Reactive Powder Concrete (RPC) is a cementitious composite material in the developing stage, which could be used for construction purpose. The powdered concrete is characterized by the strong physical and mechanical properties, including strength and ductility. RPC achieves the strength and properties from mixture which includes fine particles of sand, super plasticizer, cement, etc. Reactive powder concrete was first developed by Bouygues, a French group of companies in 1990 while the first RPC structure built was Sherbrook Bridge in Canada created in 1997.

RPC concrete is preferred over High Performance Concrete (HPC) owing to the high compressive strength of approximately 200 MPa and low water absorbing capacity, as comparison to HPC, makes the concrete suitable for military waste containment materials applications. The applications of RPC concrete market are currently limited to vehicle and railway bridges, power plants, etc. Increased requirement of plenty of raw materials and the necessity for building constructing blast resistant and earthquake resistant structures is expected to propel the industry growth. Furthermore, the application of micro-structured for constructing industrial and nuclear waste storage facilities could be an emerging application.

However, the high cost of reactive powder concrete owing to the minerals included in the formation of RPC as compared to conventional concrete. is expected to hamper the growth of the global reactive powder concrete market. As a result, RPC is currently utilized in the areas where its features can be fully utilized, which includes infrastructure development.

The global reactive powder concrete market is segmented into application and region. Based on the applications, the market is categorized into vehicle and railway bridges, power plants, military construction and others. Geographically, the global reactive powder concrete market has been bifurcated into five regions including North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa and Latin America. Furthermore, the regions are bifurcated into major countries such as the U.S, the U.K., Germany, France, Japan, China, India, GCC, North Africa, South Africa and Brazil. North America region is expected to serve the maximum share owing to significantly higher budgeted construction sites and high adoptability rate of the technology. Furthermore, Asia Pacific region is expected to witness exponential rise in the construction sector over the forecast period owing to the increasing vast population in emerging countries which include India and China.

The major companies offering reactive powder concrete include BASF SE, ceEntek, CEMEX S.A.B. de C.V., Gulf Precast Concrete, Ecocem Ireland Ltd., Illinois Tool Works, CNBM Heidelberg Concrete AG, Lafarge Holcim., Votorantim cimentos S.A., Sika, Taiwan Concrete Corporation, among all the others. BASF is one of the major company, which is working on the developing reactive powder concrete. The company’s product, MetaMax, is a high reactivity metakaolin (HRM), which boosts the strength, durability, and appearance of Portland cement. MetaMax HRM is a powder manufactured under strict quality control that ensures consistent high reactivity.
