Future opportunities for AAC in the USA
In his article in AAC Worldwide 1/2019, Prof. Dr. Fouad H. Fouad, a world-renowned expert in the AAC industry, described the experiences that he and the North American autoclaved aerated concrete industry have had with this building material since the early 1990s.
The title of this article (“The AAC Experience in the U.S.”) revealed that despite great successes in many other countries, AAC could not sustainably assert its position in the American market at the time, but also that this building material continues to have enormous potential in the USA.
Since the establishment of AAC Worldwide, we have been observing and reporting on developments in the global markets – including the US market. Due to its characteristics, AAC offers a variety of material properties that are increasingly sought after by construction companies and project developers in the USA. It is therefore a logical consequence that the construction industry is looking for alternative building materials and that related information on technological solutions is in high demand.
We have paid close attention to these developments for some time now. In our function of providing a platform for general knowledge and technology advances, we have forged a direct link with the international AAC industry and related branches. In discussions with the organizers of the leading trade fair for the concrete industry in the USA, the "World of Concrete", an ideal partnership has subsequently emerged, aimed at better integrating the AAC industry in the local and regional markets. As a result of the pandemic, this project had to unfortunately be postponed for some time. And now, it is finally time to make this step towards the American markets and present the building material and its advantages to the North American construction industry.
In its 2023 edition, the World of Concrete will - for the first time ever – present a separate pavilion for AAC. This will offer world-renowned providers of AAC production plant technology a unique opportunity to showcase their systems and solutions. Naturally, AAC Worldwide will participate with an exhibition stand and provide information on this unique building material, its production, and its advantages in application. By joining forces, we have created a promising opportunity for AAC in the USA.
