Concrete Pumps Market - Snapshot
A concrete pump is a machine used for transferring liquid concrete by pumping. Large quantities of concrete can be transported by pumping through pipelines over appreciable distances, often to locations that may not be easily accessible by other means of delivery. Pumped concrete is transported to heights by pumping using concrete pumps. This method is used where large quantity of concrete work is required at greater height, where other means of transporting is not easy to do. Concrete pumps have been used for more than 50 years.
Rise in industrialization has propelled demand for concrete pumps
Macroeconomic factors such as GDP growth in Europe, gradual recovery in construction expenditure across the residential and non-residential sectors, and anticipated expansion in the real estate sector supported by government initiatives to provide affordable housing are expected to drive the concrete pumps market. Developing economies create significant opportunities as penetration of advanced technological equipment is less in these countries. In 2017, the construction sector saw a rebound due to rejuvenated residential market, particularly in developed economies. This is attributed to the robust economic growth in North America and Europe. In North America, market expansion and increase in demand for infrastructure repairs created favorable conditions last year. These are expected to continue during the forecast period.
Development in precast concrete element technology is estimated to hamper the concrete pumps market during the forecast period, as it is replacing traditional construction practices. Rise in concern about economic recession and unforeseen political scenario across the globe are likely to delay or cancel infrastructure activities due to political instability and insufficient funds. Increase in industrialization and growth in demand for energy in most regions across the globe are estimated to boost the concrete pumps market in the near future. Governing bodies impose fines and take stringent action against industries upon violation of the clean environment act. High installation cost of concrete pumps is likely to restrain its adoption in small industries with less capital investment.
The residential segment to dominate the concrete pumps market
Concrete pumps are utilized for residential placements, including vertical and horizontal placement. Truck mounted concrete pumps are extensively employed for low-budget residential applications. Rise in investments in construction activities due to rapid industrialization and urbanizations propel demand for concrete pumps.
Development & innovation in product and technology
Recently, Putzmeister introduced latest concrete pump technologies such as free flow hydraulics, S-valve, cross outriggers, and highly wear resistant steel components. Launch of concrete pumps with advanced technologies in Asia Pacific is anticipated to help increase productivity in placement of concrete.
Demand for concrete pumps is likely to increase in Asia Pacific
Asia Pacific is estimated to emerge as a prominent market for the concrete pumps. High environment-consciousness in Europe and North America are projected to drive the global concrete pumps market in the near future. Large number of collaborations between manufacturers and technology developers during the next few years is likely to drive the concrete pumps market.

Concrete Pumps Market - Overview
Concrete pumping has become one of the most widely used approaches to place concrete. With the increasing use of pumping to place concrete, the development and refinement of the practice to ensure successful concrete pumping is becoming an important need for the concrete construction industry. Pumping enables the transport of concrete to forms and molds while increasing the speed of delivery and allowing access to hard-to-reach areas. Concrete pumps are likely to vary according to the end-use industry and quality of the concrete required for construction activities. Consequently, the optimization and development of prediction methods for concrete pumping is becoming a crucial issue for the concrete industry.
Implementation of stringent regulations related to minimization of harmful carbon emissions is propelling demand for concrete pumps. Increase in construction activities and expansion in other end-use industries have resulted in the rising demand of concrete pumps. Therefore, governments of several countries are funding and supporting development and adoption of the latest technology in the concrete pumps.
Asia Pacific is estimated to emerge as one of the prominent regions of the concrete pumps market. Highly environment-conscious Europe and North America are projected to lead the global concrete pumps market in the near future. The concrete pumps market is projected to witness a large number of collaborations between manufacturers and technology developers during the next few years.
