Global Towers and Poles Report 2019: Sales of Towers and Poles 2018-2025 in Terms on Units and $ Value by Country - ResearchAndMarkets.com

January 7, 2019

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 7, 2019--The “Towers and Poles Report Ed 7 2019” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Over 450,000 HV lattice towers & monopoles and 63 million utility poles were sold in 2018 for electricity transmission and distribution, telephone lines and street lighting. This report analyses the geographical distribution of the tower and pole fleet, utility services carried, materials - wood/steel/concrete/composite, the principal vendors, with coverage of many other industry and market issues.

The installed base of towers and poles in the base year 2018 is analysed by:

Towers & Monopoles - by country Utility poles - by country and utility (electricity distribution, telephone, street lighting) Utility poles - by country and material (wood, concrete, steel/aluminium, composite)

Research Findings

National market commentary for Utility Poles - Market commentary on installed bases and demand for utility poles in selected countries, with information on numbers and type of pole. The March of the Monopoles - a growing trend from lattice transmission towers to monopoles is analysed with country reviews. 1.35 million Utility Poles analysed by country, material and ownership. Street Lighting - 348,000 street and parking lights in a vigorous market driven by the conversion to high-efficiency LEDs, urbanisation and passive safety. Materials are changing - wood remains popular, but a growing market for steel, concrete and composite poles is analysed. Passive safety regulation is having a significant impact on some markets - analysis of countries, legislation, the technologies and types of passive safety pole, road segments affected. Composite Poles industry, market development and production technology, with profiles of the main producers. The smart city and Street Lighting - efficiency, LEDs and the pole market. Parking is an urban priority and escalating population density puts pressure on demand for space. A small market for lighting poles to date but growing. Long term demand cycle for Towers - The long term demand cycle is charted for new additions and replacements since 1900 and forecast to 2050. Types of Lattice Tower - Lattice towers are designed for different functions and stresses and there is wide variation in cost - suspension towers, tension towers, angle suspension towers, dead end towers. Pole materials and service life - Real versus perceived service lie and utility practices. The Margin Stack - The value chain is a continuous process of adding value, cost and margin to a product. Each part which is outsourced to an external supplier means less profit for the principal manufacturer - the missed profits stack up. Joint use of Utility Poles - Joint use by different utilities is a significant factor in the pole market. The protocols for space allocation and standards are outlined. ROW - Rights of Way - A significant cost which can be a serious obstacle in designing networks and specifying equipment. With increasing pressure on space and environmental constraints, ROWs are becoming more scarce and expensive. ROW is a significant driver in the trend to Monopoles. Dangers & mitigation of damage to Towers and Poles by birds - this is not only an issue of animal welfare but also of protecting the security of supply.
