Ground Penetrating Radar Market Future Aspect Analysis and Current Trends by 2027

Posted by Tom C on February 28th, 2023

The ground penetrating radar market size is predicted to grow from USD 315 million in 2022 to USD 453 million by 2027, at a CAGR of 7.5%.

As the demand for GPR increases, the demand for GPR software is also rising. The data collected and analyzed by GPR equipment and software helps deliver valuable insights to users in 2D as well as 3D formats. However, 3D GPR data provides even greater context and clarity. The features of 3D data include generating multi-scan slice overlays, rotating and zooming the data slices for analysis, providing adjustable transparency, generating depth slices, and more. Hence, all these features will help drive the growth opportunity for GPR Software in the future.

As the military industry is evolving every day, so is the demand for detection and investigation equipment, such as GPRs, growing worldwide. The military mainly uses GPR systems to identify the location and detection of buried explosive devices. For instance, GPR is used in old sites to identify unexploded ordnance (UXO). Additionally, the common application of GPR systems in the military sector is identifying the location of embedded wires and cables in structures. The location of buried bunkers, tunnels, and caches are also areas of growing interest. In May 2020, the US Army ordered GPR systems to detect improvised explosive devices (IEDs) buried in roadways. They found their solution from Chemring Sensors and Electronics Systems (CSES) in Dulles, Virginia, and ordered to build Husky Mounted Detection System (HMDS) kits, spare parts, maintenance, and training for themselves.

GPR is considered the underground utility locator, with the ability to detect both metallic and non-metallic utilities. Underground utilities include water and wastewater transit pipes, gas pipes, water boxes, conduits, polythene, and even fiber-optic cables, which are difficult or impossible to detect by other methods. GPR also allows the detection of leakages in pipes and voids and provides the exact depth information of these damages. Moreover, GPR equipment help minimize or prevent potential damage to buried utilities, such as water, gas, electric utility lines, and communication lines, during the excavation and digging processes; any damage to these lines may result in delays, an increase in the repair or maintenance costs, and service disruption. Additionally, these equipment help detect the exact location and physical characteristics of underground utilities, which helps minimize the cost incurred by replacement parts and avoid inconvenience to the general public by enabling asset owners to provide continued services.
