Fiberglass ladders are non-conductive ladders which are used for roofing and other outdoor activity. A fiberglass ladder does not bend easily under normal pressure as they are not lightweight unlike an aluminum ladder. These ladders are heat resistant and does not lose its strength when it gets hot due to temperature and humidity. The fiberglass ladder is generally used as a step ladder instead of an extension ladder. Fiberglass ladders are usually referred to as glass-reinforced plastic (GRP) ladders.
Rising residential and commercial construction activity is expected to fuel the demand for fiberglass ladders over the forecast period. Increasing consumer spending coupled with economic growth is resulting in increasing residential and commercial construction activities. Construction activities are increasing in the Middle East, Africa, and APAC region due to increasing number of initiatives by governments to promote tourism. Growing need of office spaces across the globe is also surging the demand for fiberglass ladders. Fiberglass ladders are durable due to their weather- and rust resistant character. Fiberglass ladders are used for painting and decoration as they are lightweight and can easily be moved from one place to another. Manufacturing companies are expanding their operation and production capacities, resulting in increasing demand for storage and logistics of raw materials and finished goods.
