Global Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Market: Snapshot
The global autoclaved aerated concrete market has gained significant traction in regions such as Europe and Asia Pacific in the past few years. The unique combination of low weight, rigidity of construction, durability, cost-effectiveness, chemical inertness, lower energy cost of heating or cooling, and low negative impact of environment makes AAC a viable construction material. The material has started gaining popularity as a sustainable green building material and is expected to witness a significant rise in demand in the next few years.
Transparency Market Research estimates that the global autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) market was valued at US$6.11 bn in 2015 and will rise to US$11.44 bn by 2024, expanding at a promising CAGR of 7.3% between 2016 and 2024.
AAC Blocks Emerge as Most Promising Product Segment
Based on product variety, the global AAC market has been examined in the report for block, wall panel, floor panel, roof panel, and cladding panel. Of these, the segment of blocks emerged as the dominant product segment in the global market in 2015. In terms of revenue, the blocks segment accounted for more than 48% share of the global AAC market in 2015. It is anticipated to be a speedily growing segment over the forecast period as well, expanding at a CAGR of 7.8% from 2016 to 2024.
The segment of AAC wall panels is also expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period, owing to excellent combination of strength and thermal and acoustic insulation that AAC panels offer. AAC wall panel is an impeccable building solution for large-scale, industrial and commercial construction. The wall panel segment is projected to expand at a CAGR of 7.2% during the forecast period.
Europe to Remain Key Growth Destination for AAC Market
In terms of revenue, Europe dominated the global AAC market, accounting for more than 34.0% of the market share in 2015. This is attributed to wide acceptance of AAC as a building material in the region. It is also due to the fact that Europe is the major producer of AAC with countries such as Poland, Germany, and the U.K. producing a significant volume of the product. In Asia Pacific, emerging economies such as China and India are consuming a high volume of AAC products, chiefly owing to the vast rise in population and rapid rate of urbanization and the resultant rise in the number of building construction projects.
Although the Europe AAC market will continue to be the dominant contributor of revenue to the global AAC market over the forecast period as well, it will lose prominence to the Asia Pacific AAC market in terms of rate of growth. The AAC market in Asia Pacific will exhibit a promising 8.2% CAGR from 2016 through 2024 and capture a significant share of the global market by the end of the forecast period.
Rise in purchasing power of people, accelerated urbanization, growing population, and government efforts to provide affordable housing are anticipated to boost the demand for AAC across developing economies in Asia Pacific and Latin America during the forecast period. The autoclaved aerated concrete market in Middle East & Africa is also likely to witness significant growth during the forecast period, due to a vast rise in infrastructure development projects in the past few years.
