According to a new market report published by Lucintel, the future of the global utility pole market looks promising with opportunities in the electric transmission and distribution sector. The global utility pole market is expected to reach an estimated $52.1 billion by 2024 with a CAGR of 4.1% from 2019 to 2024. The major growth drivers for this market are increasing power generation capacity, growing transmission and distribution infrastructure, and replacement of aging networks.

In this market, steel, concrete, wood and composite are the materials used for manufacturing utility poles. On the basis of comprehensive research, Lucintel forecasts that steel will remain the largest material segment over the forecast period due to its high durability and low maintenance. Lucintel predicts that composite poles are expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period because they offer rot and corrosion resistance, minimal maintenance, easy installation, and superior strength-to-weight ratio.

Within the global utility pole market, distribution will remain the largest application over the forecast period due to increasing electrification of remote areas in developing economies.
Asia Pacific will remain the largest market and it is also expected to witness the highest growth over the forecast period due to increasing investments in the power sector and improvement in the transmission and distribution networks in developing nations, particularly as China and India.

Emerging trends which have a direct impact on the dynamics of the market include wider use of transmission monopoles and increased usage of composite poles in transmission and distribution. Valmont Industries, KEC International, Qingdao, Skipper, Stella Jones, Europoles, Elsewedy Electric, and Nippon Concrete Industries Co Ltd. are among the major suppliers of utility poles.
