The global bolts market size was valued at $46,854.3 million in 2020, and is projected to reach $81,174.7 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.7% from 2021 to 2030. Bolts are a type of threaded fastener which are used to hold objects in their position. Bolts typically consist of a head and a cylindrical body with threads either throughout or along a portion of its length.  

The rising number of construction activities across the globe has fueled the use of steel construction components, thereby increasing the use of metal fasteners as they are extensively used for joining various steel components. Properties of bolts such as high shear strength and ability of bolted joints to reduce temperature stresses in steel connections, fuels the use of bolts in the construction industry. In addition, bolts are used in automotive industry for connecting various components of engine, drivetrain and body panels. Thus, rapid growth of automotive industry in developing countries has boosted the demand for bolts market. 


Increasing population in developing economies such as India, China, Mexico, Brazil, and others has resulted in rapid urbanization. According to the United Nations (UN), around 68% of the world population is expected to live in urban areas by 2050. This rapid urbanization will increase the demand for infrastructure such as metro rails and airport, thereby boosting the construction industry. For instance, in India, 10 cities have an operational metro rail systems as of 2020, and 15 more cities are planned to have an operational metro rail system in the next few years. This rapid increase in construction activities is expected to increase the demand for bolts. Furthermore, the automotive industry in developing countries witnesses rapid growth. For instance, China has emerged as the world’s largest automotive market in the last few years and Mexico is emerging as an automotive manufacturing hub in the Latin America region. However, factors such as fluctuation in prices of raw materials such as steel and increase in energy prices can hinder the bolts market growth. 

The novel coronavirus has 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 has now become a significant threat to global trade, economy, and finance. The COVID-19 pandemic has halted the production of many products in the bolt business due to the lockdown. Furthermore, the number of COVID-19 cases are expected to reduce in the near future as the vaccine for COVID-19 is introduced in the market. This has led to the reopening of bolt manufacturing companies at their full-scale capacities. This will help the market to recover by the start of 2022. After COVID-19 infection cases begin to decline, bolt manufacturers must focus on protecting their staff, operations, and supply networks to respond to urgent emergencies and establish new methods of working.

Furthermore, growth of manufacturing industry is anticipated to increase the use of bolts as they are used for joining various manufacturing assemblies and machineries. In addition, growth of aviation industry fueled by increasing passenger air traffic, is anticipated to boost the use of bolts in aerospace industry.
