Future Market Insights
Industrial ladders are a unique kind of regular ladders and are used only for industrial purposes. They allow personnel to stand safely on them and effectively access various equipment, projects and materials. Industrial ladders come in a variety of designs and features and are used to perform both common as well unique tasks by an operator. Standard, folding, stock picker, cantilever and pivoting are some of the most commonly preferred designs and shapes in industrial ladders. Various British and European standards such as BS1129 class 1 and BS2037 class 1 are recommended for their design and performance. These heavy-duty ladders are preferred in areas where onerous conditions of storage, carriage & usage exist. BS EN 131 and BS EN 14975 designs, on the other hand, are recommended for ladders made from aluminum, steel or plastics as well as for loft ladders. An operator using a cantilever ladder can easily overcome any kind of obstacle, hindrance or hard surface by using the platform attached to the back of the ladder. Rooftop platform ladders are used when an operator needs to overcome rooftop obstacles like pipes, etc. These ladders evenly distribute weight and thus, prevent accidents while an operator is trying to climb.
Industrial Ladder Market: Dynamics
Unlike aluminum, fiberglass provides high durability and ruggedness. It also offers low conductivity, thereby reducing the hazard of electrocution on coming in contact with high voltage power lines. The many advantages of fiberglass ladders as compared to wood or aluminum ladders is expected to drive the global industrial ladder market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the capacity and height of industrial ladders is much better than that of regular ladders used for residential purposes. Stringent government regulations such as those surrounding personnel safety and maximum height of ladders, imposed on growing and developed economies are also expected to drive the global industrial ladder market over the forecast period. Ability to move across platforms is a unique feature incorporated in industrial ladders which help them perform more efficiently work. This particular feature is likely to rein in favour of industrial ladders during the forecast period.
Limited reach of industrial ladders is a major factor hampering the growth of global industrial ladder market over the forecast period. Furthermore, limited rescue features and unavailability of heat shield protection at the tip are some other factors that might hinder the growth of the global industrial ladder market over the forecast period.
