According to a recent report published by Allied Market Research, titled, “Bridge Construction Market by Type, Material, and Application: Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2021–2030,” the global bridge construction market size was valued at $857.7 billion in 2020, and is projected to reach $1,416.9 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 5.0% from 2021 to 2030.

Asia-Pacific generated the highest revenue in 2020, and is expected to grow at a high CAGR during the forecast period, followed by LAMEA and North America. In addition, surge in road and highway construction industry in the developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil is expected to increase the demand for new bridges. However, volatile economic condition in Latin America may hamper the bridge construction market growth. The impact of this factor is anticipated to reduce in future due to intense competition and new bridge development by bridge construction players.

Major types of bridge construction products included in the report are beam, truss, arch, suspension, cable-stayed, and others. The others segment includes stressed ribbon, pile, covered, cantilever bridge, and others. The beam bridge construction constituted the highest market share in 2020, owing to increased demand in the transport infrastructure industry.

By material, the concrete segment accounted for the largest market share in the bridge construction market in 2020. The steel bridges are widely used for railway networks that facilitate inter-state and inter-country connectivity along with other economic activities such as trading activities. With an aim to achieve enhanced economic productivity, governments across various countries indulge in increased investments in railway constructions. Increased railway constructions lead to infrastructural development, which includes bridges made of steel. Hence, railway infrastructural developments drive the bridge construction market trends.

In addition, increase in urbanization around the globe especially in developing regions has created the need for new bridges; thereby, boosting the bridge construction market opportunities.

By application, the road and highway segment accounted for the maximum bridge construction market share in 2020, and is expected to maintain its lead throughout the forecast period. This is attributed to rapid urbanization & industrialization, an increase in population, as well as the governments’ continuing efforts to expand and upgrade the transport infrastructure.

COVID-19 severely affected new bridge construction in 2020, and caused a negative impact on the market growth throughout the year. The major demand for new bridges from developing countries including India, Brazil, Vietnam, and China is badly affected by the spread of coronavirus, thereby halting new bridge construction activity. Further, the disruption of supply chains is causing hindrance in completing the new bridges around the globe.

Furthermore, the companies have adopted product development and acquisition, as their key developmental strategy to sustain the intense competition and expand their foot prints. For instance, in August 2017, South Korea based Samsung C&T completed the construction of Mersey Gateway Bridge. It is a 2.13 km long 6 lanes cable stayed bridge. The estimated cost of the project is around $450 million.
