Global Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Market size is projected to grow from USD 315 million in 2022 to USD 453 million by 2027 at CAGR of 7.5% during the forecast period.
The growing government involvement and mandates for implementing GPR in applications such as utility detection and transportation infrastructure development will help grow this market. Government mandates to facilitate communication between the owners and operators of underground facilities and the excavation teams, is driving the demand for GPR systems worldwide. For instance, it is mandatory to call 811 before digging anywhere in Washington; failure to abide by this mandate is against the state law, which may lead to a fine, charges, or even criminal convictions.
