  • Increasing demand for construction industry
  • Growing warehouse and storage industry
  • Rising DIY activities

Increasing demand for construction industry

The global construction industry is growing, driven by factors such as rapid urbanization and increase in disposable income. The growth of the various segments like manufacturing, chemicals, construction, mining, and metal fabrication is driving the growth of the ladder market,” says Sarah Haque, one of the lead analysts at Technavio.

In the US, there will be an increase in the industrial constructions such as refineries, gas facilities, chemical, and power plants. The home building segment is also predicting an increase in new home sales. Ladders are used extensively in manufacturing ecosystems to run daily operations, thereby driving market growth.

Growing warehouse and storage industry

The manufacturing companies are expanding their production capacities and operations, leading to an increased demand for logistics and storage of raw materials and finished goods, driving the growth of warehouse and storage industry. With the growth of warehouses, there would be an increase in demand for ladders in the industry, as reorganization of warehouses requires professional management services and tools for efficient operations. Also, the increased outsourcing of warehouse activities propels the growth of the global warehouse ladders market.

Rising DIY activities

The do-it-yourself trend is sweeping the globe, acting as a key driver of the global ladders market. DIY encourages household consumers to engage in activities to manufacture and create their own products from scratch and involves the backward integration of raw materials, creating a demand for ladders,” says Sarah.

The growth of the DIY market is attributed to the increasing number of retail stores such as hypermarkets, supermarkets, and specialty stores. These stores make popular offerings such as step ladders and aluminum ladders easily available for consumers. Additionally, consumers are more aware of the various uses of ladders and the appropriate specifications due to promotional activities by vendors, thereby enhancing market growth.
