Utility Markers Global Market Report 2023: Advantages Of Electronic/RF Markers Over Traditional Marking Technologies Boosts Growth

(MENAFN- GlobeNewsWire - Nasdaq) Dublin, June 07, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "utility markers market by type (ball markers, disk markers, tape markers, spike markers), configuration (passive, programmable), utility type (gas, power, telecommunications, water & wastewater) and region - global forecast to 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global utility markers market size is estimated to grow from USD 341 million in 2023 to USD 471 million by 2028, at a CAGR of 6.7%.

It is imperative that while developing new infrastructure or upgrading the old infrastructure, the existing assets should not be damaged. Hence, underground utility identification plays a crucial role.

The correct location of underground utilities allows contractors to map all the utilities and create a plan, which ensures that new infrastructure is constructed in a way that prevents interfering with existing utilities and reduces the risk of accidents or damage.

Passive segment to hold the largest share of utility markers market during the forecast period

Passive markers are also referred to as analog or non-ID markers. These markers are designed to permanently mark underground buried or line structures. Passive markers offer cost-effective and reliable marking solutions for significant and less significant points of underground line structures. Hence, they are a viable marking solution for applications such as gas, power, telecom, and water utilities. These markers are widely used in underground utility detection, such as gas pipelines, optical and telecommunication cables, sewage pipelines, power cables, and water pipelines.

Water & wastewater utility type is expected to grow at a steady CAGR during the forecast period

An underground water pipeline distribution system has buried pipes that transport water to residential and industrial structures. These pipelines are used to transport drinking water lines, sewage lines, and reclaimed water lines. Utility markers such as ball and tape markers are increasingly used in water & wastewater applications to mark and locate valves, plastic pipes, buried service drops, tees, conduit stubs, main/service coupling, and clean-outs. Countries worldwide are constantly working on the upgradation and expansion of their water & wastewater pipeline networks for the smooth functioning of water supply. This is expected to drive the adoption of utility markers in water & wastewater applications.

The market in Europe is expected to grow at an impressive CAGR during the forecast period

Germany is among the leading economies in Europe and one of the largest markets for utility markers in Europe. The focus on the development and maintenance of public infrastructure for high-quality services and safety drives the domestic demand for utility markers. The government of Germany is focusing on increasing its share of renewable energy sources in its overall electricity generation; hence, investments are being made to construct renewable energy infrastructure. The strong focus of Germany on developing its power/electricity infrastructure is expected to fuel the growth of utility markers in the country.
