Due to their superior qualities, such as strength-enhancement, chemical resistance, and waterproofing, cement and concrete additives such as fly ash, silica fume, set retarders, rice husk ash, and others are used for application in the infrastructure sector for highways, bridges, dams, and other structures. Due to reasons like increased foreign investment, industrialization, and government initiatives for infrastructure development, the infrastructural industry is expanding quickly. For instance, the Alberta Government reports that between 2020 and 21, around US$1.16 billion was committed to infrastructure construction in 172 projects.
Moreover, the increasing population and rapid urbanization are resulting in the growing requirement for the construction of residential and commercial buildings. This, along with a significant rise in remodeling, renovation, and reconstruction of infrastructures and the development of mega infrastructure projects in several countries, are catalyzing the demand for cement across the globe. In addition, the emerging trend of the nuclear family is resulting in the rising need for residential spaces, such as studio apartments and private bungalows, which is positively influencing the market. Furthermore, the introduction of advanced technologies in the manufacturing process of cement is strengthening the market growth. The increasing utilization of green cement in constructing eco-friendly and sustainable buildings to reduce harmful emissions and support environmental health is also creating a positive market outlook. The escalating demand for precast materials, including blocks, roof panels, and tiles, is offering lucrative growth opportunities to the manufacturers. Apart from this, governments of various countries are increasingly investing in enhancing the existing infrastructure. For instance, they are focusing on public housing projects and the construction of roads, railway tracks, bridges, and flyovers for better connectivity to remote areas.
Moreover, governments of various countries are investing heavily on enhancing the existing infrastructure, which is contributing to the market growth. The growing environmental concerns, coupled with technological advancements in the production process, are also driving the market. For instance, as the inclusion of thermal energy in the manufacturing of cement ensures a low carbon footprint, it is widely adopted by manufacturers of different End-use industries. Additionally, improving focus on sustainable development has resulted in shifting preferences toward green construction. This, along with the escalating demand for green buildings, is positively influencing the sales of sustainable and green cement as it minimizes CO2 emissions generated during their production. Thus, the increasing demand in the construction driving the growth of the Cement market revenue.
The Cement market segmentation, based on type, Portland, Blended, and Others. The Portland segment held the majority share in 2021 contributing to around ~62%-64% in respect to the Cement market revenue. This is primarily owing to the rising residential construction market.
January 2023: Loma Negra, a subsidiary of InterCement (Brazil) awarded expansion project to Sinoma Overseas Development Co Ltd (SODC). The second line of production will have a capacity of 5800TPA. The L’Amali works is the largest cement facility in the Argentina, and Line II marks the second co-operation between SODC and InterCement. This expansion will increase company’s footprint in the Latin American Market.
The Cement market segmentation, based on application, Residential Construction, Commercial Construction, Industrial, Others. The Commercial Construction segment dominated the market in 2021 and is projected to be the faster-growing segment during the forecast period, 2022-2030. Blended cement is a type of cement that contains both Portland cement and slag. The main factors driving demand for blended cement in the cement market is its higher strength and durability than either Portland or slag-only cements. In addition, blended cements are better suited for use in areas with high humidity, since they have a greater ability to retain water. There are a number of factors contributing to the high demand for blended cements. First, the combination of Portland and slag materials results in a stronger product that can address a wider range of needs. Second, the increased popularity of rainwater harvesting and drought-resistant landscaping has led to an increased need for durable building materials that can stand up to prolonged exposure to weather conditions. Finally, modern construction methods often involve the use of heavier gauge steel which requires a more durable concrete foundation. Hence, demand in different applications positively impacts the market growth.
November 2022: Votorantim Cimentos has completed the acquisition of all Heidelberg Materials' companies in southern Spain, including a contemporary integrated cement plant in Málaga, three aggregates quarries, and eleven ready-mix facilities in the Andalusia area. This has further increased market share in the Cement industry. This purchase is completely consistent with company strategy, strengthens company footprint on the Iberian Peninsula to better serve its clients, and generates significant synergies with its current assets.
Additionally, Not only is there high demand for blended cements, but the technology behind producing them is also advancing at a rapid pace. Today's blenders use advanced industrial blending machines that can achieve very accurate results while still meeting consumer requirements for strength and flexibility. This likely to keep the demand for Cement high and help it grow, which will boost the Cement market in the coming years.
By Region, the study segments the market into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and MEA. Asia-Pacific Cement dominating market accounted for USD 0.105 billion in 2021 and is expected to exhibit an 4.88% CAGR during the study period. This is attributed to the increasing infrastructure development Megaprojects such as China’s One Belt and One Road (OBOR) infrastructure program are likely to stir up the demand for cement during the forecast period. For instance, in August 2017, construction work was started on the East Coast Rail Link project to link Malaysia’s east and west regions. The project is a part of OBOR and is anticipated to amount to nearly USD 13.0 billion. Increasing urbanization is leading to steady growth of cities, which in turn is estimated to contribute to the growth of the segment. Besides this, the factor is projected to provide a significant push to residential construction.
