Directional Blocks Market – Dynamics           

Growth in wire rope industry will drive the demand for directional blocks market

Expansion in infrastructure and industrial sectors across the globe is expected to drive the demand for wire ropes across the world. Rise in end-use applications such as marine, construction, and industrial is projected to be a key factor driving the market. Construction cranes use directional blocks to direct the wire rope or provide axial support to the load. Directional blocks are used in lifting products such as overhead cranes and manual wire rope lifting.

Fluctuation in raw material prices may adversely impact directional blocks market

The wire rope sheaves market is highly susceptible to fluctuation in prices of raw materials, as almost 95% of wire rope sheaves constitute iron or steel. These prices are fluctuated on the basis of shipping costs, market maturity, energy costs, and supply demand scenario. Thus, volatility in prices of raw materials may adversely impact the purchasing decision of wire rope sheaves, since these are heavy duty products which does not easily tend to fail as these products are tested while manufacturing to almost 1.5 – 2 times its rating capacity.
