“Growing awareness to use high-performance polymers in concrete and increased spending on repair & maintenance and infrastructural activities is driving the growth of the polymer concrete market”
The global polymer concrete market is estimated at USD 448.1 million in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 641.9 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 7.5% between 2017 and 2022. The market is witnessing growth due to the growing awareness regarding the use of polymers in concrete due to their high functionality and advanced properties. Increase in spending on repair & maintenance and growth in infrastructural activities in emerging economies are also some of the factors driving the market for polymer concrete. Factors such as increasing use of recycled polymeric products in polymer concrete and establishment of public-private partnerships offer lucrative opportunities for the growth of the polymer concrete market. Higher cost of polymer concrete than the traditional Portland cement is a major factor restraining the growth of the market. High raw material cost and unstable economic cycles are some of the factors challenging the growth of the global polymer concrete market globally.
“Containments: The fastest-growing segment of the polymer concrete market, by application”
Containments is estimated to be the fastest-growing application segment of the polymer concrete market during the forecast period. Containments are used to curb, channelize, and drain chemical fluids or liquids. The growth in chemical manufacturing industries in emerging countries of Asia Pacific is expected to drive the demand for polymer concrete for containments application.
“Polyester: The fastest-growing segment of the polymer concrete market, by type”
Polyester is estimated to be the fastest-growing type segment of the polymer concrete market during the forecast period (2017-2022). Polyester-based polymer concrete have high mechanical and electrical insulating properties due to which they are used in various precast and cast-in-place applications in construction works, sanitary unit products, public and commercial buildings, cladding materials for bathrooms, and chemical-resistant floors.
“Asia Pacific: The fastest-growing market for polymer concrete, by region”
The Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the fastest-growing market for polymer concrete during the forecast period. The growth of the polymer concrete market in Asia Pacific is due to the growing urban population and their increasing disposable income. These factors have led to the wide-scale construction of residential and non-residential complexes. Thus, the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the demand for polymer concrete in Asia Pacific.
