Ready-mix Concrete Market Size & Trends

The global ready-mix concrete market size was valued at USD 819.92 billion in 2022 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% from 2023 to 2030. Increasing demand for speedy construction activities for residential, commercial, industrial, and infrastructure segments is expected to drive the market for ready-mix concrete (RMC). Benefits such as reduced cost for labor and sight supervision coupled with easy pouring methods involved in ready-mix construction are anticipated to attract more consumers in the coming period. Increasing investments in the construction industry in the economies of Mexico, China, India, Singapore, and South Korea are expected to support the demand.

U.S. ready-mix concrete Market size and growth rate, 2023 - 2030

In the U.S., the demand for ready-mix concrete is anticipated to witness an ascending trend owing to the high potential in the residential construction segment. Increasing demand for single-family housing backed by the population increase in household construction, strong economic growth, and low mortgage rates are expected to emerge as the key factors contributing to the growth of the residential construction sector. This, in turn, is influencing the market for ready-mix concrete.

Ready-mix concrete is widely accepted for the construction of manufacturing facilities, residential and commercial buildings, power generation facilities, and road construction. Development in infrastructure segments across the globe coupled with rapid urbanization is the primary factor anticipated to drive industry growth over the projected time.

The product is widely being used as a substitute for traditional concrete on account of greater convenience, ease of use, and enhanced quality. Moreover, low inventory cost, wastage reduction, and efficient utilization are likely to lower the overall project cost. Thus, is likely to impact the demand on a positive note.

The ready-mix concrete needs specialized vehicles that transport the concrete from the mixing plant to the construction site, thus, imposing higher transportation costs. However, the installation of mixing plants at the construction site can reduce the transportation cost as well as the total time taken for the construction process.

Increasing investments across the globe in light of urban development, government infrastructure plans, and a growing population that demands residential and commercial structures are likely to raise market growth. Indian government’s plan to invest heavily in infrastructural development for 100 smart cities is anticipated to create growth opportunities for the ready-mix concrete market.

Application Insights

The residential segment held the largest revenue share of 34.0% in 2022 as a result of high consumption owing to its unique properties. The segment is likely to witness higher growth in the estimated time on account of ascending demand for single-family houses in Asia Pacific and European countries.

Rapidly growing population and ascending disposable income levels in India and China are expected to drive the demand for residential structures over the coming years. This, in turn, is likely to affect the market positively for ready-mix concrete. Industrial development in the Asia Pacific coupled with favorable government policies has attracted several manufacturers to establish their plants in the region, which in turn, is anticipated to upscale the demand for ready-mix concrete.

The infrastructure segment is expected to register the fastest growth at a CAGR of 6.2% over the forecast period owing to the development in road construction, dams, water conservation systems, and expansion of airports. Expanding budget allocations for infrastructure development by local governments is likely to provide additional impetus to the growth of the market for ready-mix concrete.

Increasing spending in commercial construction including shopping malls, office buildings, hotels, restaurants, institutional buildings, hospitals, medical centers, supermarkets, and departmental stores is likely to aid the market for ready-mix concrete. Commercial construction requires large and speedy construction components, thus supporting the demand for ready-mix concrete.

Regional Insights

Asia Pacific dominated the market and accounted for the largest revenue share of 69.7% in 2022. Rapid infrastructural development in Thailand, Singapore, India, and China is projected to support the demand for ready-mix concrete in construction operations.

Government reforms to develop the road infrastructure in China and India in order to flourish the industrial development in the region are anticipated to positively impact the industry. New construction related to factories and industrial centers in the region coupled with urban development and housing growth projected to surge the demand for ready-mix concrete.
