Commercial Building Market to Drive Growth in Demand for Precast Concrete Products to 2026


CLEVELAND, May 11, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Commercial buildings are the largest market opportunity for precast concrete products, as the leading and one of the fastest growing markets through 2026. According to new analysis from Freedonia Group, strong growth opportunities demand in this market stems from:

  • a rebound in underlying construction following losses during the pandemic
  • greater use of precast concrete at the expense of competing materials

Precast concrete products are increasingly specified when constructing a variety of commercial structures (including high-rise offices, hotels, and industrial buildings) due to their durability and uniformity, which is particularly important for large commercial buildings that require large volumes of materials as it can speed up construction. As skilled labor becomes more expensive and harder to find, the efficiencies offered by pre-engineered products are gaining in importance.

Structural components will be the fastest growing product type in the commercial building market

The growing use of precast concrete products on structures such as child care centers, VA hospitals and other healthcare facilities will support demand gains for precast concrete products in the commercial market, according to the analysis. Structural building components represent the largest category in terms of demand and will experience the fastest growth due to large increases in demand for:

  • precast concrete slabs, due to their durability and ability to reduce construction time
  • pre-engineered building systems, as builders are increasingly specifying these products over site-built structures, as they are faster to build
  • structural supports, as they are increasingly specified in high-rise commercial structures due to their tensile strength and uniformity

Architectural building component products are also widely used in the commercial precast concrete products market.
