Theodolite Market By Product Type (Optical Theodolite, Electronic Theodolite, Vernier Theodolite), By End-Use Industry (Construction, Transportation, Oil & Gas, Mining, Agriculture, Others) - Growth, Future Prospects, And Competitive Analysis, 2019 - 2027


The global theodolite market was valued at US$ 754.4 Mn in 2018 and is projected to witness noteworthy growth, expanding at a CAGR of 5.4% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027. Theodolite is an instrument used specifically in archaeology and survey testing for measuring vertical and horizontal angles. A theodolite comprises of a small telescope attached to devices that helps in measuring angles and has a variety of moving parts. They have the same constructional features regardless of their age or level of technology, and all of them basically perform the same functions. Theodolites have wide range of applicability in surveying like locating points on line, laying horizontal angles, prolonging survey lines, determining difference in setting out curves, elevation, aligning tunnels, etc. As a result, rising need of theodolite from surveying, civil engineering, and machine engineering sectors for making precise planar angle measurements is boosting the market for theodolite worldwide.

"Construction garnered Largest Market Share in 2018

In 2018, construction industry segment accounted for the largest market share in the overall theodolite market. The segment is expected to grow at a significant rate during the forecast period from 2019 to 2026. Technological advancements in the construction industry has led to the introduction of new surveying instruments at regular intervals. These advances have made the work of planning construction projects an easier task. Earlier, surveying the construction project was performed manually by rotating an instrument, but now theodolites leverage data electronically for more precise measurements. For many construction firms, this means being able to accurately position and layout points on the construction jobsite. Moreover, rapid urbanization has led to increased mobility infrastructure. With growing global population, more people are migrating to urban areas. This has led to the need for more infrastructure and growth in construction activities which is thereby driving the market growth.
