Scaffolding accessories are essential equipment used in construction sites to provide support and structural stability during maintenance and erection of buildings. Scaffolding accessories such as ropes, braces, boards, beams, nuts, bolts, anchors, towers, and guardrails enable construction workers a safe working platform at heights. These accessories safeguard workers from falls during scaffold assembly and disassembly. In addition, they allow easy material handling at height during construction of buildings. The need for repair and refurbishment of existing buildings, along with rapid urbanization and infrastructure development is fueling the demand for scaffolding accessories globally.
The global Scaffolding Accessories Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 1.68 Mn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Market key trends:
One of the key trends fueling the scaffolding accessories market growth is the development of lightweight and portable scaffolding systems. Traditional scaffolding systems are heavy, bulky, and time-consuming to assemble and dismantle. However, innovators are focusing on developing ultra-lightweight yet durable scaffolding accessories made of composite materials like carbon fiber that can support heavy loads but are easy to transport. For instance, Safway Group launched “Navigator,” an engineered lightweight scaffolding system with accessories weighing 30-50% lesser than conventional steel systems. Such innovative product launches are expected to boost the scaffolding accessories market over the forecast period.
Threat of new entrants: Low capital requirements and the availability of second-hand equipment have made the threat of new entrants moderate. However, established brands have strong relationships with major construction contractors.
