Global Precast Construction Market to Surpass US$ 170 Bn by 2026

Precast Construction Market – Snapshot

Precast construction is a process where concrete is casted in a reusable mold or ‘form,’ which is then cured in a controlled environment and is transported to the construction site for installation. There are different types of precast construction systems for architectural application purposes. They differ in size, function, and price. The usage of precast elements eliminates the need for conventional formworks. Precast elements also mitigate the amount of waste generated and check other environmental hazards. They further provide a safe working platform to workers. Precast products are manufactured in a casting area where critical factors, such as temperature, mix design, and stripping time, can be closely checked and controlled.

This ensures that the quality of precast products is better than that of cast-in-situ concrete products. Additionally, precast products help in saving a significant amount of money by eliminating rectification work. Furthermore, due to a factory-controlled environment, different combinations of colors and textures can be applied easily to architectural or structural pieces. Precast concrete is primarily used in the construction of buildings with repetitive designs and elements, such as schools and apartments. It provides architects with an exciting medium while designing facades for a wide range of buildings, such as health care facilities, commercial buildings, and stadiums.

Building & Construction Industry to Impact Precast Construction Market

Rise in investment in the building & construction industry, owing to various government-backed welfare housing schemes has boosted demand for precast construction during recent times. In addition, factors such as an increase in disposable income and a rise in the purchase of houses have propelled demand for precast construction. Furthermore, rebuilding, refurbishing, and renovation of old buildings have boosted investments in the building & construction industry, thereby augmenting demand for precast construction. Low interest rates in housing have also led to investments in the building & construction industry, thus propelling demand for precast construction.

Floor & Roof System Segment to Dominate the Precast Construction Market

In terms of structure system, the floor & roof system segment constituted a major share of the global precast construction market in 2017. Floor & roof systems enable large span capacity, besides providing excellent sound transmission and heat resistance characteristics. They provide load distribution properties and are ideally used in garages, gymnasiums, paper mills, office & commercial buildings, industrial buildings (food processing industry, paper mills), condominiums, apartments, hotels, educational institutions, sewage & water treatment plants, etc.. They are also used as thermal mass to reduce the need for air conditioning. The floor & roof system segment is expected to expand rapidly, due to the high adoption rate of floor & roof systems in the precast construction market.
