UK Guardrail Market Size

One approach to estimating market size involves analyzing revenues generated by key players on a given market. However, a problem arises when trying to establish the revenue generated from the sale of guardrail systems. The leading players in this industry offer a broad range of various products and, therefore, it’s challenging trying to figure what share of the revenue corresponds to a particular product. The process is even more difficult given that these companies are not required to file the statement of comprehensive income in the public domain — a financial report that would have enabled us to determine if the companies distinguish their revenues by product segment.
In the absence of actual figures, we will hold the assumption that the summation of the companies’ estimated annual revenues is a representation of the UK’s guardrails market for BS7818 guardrails.
Therefore, the size of the guardrail market in the UK is approximately $151.8 million (85+16.08+14+13.42+8.53+8+5+1+0.4+0.396).
