Rapid growth in the residential construction sector is poised to augment the industry demand owing to increasing investments in designer housing complexes. Moreover, rapid growth in urban population globally has led to a rise in demand for affordable housing in emerging economies. According to the World Bank data, 55% of the global population, i.e., nearly 4.2 billion people reside in cities and this number will expand in the future with an estimated addition of 1.2 million km2 area for new urban infrastructure by 2050.

Countries including China, India, Indonesia, and Brazil are positively investing in residential construction due to the rising mid-income group and their changing lifestyles. The rapid urbanization process coupled with significant improvements in building quality will boost product demand. Furthermore, precast concrete provides ideal solutions for architects and structural engineers to meet the rising demand by gearing up the speed of construction.

Additionally, favorable government & state policies will sustain the demand for precast concrete by 2027.  High energy efficiency and sustainability of precast materials are positively impacting the industry statistics. Multiple government agencies, such as the National Precast Concrete Association (NPCA), the Architectural Precast Association (APC), etc., are approving precast materials in the U.S. for transportation projects owing to its safety features. The high costs of finished products and increasing shipment costs over long distances will restrict industry growth.

However, in many developing countries, the lack of proper infrastructures, such as poor rail and road connectivity, is expected to suppress the industry demand. Nevertheless, rising economic activities across the globe will fuel the precast concrete market growth.

Water and wastewater management products to lead the market share

The water and wastewater management segment is slated to cross USD 50 billion in 2027 as the product can offer a high weather-resistance ability, good strength, and flexibility. These plant structures need to withstand earthquakes, which further creates demand for precast concrete. The rapid adoption of modern stormwater runoff management systems in developed countries to protect water resources and aquatic ecosystems will contribute to the overall industry expansion.
