Precast Concrete Products

Precast concrete has several advantages over competing materials, such as metal and site-poured or cast-in-place concrete. Precast concrete products can be installed quickly (as curing has already been completed at the plant), are made in factory-like settings that allow for more accurate and precise production than site-made components, and have longer lifespans than many competing materials. However, precast concrete products tend to be more costly, which limits more significant growth in demand.

Nonresidential building is largest market

Nonresidential building construction accounts for over half of demand. Nonresidential buildings are intensive users of precast structural building components, which are valued for their strength and uniformity, allowing structures to be built quickly. Many nonresidential structures also use precast architectural building components -- which can offer lower cost alternatives to decorative building products such as clay roof tiles and natural stone façades -- and other products such as grease interceptors and utility vaults. Ongoing robust advances in office and commercial construction as well as a healthy uptick in institutional construction will be the primary drivers of nonresidential building demand.

Residential market shows fastest growth

The ongoing rebound in new single-family home construction as well as continued elevated levels of multifamily home construction will spur growth in the residential market. Multifamily housing, which is often constructed in a manner similar to office and commercial buildings, commonly uses precast structural building components, while single-family houses may use precast architectural building components such as fencing and roofing tiles, as well as other products such as septic tanks.

Structural building components largest product type

Among product types, structural building components make up the largest share of demand, at about two-fifths of the total; architectural building components account for the next largest share, at one-fifth of demand. Structural building components and water and waste handling products can expect the fastest rates of growth through 2020.

Precast Concrete Products has historical data for 2005, 2010, and 2015, with forecasts for 2020 and 2025. Products covered by the study include: structural building components, architectural building components, transportation products, water and waste handling products, utility products, and cemetery products.
