Deflectometer Market: Overview

Deflectometers are used for operations such as the evaluation of the physical properties of pavements. Since the past few years, rapid urbanisation, industrialisation and economic growth rates are significantly boosting construction and building activities. These developments are creating the need for constant upgradations in infrastructure and properties, which has resulted in an increase in the number of construction activities for infrastructure and roadways. This trend has resulted in an increase in the need for using testing equipment and devices such as deflectometers.

The manufacturers of deflectometers are witnessing an increase in the demand for deflectometers since the past few years due to the unique and necessary applications of deflectometers in construction areas. The manufacturers of deflectometers are offering their products in different types, such as benchtop, heavy duty and others, for providing industry-specific deflectometers. Moreover, deflectometers are available as per their varying application areas, which is resulting in the increasing popularity of deflectometers for the improvement of the quality of pavements and construction projects. For example, the LWD Lightweight Deflectometer is used for the determination of the overall compaction quality of different types of earthworks. LED devices are preferred for their fast, simple and repeatable tests as these tests can provide more reliable results for end users.
