Market Drivers & Challenges

Growth Indicators

The Europe steel bridge market is riding on the back of mechanical properties of steel as steel does not warp, split, crack or creep and is an isotropic material, which means it has the same dimensional properties in all directions. Since there is no "grain," the strength of steel is the same in all loading directions. Along with that, steel is light in weight and require less costly equipment to lift the material which can be used on construction sites. Such factors make it highly preferred construction material for bridges over conventionally used material such as concrete. Additionally, steel offers cost effectiveness over a long span of time as they need low maintenance, have longer life as compared to other types of bridges and they do not need to be replaced as frequently.

The construction of the steel bridges takes less time in comparison to concrete bridges which results into economic and safety benefits along with the less time consuming duration of steel bridge construction that minimizes the disruption of public mobility.

Additionally, steel from a dismantle bridge can be used again for another project because steel is fully recyclable and does not lose its properties upon being recycled. These factors are also believed to aid the Europe steel bridge market to grow in the near future.


Presence of cheaper alternatives with less initial manufacturing cost, presence of various alternatives in the market such as concrete are expected to slow down the growth of the steel bridge market in Europe region. Further, the cost constraints attached to the manufacturing and construction along with the need for high skilled labor might result in decreased demand for the steel bridges in the future.

Competitive Landscape

Some of the affluent industry leaders in the Europe steel bridge market are VINCI, Bechtel Corporation, Hochtief AG, Skanska, Balfour Beatty, Bouygues Construction, Ferrovial, Fluor Corporation and AECOM.

WWF France and Bouygues Construction are now renewing their partnership for the period 2017-2020 to pursue the development of sustainable urban projects in France at neighborhood level and committing to more responsible timber supply in order to reduce the footprint on forests.

Moreover, other key and niche players are working towards the expansion of product portfolio along with investing in research and development activities to provide innovative and advanced technologies to address the changing industry demands in order to gain competitive edge in the Europe steel bridge market.
