Global Trench Shields Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A trench shield is a large, rectangular piece of metal or wood that is used to protect workers from objects that may fall from above, such as chunks of concrete or rebar. They are also used to protect workers from explosions. Trench shields are often used in construction and demolition work.

Steel Trench Shield:

Steel trench shield is a robust and flexible protective device used to protect personnel from hand-to-hand contact with electric shock hazards. It can also be used as an extension to the body for protection against electrical or magnetic fields. The product is manufactured using high strength steel that has been galvanized, which provides additional protection against moisture and corrosion.

Aluminum Trench Shield:

Aluminum Trench shield is a portable and flexible protective device that can be easily deployed to protect workers from the hazards present in trenching operations. It helps in providing protection against electrocution, falling objects, body contact, and other forms of direct exposure. Aluminum Trench Shield has gained wide acceptance globally as an effective safety product for use during trenching operations.

Application Insights:

Building construction was the largest application segment in 2017 and will continue to be so over the forecast period. The rising demand for steel products including building materials is expected to drive the global market over the coming years. Trench shields are widely used in laying pipes or wires as they offer protection from electric shocks, falling objects, and other debris.

The others application segment includes working at height, on farms & ranches, on construction sites etc. In this segment, aluminum trench shields are preferred as they do not rust and require less maintenance than steel counterparts. However, building construction is likely to remain dominant throughout the forecast period owing to its high penetration rate across various regions coupled with a growing population that requires more housing facilities at an accelerated pace is expected to drive product demand over next seven years or so  in near future for new house constructions only (2017-2030).

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific is expected to be the fastest-growing regional market with a CAGR of XX% from 2018 to 2030 owing to increasing investments in construction activities and rapid urbanization in the region. In addition, growing industrialization and advancements in technology are also expected to drive product demand over the forecast period.

The Europe market was valued at USD X million in 2017 and is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period on account of rising product demand for use in various applications including building construction, laying pipes or wires, others.

North America accounted for a major share within this industry on account of presence of prominent players operating within U.S.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for trench shields in the construction industry as a result of growing infrastructure development activities across the globe.
  • Rising awareness about the benefits of using trench shields among contractors, which is expected to boost demand for trench shields in the near future.
  • Growing use of trench shields in mining and other industrial applications owing to their superior features and benefits over traditional methods of excavation.
  • Technological advancements in trench shield manufacturing that are making these products more efficient and user-friendly, thereby driving their adoption across various end-use industries.
  • Stringent safety regulations pertaining to excavation work that mandate the use of trenches shields, which is likely to fuel market growth over the next few years
