Global ground penetrating radar (GPR) sensor market is anticipated to grow significantly in the forecast period due to a rise in demand for radars. Ground penetrating radar (GPR) sensor is a geophysical equipment that records subsurface features without the need for probing, digging, or drilling.
The top profile on the equipment display reflections of geological objects and units to a definite depth at the bottom. It is operated by transmitting ultra-high RF waves in the ground pulses using a transducer (aka antenna). This antenna captures and stores the reflected waves in a control unit of the equipment. The results are plotted on the top profile in different color bands of the control unit.
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) sensor market is driven by the increasing geopolitical instabilities and territorial fights, rise in advancements in radar technologies, and an increase in need for safety, assistant, and comfort features in equipment. However, the market is facing hindrances due to increase in demand for robot cars, and significant development cost.
Few opportunities faced by the market includes the increase in demand for self-driving cars and a rise in military spending on the global scale. On the other hand, ground penetrating radars are highly sensitive to noise interference which is a challenging the market. Moreover, stringent regulations for the use of radar systems is also a challenge to the market.
Ground penetrating radar (GPR) sensor industry is categorized on the basis of product type, frequency, application, and geography. On the basis of product type, market is divided into cart-based ground penetrating radar and handheld ground penetrating radar. Cart-based ground penetrating radar segment is expected to hold a significant share of the market in future due to increased applications, such as cemetery and grave surveys, utility location surveys, and sinkhole and void surveys. In terms of frequency, market is divided into frequency >800 MHz, 250 MHz< frequency ≤800 MHz, and frequency ≤250 MHz.
Based on application, ground penetrating radar sensor market is divided into municipal inspection, transport and road inspection, archaeology, disaster inspection, and others. Transport and road inspection segment is expected to lead the market in future due to increasing industrialization and urbanization worldwide. Disaster inspection also accounts for a significant share of the market due to increasing incidences of natural calamities like earthquakes, landslides, volcanos, etc.
Geographically, GPR sensor market is segmented as North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is predicted to dominate the market in the forecast period. Furthermore, Europe is also expected to lead the market due to growing demand for various applications.
