The geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring market is estimated to be worth USD 3.2 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach USD 5.1 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 9.6%. Rising infrastructure investments, increasing adoption of geotechnical instruments to prevent structural failures, government regulations for sustainable structures and growing awareness about the benefits of instrumentation and monitoring tools are some of the major factors driving the growth of the geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring market. However, high installation and monitoring costs are likely to hinder market growth.
The market for geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring services to account for the largest share during the forecast period
The number of market players offering geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring services is more than the companies offering instruments and software. Various types of instruments needed for geotechnical monitoring include inclinometers, piezometers, extensometers, and sensors among others. The data collected from these instruments is provided to the software for analysis. These solutions help to identify structural damages at an early stage and enable a high degree of structural safety as the stakeholders can take preventive and corrective actions at the earliest to ensure structural safety. Though the hardware and software solutions can be reused after purchase, many companies that purchase these solutions rent them to other companies, which is considered as a service. The presence of many geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring service providers to drive the market growth.
The market for wireless networking technology is estimated to register the highest CAGR between 2021 and 2026 in geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring market
Advancements in technology have led to the development of wireless instruments to which conventional instruments such as strain gauges, piezometers, inclinometers, linear voltage displacement transducers, and accelerometers can be attached for centralized data collection and analysis. The growing demand for wireless networking technologies for geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring is a major factor contributing to the high market growth. However, wired networking technology is expected to hold the largest share of the market owing to the higher adoption of wired instruments for geotechnical monitoring.
Geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring market in the Asia Pacific region is expected to witness a robust growth during 2021-2026
