Market Dynamics

In addition to traffic management, barrier systems also play a vital role in property management as it is effective in preventing unwarranted access to private properties. Thus, barrier systems are extensively used on roads as well as in other facilities such as airports, railways, and commercial buildings. Furthermore, the availability of barrier systems in metals such as steel, tungsten, and aluminum whereas, and in non-metals such as plastic, wood, and concrete, further increase its usability.

The availability of barrier systems in various systems further increase the cost efficiency and safety of various facilities. For instance, the use of flexible crash barriers significantly reduces the crash impact thereby, providing a safer environment for vehicle occupants. And rigid barriers can be used for enhancing safety of railways. In addition, drop arms are extensively used for traffic management in facilities such as toll booths and parking lots. These factors positively influence the barrier systems market growth. 

Emerging economies such as India and China are focusing on the development of infrastructure, thereby, creating a demand for barrier systems. In addition, the expansion of the real estate market is also contributing toward the growth of the fencing barrier market. Furthermore, technological advancements in barrier systems have significantly increased its usability. For instance, technologies such as biometric systems are equipped with drop arms that have a vast application in parking areas and automatic bollards that are operated via an automated control panel, which is used on pedestrian footpaths, entrance of commercial buildings, and high security applications. 

Barrier Systems Market by Device type

The rising awareness regarding road safety has fueled the demand for barrier systems that that provide additional crash protection. For instance, in 2022, a rolling barrier guardrail system was installed as a pilot project on the Nahan to Kumarhatti section of NH 907A in Himachal Pradesh. In addition, major manufacturers of automated barriers and bollards components offer a wide range of products and services, to meet the customer needs. They constantly innovate their offerings to stay competitive in the market. For instance, in October 2021, CAME, a company involved in manufacturing security products, introduced SYGMA 4, a new centralized access control management system for retractable bollards. This system is expected to ease the management of retractable bollards.

The novel coronavirus had rapidly spread across various countries and regions, causing an enormous impact on the lives of people and the overall community. It began as a human health condition and later became a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic halted the production of many components of barrier systems due to lockdown. The economic slowdown initially resulted in reduced spending on various building residential and non-residential building construction projects. However, owing to the introduction of various vaccines, the severity of COVID-19 pandemic has significantly reduced. As of mid-2022, the number of COVID-19 cases have diminished significantly. This has led to full-fledged reopening of barrier systems manufacturing companies at their full-scale capacities. Furthermore, it has been more than two years since the outbreak of this pandemic, and many companies have already shown notable signs of recovery.
