The Surveying and Mapping Services industry provides a wide range of technical services. Demand for industry services largely depends on the performance of downstream construction industries. The industry's primary markets are building and construction companies; government departments and agencies; land development companies; professional service operators; and various utility and mining operators. The past five years have been defined by increased demand from downstream construction markets, both residential and nonresidential, leading to increased demand for much of the surveying and mapping services necessary for these projects. Consequently, revenue is expected to increase over the five years to 2017. Fortunately for the industry, the next five years are expected to represent a period of continued growth for the construction sector. As a result, industry revenue is forecast to rise.
Operators in this industry perform surveying and mapping services of the surface of the earth, including the sea floor. These services may include surveying and mapping areas above or below the surface of the earth, such as the creation of view easements or segregating rights in parcels of land by creating underground utility easements, which give certain rights to real property without possessing it.
