Increasing Number of Dams and Bridge Construction will Add Impetus to Market
Rise in construction activities worldwide is a significant factor in promoting the steel wires market growth. This includes the development of hospitals, schools, and residential buildings that increased the demand for steel wires. Besides this, steel wire has applications in the building of large infrastructures such as towers, dams, bridges, and also for reinforcement and rebar bindings. This will further aid in the expansion of the market.
However, the increasing popularity of plastic ropes for various applications may take over the market for steel ropes, which may challenge the demand for steel wires. The use of plastic ropes instead of steel ropes reduces the overall weight of the machine and the axle load. This may divert manufacturers away from purchasing steel wires and further cause major hindrance to the market growth in the coming years. Nevertheless, a lead analyst at Fortune Business Insights say, “Government-supported investments for the construction of suspension bridges and the implementation of steel wires for such construction activitieswill add impetus to the market.”
North America to Dominate Market with High Demand for Construction Activities
From a geographical viewpoint, the global steel wires market is dominated by North America, with a revenue generation of USD 8.24 billion in 2018. This is attributable to the high demand for construction applications in the region. Additionally, Asia Pacific and Europe markets are likely to register a significant CAGR owing to the rise in the need for steel wires from the automobile industries. India and China are leading Asia Pacific with increasing construction activities. On the other side, the market in Latin America will grow steadily with an increase in mining and ore extraction activities. Furthermore, the rising number of gas and oil exploration activities will help the Middle East and Africa witness sluggish growth in the forecast period.
ArcelorMittalto Lead the Market Enjoying Leading Position with Diverse Portfolio
The competitive landscape of the steel wires market is fragmented in nature. However, ArcelorMittal is dominating the market, owing to the presence of a diverse portfolio that is utilized in a variety of applications. Other companies are focusing on strengthening their product and expansion of their geographical boundaries to attract high steel wire market revenue in the coming years. Furthermore, the increasing demand form the automotive and construction industries are encouraging manufacturers to implement different strategies such as merger and acquisition, product up-gradation and regional expansion and gain a competitive edge in the market in the forthcoming years.
