  • Bangkok, Thailand, 16 May 2020 – The concrete industry is facing disruptions to its operation due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Our industry is facing significant stresses brought about by disruptions such as schedule delays, workforce disruptions, equipment and supply chain disruptions, imposition of health and safety measures that affect productivity, delays in permit approvals, cash flow and cost management issues, contract terminations, just to name a few. Although public construction is one of the few activities that has somewhat been maintained to some extent, the long-term outlook is uncertain with decreased demands as governments face rising deficits and low or negative GDP growth. Traditionally, the concrete industry has been slow in adopting technology. However, with this present pandemic, many construction companies are fast-tracking towards applying technology to improve their efficiency and gain operational advantages. The pandemic has somehow speed up the industry's transformation towards becoming a knowledge-based industry driven by application of technology and adoption of digital solutions to facilitate better communications between all stakeholders, reducing costs, and eliminating problems of inefficiency and wastage. The industry will also see new normal and best practices ranging from AI, robotic constructions, real-time data analytics to cloud-based technology and other digital related platforms. These emerging technologies, new norms and best practices will be presented at CONCRETE ASIA – the 5th international exhibition for the Asian concrete sector – to be held in Bangkok, Thailand from 9th to 11th September 2020. In fact, CONCRETE ASIA is poised to be amongst the first post-COVID 19 "face-to-face" construction related industry platform to be staged in Thailand, to kick-start the stalled construction sector, and help push the momentum of the concrete sector towards technology adoptions, and accepting new norms and best industry practices.
