The global concrete repair mortars market size was estimated at USD 2.5 billion in 2019 and is expected to register a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.7 % from 2020 to 2027. Increasing investments in housing & transport infrastructure development and maintenance & renovation of existing building structures are projected to drive the market growth. The properties associated with concrete repair mortars, such as impermeability, tensile strength, stress immunity, and thixotropy, are likely to boost their demand as an important construction material over the projected period. In addition, the development of advanced mortar admixtures by top chemical companies is further expected to enhance the properties of these repair materials.

In addition, the development of advanced mortar admixtures by top chemical companies is further expected to enhance the properties of these repair materials.
The product is used in several areas that require concrete repair, such as structural defects in buildings on account of extreme variations in temperature. In addition, they also offer resistance against corrosion to internal structural supports, resulting from unwanted water inflow. As a result, this material prevents the degradation of the structure, thereby extending its lifespan. Moreover, this material has excellent bond strength that results in the increased structural strength of the buildings.
Heavy investments by the governments across various countries for the development of marine structures, long-lasting buildings, and roads are expected to heighten the infrastructure repair and maintenance activities. This, in turn, is projected to positively influence the growth of the overall market during the forecast period.
Product demand is expected to rise owing to its applications in the construction industry for restoring structural strength and architectural shape of old buildings. In addition, it can be used for restarting the incomplete work of old buildings that deteriorate over time. Concrete repair mortars are widely used in high-stress applications, such as parking lots and highway bridges, owing to their high tensile strength and crack-resistant properties.
Polymer Modified Cementitious (PMC) mortar type held the largest market share of over 87% in 2019. The segment is estimated to retain its leading position expanding at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Superior properties offered by the PMC mortars, such as resistance to chemical ingress, waterproofing, considerable durability, and toughness, are expected to drive their demand.
These materials are widely used in the construction of structures using bricks and building blocks, such as walls, walkways, and fences. Mortars are more prone to deterioration and damage than structural bricks, thereby forming a common point for concrete repair. As a result, it leads to a higher demand for repair materials in full restorations as well as touch repairs.
The epoxy-based materials are also one of the most popular categories. This type of specially formulated epoxy material is highly used for the repair of cracked or eroded concrete flooring. The epoxy-based material offers permanent repair to the damaged concrete with exceptional strength. Moreover, fast curing properties coupled with applicability in cracks greater than 50 mm depth make it an ideal material for a broader range of applications.
The hand/trowel method led the market in 2019 with a share of over 54%. The segment is projected to expand further at the fastest CAGR from 2020 to 2027 on account of the method’s versatility in both vertical and horizontal repair of buildings. In addition, the hand/trowel method is effective for both non-structural as well as structural repairs. It also offers high functionality in filling gaps or cracks having a repair depth of 15 to 70 mm. These factors are expected to drive the segment growth over the next eight years.
Customizations in other processes can be expensive and cause wastage, resulting in a preference for manual methods. However, the emerging trend of automation in the construction sector is likely to supplement the growth of the pouring and spraying application methods. This, in turn, is expected to restrain the growth of the manual application segment over the forecast period.
The rapidly expanding construction sector coupled with labor shortage concerns across the globe is shifting the trend from manual applications to automated applications. Following the aforementioned trend, several companies have developed advanced mortar spraying machines, which, in turn, are projected to drive the spraying application method segment.
The structural grade segment led the global market in 2019 and accounted for 60% of the overall share. Structural-grade concretes offer high-strength properties for carrying the structural load and forms an integral part of a structure. Non-structural concretes exhibit comparatively low strength and are applied for temporary loading and small compression.
The growing need for repair and maintenance of building infrastructure due to the degradation of materials and structures, caused by the combined effect of loading and environmental factors, is expected to drive the structural-grade segment.
In addition, rapid deterioration of the infrastructure coupled with exponentially rising replacement costs has propelled the demand for repair materials across the globe. Furthermore, the development of advanced repair and rehabilitation processes for structural concrete is projected to positively impact the overall market growth.
The non-structural concrete repairs are expected to account for a fair share of the overall market as they are widely used in repairs of elements, such as cladding and fences. However, owing to a lesser strength, these concretes are prone to damage, which requires frequent touch repairs as well as full restorations.
The road infrastructure segment led the market in 2019 and held over 55% of the global share. Governments across the globe are focusing on improving their transport infrastructure to cut down the overall transportation cost as well as time. In addition, the 2030 Agenda of sustainable development signed by the UN member countries in 2015, also aims to improve road conditions in their respective countries to significantly reduce the number of road accidents.
The aforementioned factors have shifted the focus of governments towards improving the road infrastructure in their respective countries. These factors will also lead to the construction of new road infrastructure, which, in turn, is expected to boost the demand for mortars in the road infrastructure segment.
Marine structures are also expected to account for a fair market share with a rapid rise in global trade. Maritime activities have emerged as the major drivers of economic growth as they provide natural resources and access to transport and trade. Thus, several economies are emphasizing improving their marine infrastructure to enhance their economic growth prospects.
The Asia Pacific led the global market in 2019 accounting for over 35% of the overall share. It is also expected to be the fastest-growing regional market from 2020 to 2027. The growth is attributed to the rising population, which puts pressure on the existing infrastructure resulting in deterioration of the structure and creating demand for repair materials.
In addition, emerging economies in APAC, such as India, are heavily investing in transport infrastructure development as a part of their economic development initiatives. It is expected to lead to the development of new and existing infrastructures, thereby ramping up the infrastructure repair and maintenance activities, which, in turn, will drive the market growth. The European regional market is likely to generate significant demand for repair mortars due to the presence of several old buildings that require repair and renovation.
North America is also projected to have significant growth. In 2019, the U.S. president intended to spend approximately USD 2 trillion to fix the country’s aging infrastructure. This plan is expected to include the repair of damaged roads, bridges, and highways with an expenditure of over USD 1 trillion. This, in turn, is expected to boost the demand for concrete repair materials in the region.
Key market players are continuously improving the mortar compositions to incorporate superior properties in the repair materials. Companies, such as Saint Gobain Weber and Sika AG, are investing heavily in the synthesis of epoxy resins at low cost, to lower the cost of epoxy-based mortars, which are considered to be a better alternative compared to cementitious mortars. In May 2019, Sika AG acquired Parex USA, Inc. to cater to the increasing demand for this material in the urban areas of North & Central America.
