Global Fish Tape Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Fish tape is a thin, flexible steel cable used to pull wires through conduit. Fish tape has a hook on one end and a eyelet on the other. The hook is used to grab the wire, while the eyelet is attached to the pulling device. Fish tape is important because it helps electricians install wiring without having to go through walls or ceilings.

Steel Fish Tape:

Steel fish tape is a new term in the fish tape market and it entered into the industry recently. It is also known as cold-rolled steel tape or CRST for short. Steel fish tapes are used in various applications such as shipbuilding, bridge construction, railway track construction and maintenance, off-highway vehicle assembly (trucks & buses), wind turbine blade manufacturing among others.

Fiberglass Fish Tape:

Fiberglass fish tape is a flexible electrical cable made up of two layers of glass yarns insulated with polyester resin. It has high tensile strength and can withstand stretching, contracting, and bending. Fiberglass fish tape is used in various applications including shipbuilding, oil rigs, wind turbine installations onshore as well as offshore locations for power transmission purposes.

The global fiberglass fish tape market size was valued at USD 830 million in 2016.

Application Insights:

The others application segment includes medical staff, maintenance workers, and chefs. The product is widely used by the aforementioned applications due to its lightweight and high strength. In addition, these products are also used in a variety of industries including food & beverage processing and transportation which further boosts their demand globally.

Electricians are expected to be the fastest-growing application segment over the forecast period owing to increasing demand for fish tapes from emerging economies such as India China Indonesia Vietnam etc., where electrician work is highly valued in construction industry. These countries have a huge population that lives in remote areas without electricity supply which makes them dependent on diesel generators for power supply leading to increased use of fish tapes during electrical repairs at homes or industrial units thereby boosting market growth across regions significantly over the coming years.

Regional Analysis:

North America dominated the global fish tape market in terms of revenue with a share of over 40.0% in 2017. This is attributed to the presence of major players such as 3M and Avery Denison, which manufactures steel tape and fiberglass tapes, respectively. The U.S.

Asia Pacific is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period owing to rapid development taking place across various industries in countries such as China, India, Japan etc.; thus leading to increased demand from end-use industries such as construction & infrastructure (bridges), manufacturing (factories), transportation & logistics (ports) among others).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for fish tapes in the construction and electrical industries
  • Rising popularity of fiberglass fish tapes over traditional metal ones
  • Growing number of innovative products being launched in the market
  • Proliferation of online retail platforms that offer a wide variety of fish tapes at competitive prices
  • Increasing awareness about the benefits of using fish tapes among consumers
