Drivers & Restraints
Increasing Demand for Commercial and Residential Spaces to Propel Growth
Increasing population, growing industries and businesses, and the rising need for residential and commercial spaces are the key factors promoting the precast concrete market growth. In addition to this, rapid urbanization and industrialization have propelled the demand for construction activities. This has led to a rise in the expenditure for construction activities, thereby augmenting growth.
On the contrary, certain drawbacks may pull down this market in the future. These include the environmental and health concerns concerning cement manufacturing. It is believed that cement production releases many gases such as sulfur dioxide, carbon monoxide, and nitrogen oxide into the atmosphere. This may result in numerous environmental impacts such as global warming, depletion in the quality of water, and acid rain, among others. Besides this, there are several health issues such as visual impairment, asthma, and various cardiovascular diseases that may cause hindrance to the overall market in the coming years.
Building Components Segment Earned Major Share Attributed to Utilization in Construction Projects
Based on segmentation by product type, the building components segment gained the largest precast concrete market share. Growth of this segment is attributable to the increasing demand for cost-efficient quality houses at affordable prices that propelled a rise in the number of construction projects.
