The majority of the market share is held by the commercial wire fence segment and it is anticipated to be the fastest-growing segment in the coming few years. The primary growth drivers for this segment will be the rampant industrialization and construction activities around the world. Furthermore, the rising issues related to security and safety are also likely to propel the global fencing market in the near future. The end users of fences are sectors such as residential, industrial, and agricultural. Out of these segments, the agricultural wire fence segment is poised to grow at a rapid pace in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific.

Durability of Plastic and Composite Fencing to Propel Segment

The materials used for making metal fence are barbed and twisted steel wire fences, non-wire fences, and other metal fences. Meanwhile, the wood fence segment includes assembled fences, unassembled fences, and other wood fences.  Plastic and composite fences are made of vinyl, HDPE, and composites. Besides these materials, concrete is also used for making fences.

Out of the aforementioned materials, the metal fencing market brings in the maximum revenue for the overall market. However, analysts predict that the plastic and composite fencing segments are likely to surge ahead in the long-term due to the enhanced durability of these materials. The sale of these materials is also expected be boosted by the fact that they are low on maintenance and do not require regular repair.

Construction Activities to Dictate Market’s Growth Worldwide

Geographically, the fencing market is segmented into North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, and Rest of the World. Currently, North America is leading the global fencing market followed by Asia Pacific and Europe. The fencing market in North America is primarily being driven by the rising residential sector and increasing demand for decorative fencing products from consumers. Furthermore, Asia Pacific has been anticipated to be the fastest growing fencing market in the near future due to the burgeoning agricultural sector and ongoing construction projects.

Competitive Pricing Creates Stiff Competition
