Asia-Pacific Region Market to Dominate the Market

  • Asia-Pacific dominated the market with China and India being the major consumers of the market studied.
  • The Chinese residential housing sector is experiencing a drop-in growth. Nearly 22% of the Chinese urban house stocking is expected to be empty. These include unsold properties and apartments brought by entrepreneurs and speculators, who have no intention of living in them but to hold them as an investment property.
  • As a result, a decline in the construction and rise in the taxes are expected to occur in the Chinese construction sector in the upcoming years, which can have a negative impact on the demand for the consumption of ready-mix concrete in the country. 
  • Infrastructure and highway expansion are a key part of China’s 13th Five Year Plan. In the present scenario the government is taking initiatives, which involves two types of road networks that include a tolled expressway with low tariff and another without toll.
  • Also, In India, it is being preferred in the residential construction sector, owing to the advantages, such as savings in labor requirements and supervision costs, faster construction, and uniform, consistent, and assured quality of concrete.
  • Demand for residential housing in India has rushed due to increased urbanization and rising household income. Also, the Indian Government has allowed FDI of up to 100% for settlements development and townships projects. This, in turn, is projected to increase the residential housing construction in the country.
  • Thus, owing to such factors, the demand for ready-mix concrete is expected to remain high during the forecast period.
