Prestressed Concrete Market Size

ID: MRFR//6037-CR | 328 Pages | Author: Tejas Chaudhary| November 2019

The dynamics of the pre-stressed concrete industry are a function of various variables. Among other things, how well the overall construction segment is doing is an important factor to take into account given that precast concrete is widely utilized in numerous infrastructure projects. What drives and constrains construction activity depends largely on the state of the economy. Prestressing concrete becomes more appealing when there is a rise in building projects as it happens during periods of economic growth. Conversely, decelerated constructions due to economic recessions can adversely affect its market.

There are also technological changes impacting greatly on pre-stressed concrete which impact the market. Modern materials and methods may make prestressed concrete more effective, durable, and cheaper. Improvements in technology have led to more complex processes being employed by manufacturers with regard to this material thereby altering competition within this sector.

The prices and availability of raw materials significantly influence the market for precast concrete. These include high strength steel and cement amongst others which are changed by factors like demand and supply patterns in the market. The cost or scarcity of these raw materials may directly impact the production costs of those engaged in producing prestress concrete, leading to changes in the pricing of products as well as competitive positioning within markets.

Important considerations that should be noted while targeting any given market includes urbanization trends versus infrastructure development. Among these long-lasting building materials, prestressed concrete has become highly demanded by many nations and regions that are investing heavily into their infrastructural facilities. Prestressed concrete comes out as ideal choice for mega projects such as bridges, roads among other commercial developments arising from increased inflow into cities because of its structural advantages.

Finally, external factors such as geopolitical developments or international trade laws might have an influence on the pre-stressed concrete market. International trade disputes, tariffs or unsteady geopolitical situations lead to supply chain disruptions that will affect price levels or outputs. These forces must be kept in mind if companies aim at overcoming these challenges and capitalizing on opportunities in the market for pre-stressed concrete in an increasingly globalized industry.

Prestressed Concrete Market Trends

  • The need for reduced construction time and cost-effective products is driving market growth.

Precast concrete construction offers significant time savings and cost reductions. Manufacturing components in controlled factory environments allows adjustments to be easily made, and real-time monitoring is possible. Compared to cast-in-situ construction, precast construction uses fewer resources like cement, steel, water, energy, and labor, reducing waste both in the factory and at the construction site. Precast construction allows for the production of building components before the foundation is completed, enabling faster assembly. Modular constructions can be completed and assembled in four to eight weeks, whereas conventional on-site construction takes twice as long. This construction method delivers improved quality, productivity, and waste reduction, making it more cost-effective and preferable for end users. This factor drives the market CAGR.

Additionally, Government organizations in emerging countries are investing heavily in developing commercial and industrial infrastructure, expanding the precast concrete market. The demand for precast concrete is also increasing due to remodeling and renovation projects in non-residential spaces, including hotels and resorts. Additionally, industry players are making significant investments in industrial construction, driving the adoption of precast concrete and creating new market opportunities. Thus, driving the Prestressed Concrete market revenue.

Prestressed Concrete MarketSegment Insights

Prestressed Concrete Type Insights

The  Prestressed Concrete market segmentation, based on type, includes pre-tensioning. The pre-tensioning segment dominated the market due to its inherent efficiency, cost-effectiveness, and structural performance advantages. Pre-tensioning involves prestressing the steel reinforcement before pouring the concrete, resulting in superior load-bearing capacity, durability, and resistance to cracks. Moreover, it allows for producing thinner and longer concrete elements, reducing material usage and construction time.

Prestressed Concrete Wires Insights

Based on concrete wires, the  Prestressed Concrete market segmentation includes Above 7 Wires,Up to 3 Wires, and 7 Wires. The above 7 wires segment dominated the market; due to increased wires, prestressed concrete exhibits higher tensile strength, enabling it to bear heavier loads and provide improved structural stability.

Prestressed Concrete Product Insights

Based on Product, the  Prestressed Concrete market segmentation includes uncoated and galvanized PC strands. The uncoated PC strand segment dominated the market; its cost-effectiveness and wide availability. Uncoated PC strands are economically advantageous compared to coated strands, making them a preferred choice for construction projects with budget constraints.
