Polished Concrete Market Research, 2031

The global polished concrete market was valued at $2.2 billion in 2021 and is projected to reach $3.7 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2031. Polished concrete is created by physically honing, polishing, and grinding a concrete floor with bonded abrasives to smooth up the surface. After that, it is altered for each cut until the appropriate level of look is obtained. In this procedure, a penetrant substance known as a hardener is also utilized. After penetrating the concrete, the concrete hardener triggers a chemical process that hardens and dust-proofs the surface. Concrete polishing involves processing the surface over several steps using progressively finer grinding instruments.

The cost of the raw materials and energy used to manufacture polished concrete is volatile, and this tendency is expected to continue during the forecast period. The cost of raw materials could increase due to fluctuations in the price of crude oil and petroleum products, which would subsequently increase the cost of cement, sealants, and adhesives used in polished concrete. As a result, the cost of these components has a direct impact on the cost of polished concrete. Vendors boost the price of their product's profit margins in reaction to rising raw material costs, limiting the potential of the polished concrete market share to grow.

During the forecast year, there will be a surge in the number of redevelopment and renovation projects in non-residential facilities. The structures of their establishments are also being renovated by hotel and resort owners in an effort to increase their customers and improve the accommodation experience. For instance, JW Marriott debuted a new hotel in Canberra, Australia, in September 2019. The hotel has polished concrete flooring, which further improves the visual appeal of the floors, and it has the latest design accents. Furthermore, a rise in investments from industry players in the residential construction and retail sectors is projected to hasten the use of polished concrete.
