The Global Polymer Concrete market is estimated to be valued at USD XX.XX million in 2015, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of ~11.00% to reach USD XX.XX million by 2020. Polymer concrete, a type of composite concrete, is a construction material consisting of synthetic resins as a binder, along with a hardening agent and filler, such as an admixture of sand, gravel, or quartz. The aforementioned concrete is significantly different from traditional building materials, as it completely replaces hydraulic mineral binder, cement, from the concrete mixture. Thereby, resulting in improved strength and chemical-resistance characteristics. In the global polymer concrete report, we have considered the revenue being generated by the sales of polymer concrete as a whole product. The segmentation of the market in terms of constituents; Aggregates, Synthetic Resins, and Other Additives, has also been done.

Owing to its superior mechanical properties, such as excellent compressive, splitting, and bending tensile strength, along with its high resistance to chemical reagents, including acids and bases; polymer concrete has been gaining popularity in the recent years as an alternative to the traditional construction materials. Although, the aforementioned concrete provides the builders and residents with many other major advantages, including reduced maintenance cost, environment-friendliness, and shorter installation time; however, its usage is still majorly limited to North American and European countries.

In the global polymer concrete market, we have considered the following major application types: prefabricated products for drainage systems, industrial tanks, catch basins and channels, asphalt pavement, building and repair construction, and others. The prefabricated products for drainage systems and industrial tanks application segments have been further sub-segmented into bridge and linear drainage systems, and electrolysis and storage tanks, respectively. The prefabricated products for drainage systems accounted for the majority of consumption in the global polymer concrete market in 2015.

This market is driven by a number of factors, such as polymer concretes superior characteristics, the increasing need for chemical-resistant construction materials, and the growing emphasis on use of environment-friendly concrete. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, primarily the premium pricing of polymer concrete, and the dearth of demand and awareness regarding polymer concrete in the emerging economies.

The market has also been geographically segmented on the basis of consumption into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and MEA. The regions have further been bifurcated into countries. The US is the current leader in the world for Polymer concrete, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX.XX% during the forecast period. The future potential markets with promising growth forecasts include the ASEAN countries, along with Australia, China, and India.

The replacement of traditional concrete and increase in awareness and usage in Asia-Pacific region, the recovering European construction industry, and the development of cheaper novel products, are expected to offer major growth opportunities for the players in the global polymer concrete market. The resin providers, pre-casters, suppliers, and producers mentioned in the report include Forté Composites Inc., ACO Group of Companies, Bechtel Corporation, BASF, Kwik Bond Polymers, ULMA Architectural Solutions, Bouygues S.A., Wacker Chemie AG, Interplastic Corporation, and Italcementi.
