In this report, Technavio highlights the increasing popularity of fiberglass ladders as one of the key emerging trends in the global ladder market:
Increasing popularity of fiberglass ladders
Apart from traditional raw materials such as wood, steel, aluminum, and iron, many vendors use fiberglass to manufacture ladders. Fiberglass ladders are generally known as glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) ladders. In the US, around 53% of the ladders are made of fiberglass. The demand for fiberglass ladders is expected to increase during the forecast period because of the advantages associated with them. One of the advantages associated with fiberglass ladders is that they are durable as they are weather and rust resistant. This makes them ideal for applications such as painting and decoration. These ladders are lightweight and therefore, can be easily moved from one place to another.
“Fiberglass ladders are resistant to denting and twisting owing to the high tensile strength of the raw material, and they are a good insulator of electricity. Thus, fiberglass ladders are suitable for applications that need them to come directly into contact with the power supply. The advantages of fiberglass ladders make them suitable for multipurpose applications. The demand for multipurpose ladders is increasing, which will increase the adoption of fiberglass ladders during the forecast period,” says a senior analyst at Technavio.
