Global Steel Wire Rope and Plastic Rope Market: Notable Development

  • June 2017: Agreement between PSC Crane and Rigging from Piqua signed for supply of Plasma synthetic rope slings. The slings, as a lifting and lowering solution, are seen as an evolutionary development in the world of rope – 7 times lighter than wire ropes and 1/2x the size of a round one. These are expected to stiffen the competition for steel wire ropes and plastic ropes market in the coming years.
  • April 2018: Samson, through its partnership with Baitra, increased its distribution capacity in Spain; it increased facility size by a factor of 6. This might be read as the partners’ foray into untapped territory created by an increase in demand.
  • March 2019: Turbolite M, an 8 strand compacted hybrid hoist rope with high strength and fatigue resistance, developed which is helping break new grounds in underground mining.
  • FRES: Developed by National Oilwell Varco, Fibre Rope Extension System (FRES) can help increase lifting capacity of existing steel rope cranes for deep-water operations

Some of the most prominent competitors operating in the competitive landscape of global steel wire rope and plastic rope market include –

  • WireCo World Group Inc
  • Bekaert SA
  • Tuefelberger Holding AG
  • Cortland Limited
  • DSR
  • Samson Rope
  • Usha Martin
  • Jiangsu Langshan
  • Marlow Ropes Ltd

Current focus for most companies to chart growth in the global steel wire ropes and plastic ropes market is through improving efficiency and shelf life. In order to capture opportunities, it is important to focus on process improvement and financial flexibility to invest in the right kind of strategies.

Global Steel Wire Rope and Plastic Rope Market:  Key trends

A move for steel sheaves over plastic ones in order to increase life of steel wire ropes is seen as driving adoption of the ropes. Here, it is important to note that good steel comes at a higher price than conventional steel, thereby impacting end-use industries negatively but nonetheless, opening gates to a more durability.

Increase in demand for steel wire ropes and plastic ropes from industries such as marine and fishing, mining, industrial and crane end-use, oil and gas, sports and leisure, and construction is expected for sheer virtue of the ropes being lightweight and sturdy apart from having a low specific gravity and superior elasticity. Besides, these have a high resistance to corrosion and can handle bending stresses exceptionally well.

Global Steel Wire Rope and Plastic Rope Market: Drivers

Owing to excellent impact resistance, flexibility, load-bearing capacity, and lifespan, a swift adoption of steel wire ropes and plastic ropes by industries such as mining and industrial and crane end-use is noted.

Plastic ropes are gaining better foothold, especially in cranes industry due to their ability to withstand harsh conditions during handling, installation and maintenance.
