Technavio heavy industry analysts highlight the following three factors that are contributing to the growth of the global surveying equipment market:

Rapid urbanization in emerging economies

In 2014, the most urbanized countries were Northern America with about 82% of people living in urban areas. Latin America and the Caribbean region had 80%, and Europe had 73%. Africa and Asia have mostly rural population with 40% and 48% of their respective populations living in urban areas. However, they are urbanizing faster than other regions and are predicted to reach 56% and 64%, respectively by 2050.

Anju Ajaykumar, a lead engineering tools research analyst at Technavio, says, “With increased urbanization, the demand for resources increases and this will in-turn increase the need for transportations and residential facilities. The growing urbanization will drive the demand for surveying equipment.”

Growth in railway sector in APAC

The rise in air traffic and road transport congestion has made rail transport a feasible alternative to effectively address the problem of infrastructure saturation in both advanced and emerging economies such as India and China. Rails are safer and cleaner and provide a more credible and competitive alternative compared with road and air transport.

In terms of investment, the railway market in APAC is experiencing significant growth due to developing existing rail infrastructure. Over the past decade, investment in railways worldwide has increased from 10% to 30% with APAC countries accounting for a major share,” adds Anju.

Rise in construction industry

In 2015, emerging markets constituted 50% of the total construction activities worldwide to increase to 65% by 2025. The US experienced a major growth in the construction sector. The construction value for residential and non-residential buildings is predicted to reach about USD 700 billion by 2016.

Further, India's construction sector will also contribute to a significant share to the overall growth. Apart from Smart Cities project developed by GOI, the Housing for All by 2022 initiative will be a major game-changer for the construction industry in India. This initiative will ensure affordable housing, quicker approvals from authorities, and supportive policy changes, which will drive the construction activity.
