The fiberglass light poles industry is expected to witness rapid gains as the advancements in smart city lighting and emerging IoT technologies are driving the demand for easy installation and durable lighting infrastructure. Stringent government regulations have pressurized enterprises in reducing carbon footprints and majority of organizations are retrofitting lighting infrastructure in their premises with smart lighting.

The supply chain disruptions from China and the U.S. has severely hit the fiberglass light pole market growth. These two countries account for more than 75% of the global fiberglass production, hence the sealing of international borders have significantly impacted the production of fiberglass light poles.

Surging prices of metallic poles to fuel the market demand

The fiberglass light poles market is witnessing rapid growth in the wake of rising metal prices, including those of iron, steel, nickel, and aluminum. Flat-rolled steel prices have been steadily rising since October 2019. As per the data released by London Metal Exchange, there has been an over 20% rise in steel prices in January 2020 compared to October 2019. As these metals are predominantly used for the construction of lighting equipment, their rising prices have set up new market expansion opportunities for fiberglass light poles.

Aluminum prices have also seen extreme market volatility with more than a 10% increase between October 2019 - March 2020. In addition, the severe halt in aluminum production facilities in China owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has also caused inflation in aluminum prices. China is the world’s largest producer of aluminum with an estimated market share of 55% in global aluminum production in 2019.

Fiberglass Light Poles Market Analysis

In Italy, the round tapered fiberglass light pole held around 55% market revenue share in 2019 and accounted for nearly 60% of total shipments. The round tapered fiberglass light pole features a UV-inhibiting polyurethane coating and is available in multiple lighting styles. These composite poles are also available in direct burial and anchor-based structures. Few companies manufacturing these poles in compliance with the ANSI, AASHTO & ASTM standards.

Furthermore, unlike square straight poles, round tapered fiberglass light poles offer the maximum nominal mounting height of up to 40’ with a wider base.  Round tapered fiberglass lighting poles are ideal for outdoor lighting applications. The need for decorative lighting poles will drive the round tapered fiberglass pole segment growth.
