Increasing urbanization and rising disposable income

The ongoing development both in terms of economy and infrastructure in countries such as Malaysia, India, Vietnam, China, and Qatar is positively impacting the demand for readymade concrete mix, thereby driving the market,” says Hitesh Bhatia, a lead analyst at Technavio for glass and ceramics research.

The time constraints placed upon infrastructure development projects in the urbanized economies is creating a high demand for readymade concrete mixes. Also, ready-mix concrete provides reduced shrinkage, cracking tendencies and volume change, leading to its increased adoption.

Increase in demand for concrete additives

Ready-mix concrete with various additives to improve acceleration or retardation of setting time, concrete quality, and manageability is in high demand due to the varied requirements of modern infrastructure development projects. The global concrete additives market has been growing at a CAGR of more than 4%. Concrete additives are also encouraging innovation in design while improving the strength, quality, appearance, and durability of the finished concrete. The increasing use of these additives by ready-mix concrete manufacturers will attract more consumers toward using ready-mix concrete, thereby driving the market growth.

Increase in demand for concrete in APAC

APAC is home to several swiftly growing economies such as India, Singapore, Indonesia, China, and Thailand, which is creating a rising demand for new and improved public and private infrastructure. This is creating a direct demand for ready-mix concrete and driving the market growth,” says Hitesh.

The growing number of infrastructure projects such as dams, roads, bridges, and airport expansion work, especially in developing countries, such as India, China, Indonesia, and Vietnam, is fueling the demand for ready-mix concrete. Also, government initiatives to attract foreign companies to invest in establishing and developing industrial areas is expected to impact the demand for ready-mix concrete.
