Impact of COVID-19 on the global geotechnical services market

COVID-19 is an infectious disease that originated in Hubei province of the Wuhan city in China in late December. The highly contagious disease, caused by a virus, severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), is transmitted from humans to humans. Since the outbreak in December 2019, the disease has spread to almost 213 countries around the globe with the World Health Organization declaring it a public health emergency on March 11, 2020. 

The outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic had led to partial or complete shutdown of production facilities, which do not come under essential goods, owing to prolonged lockdown in major countries such as the U.S., China, Japan, India, and Germany. It has led to either closure or suspension of their production activities in most of the industrial units across the world. Construction & infrastructure is one of the most affected sectors, owing to a lockdown announced in several countries.. Lockdown has affected several construction and infrastructure projects due to supply chain disruptions and the unavailability of workers. In March 2020, Boston became the first city in the U.S. to halt all construction activities to contain the spread of COVID-19, which negatively impacted the geotechnical services market growth.

Analyst Review

This section provides the insights of top-level CXOs. According to the CXOs, the geotechnical services market is moving toward growth stabilization phase in its industry life cycle. The factors driving the growth of the market for geotechnical services include rise in demand for construction of bridges & tunnels as well as buildings.

Geotechnical instrumentation is a type of instrument that is used in places that require monitoring. A geotechnical service is an indispensable factor in completing geotechnical projects. Simple project requires limited geotechnical instrumentation, whereas the demand for geotechnical instrumentation and monitoring is high in critical projects such as embankments, tunnels, and excavations. With increase in the construction of public services, including dams and bridges, the introduction of geotechnical and monitoring instruments is expected to increase during the forecast period.

North America constitutes the largest market for the industry and generated revenue of $617.8 million in 2020, as the region houses major geotechnical services companies, especially in the U.S. The CXOs further added that in the Americas, both government and private sectors are aggressively involved in large-scale infrastructure projects. For example, the Nevada Department of Transportation (NDOT) constructed a 4-lane concrete interstate freeway between Silverline Road and Foothill Drive in Henderson. The government spent $83 million in this project.
