Fiber Cement Market Trends



  • Paradigm shift toward green building is driving the market growth


Compared to asbestos, fiber cement is more environmentally friendly. As a result, national governments have policies to restrict the use of asbestos. They are attempting to outlaw it, leading to a rise in the utilization of fiber cement as an alternative. Asbestos, for instance, was prohibited from being used in new products by the European Union in 2005 because it poses a health risk. Additionally, nations are moving towards environmentally friendly building and construction practices, and governments have supported this trend with several initiatives. For instance, the Canadian government supports the creation of environmentally friendly and accessible community facilities across the nation through renovations, retrofits, maintenance work, and new building projects. This factor drives the market CAGR in the forecast period.


Additionally, the fiber cement market is thriving due to various factors. One of the primary factors driving the market's growth is the growing demand from the construction industry. Additionally, the ban on asbestos cement products and the efficiency and safety of fiber cement products have also contributed to the market's growth. Other significant factors include rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing countries, the availability of fiber cement products, anti-microbial properties, and the lightweight nature of fiber cement products, which facilitate transportation and reduce costs. The increase in infrastructure investments has also provided a significant opportunity for the fiber cement market. Thus, it drives the Fiber Cement market revenue.
