Governments worldwide are promoting the use of sustainable and durable construction materials due to the rising awareness of the environmental impact on the surroundings. Engineers and architects are also recognizing the benefits of FRP bridges in terms of longevity and cost-effectiveness. This is why, there is a growing demand for FRP bridges in the construction and infrastructure development sector.

Urbanization and modernization are also expanding in countries like Japan, China, and India, leading to the construction of new bridges and the renovation of existing ones, leading to lightweight bridge solutions being in demand, particularly in areas with challenging terrain or environmental conditions. Innovations in FRP technology have also led to enhanced strength and durability of bridge structures, making them ideal for these projects.

“Product development and keeping up with the latest innovations in the industry is very essential in this market. Companies in the FRP bridge market must invest in research and development to innovate new FRP bridge solutions, such as modular systems, pedestrian bridges, and trail bridges. This will help them enhance durability, ease of installation, and performance in various environmental conditions,” – opines Nikhil Kaitwade, Associate Vice President at Future Market Insights (FMI).
