Material and Performance Characteristics Makes Autoclaved Aerated Concrete (AAC) Material of Choice

The growing shipping of AAC market products hinges on the growing awareness about the attractive material and performance characteristics AAC blocks and panels. Masons and carpenters worldwide are attracted to the striking durability and dimensional stability of AAC products.

The AAC market size has been steadily expanding on the back of microenvironmental as well as macroenvironmental factors that shape the building and construction industry. Aside from the advantages of AAC in material characteristics, the sustainability aspect is a key pivot for the evolution of the AAC market. The avenues have been broadened by the trend of adoption of green construction materials that are environmentally friendly across the value chain, ranging from the raw materials suppliers to retailers and distributors of ACC products. The cost-effectiveness and speedy construction are the two major aspects that has propelled the demand in the AAC market. The use of less raw materials per volume is key to its cost-effectiveness.

At the end-user side, the use of AAC offers gains energy savings used in cooling or heating the buildings. A part of this function hinges on tight building envelopes that are possible with AAC. Thus, the AAC products are viewed as a contemporary frame construction that can comply with the existing green building rating systems.

Indeed, in key markets notably in Europe and Asia, these advantages and the sustainability aspects are key to growing adoption of AAC products among the architects and masons.

Europe a Lucrative Market, Sustainability Concerns Drive Concerns

The market survey on autoclave aerated concrete (AAC) finds Europe to be a highly lucrative market. The extensive adoption over the past few years has constantly increased its valuation. A large part of the momentum in the Europe ACC market has come from the adoption of green rating systems in the construction industry. The massive drive for ensuring the use of green construction materials has gained force on the back of stringent implementation of green rating systems such as LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design). In addition, in many European economies, AAC lends the advantage of local materials credits to green building rating systems. Asia Pacific has emerged as a highly promising market. The demand for green products such as AAC in buildings is driven by energy considerations.

The sheer pace of urbanization has spurred the construction of new buildings. Environmental as well economic concerns are a key priority shaping the choice of AAC materials. This is a key driver for the demand in the AAC market. Rise in commercial unit constructions in emerging economies is a key trend bolstering the prospects of the Asia Pacific AAC market.

On the other hand, North America market has a large unmet need. The prevalence of wood-based constructions will spur growth in the regional market.

Low Awareness Motivates Manufacturers to Expand AAC Units

The low awareness about the performance gains of AAC products, coupled with the high initial costs required for adoption, has dampened the widespread adoption in the construction industry. Further, the number of AAC units is also concentrated in some key markets, calling for the need for shipping to these to places where their production is less. Nonetheless, in coming few years, as the sustainability and energy considerations takes the center-stage, the commercialization of AAC products will also pick up pace in various emerging economies of the world.
