Utility location is the process of finding and marking public utility mains that are underground. These may contain lines for electricity distribution, telecommunication, natural gas, television cable, fiber optics, street lights, traffic lights, storm drains, water mains, and wastewater pipes. In some places, most important national defense communication lines, oil and gas pipelines, mass transportation, road and rails channels also contend for space underground.
This growth can be accredited to the concern for security and protection of underground utilities, betterment of innovative utility locating technologies over outmoded utility locating methods, and government creativities toward the execution of utility locators. However, high possession and maintenance costs limits the growth of the utility locator market. The high cost of possession and maintenance of equipment, continuous innovation affecting to utility locating devices, and strict government policies to locate underground utilities before excavating and construction activities contribute to the greater growth of this market.
