They are also used in the construction of drilled wells. Due to the increasing oil prices, many oil companies are investing in the market of the Middle-east which is driving the market growth.

The rising popularity of low-fines Smart Dynamic Concrete – SDM, less maintenance and repair costs involved with Self-Consolidating Concrete and new product launches  are driving the market growth of Self Consolidating Concrete Market

The increasing use of low-fines self dynamic concrete (SDM) is driving the market growth of Self Consolidating concrete. The use of SCC has also increased recently due to the less maintenance and repair costs compared to conventional concretes. It also eliminates the use of the vibration process leading to limited requirement of labour. It involves less energy consumption compared to conventional concretes as there is no requirement for the vibration process. The less operational costs like maintenance and repair costs involved with self-consolidating concrete are driving the market growth. Self-Consolidating Concrete involves less noise, limited wear&tear of equipment. Some companies are developing new products like ACC Limited which is a subsidiary of LafargeHolcim launched 4 mixed products in April 2021 which are ECOPact, ACC Thermofillcrete, ACC Suraksha NX Antiwashout Concrete and ACC ADMIX. BASF launched the Master X Seed-STE admixture in March 2019.

The high cost of raw materials is hampering the market growth of Self Consolidating Concrete Market

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected many industries due to the disruption in the supply chain, as there were full or partial lockdowns in many countries of the world and restrictions across borders and closure of airports hampered world trade. The construction sector was also severely affected due to covid-19 as there was disruption of the supply chain and people preferred health over their jobs. Companies couldn’t operate with proper covid norms. It was also difficult for staff and workers to work with social distancing norms. Many construction projects and industrial activities were also delayed due to the lockdown restrictions in different parts of the world. The construction sector is the second largest sector after the agricultural sector in India in terms of employment and it was affected severely as many workers returned to their homes during covid-19 resulting in a massive loss for the industry. The construction and manufacturing sector was the worst hit due to the covid-19 pandemic, especially in the Asia-Pacific region. The demand from the Oil&Gas industry for the construction of drilled wells was also less as oil prices were quite low during 2020 like it was USD 20 per barrel in April 2020 due to less demand and more supply and even there was a labour shortage in this industry as well which hamperes the market growth of Self Consolidating Concrete.

Segment Analysis

The Global Self Consolidating Concrete Market is segmented based on Raw Material, Application, Type and Region.

Based on the Raw Material, the Global Self Consolidating Concrete Market is segmented into Admixtures, Cement, Aggregates and Others (Fibres, Additions).

The Admixtures segment within Global Self Consolidating Concrete Market was valued at US$ XX billion in 2020 and a growth in market size is predicted leading to a market size worth US$ XX billion by 2028, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2021-2028). The admixtures segment has the highest market share as it provides stability and resistance to the segregation of the plastic concrete mixture. Admixtures are used to affect the viscosity of the mixture especially when the grading of available aggregate sources cannot be optimized for cohesive mixtures or with large source variations. A well-distributed aggregate grading help to achieve SCC with less cementitious materials content and low admixture dosage. They are also used for increasing the strength of concretes. Many companies are launching and developing self-consolidating concrete(SSC) products like BASF launched Master X-Seed STE admixture in March 2019 which improves the performance and strength of concrete. A company named ACC launched 4 mixed products in April 2021 which are ECOPact, ACC Thermofillcrete, ACC Suraksha NX Antiwashout Concrete and ACC ADMIX.
