Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

Operators in the Test Drilling and Boring industry drill into the ground to test the attributes of the soil, measure ground heat, test for water reserves, monitor the build-up of gas under reclaimed land and sample for minerals. These services are typically required to ensure the safety of the works on brownfield and greenfield sites, as well as various industrial sites, before construction work can begin. The industry is one of the smallest in the construction sector and its performance fluctuates widely due to the influence of investment conditions in several key markets. Improving conditions across much of the construction sector have boosted the industry's performance over the past couple of years.
