Precast Concrete Market by Element (Columns & Beams, Floors & Roofs, Girders, Walls & Barriers, Utility Vaults), Construction Type (Elemental, Permanent Modular, Relocatable), End-use Sector (Residential, Non-residential) - Global Forecast to 2022
“The precast concrete market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.96%.”
The precast concrete market size is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.96% during the forecast period, that is, 2017 to 2022, and reach USD 138.96 billion by 2022. The precast concrete market is driven by factors such as increasing urban population, increasing industrialization, and large-scale investments in the industrial and infrastructure sectors. Precast technology allows the construction of a larger number of structures with reduced time and costs, compared to conventional on-site construction methods. The precast method offers the benefits of high quality, increased efficiency, and better finishing. Lack of awareness regarding precast construction techniques and its benefits, along with volatility in transportation charges might restrain the demand for this type of construction.
“The elemental construction segment dominated the precast concrete market in 2016.”
The elemental construction segment dominated the precast concrete market in 2016 and is projected to be the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to factors such as keen interest from contractors and builders in using individual precast modules to build an entire structure across residential and non-residential construction sectors and increase in public and private investment in global infrastructural development, especially in the emerging economies of Asia Pacific and South America.
“Asia Pacific is expected to witness a high growth rate during the forecast period.”
The Asia Pacific market is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period. The major factor driving the growth of the market is the large-scale government investments in the infrastructure sector in this region. Additionally, the increasing population and rising incomes are driving the per capita spending on construction. The markets of China and India are projected to be lucrative due to their ongoing and upcoming infrastructural construction projects as well as rising consumer spending on construction sectors.
