Utility Locator Market by Component (Equipment, Software, Services), by Detection (Metallic, Non-Metallic), by Application (Communication cable, Gas Pipe), by Region (North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, Middle East and Africa, and South America) – Global Forecast (2019 to 2027)

UTILITY LOCATOR MARKET: Summary

The Global Utility Locator Market is estimated to reach USD 9.1 Billion by 2027 at a CAGR of 5.7%.

Utility location is a process of finding, locating, and marking various public utilities that are underground. The utilities consist of communication cables, gas pipes, electrical power cables, water, and wastewater lines, and telephone lines among others. Utility locators are mainly used for reducing utility conflicts, reduces overall project cost & time, and reduction of service drops. Many public and private companies provide equipment with different frequency ranges, software, and services to solve the public utility problems which are placed underground. 3M, Emerson Electric Co., Sensors & Software Inc., and Leica Geosystems AG are some of the major players in the utility locator market.

UTILITY LOCATOR MARKET: Drivers & CHALLENGES

Market Drivers:

  • Increasing Demand for Utility Locating and Marking

Utility locating and marking is a method that is used for identifying and labeling underground public utility cables and mains to protect them from damage during excavation. The increasing need for project safety to minimize the project and maintenance cost which is expected to drive the utility locator market during the forecast period. Many underground utility lines such as telephone lines and power cables with high voltage. Digging is a prime activity at any construction site, there might be the chances of presences of underground utilities, which may cause on-site injuries to the workers. To avoid such accidents utility locators are used. Thus, increasing demand for utility locator and marking which may boost the market during the forecast period.  

Market Challenges:

  • Detection of Poor Insulated Utilities

Poorly insulated utilities are difficult to detect due to long travels utility lines it may decrease the strength of their induced signals. This occurs when a metal surface comes into direct contact with the soil, the signal is passed through soil, not from the cable. Hence the degree of the signal is the loss which is directly proportional to the surface area of metal in contact with the soil. Hence detection of poorly insulated utilities is expected to become a challenge for the utility locator market.
