Market Report Description

The Global Rope Market size is expected to reach $19.7 billion by 2030, rising at a market growth of 6.5% CAGR during the forecast period.

Europe maritime and fishing industries are expanding which lead to increase in demand for synthetic ropes. Consequently, Europe acquired $2,836.9 million revenue in the market in 2022. Moreover, the expansion of the construction sector drives the need for steel wire and synthetic rope. According to European Union, building output rose 4.8% in the EU and 4.1% in the euro region in January 2022 compared to January 2021. Additionally, hemp rope, synthetic rope, and jute rope have expanded due to the rise in DIY interior décor and home repair projects across Germany. Some of the factors impacting the market are aquaculture Sector Growth, expanding construction industry, and high raw material costs.

Rope Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2019-2030

The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations anticipated that 178 million tonnes of aquatic animals would be produced globally in 2020. Approximately 88% of this was utilized for direct or indirect human consumption, with aquaculture output accounting for 49% and capture production for 51% of the total. As a result, during the projection period, the enormous growth of the shipping sector and seaborne trade will also increase the demand for ropes. The amount spent on construction in the United States in April was $1.74 trillion, 0.2 percent and 12.3 percent greater than in April 2021. However, to increase energy efficiency, the Canadian government will provide more than CAD $2 million to three house construction projects in Ontario. Rope demand is fueled by its use in the construction industry.

However, Plastic fibers are very costly and are used to make plastic ropes. Steel is less costly than the raw materials or plastic fibers used to make ropes, such as PE, PP, and nylon. The cost of high-performance specialty fibers like aramid, HMPE, and LCP is higher than that of the aforementioned basic materials. The price increases with the fiber's strength. During the anticipated time, these issues are limiting the expansion of the market.

Product Outlook

On the basis of product, the market is segmented into synthetic, steel wire, cotton, and others. The steel wire segment dominated the market with the maximum revenue share in 2022. The mining, oil and gas, maritime, and construction sectors often employ steel wire ropes. It consists of wires, strands, and a steel and fiber core. Twisting the wires—typically constructed of stainless and high carbon steel—creates steel wire ropes. The rope's job is to protect and support the outer strands so they may perform as intended. The strength-to-weight ratio of steel wire rope is more significant, which is a key characteristic for many applications, particularly in the nautical and fishing industries.

End-Users Outlook

Based on end-users, the market is divided into industrial, commercial, and residential. IN 2022, the commercial segment garnered a significant revenue share in the market. Camping, rock climbing, logistics, agriculture, adventure sports, and other purposes are commercial uses for ropes. Ropes, which may be used for bundling, holding, and fastening, are a need on construction sites. They may also have been used for fall protection in specific circumstances. Nylon, hemp, polyester, and polypropylene are a few of the numerous kinds of rope utilized in industry.
