Sales Analysis of Lifting Accessories (2017-2021) Vs. Market Outlook (2022-2032)

Traditionally, lifting accessories were widely used in the construction and logistics & transportation sectors. However, they have now become a key component in power & energy, automotive, and oil & gas industries. Lifting accessories are highly preferred to solve the difficulty of lifting and moving heavy cargo and goods that are transported through containers.

Lifting accessory demand is projected to increase with the rise of the construction lifting equipment market. It is anticipated that lifting accessories will be used for logistics and transportation at a significant scale. The industrial lifting equipment market is another reason why sales in the industrial lifting accessories market are positively growing. Over the forecast period, demand from the logistics and transportation sector is likely to witness significant growth.

The product's adaptability and lack of substitute products are likely to provide a promising stance to manufacturers of lifting equipment and accessories. Regulations imposed on lifting operations are also projected to increase the demand for lifting accessories in the years ahead.

According to the recent analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, utilization of lifting accessories witnessed a growth rate of 1.1% from 2017 to 2021.

Lifting hooks accounted for the highest market share of lifting accessories at approximately 33.2% in 2021. Accelerating demand for portable industrial lifting equipment from the aftermarket sales channel in the construction end-use sector is expected to be witnessed over the decade, especially in North America and Europe.

Surging utilization of industrial lifting devices with a capacity of up to 5 tons in the aforementioned regions is projected to create an absolute $ opportunity of US$ 117.8 Mn over the forecast period.

Furthermore, surging use of shank hook, sockets, and hook-pulleys in the logistics and transportation sector as a cost-effective choice is likely to drive the growth of the market throughout 2022-2032.

Over the forecast period, demand for sockets is predicted to increase at a CAGR of 4.8%, with the overall lifting accessories market rising at 5.8% CAGR.

What Market Factors are Expected to Drive Demand for Lifting Accessories?

“Increasing Adoption of Robotics & Automation in Lifting Accessories”

Robotics and automation systems have helped businesses grow with higher cost-efficiency. This advanced technology assists businesses in smooth order picking, real-time picking, and other processes. One of the biggest advantages of adopting automation is that the machines can be reprogrammed according to the needs of the company.

Different types of software such as aerial work platforms are being used by lifting and rigging companies to increase the efficiency of industrial lifting equipment.

Heavy lifting needs to be precise and accurate, subsequently increasing the sales of aerial work platforms, which can be ensured by the adoption of automation. This helps in reducing the number of people working, through which, companies can also reduce their operating costs.

A lot of damage is associated with human error, and, as such, higher robotic adoption has minimized the rate of damage to goods. Owing to the aforementioned factors, the sales of lifting accessories are slated to witness higher growth prospects in the year ahead.

“Regulations on Reduction of Replacement Period Driving Sales of Lifting Accessories”

Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER) are for a variety of areas, such as lifting equipment brands and businesses using industrial lifting equipment. These regulations include the burden imposed by the machines. Regulations are expected to increase the credibility of companies and products, as those operating in the market need to obtain a variety of certificates.

Under these regulations, businesses operating in this space are required to inspect their lifting equipment every six months or annually. Other laws also exist, such as the Health and Safety at Work Act, Working at Height Regulations, and many more.

This factor is expected to reduce the turnaround time, which will facilitate the demand growth for lifting accessories across prominent regional markets.

“Rising Focus on Customization of Lifting Accessories”

Based on the Fact.MR study, requirements of the manufacturing sector are highly selective and require additional customization to operate properly. Lifting accessories required in the cargo industry may differ in size or specifications as compared to the oil & gas industry.

Customers require specific machines with a particular lifting capacity, size, etc. Manufacturers are thus producing customized products that can specifically fulfill the demand of their respective clients.

Industrial lifting equipment manufacturers provide proper customer services and leverage their strategy towards maximum customer satisfaction. They fill the gap of demand by producing customized lifting accessories such as industrial lifting hooks and hoists, on the back of rising demand for cranes as well as demand for forklifts.

All in all, client-personalized lifting accessories will drive this market to new heights over the coming years.

What Might Dent Demand Growth of Lifting Accessories?

“Low Safety of Lifting Accessories an Issue”

Safety should always be a priority in any work environment, especially when it comes to heavy loads. Construction lifting straps offer flexibility, strength, and product support for the lifting of high-value loads that require optimal efficiency and safety.

Most accessories such as industrial lifting hooks get damaged due to various reasons; alloy chain slings are more susceptible to corrosion, heat damage, cracking, etc. A qualified worker can easily diagnose and identify problems that threaten the strength of the bullet unit during a visual inspection.

Assets need to be discarded when they fail the inspection process and stored somewhere so that they aren’t used. When chains are misused they can be damaged if not maintained properly. When purchasing lifting accessories, the material used in the production of these accessories must be properly tested.

OSHA requires that all industrial lifting equipment be tested before use. This leads to a high volume of replacement of lifting accessories, which thereby drives lifting accessories demand in parallel.
