Report ID: GMI3694
Cellular Concrete Market size is likely to exhibit an upward growth trend in the foreseeable future owing to its growing demand from construction industry. The global construction industry spending has increased from about USD 9.5 trillion in 2014 to approximately USD 11 trillion in 2017. This global construction spending is likely to surpass USD 14 trillion by 2025. This growth in the construction market will in turn increase the demand for cellular concrete owing to its usage in various building applications like load-bearing walls, pre-cast blocks, insulation etc.
Cellular concrete is a lightweight porous cement-based material which is produced in various densities ranging between 250 kg/m³ to 1600 kg/m³. Cellular concrete is also known as aerated, formed or autoclaved lightweight concrete. Major raw materials used in the production of cellular concrete are cement, fly ash and foam. This type of concrete has an even distribution of bubbles with sizes ranging from 0.1 to 1.5 mm.
Cellular concrete is lightweight and highly flowable. It is better than the conventional cement due to high strength, lower density and fire-resistance properties. These characteristics make it an ideal fit for modern construction. This is a cost-effective alternative owing to inclusion of foam and reuse of industrial waste like fly ash. As disposal of fly ash is very expensive, its reuse in producing cellular concrete would help in making this process more economical. This also makes the product environment friendly, a trait, that would further augment the cellular concrete market demand in the coming years.
This lightweight alternative is also accompanied by certain limitations. Firstly, the equipment used in the product manufacturing process are very expensive. This process also consumes a high amount of energy and requires large production facilities. These factors will hinder the growth of the market by restricting small and medium players to invest in the sector. Additionally, slow drying process makes it inappropriate for cast-in-place projects.
The cellular concrete market has been segregated based on application, end-user, and region. The unique properties of this product make it ideal for various application like building materials, concrete pipes, road infrastructure, roof insulation, void filling, bridge abutment and others. Roof insulation is a significant application in the cellular concrete market. The product is extensively used to manufacture roofing solutions owing to its good thermal insulation features. The product is also used in making building blocks and panels of any dimension for load bearing walls. The aggregates used in the production of cellular concrete are extremely small which makes its appropriate for applications like reshaping, pre-casting etc.
The various end-users of the cellular concrete market are residential, commercial, industrial and municipal. Municipal end-user would occupy a significant market share owing to the product usage in patios, sidewalks, porch decks, roads, bridges etc. The product helps in reducing cost and weight of these civil structures. Its superior acoustic and thermal features fulfill the requirements of residential and commercial end-users. Hence, these end-users would portray a high growth rate in the coming years.
In terms of region, Asia Pacific is a significant consumer in the cellular concrete market due to its rising construction projects. The Asia Pacific infrastructure industry is likely to grow at a rate of more than 7% and reach about USD 5 trillion by 2025. Such rising trend in the construction sector would increase the demand building materials. As the product is cost effective, lightweight and environment friendly, the demand for cellular concrete would propel in this region. Increasing demand from countries like China, India, Indonesia and South Korea would further increase the demand for the product in the coming years. The major drivers behind this growth in construction sector are expanding customer base, rising urbanization, smart city development, improved consumer spending, etc.
