Market Overview:

The global locking nuts market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The growth in the market can be attributed to the increasing demand for locking nuts in construction, power generation, transportation, and other applications. Metal nuts are expected to dominate the global locking nuts market during the forecast period owing to their high strength and durability. However, plastic nuts are projected to grow at a higher CAGR than metal nuts during the forecast period as they offer several advantages such as corrosion resistance and lightweight. Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing region for the global lockingnuts market duringthe forecastperioddue tothedemandfrom emerging economies such as China and India.

Global Locking Nuts Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A locking nut (or locking bolt) is a nut with one or more tabs that protrude outwards. When the nut is tightened, these tabs dig into the surface of the material surrounding it, preventing it from loosening. This is particularly useful in applications where vibration or rotation could loosen the nut otherwise. Locking nuts are often used in conjunction with bolts, to ensure that they remain securely fastened together.

Metal Nuts:

Metal Nuts are used in various applications such as fastening, machine coupling and locking nuts. They are available in two forms including plastic coated and plain metal. The product is manufactured using steel, alloy metals or aluminum which acts as a key factor driving the market growth. In addition, increasing demand for metal nuts from the construction sector is expected to fuel its demand over the forecast period.

Plastic Nuts:

Plastic nuts and bolts are manufactured using plastic resin, which is a non-corrosive material. Plastic nuts & bolts have numerous advantages over metal counterparts. These include resistance to rusting, easier maintenance, lightweight (as compared to metal), higher strength (metal: 20% plastic: 80%), etc. The most important factor that influences the locking nut market is the ease of use in terms of installation and removal as well as their cost effectiveness.

Application Insights:

The construction application segment led the global locking nuts market in 2017. The growth can be attributed to increasing urbanization and industrial development in emerging economies including China, India, Brazil and Mexico. In addition, the rising demand for high-quality steel products for construction activities is expected to drive the product demand over the forecast period.

The power generation application segment accounted for a significant share of 21% in terms of revenue on account of growing investments by governments across various countries to develop hydroelectricity projects and promote renewable energy sources such as wind and solar energy owing to initiatives taken by governments across various regions toward sustainable development goals. This is anticipated to further increase investment spending on coal-fired power plants which are majorly used throughout Asia Pacific region thereby driving product demand over next seven years or so.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has been witnessing rapid growth in infrastructure development, which is driving demand from construction application. In addition, rising disposable income of consumers and increasing population are likely to contribute towards industry growth over the next eight years.

Europe was valued at USD X billion in 2017 owing to growing construction activities coupled with stringent regulations for safety purposes that have driven product demand across Europe countries including Germany, France, Italy and U.K., among others.

North America accounted for a significant share of global revenue due to increased spending on industrial facilities by companies including Boeing Co., General Electric Co.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand from the automotive and aerospace industries
  • Growing popularity of locking nuts in construction and engineering applications
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of using locking nuts over conventional fasteners
  • Technological advancements that have led to the development of new and innovative locking nut designs
  • The increasing use of composite materials in manufacturing, which has created a need for high-quality locking nuts
