Steel Wire Rope & Plastic Rope Markets, 2024 by Type of Lay (Regular Lay, Lang Lay), Material Type (PP, PET, Nylon, HMPE, Specialty Fibers) -


The "Steel Wire Rope & Plastic Rope Market by Type of Lay (Regular Lay, Lang Lay), Material Type (PP, PET, Nylon, HMPE, Specialty Fibers), Application (Marine & Fishing, Sports & Leisure, Oil & Gas, Industrial & Crane) & Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The steel wire ropes & plastic ropes market size is estimated to grow from USD 11.3 billion in 2019 to reach USD 14.5 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.0%.

Steel wire ropes and plastic ropes are two categories of rope made from different materials and have a different construction. The steel wire rope design consists of multiple steel wires that form individual strands laid in a helical pattern around a core. This structure provides strength, flexibility, abrasion resistance, fatigue resistance, and the ability to handle bending stresses.

Four factors determine the properties and application of steel wire ropes, which include its construction, coating, core, and type of lay. A plastic rope is a bundle of flexible synthetic fibers that are braided or twisted together to enhance its length and tensile strength. Plastic ropes are made of synthetic fibers, such as nylon, polyester, HMPE, and polypropylene. They provide properties such as high strength, durability, low weight, and corrosion resistance.

The steel wire ropes & plastic ropes market is growing due to the increasing demand from marine & fishing, industrial & crane, and mining applications.

The key players in the market include WireCo WorldGroup Inc. (US), Bekaert SA (Belgium), Tuefelberger Holding AG (Austria), Cortland Limited (US), DSR (South Korea), Samson Rope (US), Usha Martin (India), Samson Ropes Technologies Inc. (US), Jiangsu Langshan (China), and Marlow Ropes Ltd. (UK).

The strategies undertaken by these market players include new product development, expansion, agreement, and acquisition.
