Self-Compacting Concrete Market by Type (Powder, Viscosity, Combination), Application (Drilled Shafts, Columns, Metal Decking, Concrete Frames), End User (Oil & Gas Construction, Infrastructure, Building & Construction), Region - Global Forecast to 2026
The self-compacting concrete market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.7% between 2016 and 2021
The global self-compacting concrete market is projected to reach USD 15.18 billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.7% during the forecast period.
Elimination of mechanical compaction by self-compacting concrete saves time and labor. It also reduces rework, equipment requirements, and damages to formworks. Use of self-compacting concrete in construction activities results in low level of noise and offers exceptional finishing. Growth of the self-compacting concrete market has been driven by varied factors, such as non-requirement of vibration processes in laying self-compacting concrete, significant reduction in maintenance, repairing, and overhauling (MRO) costs of self-compacting concrete, and limited impact on the environment. However, high costs associated with the use of self-compacting concrete and limited use of self-compacting concrete in construction activities in emerging economies are factors restraining the growth of the market.
The infrastructure segment is the largest end user segment of the global self-compacting concrete market
The infrastructure end user segment accounted for the largest share of the global self-compacting concrete market in 2015. Large-scale investment projects, especially in the Middle Eastern and African countries serve to be a key factor driving the growth of the global self-compacting concrete market. The infrastructure segment is the biggest consumer of self-compacting concrete owing to increasing construction of drilled shafts, columns, metal decking, and concrete frames.
The powder type self-compacting concrete is the largest type of design mix segment in the global self-compacting concrete market
Among all types of design mix, the powder type self-compacting concrete segment accounted for the largest share of the global self-compacting concrete market in 2015. This segment is projected to grow at the second-highest CAGR between 2016 and 2021. Powder type self-compacting concrete provides the required self-compatibility by reducing water-powder ratio, thereby offering adequate segregation resistance. A high demand for powder type self-compacting concrete is witnessed globally, owing to its low water-binder ratio.
Asia-Pacific is leading the global self-compacting concrete market during the forecast period
The Asia-Pacific region accounted for the largest share of the global self-compacting concrete market in 2015. This growth is mainly attributed to the increasing construction activities in countries such as Japan, India, Thailand, Singapore, Australia, and Malaysia.
