The global concrete cutting market size was valued at USD 5.48 billion in 2022. The market is projected to grow from USD 5.67 billion in 2023 to USD 7.83 billion by 2030, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.7% during the forecast period.


Concrete cutting machines are the tools that used for road maintenance and construction. The main function of the cut road surface. It can be used for demolition as well as refurbishment applications. Wall saws, floor saws, walk-behind push, handheld cut-off saws, circular saws, and hydraulic chainsaws are some of the equipment used while construction sectors. It can be used to cut bricks, stones, construction, slabs, walls, masonry, and asphalt. The market comprises of the sales generated from equipment and the attachment which can be assembled into various equipment such as handheld cut, walk-behind push, wheel loader, skid steer, and excavators. The attachment providers are considered aftermarket service providers.


Apart from this, the overall concrete operation involves the players that are core OEMs, OEMs that provide equipment and aftermarket services, and other local aftermarket services.


The infrastructure sector majorly includes bridges, roads, power, dams, and urban infrastructure. Infrastructural development is a key driver of the economic growth of any country. Therefore, government and private institutions are investing heavily in infrastructure projects in order to support economic growth and development. For instance, according to the Global Infrastructure Hub, the investment by the Indonesia government in the construction sector grew by 30.2% in 2022 as compared to 2020. Such an investment in infrastructure development drives the demand for this equipment. In addition, advances in edge-cutting technology have made the process safer by reducing the risk of accidents and injuries. New equipment designs, such as diamond saw blades and wire saws can cut the concrete with less dust and noise, reducing the risk of respiratory problems and hearing loss. For instance, iQ Power tools make use of cyclonic vacuum system to manufacture their products which enables the equipment to absorb 99.5% of the dust created. Such factors drive the growth of the market.


COVID-19 IMPACT


Halt on Construction-Related Activities Due to COVID-19 Pandemic Restrained Market Growth


The pandemic put a halt on construction-related activities and demolition activities and also led to supply chain problems. This resulted in a drop in the net sales generated by companies operating in the market. For instance, the net sales of Atlas Copco AB decreased by 5.2% from 2019 to 2020. Such a drop in the net sales of companies reduced the net sales of machines.


Moreover, after the post-COVID-19 pandemic, manufacturers are focusing more on reducing carbon emissions generated from machines used in the concrete cutting industry and construction applications. Further, the rising spending in construction-related activities, which consists of demolition as well as refurbishment projects subsequently increased the demand for the products, driving the growth of the market.  


For instance, as per Atradius, the construction industry in Japan witnessed a growth of 4% in 2022 as compared to 2021. Such a growth in the construction sector is expected to uplift the demand for concrete cutters in the coming years.


LATEST TRENDS


Growing Trend of Using Diamond Blades for Masonry Cutting to Trigger the Market Growth

DRIVING FACTORS


Rising Infrastructure-Related Activities to Drive the Market Growth


The infrastructure sector majorly includes bridges, roads, power, dams, and urban infrastructure. Infrastructural development is a key driver of the economic growth of any country. Therefore, government and private institutions are investing heavily in infrastructure projects in order to support economic growth and development. The machines are largely used in these infrastructure projects. For instance, the U.S. government’s investment in infrastructural development is projected to grow by 9.4% from 2021 to 2024. Therefore, as these projects continue to increase the demand for cutters, this is expected to escalate the diamond blades demand. In such a way, all these factors increase the global concrete cutting market share.  


RESTRAINING FACTORS


High Cost of Maintenance and Procurement Costs to Restraint the Market Growth


Concrete cutting can be expensive, making it challenging for individuals or businesses that need this equipment to justify the initial investment. In addition, it requires regular maintenance to ensure that it remains in good working condition and performs effectively, increasing the maintenance cost. Around USD 4.75 and USD 7.5 per foot are required to cut concrete during construction operations. Around USD 600 to USD 1,000 is required for demolition activities per slab. As a result, many businesses and individuals may explore other alternative options, such as renting and buying used cutters, which may affect new equipment sales, hindering the global concrete cutting market growth.
