The concrete market was valued at $617,260.1 million in 2020, and is expected to reach $972,046.3 million by 2030, registering a CAGR of 4.7% from 2021 to 2030. Concrete market includes revenue generated by sales of ready-mix concrete and precast products & elements. Ready-mix concrete is a mixture of cement, sand, water, aggregates, and sometimes binding adhesives. It is manufactured in batches at a central plant instead of mixing it on the job site. It is then transported to job site generally using mobile concrete trucks or trailers. In addition, precast products include paving stones & slabs, bricks, AAC blocks, and other similar products that are generally manufactured in bulk quantity, whereas precast element includes façade, floor, building blocks, pipe, and other similar products. These elements are generally used in construction of large infrastructures such as bridges and water management systems.

Increase in government expenditures for development and reconstruction & repair of infrastructures such as improvement of roads, bridges, and others drives the market growth. In addition, ready-mix concrete and precast products & elements save a lot of manufacturing, transportation, and installation time. These products are also cost effective as wastage while manufacturing these products is less. Furthermore, development in machinery and technology to manufacture these products help to achieve accuracy and overcome lack of skilled labor problem. However, high initial investment is needed to setup a ready-mix plant or a precast manufacturing facility. In addition, rise in adoption of environment friendly material for construction of buildings acts as restraint to the concrete market. Moreover, during the outbreak of COVID-19, construction, manufacturing, hotel, and tourism industries were majorly affected. Manufacturing activities were also stopped or restricted to a huge extent. Construction and transportation activities, along with their supply chains hampered on a global level. This led to decline in manufacturing of cement, which directly hampered growth of the concrete market. However, gradually industries are resuming their regular manufacturing and services. This is further expected to lead to re-initiation of cement companies at their full-scale capacities, which is expected to help the concrete market to recover by end of 2021.

Concrete-Market-2021-2030

On the contrary, rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing countries has given rise to construction activities and is generating growth opportunities for the concrete market growth.

The concrete market is segmented into concrete type, application, end-user industry and region. By concrete type, it is segregated into ready-mix concrete, precast products and precast elements. Depending on application, it is classified into reinforced concrete and non-reinforced concrete. On the basis of end-user industry, it is divided into roads & highways, tunnels, residential buildings, non-residential buildings &, dams & power plants, mining and others. By region, it is analyzed across North America (the U.S., Canada, and Mexico), Europe (Germany, the UK, France, Spain, Finland, Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg and rest of Europe), Asia-Pacific (China, Japan, South Korea, India, and rest of Asia-Pacific), and LAMEA (Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa).
