GFRC has applications in architecture for cladding and moldings in buildings for foundations and floors, roofing, walls and windows, in engineering permanent formwork, utilities and water management and bridges and tunnels, in defense and others.
Europe dominates the GFRC market in terms of demand, followed by North America and the Asia-Pacific. South America and the Asia-Pacific are expected to increase their market share during the forecast period due to the growing consumer spending in these regions.
The market is driven by the growing awareness and increased emphasis on green buildings, which are rated by the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED). LEED is a United States-based council that certifies a building based on the energy consumed, energy requirements for operation and the environmental impact. The superior mechanical characteristics of GFRC compared to Steel Reinforced Concrete (SRC) plays a major role in the growth of this market. However, the price of GFRC is high in comparison to SRC, which is a constraint especially in the emerging economies. The market looks bright with the rise in consumer awareness on GFRC in the emerging nations such as China and India.
Some of the major market players included in the report are BCM GRC Ltd., Cheng Concrete, Domcrete GFRC Countertop Supplies, Fibrex Construction Corp, Glass Reinforced Concrete UK Ltd., Loveld, and Telling Ltd, among others.
