Report Description

Global Light Towers Market was valued at US$ xx billion in 2020 and is anticipated to reach US$ xx billion by 2027 displaying a CAGR of xx% over the forecast period (2021-2027). Light towers are towable, mobile equipment equipped with one or more high power electric lamps with telescopic mast assembly. The mast may be fixed or adjustable in its operations, which is attached to a trailer consisting of a generator set to power the light panels. Light towers are used for outdoor remote operations or locations that are difficult to connect with the main power grid. These operations involve construction activity (remote as well as general), oil & gas industry operations, mining operation, and emergency and rescue operation. Being mobile and portable, light towers can be moved easily from one location to another in an onsite operation. Apart from these industrial applications, light towers can also be used to illuminate highly remote and distant villages. The growth of Light Towers Market expanded significantly over recent years, underpinned by increasing investment in the construction and oil & gas sectors, innovative technology adoption for energy-efficient lightings, and their proven reliability, efficiency, and easy installation techniques for many end user activities. For instance, as per IEA, longer-term drivers of growth will continue to push up oil demand. As a result, by 2026, global oil consumption is projected to reach 104.1 mb/d. This would represent an increase of 4.4 mb/d from 2019 levels.

Other factor driving the growth of the Light Towers Market globally is rising emphasis on the reduction of energy bill along with energy-saving potential through digitalization which is set to complement the light tower installation globally.

Generac Power Systems, Terex Corporation, Atlas Copco, Doosan Portable Power, Wacker Neuson etc. are some of the prominent players operating in the Global Light Towers Market. Several M&As along with partnerships have been undertaken by these players to facilitate countries with more innovative Light Towers applications.
