Light Tower Market to Expand 1.6X by 2030; Reduced Construction Activities during COVID-19 Pandemic Impeding Market Growth

by Team Fact.MR

In recent years, increasing popularity of solar light towers in North America and Europe has been significantly influencing the growth of the light tower market. Since 2017, oil prices have recovered to above US$ 70 per barrel from the previous low of US$ 40 per barrel, and have shown signs of steady improvement. This, coupled with major production cuts from OPEC countries, has made the oil & gas industry an under-supplied market, creating even more demand for oil production. With increasing investments in the oil & gas industry, demand for light towers is set to rise over the coming years.

Installation of solar light towers and surge in the number of end-use industry platforms are opening up new avenues for the light tower market. According to a new Fact.MR study, the light tower market is poised to expand at a value CAGR of nearly 5% and account for revenue worth US$ 2 Bn by 2030-end.
