Global Self-Healing Concrete Market Overview


Self-Healing Concrete Market Size was valued at USD 49181.42 Million in 2023. The Self-Healing Concrete industry is projected to grow from USD 52279.85 Million in 2024 to USD 98937.75 Million by 2032, exhibiting a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 8.3% during the forecast period (2024 - 2032). The self-healing concrete market is defined by self-healing agents that are synthetically created and have the exclusive capability of automatically healing the damage and cracks. These products can repair their cracks autogenously or autonomously. The rapid infrastructure development and growing urbanization are the major factors driving the growth of the Self-Healing Concrete Market. The self-healing concrete has wide application in bridges, dams, tunnels, etc. where concrete, the major construction material, is subjected to constant stress.   Therefore, with a growing emphasis on the development of public infrastructure the market of this concrete will also get a boost. Moreover, increasing construction activities of residential and commercial buildings are also likely to generate huge demand for self-healing concrete as it will help in reducing their maintenance cost. Moreover, the growing emphasis on the use of durable and eco-friendly construction materials will bring better prospects for the self-healing concrete market.

Self-Healing Concrete Market Trends




  • Growth in the construction industry boosts demand for Self-Healing Concrete.




The construction industry continues to grow at a moderate pace in the context of a global economy that is showing signs of a slight deceleration. Growth will be concentrated in a handful of countries, such as China, India, US, and Indonesia accounting for some 58% of projected global expansion. By the end of the forecast period, China is expected to become the top construction sector and India will be the third-largest, overtaking Japan in the short term, while Indonesia will surpass Germany, UK, and Japan to become fourth largest by the end of the forecast period. In North America and Europe, renovation activities push the growth of the construction sector through the short and medium-term. The growing urban population in the developing regions is mainly driving the growth of the construction in the industry. Factors influencing the growth of the sector in developing countries include population increases in these countries, increased residential development, and expected investments in infrastructure and industrial development in these countries. The growing construction sector and increasing demand for new residential buildings is augmenting the growth of self-healing concrete that offers higher quality. Thus, the demand for self-healing concrete is expected to increase by considering the overall long-term outlook for the global construction industry.


Rising awareness about the benefits of self-healing concrete


Self-healing concretes reduce the need to detect and repair cracks and are one strategy to address corrosion risk. This has social, economic, and environmental benefits, reducing the need for maintenance and increasing longevity reduces disruption, as well as the cost and use of materials. It can last decades or centuries. Concrete’s ability to heal reduces the need to detect and repair cracks that may otherwise lead to corrosion of reinforcement and deterioration of the concrete. This reduces costs, while boosting durability. This is the biggest advantage of self-healing concrete. Self -healing concrete decreases concrete maintenance. In normal concrete, there is a need to fill and seal the cracks; however, self-healing concrete does not need filling and sealing. In addition, compared to normal concrete it has better compressive and flexural strength and has good resistance against freeze-thaw attacks. In addition, concrete permeability is also low for self-healing concrete. With the growing awareness about the guarantee of structural durability, and higher service life, self-healing concrete will thus gain greater demand over the forecast period.


Self-Healing Concrete Market Segment Insights


Self-Healing Concrete Form Insights


Based on the form, the Self-Healing Concrete Market is segmented into Intrinsic and Extrinsic.  The extrinsic form segment is expected to dominate the Self-Healing Concrete Market during the forecast period. In the extrinsic forms, the healing elements are separated from the surrounding polymer in microcapsules or vascular networks which, after material cracking, release their content into the crack plane, reacting and allowing the restoration of material functionalities. Extrinsic forms include vascular, and capsule based self-healing concrete. Vascular self-healing of concrete is a bio-inspired technique in which a network of hollow tubes, filled with a healing agent, is embedded in the concrete. Among the different techniques, this technique is chosen because of its potential for multiple healing. The vascular network allows for a continuous supply of healing agent to damaged locations within a material, can address different magnitudes of damage, and could be pressurized, thus further increasing healing agent distribution. However, capsule-based self-healing concrete is expected to witness notable growth over the forecast period owing to the ease of convenience the technique offers for large-scale usage.

Self-Healing Concrete End-use Insights


Based on the end-use, the Self-Healing Concrete Market has been bifurcated into Residential, Commercial, Industrial, and Civil Infrastructure. In 2022, the civil infrastructure end-use segment account for the largest market share. Self-healing concretes are mostly used in the construction of bridges and all road constructions as they often experience small-sized cracks due to heavy loads and constantly need maintenance. Furthermore, investments in green infrastructure, sustainable’ infrastructural projects, and renewable sectors such as geothermal, biomass, hydroelectric, solar, and wind are witnessing continued growth in the coming years. Thus, with the rise in the construction activities in the infrastructural sector, the demand for self-healing concrete is also expected to rise subsequently in the coming years.
