The global self-compacting concrete (SCC) market is estimated to be USD 8.74 Billion in 2016, and is projected to reach USD 15.18 Billion by 2026, at a CAGR of 5.7% between 2016 and 2026. Growth of the self-compacting concrete market has been driven by varied factors, such as non-requirement of vibration processes in laying self-compacting concrete, significant reduction in maintenance, repairing, and overhauling (MRO) costs of self-compacting concrete, and limited impact on the environment.

Cement, aggregates (coarse aggregates and fine aggregates), mixing water, chemical admixtures (superplasticizers, viscosity modifying agents, and air entraining admixtures), and mineral admixtures (fly ash, ground granulated blast furnace slag, silica fume, and fibers) are key raw materials used in the manufacture of self-compacting concrete.

The combination type SCC is the second-largest and the fastest-growing type of design mix segment of the global self-compacting concrete market. The combination type SCC is created by adding a small amount of stabilizer to the powder type to balance moisture fluctuations in the manufacturing process.

The concrete frames segment accounted for the largest share of the global self-compacting concrete market in 2015. The trend of continuous improvement in the concrete frame industry is involved in the process of designing and constructing in-situ concrete frame buildings. This will improve efficiency and profitability of all those involved in supply chain for the construction of such buildings and increase the potential market share for concrete frames within the SCC market.

Based on end user, the infrastructure segment accounted for the largest share of the global self-compacting concrete market in 2015. Earlier, infrastructure conditions for contemporary architectural buildings had set new requirements regarding construction methods for reinforced concrete buildings. As such, there was a need to develop concrete with specifically defined properties in fresh state to meet those requirements. This, in turn, led to the development of self-compacting concrete (SCC) that flows under its own weight, can fill formworks, and is compacted under the influence of self-weight, without vibration and additional processing.

Among all regions, Asia-Pacific led the global self-compacting concrete market in 2015, owing to the gradual rise in constructional activities in this region. Rapid urbanization in countries such as China and India is further expected to boost infrastructure developments in the power and transport sectors. There is an increasing demand for self-compacting concrete from both, residential as well as non-residential constructions across the European region, which, in turn, is propelling the growth of the global self-compacting concrete market.

Self-Compacting Concrete Market

Key challenges impacting the growth of the global self-compacting concrete are limited usage of self-compacting concrete in emerging economies and the emergence of eco-SCC as an alternative to self-compacting concrete. Growing popularity of low-fines self-compacting concrete (smart dynamic concrete), and gradually recovering construction and housing sectors in the European region post-recession offer lucrative growth opportunities to players operating in the global self-compacting concrete market. High cost of raw materials acts as a major restraint to the growth of this market.

Major players operating in the global self-compacting concrete market include CEMEX S.A.B. de C.V. (Mexico), LafargeHolcim Limited (Switzerland), Tarmac (U.S.), Sika Group (Switzerland), BASF SE (Germany), and ACC Limited (India), among others. These companies have adopted the new product launch strategy to cater to the diversified requirements of customers and enhance their geographic presence in this market.
