Modernization of Infrastructure for Better Performance and Long Service Life Across Various Industries is a Key Factor Expected to Fuel the Growth of the FRP Gratings Market

FRP gratings are used in various applications, due to their versatile properties. FRP gratings in stair treads, walkways, and other applications are a cost-effective means of substituting engineering metals. These gratings are corrosion-resistant and lightweight, which leads to low maintenance and installation costs. The gratings have excellent mechanical properties and stiffness-to-weight ratio, which makes them suitable for use in the construction industry. The global FRP gratings market is projected to reach USD 574.2 Million by 2021, at a CAGR of 4.24%.
