Increasing number of retail buildings every year is further anticipated to demand for the decorative concrete industry in the upcoming years. Decorative concrete is a regular concrete with an additional touch of exclusive coloring, patterns, and finishes. It is environment-friendly and its oxide pigments do not cause any air pollution, unlike toxic pigments which are used in paints. Due to its aesthetic enhancement, skid resistance, and improvement of indoor air quality. Rise in residential and commercial infrastructure plans and per capita income of population are the factors, which are boosting the demand from construction engineering is a value-added factor to the growth for the decorative concrete.

Europe Holds Major Share in the Decorative Concrete Market

Europe generated approximately 29% of global revenue in the decorative concrete market in 2018. Growing residential constructions in these regions due to urbanization has led to higher usage of decorative concrete in both indoor and outdoor infrastructures. Besides, some prominent European companies such as AkzoNobel, a Netherlands-based Paints and Performance Coatings Company and Italcementi, an Italian-based cement, ready-mix concrete and construction aggregates company are investing more on research-related activities to incorporate nanotechnology for pigments and additives.

The application segment evaluated in the decorative concrete market is stamped concrete. It is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.23%, through to 2025. Owing to new residential construction and commercial projects, stamped concrete segment is estimated to dominate the decorative concrete market. Stamped concrete is a kind of molded incessant concrete surface, which appears as individual bricks and pavers. It adds an aesthetic finish to concrete areas, commercial roads, and interior floors. Excessive durable property and low cost of material, when compared to natural products makes stamped concrete a great choice for new construction and restoration venturesStamped concrete are easy to install and provide high strength to constructions.
