Precast Concrete Products

As Quoted In American City & County

Demand will be boosted by the time, expense, and quality advantages of precast concrete over more established materials, such as site-poured ready-mix concrete and steel.

US demand to rise 6.4% annually through 2018

US demand for precast concrete products is forecast to rise 6.4 percent per year to $12.2 billion in 2018, spurred by rebounding construction activity. Demand for precast concrete products will be boosted by their ability to reduce the time and expense of construction projects while also improving quality. This will enable precast concrete products to take market share from more established materials, such as site-poured ready-mix concrete and steel, often used in construction projects. Precast concrete components are more costly than building products made from site-poured concrete, steel, or wood, but often have longer lifespans and offer superior structural strength.

Nonresidential buildings to be fastest growing market

Nonresidential building construction applications accounted for the largest share of precast concrete products demand in 2013 and are expected to see the most rapid gains in demand going forward. Advances will be fueled by rebounding nonresidential building construction expenditures and rising interest in precast concrete products because of their performance properties, such as their ability to support the roofs of large-sized structures. Demand will also benefit from precast concrete products’ ability to mimic building materials that are more expensive and difficult to install, such as brick or natural stone. This characteristic will support the use of precast concrete decorative facades, siding, and door and window components.

The residential market for precast concrete is forecast to see above average annual growth through 2018. Strong gains in housing completions will spur demand for structural building components, while a more favorable lending environment will make it easier for homeowners to take out home equity loans to fund home improvement projects. This will boost demand for roofing tiles, siding, and fencing in improvement and repair projects.

Aging infrastructure to support nonbuilding uses

Demand for precast concrete products in the nonbuilding market is expected to rise modestly through 2018. Overall gains will be restrained by tepid growth in government spending, which will limit the funds available for infrastructure construction. However, advances will be supported by the need to repair the nation’s aging network of bridges, highways, roads, water and sewer systems, and power distribution grids. Precast concrete products -- such as bridge components, paving slabs, and manholes -- are often specified due to their desirable performance properties.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study analyzes the $8.9 billion US precast concrete products industry. It presents historical demand data (2003, 2008 and 2013) and forecasts (2018 and 2023) by product (e.g., structural building components, architectural building components, transportation products, water and waste handling products, utility products, cemetery products), market (nonresidential building, non building, residential, agricultural) and US region.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 34 industry competitors, including Oldcastle Precast, Coreslab International, and Metromont.
