Manhole Covers Market - Overview

Manhole covers or pit lids or access covers are used to close the openings of manholes or pits in order to prevent people and unwanted materials from falling into manholes and to avoid people from injuring themselves. Manhole covers are manufactured in a variety of shapes such as circles, rectangles, etc.. Materials that are used for manufacturing manhole covers include metals (cast iron, ductile iron, and steel), concrete (conventional concrete and steel fiber reinforced concrete), and composites (FRP/GRP and others). Metal and concrete are the most widely used materials for making manhole covers. However, these traditionally used types are being widely replaced by composite manhole covers, which are the emerging type of manhole covers across the world.

Based on product, the global manhole covers market has been segmented into metal covers, concrete covers, and composite covers.Metal covers were the earliest type of manhole covers used.

Manhole covers made from metals are heavy, bulky, and result in a number of occupational injuries of personnel involved in the installation and repair of these covers.Moreover, metal covers are often stolen in a lot of areas and sold for a profit.

They were replaced by concrete covers, which addressed the issue of theft.However, they failed to reduce the incidence of occupational injuries.

Composite covers address both of these problems. They are light in weight, have superior strength, and a high strength-to-weight ratio. Composite covers are made from recycled and reinforced resins that have a zero scrap value and are far less likely to be stolen as compared to metal covers. The composite covers segment is estimated to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period.

In terms of application, the global manhole covers market has been segmented into municipal, industrial facilities, commercial facilities, utility pits, and others.Municipal is likely to be a prominent segment of the manhole covers market.
