For centuries civilisations have used surveying techniques to determine the physical dimensions of earth and space, to delineate ownership of land, to erect buildings and structures, to create maps and to define political boundaries between countries. Today, the Surveying Services industry continues to perform most of these tasks.
Industry revenue is expected to total $3.75 billion in 2012-13, up 3.3% from the previous year due to the cyclical upswing in the housing and commercial building markets. Industry value added currently totals $2.06 billion or 0.1% of Australia's GDP.
This industry comprises firms and independent consultants that provide professional surveying services spanning a wide range of markets and disciplines such as cadastral surveying, construction surveying, mapping services (including geophysical) and the provision of integrated surveying services.
The report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecast, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
