Self-Leveling Concrete Market is projected to reach $5.4 billion by the end of the year 2026 growing at a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period 2021-2026. Rising construction activities coupled with growing demand advanced materials especially in developing nations is the prime factor boosting the demand of self-leveling concrete. Self-leveling concrete also known as self-consolidating concrete or self-compacting concrete gives the flooring a smooth finish and is also very strong and can hold huge weights. Self-leveling concrete is a polymer-modified cement that doesn’t quite require addition of large volumes of water for placement. It can be installed on top of many materials such as concrete, ceramic tile, VCT, wood/plywood or any non-flexible surfaces. These factors are hugely driving the self-leveling concrete market.
Amid the Covid-19 crisis, the self-leveling concrete market witnessed a huge slowdown since the operations of the self-leveling market was affected owing to the market limitations caused by the pandemic. There was restrictions imposed on imports and exports which also caused the slowdown of the self-leveling concrete market. The global shutdown restricted the activities of the self-leveling concrete market such as marketing, sales and distribution. However, the situation is set to ease out by the end of the year 2021
Self-Leveling Concrete Market Segment Analysis – By Type
The underlayment segment lead the global self-leveling market in 2020 with more than 60% of market share. The growth of underlayment segment can be associated to its qualities such as smoothness and accuracy. Underlayment is a thin topping to level, smooth, which fixes imperfections in concrete substrates prior to installation of other floor coverings, such as tile, carpet, or vinyl. It also acts as vapor barrier to the floor which prevents moisture from penetrating through to laminate installation. The normal choice is a thin foam pad material made of polyethylene or polypropylene, which rolls out in sheets. Underlayment are the most preferred type of self-leveling concrete and is extensively used in construction industry. The underlayment segment is expected to grow post covid-19 owing to its flexible nature, as it can be used to correct irregularities and imperfections to an existing floor.

Self-Leveling Concrete Market Segment Analysis – By Surface
Most type of surface can be laid over self-leveling concrete. But mostly in industrial construction, concrete flooring is preferred, as it is cheaper, easy to move things around and less maintenance. Whereas in commercial construction materials such as Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) or ceramic is preferred. In the same way, in residential construction, mostly ceramic, tiles and wood/plywood are preferred for as the flooring. Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) offers excellent dimensional stability that is impact-resistant and cause very little wear and tear. They are very much stable to UV radiation and excess heating that allows this flooring variety of flooring to last long without fading away. This makes Vinyl Composition Tile (VCT) a preferred type of surface in the industrial construction.

Self-Leveling Concrete Market Challenges
Quick-drying and sticky nature of the self-leveling concrete hinders the growth of the market
Self-leveling concrete dries very quick, which means the work needs to be done fast with the product. Self-leveling product tends to get solidified minutes within it has been mixed. The mixing of the product must also be done quickly, depending upon the product and the purpose it is being used since it tends to get dried up really fast. This makes the product a little too volatile and thus it has to be used with proper knowledge and care. The concrete is very sticky in nature. If it gets stuck to any material, it is difficult to remove it after that. Thus, it needs to be handled with utmost care and responsibility. It needs to be preserved and stored properly with good care and safety. It cannot be handled by everyone and has to be handled by people who has knowledge and experience of using the concrete.
