“High strength, low weight, and safety features of synthetic ropes are expected to drive the market during the forecast period.”
The synthetic ropes market is projected to witness a CAGR of 5.9% from 2016 to reach a market size of USD 1.69 billion by 2021. The growth of the market is attributed to the excellent strength of synthetic ropes and their low weight. Another prime driver for the market is the safety aspects of synthetic ropes, when used under harsh operational conditions.
“Marine & fishing is projected to remain the largest end-use industry of synthetic ropes during the forecast period.”
The marine industry uses synthetic ropes on a large scale. Due to the use of these ropes, marine mooring lines, ship-assist ropes, inland towing lines, and hoisting lines become stronger, lighter, more buoyant, and less susceptible to abrasion. Moreover, the emergence of marine renewable energy (MRE) has become a major contributor to the rise in the use of synthetic ropes in the marine & fishing industry.
“North America to remain the largest regional segment in the synthetic ropes market during the forecast period”
The synthetic ropes market in North America is well established and the region has a vast distribution network of synthetic ropes. Canada and Mexico are projected to drive the market in the region owing to the large number of offshore oil & gas reserves that may use synthetic ropes instead of the heavy steel wire ropes. Mexico is projected to witness the highest CAGR in the North American market during the forecast period.
