Market Report Description

The Global Scaffolding Market size is expected to reach $62.4 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 5.2% CAGR during the forecast period.

Scaffolding is a provisional framework that supports workers and materials during the construction, repair, and maintenance of buildings and other artificial structures like bridges, elevated tanks, and towering structures like towers. Scaffolding materials were required as a result. Scaffold materials are most commonly used in cultural events and activities relating to media and entertainment for specialized reasons. Multiple parameters influence the choice of scaffold materials used in the production of different scaffolding products.

Construction is among the most dangerous sectors, with a high rate of work-related injuries and deaths. The usage of scaffolds, which is frequently ascribed to falls from height, is an unique concern for occupational hazards in the construction sector. Assessing the risk levels for various building phases on scaffolding, with diverse job trades, is critical in order to avoid fall incidents.

End consumers are prepared to spend a higher price for scaffold items that work well. Over the projection period, lightweight suspended scaffoldings will acquire substantial traction. These scaffoldings will see a rise in their ability to drastically boost suspended scaffolding production, improve transportation efficiency, and shorten installation time. Due to characteristics such as cost effectiveness and ease of installation, two point suspended scaffoldings would witness continuous expansion and will continue to be the most chosen by end users.

The scaffolding industry has seen a significant increase in the number of competitors supplying components to improve scaffold performance. For years, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has set standards for preplanning, training, and component and design selection. Flexible structures have been made possible because to the usage of sophisticated manufacturing methods. The panorama of the scaffolding sector has been enriched by the expanding number of qualified individuals.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 epidemic has caused damage on the worldwide economy. The construction sector is now dealing with labor shortages, financial pressures, and supply chain issues as a result of the epidemic. This has had a big influence on rental construction services including scaffolding, roofing, and interior finishing goods like carpets, acoustic panels, and fire alarm systems.

Furthermore, the construction sector is heavily reliant on China for practically all materials and equipment, and any disruption will have an impact on the transportation and delivery of basic structures by construction firms and architects. The following two years will be crucial in regulating the predicted supply chain delays as well as the worldwide impact on the building sector and the world economy.

Market Growth Factors:

Infrastructure Developments are expanding across the geographies

Infrastructure development will be substantial in several places throughout the projection timeframe. The enormous expansion in infrastructure building, both residential and non-residential, will provide lots of opportunity for the scaffolding sector to expand. The covid 19 has had a negative impact on the market.

The building business is providing less prospects for market expansion. Nevertheless, the government's new measures to upgrade a company's infrastructure may create more market growth chances. The worldwide market is likewise undergoing extraordinary changes. The utilisation of high-end materials and supporting structures is a relatively new trend in the industry. As a result of these advancements, the total market will have additional opportunities.

The Residential Sector is driving demand

The worldwide scaffolding market is growing due to increased investment in the housing industry and rising construction spending in nations such as the United States, Japan, India, and others. Furthermore, rising urbanisation and population growth are predicted to boost demand for scaffolding systems for renovations, new construction, and a variety of other applications, propelling the global scaffolding market forward. In Mexico, for example, urbanisation increased from 79.87 percent in 2017 to 80.73 percent by 2020. Scaffolding allows builders to effortlessly transfer supplies to the top of a building's construction. The scaffolding serves as a stair-like framework to support the whole construction project.

Market Restraining Factors

Raw Material Price Fluctuation

Raw material prices fluctuate a lot in the scaffolding industry. Wood, steel, and aluminium goods are used to construct the scaffold. The cost of these items might fluctuate a lot. Price changes in cement, sand, and other construction supplies can also have an impact on overall growth. Price changes are a key stumbling block since they might affect Market Revenue. Market discrepancies can be caused by fluctuating revenue. The price changes in building materials are expected to be significant in the projection year. This problem has the potential to slow the market's overall growth pace.

Scaffolding Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2020

Material Outlook

Based on Material, the market is segmented into Steel, Aluminum and Wood. During the projected period, the aluminum scaffolding sector is predicted to develop at the fastest rate. Aluminum is lighter than steel and is used in large quantities as scaffolding which can be physically lifted and installed. Furthermore, aluminum scaffolding may be constructed faster than steel scaffolding, lowering labour costs. Wooden poles and bamboo are often employed in underdeveloped nations with high labour costs. Bamboo scaffolding is widely used in Asia Pacific, and it is valued for its sturdiness, flexibility, and environmental friendliness.

Type Outlook

Based on Type, the market is segmented into Supported, Suspended and Rolling. In terms of revenue, the supported scaffolding segment led the market in 2020. Supported scaffolds are made up with one or more platforms that are held in place by rigid, load-bearing components such poles, legs, frames, and outriggers.

End User Outlook

Based on End User, the market is segmented into Residential, Commercial and Industrial. The residential building sector's demand is a major driver of the industry. Scaffolding is continuously in demand in the infrastructure industry. Scaffolding is also required in the new series of high rail projects. High trail construction is widely recognised in the Asia Pacific area.
