“The precast concrete market is expected to be led by the beams segment during the forecast period.”

Columns and Beams had the largest market share in the precast concrete market by element. Precast columns and beams are widely used in the residential and non-residential sectors, as well as in building and non-building structures. Factors such as rising public and private infrastructure spending, particularly in emerging economies such as APAC, South America, and the Middle East, and rising demand for residential construction due to rapid urbanisation have all contributed to the rise in demand for precast columns and beams.

“During the forecast period, elemental construction is expected to be the largest segment in the precast concrete market.”

In terms of value and volume, elemental construction accounted for the highest demand for precast concrete in 2021. Columns and beams, as well as floors and roofs, are precast concrete elements that are used in a variety of residential, non-residential, and infrastructure applications. This expansion can be attributed to factors such as increased interest from contractors and builders in using individual precast elements to build an entire structure across residential and non-residential construction sectors, as well as an increase in public and private investment in global infrastructure development, particularly in Asia Pacific and South American emerging economies.

“During the forecast period, non-residential precast concrete dominated the market.”

In terms of value and volume, non-residential was the end-use sector with the highest demand for precast concrete in 2021. This sector’s demand is being bolstered by increased investment in new commercial construction projects. Durability, low maintenance, cost-effectiveness, and shorter construction time will drive demand for precast concrete in new projects.

“During the forecast period, the APAC region is expected to account for the largest share of the precast concrete market.”

From 2022 to 2027, the APAC region is expected to lead the precast concrete market in terms of value and volume. Growing population, rapid urbanization, and the construction industry are among the key factors driving regional industry expansion. New building constructions with improved energy-efficient solutions for the residential and commercial sectors are fueling demand for precast concrete in several APAC countries.
