Industry Trends

Rapid Strength Concrete Market size was USD 305.9 billion in 2019 and will grow at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2020 to 2026. Rapidly rising construction activity in developing nations in Asia Pacific and Latin America will propel the demand growth during forecast timeframe.

Rapid strength concrete is a type of concrete that gains strength quickly after use. This type of concrete has strength above 3,000 psi which is attained in less than 2 hours. Rapid strength concrete is an alternative solution to other forms of concrete for renovation and preservation of fast aging infrastructure. The growing infrastructure projects in Latin America coupled with growing economies will boost the public and private investment in construction industry for the projected period of time. Additionally, growing emphasis on eco-friendly concrete also expected to drive the product market demand over projected timeframe.

Rapid strength concrete is widely used in roadways construction around the world. Strong residential dwellings market in Asia Pacific and recovering housing market in Europe will have positive impact on the rapid strength concrete market size over the forecast timeframe. Governments in Latin America has been focusing on improving transportation infrastructure such as roads, bridges. Increasing infrastructure investment in Latin America likely to strengthen market opportunity for industry players.

Rapid strength concrete is generally used to repair structures such as roads & bridges construction, building/floors, tunnel construction, airfield construction, highway construction. Although the product achieves high strength in a short period of time (less than 20 Mpa [3000 psi] in 3 hours) the primary motive is to provide permanent solution and increase the life of structure. North America construction industry is on a rise due to increasing residential complexes and business complexes. The above-mentioned trends are likely to trigger demand for rapid strength concrete industry in the near future, signifying higher ability to capture the market in the coming years.

The rapid strength concrete used in major applications such as buildings/floors, roads/bridges, airfields, tunnels, highways, and other minor applications such as dockyards, parking lots, etc. In constructing roads/bridges, usually concrete having compressive strength more than 40 MPa and less than 80 MPa in 24 hours is used as it is comparatively more durable to withstand climate change conditions and weathering caused due to heavy vehicles. Additionally, it dries faster which is intended to remove framework which helps in making it operational in lesser time.

Growing infrastructure projects in the U.S. is anticipated to drive market growth during forecast period. For instance, the construction industry in the U.S. is valued at more than USD 1 trillion and is expected to grow in the projected period of time. The upcoming construction projects will further boost the construction industry. California High-Speed Rail Project, which is a high-speed rail system under construction in California cost approximately around USD 11 billion. The cost per mile is about USD 89 Million the construction of the project started in 2015 and is scheduled to be completed by 2029. However, even though product demand is rising, market is likely to face challenges during forecast period.

Lack of product awareness in emerging economies expected to hinder market growth in coming years. Moreover, covid-19 pandemic has slowed the economic growth around the world. Supply chain disruptions, international trade halt, lockdown and travel restrictions by government have slowed the construction activity subsequently slowing rapid strength concrete demand for various applications.

Infrastructure plays important role in country’s economic development and developed economies spend major percentage of GDP on developing infrastructure projects such as roads. For instance, in U.S. road construction usually governed and funded by federal, state and local governments. However, country is witnessing the rise in public private partnerships (PPP) that will either receive funding from government to build a road or they can generate revenue from road constructed. Therefore, due to massive spending in the U.S. and other key countries across the globe. The overall rapid strength concrete market size for roads/bridges will reach close to USD 45 billion in 2026.

The European road building market is projected to grow

Europe will account close to 25% market share by revenue in 2026. The European road building market is projected to grow strongly, which is supported by the growth in the UK, Norway and Poland, which has shown growth of about 39%, 38%, and 35% respectively in 2019 as compared with 2016. According to World Highways, the road building market is predicted to grow at 16% for the projected period of time. The recent Euro construct forecast a market uplift in the road construction. Growing road construction in region will propel rapid strength concrete demand in coming years.

Mergers & acquisitions is major strategy for the industry players

Sika Corporation, key player involved in the production of rapid strength concrete, acquired two companies to strengthen its market position. In November 2017, Sika Corporation acquired Butterfield Color and in April 2016, the company acquired L.M. Scofield Company of Los Angeles. With these acquisitions Sika integrated their value chain.
