The Global Self Consolidating Concrete (SCC) market is estimated to be valued at USD XX.XX million in 2015, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.56% to reach USD XX.XX million by 2020. SCC, a high-performance high-flow construction material, is manufactured just like traditional concrete, sans the addition of super-plasticizers and viscosity modifying admixtures. The SCC was developed around 25 years back, and has since been gaining popularity among the contractors and architects in the developing countries, primarily for use in precast and repairing applications. However, its usage has also increased in the new construction application segment.

SCC has the unique ability to settle and flow into even the most congested crevices and to-be-reinforced places purely on the basis of self-weight. Its aforementioned characteristic reduces the need for vibration equipment and large labor force; thereby, resulting in noise-free and low-time consuming construction. SCC is used extensively in the European and North American region for various construction activities. In the global SCC market report, we have considered the following major construction application areas: Precast Concrete, Architectural, Residential, Infrastructure, and others. The precast concrete segment accounted for the majority of consumption in the global SCC market in 2015. The market has also been divided according to the constituent type into Cement, Aggregates, Admixtures, and others. The market in the admixtures segment has been further sub-segmented into mechanical and chemical segments.

This market is driven by a number of factors, such as the non-requirement of vibration process in laying SCC, the improved air quality and significant reduction in MRO costs, and the reduced environmental footprint in SCC-based new construction and repair activities. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, primarily the high costs associated with using SCC, and the limited usage of SCC in construction activities in emerging economies. The scenario in developing countries in Asia-Pacific, especially in India, is expected to change drastically in the coming years, primarily because of the development and introduction of SCC by UltraTrech in the country.

The market has also been geographically segmented on the basis of consumption into Asia-Pacific, North America, Europe, South America, and Middle-East and Africa. The regions have further been bifurcated into countries. Europe is the current leader in the world for SCC, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of XX.XX% during the forecast period. Germany led the market in the aforementioned region in 2014.

The increased consumer emphasis on low-noise construction activities, the growing popularity of Low-fines SCC (Smart Dynamic Concrete), and the gradually recovering construction and housing sector in Europe in the recent years, are some of the major growth opportunities for the players in the global SCC market. The major producers in the global SCC market include BASF SE, CEMEX Group, Hong Leong Group, Hope Construction Materials, Lafarge, Sika Group, Tarmac (CRH), UltraTech Cement Limited, and Unibeton Ready Mix.
