Fiberglass Light Pole Market size is set to surpass USD 550 million by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
The fiberglass light poles industry is expected to undergo a dynamic transition as advancements in fiberglass manufacturing technologies and improvements in material quality have spurred the deployment of fiberglass-based light poles. Fiberglass leverages the inherent strength of fiber-reinforced plastic to provide excellent resilience and sturdiness against harsh climatic conditions. Furthermore, it is non-conductive to electricity and ensures the minimum risks of electrical shocks during cases of power supply anomalies.
Growing investments in smart city projects to support the fiberglass light pole market
Smart lighting and smart poles are increasingly gaining traction among government agencies for their implementation in smart cities. Smart lighting has been recognized as one of the most actionable and ready to implement technologies in urban cities, leading to Low-Carbon Economies (LCEs) and reducing the environmental pollution. This has led to an increase in the deployment of fiberglass poles for smart lighting purposes.
