Lightweight aggregate concrete is also known as foamed concrete or autoclaved aerated concrete (AAC). It inherits the expanding agent, which helps in increasing the volume of the mixture. It is manufactured by using natural material and by-products, where natural material includes volcanic pumice, shale and slate and by-product includes fly ash, palm oil shells, slag and pelletized expanded slabs. Additionally, lightweight aggregate concrete is mostly used in construction.
The growing construction sector coupled with the rising population is driving market growth. The rapid urbanization along with increasing expenditure on R&D in the construction industry is again accelerating the market growth. Additionally, properties of lightweight aggregate concrete such as fire resistance, excellent compressive strength and the possibility to restructure with ordinary woodworking tools are further fuelling the market growth. On the other hand, sensitivity to water content, brittleness and longer mixing time may hamper the market growth. Whereas, the rising trend of green building material is expected to create potential opportunities during the forecast period.
