Translucent Concrete Sector: Growth Drivers and Challenges

Growth Drivers

  • High adoption of sustainable construction practices - Sustainable construction helps in catering to the needs of the present coupled with the future without harnessing the environment. For that reason, sustainable construction options should be adopted very early in the process.
    The increasing application of advanced materials in the building and construction industry to reduce greenhouse gas emissions is bolstering the demand for viable materials such as high-performance translucent concrete which is an eco-friendly alternative to traditional concrete as it has a low density and low thermal conductivity.
  • Rising investment in nanotechnology - The energy sector has been getting rapidly transformed due to the advancements in nanotechnology and its expansion is expected to change the way of energy consumption.
    Day by day nanotechnology is making energy production cost-effective. The rising rate of invention in the field of nanotechnology has led to the creation of affordable concrete products that use the property of nano-optics and address climate change through reduced power consumption and increased utilization of more natural light.
    As the application of translucent concrete may aid in lowering the global energy demand and result in a reduction in electricity bills benefitting health is another reason for the growth of the translucent concrete market.


  • Higher cost of translucent concrete - The cost of translucent concrete is high compared to traditional concrete due to the cost of optical fibers and the complex casting process involved.
    By embedding light-transmitting elements within the concrete matrix, the translucent concrete provides light transmission. This intricate process can adversely impact the strength of the structure. All-inclusive, the rise in the rate of complete construction owing to the use of translucent concrete is a major restraining factor for the market.
  • Lack of Awareness About Advanced Materials
  • Disruption in Supply-Chain

Translucent Concrete Segmentation

End-User (Residential, Non- Residential)

The non-residential segment in the translucent concrete market is anticipated to garner the largest revenue of 55% by 2036. The growing investment in commercial construction as a result of the increasing demand for commercial spaces worldwide is propelling the segment’s growth.

In the United States, commercial construction spending totaled around USD 96 billion in 2022. Additionally, the rising emphasis on weather resistance, illumination, appearance, and thermal insulation of commercial buildings, subway stations, highways, and aircraft will promote the use of translucent concrete in commercial constructions.

Furthermore, the translucent concrete can also be used for maintaining traffic safety worldwide by being used in smart lane separators. All these elements collectively support market in this segment.

Application (Facade and Wall Cladding, Roofing, Flooring, Digital Signage)

The façade and wall cladding segment will hold the second-largest market share. The expansion in the demand for energy-saving and eco-friendly building materials such as light transmitting concrete for designing the external appearance of the buildings is counted to boost the use of translucent concrete for façade, wall cladding, and fine architecture of a building. Another benefit of using translucent concrete is the reduction in noise pollution. The walls of the building are made out of translucent materials, the light from outside can efficiently enter inside through the help of optical fibers.

Also, when a sufficient amount of light can enter and brighten the interior of the building, the need for lighting decreases eventually helping in the conservation of energy.

Translucent Concrete Industry - Regional Synopsis

European Market Forecast

The translucent concrete market in Europe is projected to be the largest with a share of about 30% by the end of 2036. The growing construction activities and the stringent government regulations regarding energy conservation and sustainable construction in the region owing to rising concerns regarding greenhouse emissions from buildings in Europe are some of the major factors estimated to drive the expansion of the market in Europe.

Further, multiple infrastructure projects are laid down in the region such as hospitals and large commercial spaces, simultaneously stimulating growth in the market. Moreover, the presence of well-known industry key players such as Dupont Lightstone is enhancing the shape of the market.  

It was found that, in 2021, buildings and the construction industry in the European Union accounted for nearly 40% of energy consumption, about 33% of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, around 40% of materials, and almost 40% of waste.

North American Market Statistics

The North America region will also encounter huge growth for the translucent concrete market during the forecast period and will hold the second position owing to the increasing infrastructural development in the United States and the growing concrete demand in the region.

According to a recent study, in the United States, the production output for cement and concrete products crossed USD 70 billion in the year 2022 since these are widely used in the construction sector. Moreover, the rising popularity of transparent concrete in commercial buildings in the region and the extensive use of green building components in North America are further estimated to result in a demand rise for such materials.

Another factor fueling the market in the North America is the growing awareness of electricity conservation among the residents which substantially led to the manufacture of environment-friendly structures.
