Rapid Strength Concrete Market, By Strength

The rapid strength concrete industry is segmented, based on strength, into three types including 0 to 40 MPa, 40 to 80 MPa, and above 80 MPa. The 0 to 40 MPa strength segment held the largest share owing to its widespread applications in the construction of building, floors, parking areas, etc. It is primarily used in the construction of slabs and pathways which in turn will drive the segments growth during the forecast timeframe. The segment recorded a revenue of more than USD 150 billion in 2016.

Rapid strength concrete market demand with compressive strength of more than 80 MPa in 24 hours is chiefly used in construction of airfields and highways. The faster drying rate of this product along with its durable nature will increase its usage in the high-speed construction of roads and highways. This segment is likely to witness high demand in the coming years in North America and Europe owing to the significant number of new highway enlargement and construction projects in these regions. The segment will gain by a CAGR exceeding 6% during the forecast timeframe.

By Application

Based on application, the market is segmented into roads/bridges, buildings/floors, tunnels, airfields, highways, and other minor applications such as parking lots, dockyards, etc. Buildings/floors is the largest application segment in the market which is probable to rise at CAGR close to 7.5% owing to the large number of residential and commercial building construction projects in Asia Pacific and other emerging regions. Rapid urbanization in developing countries such as India, Brazil, etc. has augmented construction for residential buildings in the region which will subsequently boost the overall market size in the near future. 

Highways is also a key application segment which accounted for more than 10% of the entire industry in 2016. The spurt in the number of new highway projects all around the globe, coupled with repairing activities on old highways will augment this application segments growth in the forecast timeframe. New airport construction projects around the globe will propel the airfield application segment growth. Asia Pacific has the highest number of airport construction projects followed by Europe and North America. These projects will positively influence the airfield application segments growth which is likely to advance by a CAGR above 6% during the forecast period.

By Region

North America is the largest rapid strength concrete market owing to rapidly increasing construction projects coupled with higher awareness about the product’s benefits. The U.S. having the largest network of roads in the world requires a large amount of concrete for its maintenance which in turn will fuel product demand in the region in the forecast timeframe. North America market will grow by more than 5% CAGR during the forecast timeframe.

Asia Pacific is the fastest growing market owing to the high construction and infrastructure spending in countries such as China, India, Japan, etc. Building & construction activities has also gained momentum in the region due to increasing industrialization & urbanization. The construction of new airports, dockyards, tunnels and highways in the Asia Pacific countries will contribute in boosting rapid strength concrete industry growth by 2024.

Competitive Market Share

The major players in rapid strength concrete market share include Aggregate Industries, Boral Limited, Bostik, CEMEX S.A.B. de C.V, Sakrete, Perimeter Concrete, Short Load Concrete, Sika Corporation, Instarmac, Westbuild Group, BASF, Perimeter Concrete, Holcim, CTS Cements, Tarmac, Evecrete India, and others. The industry has a significant number of manufacturers spread across the globe. Companies are using acquisitions and mergers strategies along with new product development to enhance their market competitiveness.
