An Incisive, In-depth Analysis on the Soil Field Testing Equipment Market

This study offers a comprehensive, 360 degree analysis on the Soil Field Testing Equipment market, bringing to fore insights that can help stakeholders identify the opportunities as well as challenges. It tracks the global Soil Field Testing Equipment market across key regions, and offers in-depth commentary and accurate quantitative insights. The study also includes incisive competitive landscape analysis, and provides key recommendations to market players on winning imperatives and successful strategies.

Continuous developments in infrastructure is a prime factor that is expected to fuel the growth of the global soil field testing equipment market. Soil plays a key role in all the areas of civil engineering. Engineers must analyse and ensure the property of soil during the design stage, since soil is the foundation of any infrastructure. When highways, bases, sub-bases, railway tracks and dams are constructed, it is important to check the compatibility of the material with soil, and this is where soil field testing equipment is used. Before constructing a structure, engineers extract, examine and test a soil sample using soil field testing equipment. Soil testing is one of the most important functions in civil engineering and geotechnical testing for the design of embankments, pavements and others. Soil field testing equipment provides data on soil mechanics and material common to the soil, which includes clay, silt, gravel, sand, rock and others. Soil testing equipment is important as testing is a critical parameter in determining the characteristics of soil during the construction process.

Some of the most widely used soil field testing equipment is soil moisture testers, soil penetrometers, soil density, pocket shear vane sets, soil classification tests, soil resistivity testing, soil density volumeters, digital pH meters and others. Soil field testing equipment market is regulated by various stringent standards set by National Bureau of Standards and others. For Instance, Soil density test is done to meet the requirements of the American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM) standards. These standards need to be followed by the construction companies and ultimately boost the demand for soil field testing equipment and are driving the global soil field testing equipment market.

Stringent standards govern the testing of permeability of granular soils 

Permeability is one of the most important parameters which is required to be tested for construction projects where flow of water through soil is a matter of concern. There are various regulatory standards which need to be followed by the companies during the process of construction, which are creating high demand for soil field testing equipment. These standards are creating a high demand for water permeability test equipment as well as soil field testing equipment, which is resulting in the growth of the soil field testing equipment market.  

For instance, standards, such as AASHTO T 215 (Standard Method of Test for Permeability of Granular Soils), this describes the procedure to determine the permeability of water through granular soils in steady condition, D-422 for the test method for particle size analysis, D-4253 for the maximum index density & unit weight of soils using a vibratory table, D-4254 for the minimum index density & the unit weight of soils and calculations of relative density and others, have a significant impact on the demand for soil field testing equipment are driving the soil field testing equipment market.

Increase in the number of construction projects

Increasing spend on research and development is a key factor driving the soil field testing equipment market. Moreover, rapid urbanisation and the increasing spend on construction is expected to create potential growth opportunities for the soil field testing equipment market during the forecast period. In addition, factors such as rising awareness about safety and security is also attracting the construction sector towards soil field testing equipment. Thus, the soil field testing equipment market is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period.

For instance, in October 2018, China’s transport infrastructure reached USD 327.7 Bn with a 1.4% year-on-year growth. Increasing investments in transport projects is contributing to the overall increase in the infrastructure sector of China. These construction projects are creating high demand for soil field testing equipment and significantly fuelling the growth of the soil field testing equipment market.

Rapid infrastructural development in India and China

Asia Pacific excluding Japan is expected to hold a prominent share of the global soil field testing equipment market. The growing construction sector, along with the increasing rate of urbanisation in the region, is also expected to fuel the demand for soil field testing equipment. China and India are expected to witness high Y-o-Y growth during the forecast period. Governments are undertaking initiatives to strengthen the construction sector in the developing countries of APEJ, which is expected to drive the soil field testing equipment market during the forecast period.

For instance, in India, the sales of the residential segment of the soil field testing market grew by 12% in Q1, 2018 across the top 7 cities, as compared to Q4, 2017. The increasing demand for homes from consumers is contributing to the growth of the construction sector and positively impacting the soil field testing equipment market. 

Surging demand for automated testing equipment

High technology-enabled soil field testing equipment is witnessing high demand from consumers. To tap the soil field testing equipment market, vendors are offering fully automated soil field testing equipment. The demand for technologically advanced soil field testing equipment is expected to increase during the forecast period. FMI predicts that offering advanced soil field testing equipment will remain a key strategy implemented by vendors to attract customers.
