Market Dynamics

The land survey equipment market is mainly driven by urbanization and industrialization in developing countries. Major cities in developing countries, such as India, China, Brazil, Argentina, and South Africa, are rapidly expanding and building several new infrastructures in different parts of their respective countries. Several smart cities are being planned where land survey equipment is projected to play a very integral part in surveying at the initial planning stage.

For instance, governments in several developing nations, such as India, have planned new cities such as Dream City in Gujarat and New Kanpur, which would need surveying and inspection activities before planning and actual construction process. Therefore, these factors will drive the land survey equipment market growth during the forecast period. In addition, the use of drones for capturing images and videos has increased over the years. The operation of drones without human interference has made it popular to control them through computers or smartphones.

It is also used for surveying and surveillance in commercial and defense sectors. Videos and images captured are also used for research and planning purposes. Moreover, land survey equipment saves a lot of time in its application process and gives accurate output, owing to its data processing in software.

In addition, many local companies offer rental and leasing services on land equipment products, which restrict direct end-users from buying their own equipment. Leasing & renting land survey equipment is a cost-effective option and saves maintenance costs as some end-users need equipment for a limited time. In addition, the land survey equipment market is restricted, owing to a lack of skilled manpower and technical knowledge about operating equipment and its software.

However, the high initial cost and rental and leasing service providers for land survey equipment hamper the growth of the market. Moreover, data collection and upgraded data management systems using advanced software and equipment and technological advancements in land survey methods are expected to boost the land survey equipment market during the forecast period.
