Translucent Concrete Market Synopsis


Translucent Concrete Market was valued at USD 1.2 Million in 2018 and is expected to witness a CAGR of around 16.2% during the forecast period.


In the construction sector, concrete as a building material is a very important factor that acts as a backbone for building structure. Skyscrapers and high-rise buildings are popular in metropolitan areas across the world, especially in countries with dense populations. This is attributed to the demand for maximum space utilization and also because of the economic development of the world. Nowadays, artistic designs and reputation of concrete leaves behind much to be demanded despite of popularity and versatilely. Translucent concrete, on the other hand, is a building material manufactured using translucent cement and optical materials which caters to light transmissive properties. Translucent concrete also called transparent concrete was first introduced by Aron Losonczi in 2001 which was later also named as literacy concrete in 2003.


 The global market for translucent concrete has been witnessing high growth in the past couple of years. The demand for translucent concrete is expected to be driven by increasing demand for high esthetic designs and innovative building construction. However, translucent concrete buildings demand high capital investments, in which only translucent concrete cost or literacy costs dominate the cost structure of the building.


The global market for translucent concrete market is expected to grow with a significant pace as it makes energy efficient design to buildings coupled aiding the artistic décor of the structure. Moreover, the translucent concrete buildings require heavy capital cost and skilled labors which is anticipated to hinder the market growth during the forecast period. Moreover, the introduction and utilization of translucent concrete is expected to create an opportunity for the translucent concrete manufacturers in the translucent concrete market.
