The conventional method of analyzing ‘subsurface conditions’ in the laboratory is replaced by the cone penetrometer test. This is because of the benefits of cone penetrometer for providing real-time characterization of subsurface. Cone penetrometer is used for evaluating the consistency of soils, level of compaction of land and the bearing capacity of pavement subgrades and shallow foundations. Cone penetrometer has its use primarily for fine-grained soils, particularly soft soils, to depths of 30'. The cone penetrometer is provided with a 60-degree vertex angled cone and area of 1.5 cm squared. Also, cone penetrometer is provided with a 3 cm squared area for use in very soft soils. The benefits of using cone penetrometer in all sites of soil, low sampling cost and increased flexibility provide extensive opportunities for the cone penetrometer market. The arrival of the digital cone penetrometer is expected to provide significant growth for the cone penetrometer market over the forecast period. This is because; the use of digital cone penetrometer ease the test procedure. Also the results obtained by the digital cone penetrometer is nor dependent on the design of apparatus neither on the judgment of the operator. Moreover, the digital cone penetrometer test applies to a wide range of soil which ensures increasing opportunities for the cone penetrometer market.
Cone Penetrometer Market: Drivers and challenges
Cone penetrometer market drivers
The increasing use of the cone penetrometer technology for the site containing the unconsolidated sediments is expected to ensure a significant growth for the cone penetrometer market during the forecast period. The cone penetrometer is expected to find new opportunities for its use at the sites with rock or cemented layers and large boulders. On the other hand, the increasing use of the digital cone penetrometer due to its wide range of application is expected to ensure considerate growth for the cone penetrometer market during the forecast period.
Cone penetrometer market challenges
High soil density is expected to provide a challenge for the use of cone penetrometer. Some of the sensors used in the cone penetrometer may be hampered by fouling of the lens due to a reaction to dust. Such factors are provided challenges for the growth of the cone penetrometer market during the forecast period.
