Suspended scaffolds are widely used in the construction and maintenance activities around the world. Owing to the inflow of domestic and international investments in the infrastructural activities of almost every country, the demand for suspended scaffolds is expected to prominently stay fueled by these major factors. As per OSHA (Occupational Safety and Health Administration), suspended scaffolds are defined as “suspension scaffold contains one or more platforms suspended by ropes or other non-rigid means from an overhead structure”. The suspended scaffolds are noted to be overhung prominently by a rope/cable but the ones overhung with the help of wheels are also noted to be present in the market. Not all suspended scaffolds are adjustable and some manufacturers have introduced stationary suspended scaffolds in their product offering mainly aiming towards the roof and bridge construction applications.
Suspended scaffolds have been recently introduced in the scaffolding market which is significantly dominated by the supported scaffolds. The suspended scaffolds involving a certain amount of higher risk than the supported scaffolds, it has been under the scrutiny of several safety authorities around the world.
Suspended Scaffolds Market: Dynamics
With the construction sector being one of the parent markets for suspended scaffolds, a rise in the demand has been observed for the same. The limited horizontal area available for the geographical growth of a city compels the private and public developers to shift towards the vertical growth, for instance, building high rise structures. Moreover, the maintenance and repair industry is also witnessing a robust growth around the world. Increasing use of glass and similar products in the exterior of these structures also contributes to the growing demand for suspended scaffolds used for cleaning and periodic inspection purposes. The scope of maintenance and repair activities also extends to the preservation and restoration of monuments.
The higher level of risk involved in the use of suspended scaffolds limits its growth in the market. Furthermore, due to its technology being relatively more advanced than its conventional counterparts, the rate of adoption has been slightly slow. Several authorities mandate that skilled manpower should be employed while using suspended scaffolds. Limitation on these factors slows down the growth of suspended scaffolds in developing regions such as Latin America.
Responding to the trends, the manufacturers are also noted to provide the suspended scaffolds on rental basis. This has spurred the growth in the number of suppliers stocking the product to satisfy the local demand for suspended scaffolds. A number of manufacturers of suspended scaffolds have been also offering added features such as attaching a communication device on the platform, add-ons such as ladder are also provided. The utmost concern is given to increase the safety of workers and the remaining features are considered to add value to the product.
