Light Transmitting Concrete: Introduction

Light transmitting concrete, also called translucent concrete, is used with a base material in the building & construction industry. It possesses the light transmissive property. This property is obtained by the uniform distribution of optical fibers through the concrete body. Light transmitting concrete is also known as transparent concrete. It is obtained by replacing aggregates of concrete with transparent alternative materials. It is produced by mixing 4% to 5% optical fibers in the concrete mixture. Light transmitting concrete improves the esthetics of a building. It is also eco-friendly.

Leading manufacturers and research institutions are investing significantly to improve the access to raw materials of light transmitting concrete. Research institutions are also conducting studies to come up with substitutes of raw materials of light transmitting concrete. Manufacturers are also striving to enhance their product portfolio of light transmitting concrete in order to cater to various end-user industries.

Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Light Transmitting Concrete Market

The light transmitting concrete market is driven by the increase in focus on green buildings in developed countries. Demand for light transmitting concrete is rising due to its property to illuminate in natural sunlight. It can also sustain in extreme weather conditions because of its high insulation properties. The light transmitting concrete market is also expanding owing to the energy & cost saving properties of the concrete. It also creates beautiful finish by self-illuminating without electricity. However, the light transmitting concrete market is hampered by the high initial cost, as optical fibers are used in this concrete. Furthermore, casting of translucent concrete blocks requires highly skilled labor.

Light transmitting concrete is used in floors, ceilings, pavements, load bearing walls, partition walls, and furniture for decorative purposes, light sidewalks, subway stations, fire escapes, speed bumps on road, etc. Light transmitting concrete provides various advantages. For instance, it illuminates pavements. These pavements look better than the traditional ones. The texture of light transmitting concrete is smooth vis-à-vis conventional concrete. Thus, it offers classy surface, as it is more homogenous than the traditional concrete. The concrete structure is strong as compared to the traditional concrete. Thus, light transmitting concrete is more durable. Furthermore, routine maintenance is not required for the concrete.

Light Transmitting Concrete: Type of Optical Fiber Segment

The light transmitting concrete market can be segmented based on the type of optical fiber used for manufacturing processes

The type of optical fiber used are multimode graded-index fiber, multimode step-index fiber, and single-mode step-index fiber. The type of optical fiber to be used depends upon the type of application of concrete.

COVID-19 Impact on Light Transmitting Concrete Market

On January 30, 2020, the International Health Regulations Emergency Committee of the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak a public health emergency of international concern. Originating in China, the virus has spread to at least 213 countries and territories around the world.

Several governments and private sector businesses are operating at a limited capacity or have ceased operations completely due to recent events surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic

The construction industry has been severely affected by the outbreak of COVID-19. Ongoing projects are getting delayed, while sanctioned projects are put on hold. This is expected to negatively impact the light transmitting concrete market, as light transmitting concrete is used on a large scale in the building & construction industry.

Asia Pacific to Dominate Light Transmitting Concrete Market

In terms of region, the global light transmitting concrete market can be divided into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa

The use of variety of fiber-optics sensors in concrete structure has boosted the demand for light transmitting concrete in the building & construction industry in Europe and North America. Large numbers of players operate in the light transmitting concrete market in Europe. Thus, the market in the region is expected to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period. Demand for light transmitting concrete is high in Asia Pacific, especially in as China, India, and Japan, led by the presence of the vast building & construction industry. The market in Latin America and Middle East & Africa is estimated to expand at a moderate pace during the forecast period.
