Fly Ash Market to Benefit from Rising Consumption in the Construction Industry :

Pune, India, December 2018/MRFR Press Release/- Market Research Future Published a Half-Cooked Research Report on “Global Fly Ash Market Research Report - Forecast to 2023”– Market Analysis, Scope, Stake, Progress, Trends and Forecast

Market Overview:

The global fly ash market was valued at
USD 3.4 Bn in 2017 and is projected to reach USD 5.5 Bn in 2023. As per the analysis of Market Research Future (MRFR), the global fly ash market is expected to capture a CAGR of 6.65% over the forecast period of 2016-2023.

Heightened demand for unsaturated polyester resin (UPR) is one of the preliminary factors that is fostering the growth of the global fly ash market. Desirable properties of UPR such as tensile strength, flexural strength, impact strength, damping, thermal expansion, and corrosion resistance in particular results in increased demand from the construction industry. They are used for roofing, building panels, reinforcement, and for the formulation of simulated stones, rocks, marbles, and fiber-strengthened plastics (FRP).

Increasing consumption of fly ash in the automotive industry can also be attributed for the growth of the global fly ash market. Fly ash is applied in the automotive industry to make automotive castings lighter which leads to further energy savings by means of reduced fuel consumption.

The governments in multiple countries have mandated the use of materials containing fly ash for the purpose of construction of new buildings, in a bid to dispose of quantities of fly ash produced without out causing environmental degradation and health hazards which is expected to reflect positively on the growth of the global fly ash market.

Fly ash also finds application in the construction of roads and fire bricks. Fly ash is experiencing towering demand from the building projects of expressways and highways since using them provides significant economic benefits which are likely to arouse the growth of the global fly ash market.

However, the global fly ash market is met with certain factors which are likely to restrict growth over the forecast period. High disposal costs and growing scarcity of landfill sites can impede the growth of the market. Detrimental environmental effects of fly ash might also constrain market growth. Meanwhile, commercialization of bio-based maleic anhydride is expected to offer opportunities for market expansion over the forecast period.

Competitive Landscape:

Bluestar Harbin Petrochemical Corp. (China), Thirumalai Chemicals Ltd (India), Fuso Chemical Co. (Japan), Changzhou Yabang Chemical Co. Ltd (China), Helm AG (Germany), Ashland Inc. (US), Polynt Group (Italy), Marathon Petroleum Corp. (US), Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation (Japan), Lanxess (Germany), Ningbo Jiangning Chemical (China), Nippon Shokubai Co. Ltd (Japan), Nan Ya Plastics Co.(China), Bartek Ingredients Inc. (Canada), and Huntsman Corporation (US) are the leading players in the global fly ash market.
