    Market Highlights

    The mechanical anchor market is estimated to grow at a healthy CAGR of 4.9% during the forecast period to reach a value of US$ 2.8 billion in 2028.

    What is mechanical anchor?

    Anchors are used to connect structural elements of base material to masonry and concrete in buildings and structures. The basic purpose of an anchor is to provide a means of attachment between two or more separate elements. Mechanical anchors use friction to anchor themselves in place. They are used to expand in diameter when they are pushed into the hole. This expansion grips the base material tightly and causes the anchor to be firmly wedged in place.

    Market Dynamics

    Major factors such as, expanding worldwide construction industry, rise in capital expenditure on infrastructure development and increasing demand for commercial and residential construction due to rapid urbanization, industrialization, and increasing disposable income are likely to be the major demand generators for mechanical anchors during the forecast period.

    COVID-19 Impact

    In the year 2020, the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic hit hard the construction industry. Supply chain disruptions, project delays, limited demand for new buildings, labor and raw material shortages, and lockdowns across the world were some of the major consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic. The mechanical anchor market was no exception to it and recorded a decline of -9.9% in 2020. However, the market got recovered from the disruption brought by the pandemic in the year 2021, and regained its pre-pandemic level in 2021 only.
