Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Market - Industry Analysis, Market Size, Share, Trends, Application Analysis, Growth And Forecast 2021 - 2026
Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Market Overview
Autoclaved aerated concrete market size is forecast to reach US$21.5 billion by 2027 after growing at a CAGR of 6.5% during 2022-2027. Autoclaved Aerated Concrete products are made up of calcined gypsum, quartz sand, lime, cement, aluminum powder, and water, and are cured in an autoclave under heat and pressure. Autoclaved aerated concrete is environmentally friendly because it produces 30% less solid waste when compared with traditional concrete, owing to this factor its demand is increasing over other concrete types. The non-residential construction activities are increasing as governments are heavily investing in the sector, owing to this the demand for autoclaved aerated concrete is increasing. Moreover, autoclaved aerated concrete's increasing use in floor elements, roof insulation, and more for residential construction is further accelerating the growth of the autoclaved aerated concrete industry.
The COVID-19 crisis in the year 2020 negatively impacted the growth of the market, because the construction activities were halted temporarily, due to the government imposed strict rules and regulations across the world. Major construction projects were halted due to the spread of the Corona Virus, as a result of this, there was a decline in the demand for the autoclaved aerated concrete market. For instance, in March 2020 only the construction of highways, transit infrastructure, bridges, utilities, hospitals or health care facilities, affordable housing, and homeless shelters were allowed in New York rest all construction activities were stopped. However, by 2021, the major construction activities were started, which resulted in the recovery of the losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Also, it is anticipated that the COVID-19 crisis will end by mid-2022, this is expected to fuel the growth of the market.

Autoclaved Aerated Concrete Market Challenges
High Water Absorption and High Insulation is Posing as a Challenge
The water absorption capacity of autoclaved aerated concrete is high when compared with other types of concrete material. As a result of this factor, as they absorb water and then lose it, they expand and contract, causing cracks in the structure. It cannot be installed in a high humid climate because interior finishes must have low vapor permeability and exterior finishes must have a high permeability when used in high humidity environments. Moreover, when employing autoclaved aerated concrete alone, the insulation requirements would necessitate very thick walls. As a result, many builders are opting to return to more traditional building methods, such as adding an extra layer of insulation to the structure. All these factors are posing as a major roadblock for the growth of the autoclaved aerated concrete market growth.
