The drop arm market is experiencing significant growth and will expand considerably in the next few years. Drop arm barriers are designed to control traffic and provide an anti-ram obstacle to protect from potential vehicular threats.

They are used for collection of tolls and parking charges on roads and in parking spaces. They significantly improve the efficiency of movement of traffic, while providing safety to on ground working personnel. Collection of tools and security checks are the major functions of drop arm barriers. Drop arm barriers can be integrated with various technologies, which make them easy to operate and capable of performing quick movements. These barriers are used to restrict access to special establishments with high security requirements. Major players in the drop arm industry are focusing on development of more durable and economical drop arms. 


Drop arm barriers consist of a bean which moves in a vertical arc movement to permit and restrict the movement of traffic. They can be operated using push buttons, remote controls, radio frequency identification (RFID) tags, loop detectors, and other control devices. In addition, the use of plastic drop arm barriers reduces the risk of damage to vehicles in case of crashes. The availability of drop arms in a wide range of sizes makes them applicable in various situations. The use of drop arm barriers has significantly increased the efficiency of traffic management in malls, amusement parks, highways, airports, and other establishments. 

COVID-19 Impact analysis

  • The COVID-19 pandemic caused a halt in the production of various products in the drop-arm industry, owing to global lockdown. This has hampered the growth of drop arm market in the last few months and is likely to continue through 2022.
  • The major demand for drop arm barriers was previously noticed in countries including the U.S., Germany, Italy, the UK, and China, which are negatively affected by the spread of the coronavirus, thereby declining the demand for drop arms.
  • Further, potential impact of the lockdown is currently vague and financial recovery of companies is totally based on their cash reserves. Drop arm barrier manufacturers can afford a full lockdown only for a few months, after which the players have to modify their investment plans. For instance, various players in the market halted their production activities for several weeks to reduce their expenses. On the contrary, a few players adopted employee lay-offs to sustain themselves during the COVID-19 health crisis.
  • Drop arm manufacturers are expected to focus on protecting their workforce, operations, and supply chains to respond to immediate crises and find new ways of working after COVID-19. For instance, provision of sanitizers, maintaining social distancing, as well as ensuring the vaccination of every employee in the company can assist in promoting the health & safety of the workforce. 
  • The restrictions laid on public gatherings by governments across the globe has significantly reduced the number of people visiting corporate offices, shopping malls, and amusement parks, thereby decreasing the demand for drop arm barriers. 
  • COVID-19 has negatively affected the financial performance of many countries, thereby reducing their investments on infrastructural projects and reducing the demand for drop arm barrier systems for toll collection applications. 

Top Impacting Factors

Increase in private–public partnerships (PPPs) to promote infrastructural development is one of the important driving factors for the drop arm market, as they are extensively used on toll collection facilities. PPPs have been implemented in various countries such as South Korea, India, and others. The boost in PPPs and surged investments through private channels can assist in boosting the infrastructure industry; thereby, driving the demand and growth of drop arm barrier market. Many countries are focusing on rapid development of road projects for overall economic development of their nations. For instance, the Indian government plans to construct roads worth $200 billion in the next two years, which will further increase the demand for drop arm barriers. Moreover, the availability of drop arms in a wide range of sizes and a variety of control options has further increased the end user industry of drop arm barriers. However, restraint caused by drop arm barriers in the movement of traffic, thereby reducing the speed of moving vehicles, is a restraint on the growth of drop arm barrier industry. On the contrary, increase in number of shopping malls and amusement parks in developing countries is expected to boost the drop arm barrier market in the forecast period. 

Market Trends

  • Rise in urbanization has resulted in rapid construction of institutional and commercial buildings globally. Thus, creating a need for safety and access control solutions, and further increasing the demand for drop arm barriers to maintain the security of the premises.
  • Major industry players are focusing on development of drop arms that are easy to install and cost-effective. For instance, the Ameristar Perimeter Security offers, M30 Crash Test Certified M530 Anti-Ram Drop Arm Barrier that does not require excavation and is available with a span up to 22 feet. 
  • Increase in vehicle density has created a demand for drop arms that can perform quick operations. UlgenIndustrial Group offers Optima Challenger Electromechanical Arm Barriers, which are designed to handle high flow traffic and are capable of working in harsh environmental conditions. It can be operated using a card reader, fingerprint, radio control, on/off key switch and other control devices.
