This publication, "The Global Market for Towers and Poles in the Electricity, Telecoms and Rail sectors, 2012 - 2017" provides detailed analysis of the world's installed base of electricity steel towers and poles of all types by numbers and values, with forecasts for each to 2017, and the same for the telecoms and rail sectors.

For electricity and telecoms, the report provides detailed analysis of demand and provides forecasts to 2017. There is also a breakdown by world region and country. The report also profiles some of the key manufacturers.

Growth in the assets needed for energy transmission is driven by the growth of renewables, replacement of aging assets in existing networks (often well overdue) and upgrading of grids. Distribution growth is driven by increased electrification and use of energy as well as asset replacement.

Commentary is supported by 131 charts, tables and images.
