By Product Type Analysis

Forged swivel couplers segment is expected to witness highest growth

The forged swivel couplers segment is expected to grow at the highest growth during the anticipated period, which is largely accelerated by its rapidly increasing demand and needs from the construction industry for different purposes, including scaffolding and support systems along with the surging penetration for extensive scaffolding in various infrastructure projects such as highways, bridges, airports, and public spaces.

The pressed segment led the industry market with substantial market revenue share in 2022 on account of its wide range of beneficial characteristics and properties, including cost-effectiveness, lightweight, and higher reliability compared to other product types available in the market. Besides this, rising innovations in manufacturing processes and improvements in materials might lead to more advanced and durable pressed swivel couplers and are likely to attract customers seeking better-performing products across the world.    

By Load Capacity Analysis

1100-2300 lbs segment held the maximum market share in 2022

The 1100-2300 lbs segment held the maximum market share both in terms of revenue and volume in 2022, which is mainly driven by the growing use and prevalence of these capacity couplers in various construction and infrastructure projects, including the construction of bridges, buildings, and stadiums along with the increasing awareness of sustainable construction practices and environmental regulations leading to the greater demand for lightweight, eco-friendly swivel couplers.

Apart from this, major governments and construction regulatory bodies across both developed and developing countries often mandate safety standards for construction sites or projects, which results in a higher need and demand for effective swivel couplers, as they play a very crucial role in ensuring the stability and safety of scaffold structures and positively impacted the demand for compliant and high-quality swivel couplers.

By End-Use Analysis

Construction industry segment accounted for the largest share in 2022

The construction industry segment accounted for the largest shares of the market. The growth of the segment market can be mainly accelerated by the rapid rate of urbanization and population growth across various regions that creates significant demand for new construction and development projects like commercial spaces, residential buildings, and public utilities, which often require swivel couplers to facilitate safe and efficient scaffolding. For instance, according to the United Nations, approximately 55 percent of the global population resides in urban settlements, and the number is expected to reach around 68 percent by 2050; that means the world’s population could add another 2.5 billion people to the urban regions.

The manufacturing & fabrication industry segment is likely to gain a substantial growth rate over the next coming years, as they are being widely used in the fabrication of pipe and tube structures and provide greater flexibility and adjustability in the assembly. Additionally, companies are also focusing on exploring their applications in rigging and hoisting to create connections between different components, allowing for the articulation and movement in the rigging system.

Regional Insights
