Global Tensioning Systems/Prestressed Concrete Market to Grow at a CAGR of 6.54% by 2030

06-Apr-2023 | Zion Market Research

Global Tensioning Systems/Prestressed Concrete Market Augmented to Reach USD 165.3 Billion Forecast by 2030

The global tensioning systems/prestressed concrete market size was worth around USD 103.9 Billion in 2022 and is expected to reach USD 165.3 Billion by 2030, growing at a CAGR of 6.54% during the forecast period.

Global Tensioning Systems/Prestressed Concrete Market Size

Prestressed concrete is a type of reinforced concrete that is specially designed to withstand high compressive and tensile stresses. It is made by pre-tensioning or post-tensioning high-strength steel cables, rods, or strands inside the concrete before it is cast, thereby putting the concrete into compression before any loads are applied to it. This results in a stronger and more durable material that can span longer distances without the need for intermediate supports, making it ideal for use in bridges, high-rise buildings, and other structures that require high strength and stability. Prestressed concrete is also known for its resistance to cracking, corrosion, and deformation, making it a popular choice for construction projects around the world.

The global tensioning systems/prestressed concrete market is expected to surge exponentially due to the increasing demand for durable and sustainable construction materials, the rising popularity of prefabricated construction methods, and the growing awareness of the benefits of prestressed concrete. This growth is further supported by increasing government investments in infrastructure development worldwide, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, which is expected to witness significant growth in the market.

However, the global tensioning systems/prestressed concrete market industry also faces certain challenges, including the high cost of initial investment, the lack of skilled labor & technical expertise, and the availability of alternative materials such as steel & timber. Moreover, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected the construction industry as a whole, leading to project delays and cancellations and disrupting supply chains.

Despite these challenges, the market presents significant opportunities for growth, particularly in the adoption of new technologies & sustainable practices, the development of new construction methods & materials, and the expansion of infrastructure development in emerging economies. Furthermore, the increasing focus on green construction and sustainable development is expected to drive demand for eco-friendly and energy-efficient building materials, including prestressed concrete. These factors are predicted to create ample opportunities for the growth of the market during the forecast period.

Global Tensioning Systems/Prestressed Concrete Market

The global tensioning systems/prestressed concrete market is segmented based on type, force applied, application, and region.

Based on type, the market is bifurcated into internal prestressing and external prestressing segments. The internal prestressing segment held the dominating market share in 2022 and is further predicted to grow rapidly at a significant CAGR during the forecast period. The internal prestressing segment is a popular choice for a wide range of construction projects, including buildings, bridges, and other large-scale infrastructure projects. This is because it offers several advantages over traditional reinforced concrete, including higher load-carrying capacity, longer spans, and reduced material usage. Furthermore, the internal prestressing segment is expected to witness significant growth in the coming years, driven by factors such as the increasing demand for sustainable and durable construction materials, the growing adoption of prefabricated construction methods, and the rising investments in infrastructure development.

Based on force applied, the industry is segregated into electrical, mechanical, and hydraulic.

Based on application, the market is segmented based on building structure and civil structure segments. The building structure segment held the dominating market share in 2022 and is further predicted to grow at an exponential CAGR during the forecast period. In the prestressed concrete market, the building structure segment is a major application area for prestressed concrete. Building structures include a wide range of structures such as high-rise buildings, commercial buildings, industrial structures, residential buildings, and more. Prestressed concrete is widely used in the construction of these buildings due to its high strength and durability. The use of prestressed concrete in building structures offers several advantages, such as greater flexibility in design, longer spans, reduced material usage, and faster construction times. These benefits make prestressed concrete a popular choice for architects, engineers, and contractors, as they allow for more efficient and cost-effective building construction.

Based on region, the Asia-Pacific region held a remarkable tensioning system/prestressed concrete market share and is further anticipated to occupy a significant CAGR during the forecast period. This is mainly due to rapid urbanization & industrialization, increasing infrastructure development activities, and rising government investments in transportation & energy projects. Furthermore, the growing adoption of sustainable and eco-friendly construction practices is some of the key factors driving market growth in the region. In addition, the region's large population and rising disposable incomes are driving demand for better and more modern infrastructure, which is further fueling growth in the prestressed concrete market. Furthermore, the growing trend of urbanization is leading to the development of smart cities, which require advanced construction materials and techniques, providing further growth opportunities for the market in the Asia-Pacific region.
