Pune, June 14, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global ready-mix concrete market size is projected to reach USD 1,118.5 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 8.2% from 2020 - 2027.

The ready-mix concrete market outlook looks extremely promising, mainly due to the rapidly growing construction industries worldwide. Besides, the rising uses of ready-mix concrete in commercial constructions, alongside the high growth in the global economy and substantial investments in the development of ready-mix concrete, drive the market growth. 

With the vast demand and consumption of ready-mix concrete to build sustainable structures, the market share is estimated to accelerate further during the review period.

Most homebuyers prefer to use ready-mix concrete for its significant advantage over other concrete materials, such as cost-efficiency, high durability, ease-of-maintenance, and cost-savings. The construction industry is fostering its efforts to manage and reduce its carbon footprint affecting the environment severely. CO2 footprint is a paramount challenge in the development of concrete formulations. 

Many industry players are increasingly working on developing tailor-made admixtures that can combine technical performance and carbon footprint reduction. Like many markets associated with the construction industry, the ready-mix concrete industry was severely affected by the COVID-19 crisis. Lockdown mandates initiated by governments worldwide disrupted the global supply chain and halted exports of the raw materials, impacting production and sales.

Moreover, changing consumer buying patterns due to economic uncertainties affected the market demand. The market demand is gradually picking up as construction, and industrial activities are rapidly returning to normalcy. Furthermore, the reopening of various construction sites is driving the ready-mix concrete growth.


Rapid industrialization and urbanization worldwide impact the growth of the market positively, increasing construction activities. High strength and durability increase the uptake of ready-mix concrete in residential and commercial construction projects. Additionally, the proliferating construction industry in developed regions, alongside increased commercial and residential construction activities, boosts the ready-mix concrete market size. 

The global construction industry is led by the rise in disposable income and substantial government spending on huge infrastructural projects. Also, rising numbers of ready-mix concrete manufacturing plants in emerging countries define market landscape expansion.

Industry Trends

Favorable government policies for the production and initiatives for infrastructure development projects are major ready-mix concrete market trends. Moreover, huge R&D investments made by manufacturers in product development substantiate the ready-mix concrete market share. Emerging nations worldwide present many untapped opportunities for the market, heading with government mandates and updated policies.

On the other hand, the market still witnesses major setbacks, such as high initial investments required for production. Moreover, volatility in price and the demand-supply gap in raw materials required for production pose significant challenges for market growth. Also, stringent environmental norms in many countries could restrict market growth.

Nevertheless, favorable properties of ready-mixes allowing the optimization of the rise in compressive strength at an early stage would support market growth throughout the assessment period. Also, ready-mix concrete manufacturers that are continually bolstering their expertise in the field of low carbon impact concrete admixtures would push the market growth.
