Industry Insights

The global ready-mix concrete market size was worth USD 656.1 billion in 2019. The market is projected to register a 7.9% CAGR over the forecast duration, 2020 to 2027. Rapid construction activities in commercial, residential, and industrial sectors are driving the growth of the market. In addition, developing countries are witnessing significant growth in infrastructural activities, which in turn, projected to drive market growth.

Ready-mix concrete offers benefits such as easy pouring, reduced labor cost along sight supervision. These benefits are anticipated to drive the product demand shortly, as demand for timesaving construction activities is gaining traction. Countries such as China, Singapore, Mexico, South Korea, and India are making significant investments in construction activities, which is projected to spur the product demand.

U.S. ready-mix concrete markeThe acceptance of ready-mix concrete has surged over the past few years in the construction of commercial, residential, road, power generation, and manufacturing facilities. In addition, rapid urbanization coupled with infrastructural development is supplementing the growth of the market.

Ready-mix concrete is used as a substitute for traditional concrete. Its growing popularity is attributed to features such as enhanced quality, easy to use, and convenience. In addition, efficient utilization, wastage reduction, and low cost of inventory result in the lower overall cost of construction projects.

To transport the ready-mix concrete to the construction site from the mixing plant, specialized vehicles are needed, which results in a higher cost of transportation. This factor may restrain the growth of the market. However, in case of a bulk demand, the mixing plant can be installed near the construction site, which can reduce both time and the cost of transportation.

Application Insights

Based on the application, the residential construction category held the largest share in the ready mix concrete market occupying over 34.0% in 2019. Further, the segment is estimated to register robust growth primarily because of the increasing trend of nuclear families in regions such as Europe, North America, and the Asia Pacific.

Further, the rising population and increasing disposable income in countries such as China and India are anticipated to spur market growth shortly. The Asia Pacific is witnessing rapid growth in the development of industries owing to supporting government initiatives. This factor is further likely to bolster the product demand.

Global ready-mix concrete market

Over the past few years, investment in the construction of the commercial building such as offices, restaurants, malls, hospitals, supermarkets, and hotels have surged considerably. These commercial construction activities are required to be finished in a short period, thereby, driving the demand for ready-mix concrete.

On the other hand, infrastructure construction is likely to register the highest growth with an 8.4% CAGR over the next seven years. The growth is attributed to the rising construction of airports, roads, dams, and other construction sites. Governments across the globe are increasing the budgets for infrastructural development, which is likely to boost the demand for ready-mix concrete.

Regional Insights

The Asia Pacific accounted for over 69% share in the ready-mix concrete market in 2019 and emerged as the leading region. Further, the region is projected to register an 8.3% CAGR from 2020 to 2027. Increasing infrastructural development in countries such as China, India, Singapore, and Thailand is attributing to the growth of the region. In addition, governments in India and China are increasingly investing in the development of roads as part of their infrastructural development. Moreover, the Indian government has introduced the mission smart city in 2015 to develop 100 smart cities by 2023. Such initiatives are predicted to be the major boost for the ready-mix concrete.

North America, on the other hand, is witnessing robust growth, primarily because of increasing demand from the United States. Owing to the high growth potential in the residential sector, the United States is projected to witness significant demand for ready-mix concrete. Factors such as the rising trend of nuclear families and low mortgage rates are driving the demand for household construction in the country. Further, the country is witnessing increasing demand for ready-mix concrete owing to rapid infrastructural development.

Impact of COVID-19

The market has witnessed a sharp decline in demand owing to the outbreak of COVID-19. The pandemic has forced to close off various industrial operations including construction projects. Several construction projects were put on hold as governments implemented social distancing norms. Labor migration further hampered the industry.

However, governments across the globe are reopening the economy step-by-step. The construction projects have resumed, albeit slowly. With increasing support from the government, the market is projected to recover shortly.
