Decorative Concrete Market Technology, Types, and Applications 2025

Press Release   •   Jan 12, 2018 01:45 EST

Decorative concrete refers to concrete that not only serves its function as part of a building, but also provides esthetic finish to the building. Decorative concrete is generally not used for structurally important parts of the building. An important characteristic of concrete is its ability to take on the texture, shape, and color of various other materials, which cost several times more than concrete. Thus, decorative concrete can be used instead of costlier bricks, flagstones, and panels, as it provides similar esthetics and good long term performance. This quality has driven decorative concrete market since its inception more than a century ago.
