The current value of the global utility poles market stands at $46 billion in 2021, and it is expected to shoot up to $59 billion by 2028 at a CAGR rate of 3.8% for the forecast period of 2022 – 2028. This report will be a detailed account of all the growth factors, challenges, opportunities, and obstacles of the global utility poles market.

Utility Poles Market: Overview

A utility pole is concrete or a shaft structure that carries and shields the power lines made of fiber optic cables and electrical cables. They bear the weight of these power generating wires insulating them from the external adverse conditions and surfaces according to the positioning of these cables. They are made of different varieties including concrete, sheet, wood, or composite materials. These poles contribute and strengthen the power lines by increasing their durability and ability to withstand heavy electrical pressures.

These wires are also used for composite applications such as transmitting power from power generating companies to end-users. The energy transmission and amplification of power are also taken care of by these utility poles which stand as a strong insulated structure to safeguard the power lines while also segregating them to allocated users promptly.

Major power lines in mainstream countries are shielded by these utility poles and they run across the world as an important electrical component catering to many telecommunications and electrical service sectors globally.

Covid-19 Impacts:

The entire utility pole business sector was impacted during the pandemic period. The demand for electricity tapered down globally which led to the slump in the market during that period. The reduction in electricity demand and crippled innovations in telecommunication sectors because of lockdowns and curfews led to a poor supply of utility poles. There were also sudden closures of major telecommunication industries across the world during that period which hampered the growth of the global utility poles market excessively.

Global Utility Poles Market: Growth Drivers

Growth in energy consumption globally will lead to market growth

Growing global energy consumption, expansion of the global telecommunication industry, and approval of steel as a green material are some of the factors that drive the global utility poles market growth. Energy transmission and energy distribution of the utility poles also play a significant role in supporting utility infrastructure and fulfilling energy needs as per the demand. Increasing power generation capacity and replacement of aging networks work as additional growth drivers for the market.

The demand for utility poles in the telecommunication and electricity sector has the tendency to show some promising growth in the utility pole market. Apart from that, the need for electricity will also go up because of the increasing population in some countries. This factor will generate tremendous demand for utility poles in such countries thereby increasing the prospect of growth in the global utility pole market.
