The global precast concrete market size was valued at USD 115.98 billion in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 162.72 billion by 2027, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.4% during the forecast period.

Precast concrete is prepared by casting concrete in a reusable mold, which is cured off-site in a controlled environment, and then transported to the construction site. Precast concrete products such as walls, floors, columns, and beams are joined together to obtain a complete structure. The controlled condition allows this concrete to cure properly and be monitored closely. Production of precast type of concrete has various advantages including control over material quality, better workmanship, and safety, as the production is done at ground level. The molds for pre-casting of concrete are reusable and can be used several times before getting replaced, thereby making it cost efficient than on-site casting. The popularity of this type of concrete is increasing with the rising urbanization and construction activities. The shift of construction industry towards the incorporation of sustainable, eco-friendly, cost-effective, and modern construction techniques has resulted in the growth of the market. Therefore, the rising construction projects in developing countries to update their existing infrastructure will further boost the demand for precast concrete.

Incorporation of Precast Concrete Products in Residential Buildings to Add Impetus

Precast concrete products such as walls, beams, columns, and stairs are incorporated in residential buildings. The ease and speed with which these products can be built has made precast concrete popular in the building & construction industry. This type of concrete products offers efficient and economical construction in varied weather conditions. These products are manufactured off-site, in a meticulous manner, which improves its overall quality. The use of pre-casted products significantly reduces overall cost, construction time, and waste reduction.


Rapid Urbanization Activities and Increase in Population To Fuel The Demand

Rapid urbanization and the exponential rise in population are the key factors promoting the market growth. The rising need for non-residential establishments such as airports, sports complexes, malls, and commercial spaces will effectively influence an escalated supply chain owing to the reduced construction time, and cost effectiveness. The rising demand for residential spaces due to growing population, coupled with the initiatives by government to provide housing for the Economically Weaker Section (EWS) will further boost the demand for this product. Moreover, the pursuit of better career opportunities has led to more urbanization activities, thereby increasing its use in offices and other commercial spaces.


Rising Environmental Concerns Related Cement Manufacturing To Hinder The Market Growth

Cement is an important constituent of concrete. The production of cement is one of the major contributors to the global warming and several types of pollution. Cement manufacturing sites are significant sources of toxic gases such as nitrogen oxide, sulfur dioxide, and carbon monoxide. These gases are associated with health issues such as asthma, visual impairment, and cardiovascular diseases. The environmental impacts of these gases include acid rain, depletion in water quality, and global warming. The environmental concerns and health issues related to the manufacturing of cement will act as restraint for the precast concrete market. Additionally, regulations enforced by the governments to reduce emissions from cement production sites will further slowdown the CAGR of the market.
