“Increasing construction activities in emerging economies is one of the significant factors driving the land survey equipment market.”
The land survey equipment market is projected to reach USD 8.70 billion by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.67% from 2017 to 2022. The infrastructure industry focuses on accurate and error-free designs and engineering of projects such as railways, bridges, commercial and residential multi-storey buildings, and airports. This has led to an increased demand for land survey equipment for carrying out operations, such as distance measurement, dredging, scanning, and accurate mapping. However, land survey equipment manufacturers face challenges due to increased rental and leasing services of land survey equipment. This has a direct impact on their sales revenue, thus restraining the growth of the land survey equipment market.
“The layout points application segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the land survey equipment market in 2017.”
Based on application, the layout points segment is estimated to account for the largest share of the land survey equipment market in 2017. Land survey equipment manufacturers are focused on the use of IT for layout planning; for example, 4D simulations, artificial intelligence, virtual reality, and Building Information Modelling (BIM), which can optimize layout planning during various construction phases, thus contributing to the growth of the market.
“The construction industry segment of the land survey equipment market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.”
Based on industry, the construction segment of the land survey equipment market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. Land survey equipment are used in the construction industry for the measurement, mapping, and monitoring of construction sites. The development of smart cities and the growth of the global construction market are some of the factors driving the construction industry.
