The utility markers market is anticipated to expand at a high CAGR over the forecast period.

Utility markers are the physical indicators used to pinpoint the exact location of the subsurface utility. It is used along with underground ducts and wires to provide physical properties of subterranean utilities. Thus, obtaining precise locations through utility markers helps in the maintenance of the infrastructure and also in developing new infrastructure without disturbing the existing infrastructure.

Obtaining precise location of subterranean utilities helps in the development of new infrastructure. The data obtained is utilized to increase the efficiency of new infrastructure sites and also helps in eliminating problems in existing utilities.

Utility markers help in improving safety by illuminating the surface whenever light is focused the surface reflects the light and gets illuminated thus resulting in fewer accidents and property damage. It is essential to use utility markers at various required locations because at the time of emergencies like leaks, breakdowns, or service outages it helps in rapid response and resolution of the problem.

Market Drivers
