Fiber reinforced concrete (FRC) – Contributing to sustainable development


NEW YORK, May 31, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The demand for Fiber-reinforced concrete market should reach $3.2 billion by 2025, operating at an estimated rate 6.2% CAGR from 2019 to 2025. Fiber Reinforced Concrete (FRC) is a re-engineered structural material, which is gaining importance in the civil and construction sector. The addition of reinforcing fibers in discrete form helps to improve many technical properties of concrete. With the development of smart materials in civil engineering, concrete has been adopted as a widely used construction material in the world. The use of fibers improves the mechanical properties and durability of concrete, making FRC a material of choice in various fields of application. The application in mass concrete structures, tiles, bridge decks, airport runways, tunnel linings, panels, pavements, defense installations, tunnel linings, precast products and many more tend to drive the demand for FRC over the forecast period. FRC offers a cost effective solution over the conventional concrete system by reducing the cost of construction and increasing the life of the construction.

Fiber Reinforced Concrete: Adding Versatility and Profitability to Construction

Unlike conventional concrete, FRC, due to its flexible behavior, has high potential as a construction material in an earthquake prone area. Additionally, the development of Polypropylene Fiber Reinforced Concrete (PFRC), organic fibers not only improve performance but also help reduce costs and have proven their importance in a variety of terrain settings. The application of FRCs in offshore and underground construction, including dam repair, lining of underground openings, and stabilization of rock slopes, has resulted in a higher rate of adoption and increased research and development of these materials. In addition, improvements are in continuous phase to optimize the fibers according to different applications. Major industry players view the FRC market as a potential business opportunity, as evidenced by the continuous new developments in fiber-reinforced building materials.
