Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Market Share, Growth, Development and Demand Forecast to 2030

Published Mar 27 

With the increasing urbanization and industrialization rates, the demand for autoclaved aerated concrete is growing rapidly across the world. Due to their excellent characteristics such as low cost and the ability to sustain fire and earthquakes and availability in various sizes, autoclaved aerated concretes are being increasingly used in the construction industry. These products also reduce the construction time by 20%, as the blocks are available in multiple sizes. Furthermore, the increasing construction and infrastructural development activities in emerging economies such as those pertaining to the development of highways and roads, are also fueling the requirement for autoclaved aerated concrete blocks.

Besides the aforementioned factor, the increasing demand for sound-proof and green buildings is also fueling the requirement for autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC) blocks. The production of these blocks is non-polluting in nature, as they are made up of non-toxic materials and does not produce toxic gases. Moreover, the total energy required for manufacturing autoclaved aerated concreate blocks is less than half of what it is needed for manufacturing alternative building materials such as clay brick.

This is credited to the soaring requirement for these materials in the infrastructure sector for developing building and non-building structures, on account of their beneficial traits such as high compression degree, easy machinability, and high-tensile strength. Across the globe, the AAC market will grow rapidly in the Asia-Pacific (APAC) region in the forthcoming years, as per the forecast of the market research company, P&S Intelligence. This will be because of the surging requirement for AAC blocks in the construction sector of various regional countries such as India, Japan, and China.

Hence, it can be said with confidence that the demand for AAC blocks will rise sharply in the years to come, mainly because of their mushrooming requirement in the construction sector, increasing infrastructural development activities, and rising urbanization and industrialization rates in several countries.
