Steel Bridge Market Overview

Steel is a highly preferred construction material for bridges over other conventionally used construction materials such as concrete as it is light in weight, requires less costly equipment to lift the material and less construction time required. Steel bridges are designed to complement many other construction materials such as HPC and other advanced composite materials to provide structures with superior durability and extended life span. In addition to this, the solutions provided by the steel makers for construction of bridges is expected to drive the growth of the steel bridge market.

The steel industry is worth USD 900 billion a year. World steel represents more than 160 steel makers accounting for 85% of the global output. Construction company is the largest consumer accounting for approximately 50% of the total world steel consumption. There are major steel bridges in the world such as Golden Gate Bridge, San Francisco; Poute Vecchio, Florence; Magdeburg Water Bridge, Germany; Sydney Harbour Bridge, Australia; Brooklyn Bridge, New York etc. which are living examples of the durability and mechanical strength of steel bridges.

Market Size and Forecast

Steel is highly resistant to extreme environmental conditions and can withstand natural disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes. It does not warp, split, crack or creep and it is an isotropic material which makes it highly preferred construction material for bridges over conventionally used materials such as concrete which is expected to boost the growth of the steel bridge market.

The steel bridge market is anticipated to record a CAGR of around 4% during the forecast period i.e. 2019-2027. The market is segmented by kind of traffic carried into road bridges, railway bridges and road cum rail bridges, out of which, the road bridges segment is anticipated to have substantial growth on account of increasing demand for vehicles and increasing global connectivity between small islands and cities. CLICK TO DOWNLOAD FREE SAMPLE

Growth Drivers

Durability and adaptability

Steel is highly resistant to extreme environmental conditions and can withstand natural disasters such as hurricanes and earthquakes. Durability and adaptability of steel is expected to boost the growth of the steel bridge market.

Mechanical strength

Steel does not warp, split, crack or creep and it is an isotropic material which makes it highly preferred construction material for bridges over conventionally used materials such as concrete. Mechanical strength of steel is expected to boost the growth of the steel bridge market.

Less construction time

The less construction time of steel bridges in comparison to construction of other material bridges such as concrete bridges minimizes the disruption of public mobility which is expected to boost the growth of the steel bridge market.

Cost effectiveness

Steel bridges offer cost effectiveness as compared to other types of bridges and have longer life span. The maintenance cost of steel bridges is also low in the long run and need not be replaced frequently. Cost effectiveness of steel bridges is expected to boost the growth of the market.

Increasing construction solutions

Increasing construction solutions provided by the steel makers for bridges is expected to boost the growth of the steel bridge market.

Restraints

High initial cost of construction

Though the maintenance cost of steel bridges is low, the initial cost of construction is high which is expected to impede the growth of the market.

Availability of other materials

Availability of other materials for construction of bridge such as concrete is expected to dampen the growth of the market.

Requirement of highly skilled labor

To construct steel bridges, highly skilled welders and workers are required as comparison to the construction of concrete bridges which is expected to hamper the growth of the steel bridge market.
