Precast Concrete Market Growth Drivers & Restraints

The rising demand for sustainable construction methods, including renewable and recyclable materials to limit adverse environmental impacts will stimulate the industry expansion. However, the increasing capital costs along with the growing challenges related to transporting, handling and modifying the precast concrete will pose as a restraint for the market growth.

COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic presented multiple challenges for the precast concrete industry due to global supply chain disruptions led by lockdowns and temporary closures of manufacturing facilities, leading to production and delivery delays of precast concrete components. It also affected the project timelines, resulting in potential cost overruns. Multiple construction projects were delayed and put on hold considering the influx of lockdown measures and economic uncertainties. Moreover, the higher emphasis on sustainability, including environmentally friendly as well as energy-efficient construction practices added positive impetus to the market growth.

Precast Concrete Market Trends

Increasing prominence of modular and prefabricated construction will drive the adoption of precast concrete. The adoption of precast concrete in modular and prefabricated construction methods provides numerous benefits, including improved quality control, accelerated construction schedules, and design flexibility. Precast concrete has grown popular as an integral component of modern construction practices to enable faster, efficient, and sustainable building solutions. Rising incorporation in demanding construction applications will also enhance the market outlook.

Precast Concrete Market Analysis

With respect to product, the precast concrete market size from water & wastewater management products is slated to witness exponential growth through 2032. This can be attributed to the rising developments in sewer systems, water treatment plants, and stormwater management. Precast concrete is widely used in water and wastewater management as it offers improved resistance to chemicals and corrosion, rapid construction, cost-effectiveness, durability, and ease of maintenance. Increasing utilization in the construction of storage tanks in wastewater management will also contribute to the segment growth.

Based on sector, the infrastructure segment holds around 40% of the precast concrete market share propelled by the thriving rail & road transportation worldwide. As per the IEA (International Energy Agency), the passenger and freight activity may more than double by 2050 due to the surging demand for transport. Precast concrete plays a crucial role in infrastructure development to offer time and cost savings along with improved design flexibility, quality control, construction site safety, durability, and resilience. Increasing adoption in the construction of bridges, tunnels, airports, highways, railway systems, and wastewater treatment plants will add to the product demand.

Asia Pacific precast concrete market is set to gain significant momentum through 2032 propelled by the incessant need for rapid as well as sustainable construction solutions.
