More emphasis is also placed on the efficient use, re-use and recycling of concrete and building materials.
The use of environmentally-friendly products for the production of ready-mixed concrete is one of the key trends in the global ready-mixed concrete market. Producers that are developing sustainable concrete mixes will gain greater market share in this competitive market. With more governments and businesses adopting low-carbon construction policies and climate-friendly strategies, more and more construction companies are integrating sustainability into their construction process.
As global urbanization continues, the demand for concrete (and the sand that goes into it) increases. With depleting natural sand sites, the demand for manufactured sand increases especially in the construction industries – a trend to continue in the coming years.
With 3D printers now capable of printing building walls and processing cement, the technology could help reshape construction industry. The main advantage of 3D printing in the construction industry is the savings of production costs on material waste. Is 3D concrete printing here to stay?
