Summary
US demand to rise 6.5 annually through 2018 US
demand for precast concrete products is forecast
to rise 6.5 percent per annum to 12.2 billion in
2018, stimulated by a rebound in construction
expenditures. During the 2008-2013 period, demand
for precast concrete products declined as
construction of buildings and nonbuilding
structures languished. Precast concrete products
demand will also be boosted by their ability to
reduce the time and expense of construction
projects. Precast concrete products are made and
tested in factory-like conditions to meet
specific performance properties, such as enhanced
resistance to moisture or freeze/thaw cycles. In
contrast, site-poured or cast-inplace concrete
may cure improperly and need replacement, causing
delays and cost overruns. While more costly than
site-poured concrete, steel, or wood building
products, precast concrete components often have
longer lifespans and offer superior structural
strength.

Architectural components to be fastest growing
types Among the different product types,
structural and architectural building components
are forecast to exhibit the strongest demand
advances going forward, fueled by the sharp
increases in building construction spending
through 2018. Rising construction of office and
commercial structures, manufacturing plants, and
multifamily housing units will boost demand for
precast concrete slabs, structural supports, and
stairs, steps, and ramps. Demand for
architectural building components will also rise
at a rapid rate, as a more favorable lending
environment will make it easier for home and
business owners to refurbish properties by
installing decorative facades, roofing tiles, and
siding.

Nonresidential market to see fastest gains in
demand Nonresidential building construction
applications accounted for the largest share of
precast concrete product 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. 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 is
forecast to see above average growth in precast
concrete products demand 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.

Demand for precast concrete products in the
nonbuilding market is expected to rise modestly
through 2018. Advances will be supported by a
need to repair the nations aging network of
bridges, highways, roads, water and sewer
systems, and power distribution grids. Precast
concrete products will often be specified due to
their desirable performance properties. However,
more rapid gains will be restrained by tepid
growth in government spending, which will limit
the funds available for infrastructure
construction. Study coverage This study,
Precast Concrete Products, presents historical
demand data (2003, 2008, 2013) as well as
forecasts (2018, 2023) by product, market, and US
region. The study also considers market
environment factors, evaluates company market
share and profiles 40 industry players such as
Cemex, CRH, HeidelbergCement and Metromont.
