Bolts Market

Bolts Market is expected to be Flourished by Rising Demand from Construction Industry

Bolts are threaded fasteners that are used to join two or more materials or objects together by passing the bolt through holes in each material or object and fastened by a threaded nut that is screwed onto the threaded end of the bolt. They are commonly used in various industries such as construction, automotive, ships, aircrafts, railway wagons, and industrial machinery among others. In the construction industry, bolts are extensively used for joining and assembling of structural steel framing, trusses, stairs, handrails, ductwork, piping, and mechanical equipment. The global construction industry has been growing rapidly over the past few years driven by increasing infrastructure investments across both developing and developed economies. This rising demand from the construction sector is expected to drive the global bolts market over the forecast period.

The global bolts market is estimated to be valued at US$ 9.56 Bn in 2024 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 18% over the forecast period 2024 to 2031, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.

Market Dynamics:

One of the major drivers propelling the growth of the bolts market is the rising demand from the construction industry as mentioned earlier. According to the Global Construction 2030 report by Global Construction Perspectives and Oxford Economics, the worldwide construction output is projected to grow by 85% to US$ 15.5 trillion by 2030. This rising construction activities around the world will consistently drive the demand for bolts for assembling and joining structural components in various construction projects. Additionally, growing infrastructure investments by various governments to develop roads & highways, rails, bridges, commercial buildings, hospitals will further complement the market growth over the forecast period.

However, fluctuations in raw material prices may negatively impact the profit margins of bolts manufacturers. Bolts are made of steel and other metals whose prices fluctuate frequently depending on global trade wars, changing economies, supply & demand forces. Any increase in raw material costs puts an upward pressure on bolts prices, consequently affecting its sales.
