Report Overview

The global precast concrete market size was estimated at USD 89.3 billion in 2019 and is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.3% from 2020 to 2027. The rising prominence of offsite construction to reduce the material wastage and to increase efficiency is anticipated to drive the growth. Rapid industrialization and urbanization in emerging economies focus on the development of high-quality infrastructure around the world, emphasis on green building projects are the major factors driving the market. In addition, availability of low-cost raw material and strong demand from consumer and domestic industries are expected to aid the growth.

The U.S. is expected to witness substantial growth in terms of demand for precast concrete. The segment is anticipated to register a CAGR of 5.2% over the forecast period, attributed to rising demand for the expansion of floor space in various industries leading to the rise in new construction and renovation projects. In addition, an increasing number of large-scale infrastructure investment projects are expected to aid the market growth in the country.

U.S. precast concrete Market

Rising popularity of precast construction is anticipated to generate high demand for cement, which in turn, is likely to result in extensive mining activities causing environmental issues in many countries. Furthermore, stringent government regulations and policies are expected to hamper the production of cement on large scale, which may adversely affect the market in near future.

Cement and aggregates are the primary raw materials used for the production of precast concrete. Hence, fluctuations in there are expected to have a negative impact on product prices. However, increasing use of concrete additives to strengthen durability of the structure is projected to benefit the product demand.

Presence of a large number of suppliers and regional players results in low switching costs. Factors, such as product differentiation and technological innovation are anticipated to assist suppliers to gain an advantage in the increasingly competitive market. However, the cost of switching the precast concrete product suppliers is anticipated to be low.

Product Insights

Structural building components are projected to exhibit the fastest CAGR 6.7% from 2020 to 2027, owing to extensive use of the product in various building and construction projects. The segment includes products such as pillars, columns, and joint that are widely used in construction and is majorly used in construction of industrial sheds and manufacturing plants.

Architectural building components are widely used in residential construction. Rising demand for affordable housing on account of rapidly growing middle-class population in developing countries such as China, India, and Indonesia is anticipated to drive the product demand over the forecast period.

Transportation product segment is estimated to account for USD 31.3 billion by 2027 and is expected to witness substantial growth over the forecast period. These products are widely used in construction of bridges, highway, railways, tunnels, and flyovers. The huge spending on road and rail connectivity and rising number of airports and ports is expected to spur demand for transportation products over the forecast period.

The growing demand for decorative items to enhance the aesthetic value of the interiors of residential and commercial buildings is likely to drive the demand for precast concrete over the forecast period. In addition, growing demand for precast structures in specialty construction operations is expected to drive the product demand in construction applications.

End-use Insights

Residential construction dominated the global precast concrete market in 2019 and is expected to expand at a CAGR of 5.5% over the forecast period. The growth can be attributed to the rising disposable income and revival of U.S. housing construction. In addition, a rise in government initiatives for affordable housing is predicted to aid the product demand over the forecast period.

Significant investment in infrastructure and real estate development is offering lucrative market opportunities for precast concrete. The emphasis on infrastructure and residential needs, particularly in emerging nations has resulted in a considerable flow of private and government investment in these sectors.

Global precast concrete Market

The growth in nonresidential construction sector is largely driven by the hospitality construction industry. Robust growth in the tourism industry has created demand for construction of new hotels. The segment is estimated to reach USD 47.8 billion by 2027, owing to an increase in spending on construction activities in educational institutions and office spaces.

Infrastructural construction includes construction of roads, bridges, ports, and aviation infrastructure. The segment is anticipated to witness significant growth, owing to huge spending by developing and developed countries on public infrastructure development. In addition, initiatives to connect trade routes are expected to benefit the market growth.

Regional Insights

Increased construction activity in Europe on account of low mortgage rates is expected to propel the demand for precast concrete. However, high labor costs may negatively influence construction industry, which, in turn, is expected to lead to sluggish market growth. The precast concrete market in Europe accounted for USD 22.2 billion and is expected to witness significant growth for the next eight years.

The rapidly growing construction industry in developed economies in North America coupled with rising demand for sustainable and advanced construction practices are anticipated to drive the product demand. Rapid commercial growth of the region is likely to open new avenues for various industries to expand markets.

The market in Asia Pacific is expected to witness the fastest CAGR of 8.3% over the projected period, on account of rising urbanization, resulting in increased investments in transport systems, ports, roadways, and mega-factories. Rapidly developing economies, along with expansion of industrial construction is expected to drive the demand for precast concrete.

The growth in construction industry in Central and South America is attributed to private capital infrastructure developments due to public-private partnerships coupled with increasing per capita income in the region. The increasing construction activities in region are anticipated to bolster the regional market growth over the forecast period.

Precast Concrete Market Share Insights

The market exhibits intense competition, with participants emphasizing on cost-efficient and superior quality product. Proximity to the customers is one of the key selection criteria for the end-users. Hence, the end users prefer procuring products from local manufacturers, encouraging key players to focus on expanding their geographical footprint.
