The global engineered cementitious composite (ECC) market was valued at US$ 1.6 Bn in 2022 and is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 7.7% from 2023 to 2031. Recent market trends indicate the continuous focus of the construction industry on reducing the carbon footprint. Adoption of ECC in infrastructure development leads to significant carbon emission reduction and cost savings.

Rise in utilization of ECC in repair and new constructions is expected to propel the market. Continuous advancements in the ECC technology are likely to lead to commercialization of smart and multi-functional ECCs in a wide range of civil infrastructure applications globally. ECC has become a popular composite material owing to its remarkable tensile strength and ductility, and superior tensile strain-hardening behavior than concrete and traditional composites. These properties result in stronger and more resilient infrastructure.
