Market Outlook:

The Americas Utility Poles Market was valued at USD 13,360.7 Million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 19,171.7 Million by 2027 expanding at a CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period, 2020-2027. Utility pole is a post or column used to support various overhead powerlines, wires, and several instruments such as transformers, conductors, cable, for transmission and distribution of electricity. Utility poles are also used as street lights poles. It is also refereed as electric pole, telegraph pole, power pole, telephone pole as per its application. Utility poles are also used for carrying high voltage power lines and sub transmission lines between substations and power stations, it also carries the distribution lines which distribute low voltage power to customers. Utility poles are made up of different materials such as wood, steel, concrete, and composite. Wood is used since decades as a most preferred raw material for construction of utility poles. Conversely, steel and composite is widely accepted material for constructing utility poles. Steel, concrete and composite are stronger and more durable than wood, but these material account for higher cost. The maintenance of steel poles is very less than compared to others.

Utility poles are of various different sizes, diameters, and thickness. Some poles are hollow from inside while some are dense, the poles size is chosen according to its application and areas where it is going to be installed. Poles which are less than or upto 40 ft, and are between 40 to 70 ft are most widely used poles. These poles are used for electricity distribution, transmission, and street lightning application.

Americas Utility Poles Market Key Takeaways
