Ready-mixed concrete after the crisis

New point of view


Due to the current general negative trend in the construction industry, ready-mixed concrete is facing difficulties. Looking to the foresee able future from a number of points of view the paper tries to describe which options are available for market development. In 2008 the author presented “A look into the future”, a paper which besides giving the historical background of ready-mixed concrete as a construction material, tried to identify what at that time seemed to be the foreseeable trends for the development of this product.
