Hard to say, I don't think they have an average life. Mine is 35 years old and still working fine. But keep in mind, the white fiberglass pole is just the casing, the real antennae is the cable inside. As long as, it's not bent alot or exposed to sun light it could be many years.
There was an earlier post on here discussing revitilizing the fiberglass mast. I've never tried it myself but you may try searching for that.
