Geotechnical service helps determine if a site is suitable for a particular construction project. Geotechnics is a civil engineering discipline that deals with the theory of the mechanics of soils and rocks to study the physical properties of terrestrial materials. Geotechnical services include drilling a deep hole in the ground, collecting soil samples, testing the sample, analyzing the test report, and making suitable foundation recommendations. These services play an important role in the planning of large infrastructures, such as high-rise buildings, bridges, railways, tunnels, and similar construction projects on land and at sea. In addition to construction, geotechnical services are used in the oil & gas and mining industries.

Global geotechnical services market size was valued at $1.9 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $3.7 billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2021 to 2030. Massive amount of investments made by government authorities for construction activities in emerging economies is one the factors responsible for driving the growth of the geotechnical services market. Moreover, developments in oil & gas projects is anticipated to benefit the geotechnical instrumentation & monitoring market in the coming years.
