg LLP, Sensors & Software Inc., SSI Services, US Radar Inc. and Utsi Electronics Ltd.
