    Market Dynamics


    In the poles market, composites (FRP) have earned a largely unheralded but significant place because of their lightweight, strength, and low conductive properties. The poles made of FRP are highly resistant to corrosion, rot, UV rays, water absorption, insects, and woodpeckers. These poles do not lose strength as well as require less maintenance as compared to wood and concrete poles. They are highly recommended by experts in the wake of their electrical property and their ability to withstand heavy wind loads and impact.
