LONDON, Jan. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- This is the 3rd edition of the StatPlan Towers and Poles Report. Towers and poles are vital components of overhead transmission and distribution networks. Between them they constitute a market worth over $28 billion annually. Large towers can be the most expensive element of complex high voltage systems. The basic utility pole can be relatively cheap, but with nearly 1½ billion of them around the world, they amount to a large and often overlooked market, for poles and wood protection products and services. The report sizes demand for electricity transmission towers and utility poles in base year 2014 and forecasts demand from 2015 to 2020. The report contains comprehensive quantitative data and qualitative analysis about the towers and poles markets and stock, globally and for all regions and countries. The report analyses the $17 billion global market for electricity transmission towers and the $11 billion market for utility poles at ex-factory prices in 2015. The report provides market and infrastructure data with global figures, totals for each region and every country.
Steel towers and poles installed base is analysed in units for the year 2014 , by region and 124 countries, separately for, Electricity transmission towers, and Utility poles (including electricity distribution, telecoms and railways\for wood, concrete, steel and composite. Steel towers and poles market demand is forecast in units and $ value, from 2015 to 2020 by region and 124 countries, separately for electricity transmission towers and utility poles. The long term demand cycle for steel towers is plotted. Towers commonly have 40 to 60 year lives so the replacement cycle is a long term issue. To determine the demand cycle it is necessary to chart the growth of the tower stock over many decades. StatPlan has charted this, for towers and poles since 1900 and the cycle is plotted to determine the long term demand cycle Demand for utility poles is heavily dependent on replacement, which accounted for 62% of the market in 2015. Service lives vary from as little as 5 years in some African regions to over 100 years in other countries. This has been surveyed and is an essential metric of the demand projections.
