Translucent Concrete Market Statistics - 2027

The global translucent concrete market size is expected to reach $21,022.8 thousand in 2027, from $2,469.7 thousand in 2019, growing at a CAGR of 39.9% from 2020 to 2027. Translucent concrete is also known as light transmitting concrete that has light transmission property through the light optical material. Optical fibers that are implanted in the concrete carry light from one side of the wall, roof, or floor to the other end. Light has to be transmitted through the entire concrete block; therefore, the optical fiber is passed through the entire panel of the concrete from one end to the other. This results in the passage of light, through optical fibers, that fall on either side of the wall to pass through the translucent concrete wall and create a light pattern on the other side, depending on the structure of the optical fibers.

The basic materials used to manufacture translucent concrete are fine concrete and optical fibers. Fine concrete consists of fine aggregate such as sand and cement. The translucent concrete is manufactured by placing a layer of optical fibers between two concrete sheets. Thin layers of the concrete are poured into the mold and between each layer a fine layer of optical fiber is infused. The concrete is poured into the mold and the optical fibers are embedded as per the desired path of the light to flow to form a design or pattern at the other end. After drying, the concrete is cut into pieces of desired size with standard cutting tools and is thereafter used to build walls.

Translucent concrete can be used as walls or partitions in buildings. It will allow the light to pass inside through the wall and help in reducing the usage of electricity to operate the lighting system that is used during daytime. Moreover, the translucent concrete can be used as walls for sidewalks which will keep the sidewalks illuminated using external daylight. Further, it can be used as facades for buildings to enhance their aesthetic look. For instance, the Al Aziz Mosque in Abu Dhabi in the UAE features Arabic script spelling of ninety-nine names of God from the Quran. At night, the facade shines with those names, as the concrete script lights up in the darkness. Further, it can also be used as wall partitions, where the optical fibers are embedded in such a pattern that the transmitted light will create design or attractive pattern on the other side making the partition look beautiful. In addition, it can be used as roofing for the subways that are built to cross the busy streets. There will be conservation of energy consumption that is used to operate the lighting system in the subway during daytime as the translucent concrete roof will help in lamination of the subway to some extent. Moreover, the translucent concrete blocks that are used for floors look like normal concrete blocks during the daytime, but at night in the dark due to an illumination installed beneath the blocks it shines. The translucent concrete blocks in flooring applications commercial building floorings, residential floorings, restaurant floorings, footpath or walking tracks in gardens and staircases fulfils the aesthetical requirements of construction.
