Global Ready-mix concrete Market Information, By Production (On-site and Off-site), By Application (Commercial, Residential, Infrastructure, Industrial utilities) and Region – Forecast To 2023. The global market for global ready-mix concrete market is expected to grow at 8.02% CAGR.
Ready-Mix Concrete is among customized concrete products for commercial purpose. The ready-mix concrete companies offer different types of concrete, according to the user’s mix design or industrial standard.
The ready-mix concrete industry supplies a valuable construction product to the transportation, building sector, residential and other construction markets. The industry is composed of varying sized family owned business to multi-national corporations. Since ready-mix is a perishable product, ready-mix concrete production facilities are located in numerous metropolitan and rural locations, typically, within 60 to 90 minutes travelling distance from any construction project. The introduction of Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) and Public Private Partnership (PPP) projects for the construction of infrastructure projects, is expected to spur the demand for the product over the upcoming years. However, high initial investment for setting up manufacturing plants for RMC production, is anticipated to act as a restraint for new entrants over the forecast period.

What is Ready Mixed Concrete (RMC)?
Ready Mixed Concrete is a tailor-made concrete that is produced in a factory or within a batching plant based on the standard requirements. The concrete mix is then taken to the worksite within transit mixers mounted over a truck — this type of concrete guarantees better durability and sustainability. As work is performed by an expert supplier, the mixture formed is accurate and of more top quality. Special concrete mixtures, too, can be made effectively by this concrete manufacture process.

Types of Ready Mixed Concrete
There are majorly three types of ready mix concrete (RMC) depending upon the mixing of the various ingredients.
1. Transit mixed concrete – It is also called dry-batched concrete because all the necessary components, such as water, are charged directly into the truck mixer. The mixer drum is gyrated fast at charging speed while loading of the material, and thereafter, it continues rotating at an average agitating speed.
2. Shrink mixed concrete – The concrete is partially mixed in the plant mixer, and then balance mixing is done in the truck-mounted drum mixer during transit time. The amount of mixing in the transit mixer will vary depending on the extent of mixing done in the central mixing plant. Tests must be carried out in order to determine the requirement of mixing the drum mixer.
3. Central-mixed concrete – It is also called the central batching plant, where the concrete is thoroughly mixed before loading into the truck mixer. At times, the plant is also referred to as wet-batch or pre-mix plants. While carrying the concrete, the truck mixer acts as an agitator only. Sometimes, when the workability requirement is low, or the lead is less, non-agitating units or dump trucks can also be used.
Benefits of Ready Mixed Concrete
Qualitative concrete is achieved as a ready-mix concrete mix plant that makes use of sophisticated equipment and uniform methods. There is rigorous control over testing materials, process parameters, and continuous monitoring of crucial practices during the production process.Poor control on the input materials, batching as well as mixing techniques in case of site mix concrete is resolved in a ready-mix concrete process. Speed in the construction practices in ready mix concrete plant is continuously followed by having mechanized operations. The output derived from site mix concrete plant using an 8/12 mixer is 4 to 5 metric cubes per hour, which are 30-60 metric cubes per hour in a ready mix concrete plant. Better handling and proper mixing practice help reduce consumption of cement by 10 – 12%. The use of admixtures and other cementitious materials will help to reduce the amount of cement. The concrete mixer is used with high versatility. It is placed by following the best concrete placing methods. Cement is saved, and the dust caused will be reduced as ready mix concrete making usage of mass concrete instead of bags of cement. Cement saving will preserve energy and resources. Fewer consumption results in less production of cement hence less environmental pollution. The more durable structure is obtained thus increasing the service life and saving the life cycle costs. Ready-mix concrete manufacture has less dependency on human labor; hence, the chances of human errors are reduced. This will also reduce the dependence on intensive labors. Small or large quantities of concrete according to the specification is delivered timely at the site. This will require no space for storing the raw materials at the location. There is no delay owing to site based batching plant erection/ dismantling; no equipment to hire; no depreciation of costs. Petrol and diesel consumed are relatively less; thus, noise and air pollution are lessened.
Disadvantages of Ready Mixed Concrete
The transit time from the preparation of concrete to the delivery site is likely to result in loss of operational factors. This will demand additional water or admixtures to maintain the workability as per the specification. At the site, the QA/QC engineer is supposed to check the workability through a slump test before deploying it for construction. Traffic while the transit of concrete can result in the setting of concrete. This will hence require the addition of admixtures to delay the setting period. But unexpected traffic is a significant problem. The formwork and placing arrangement should be prepared in advance in a large area as the concrete can be bought in more substantial amounts.
