Fiber Cement Market Overview

The global fiber cement market was valued at USD 14,977.31 million in 2020 and is projected to reach USD 24.87 Billion by 2030 at a CAGR of 5.59%. In terms of volume, the global market was sized at 29,274.4 kilotons in 2020 and is expected to register a CAGR of 4.05% to be sized at 38,945.5 kilotons by the end of the review period.

Fiber cement is also known as reinforced fiber cement. It is a composite building and construction material offering superior physical properties like a high level of toughness & durability. Majorly, its application is in façade and roofing products.

Fiber cement products include boards, panels, and siding and are widely used in the construction of residential and commercial buildings due to their fire and impact-resistant properties. Fiber cement panels are used for exterior wall cladding, partition walls, ceilings, and decorative applications.

COVID-19 Impact on the Fiber Cement Market:

The outbreak of COVID-19 has had a negative impact on the production of Fiber cement due to the disruption in the supply chain across the globe. In response, to protect workers from the spread of the new coronavirus, the companies in the market have restricted travel and face-to-face meetings for the employees. According to the United Nations, the global economy is projected to contract by around 3% or more instead of registering 2.5% growth projected by the World Economic Situation and Prospects report 2020.

Many monetary and fiscal policies are imposed by governments worldwide to mitigate the impact of COVID-19, causing relief to the consumers.

The companies are working aggressively towards safeguarding the health and wellbeing of their employees while also supporting government goals of maintaining critical business activities in healthcare, power generation, and food production sector. Additionally, the transition by major players to support the need for medical products is a key factor impacting the fiber cement market growth.

Manufacturers in this market have reduced their production capacities due to the decline in demand from the end-use industries, disruptions in the supply of raw materials, and reduced prices. Moreover, players focus on COVID relief and are taking actions for the same.

Market Dynamics


  • Increasing investments in residential construction : The increasing demand for private dwellings and investments in housing projects promotes the growth of fiber cement in residential construction. Rapid infrastructural development across the globe.


  • Alternatives to fiber cement siding and High installation cost : Vinyl, wood, and steel are all popular siding materials and alternative options to fiber cement siding.Vinyl siding is a popular choice owing to its wide range of availability in styles and costs. Wood siding is more likely to be used in custom homes because it is expensive, requires regular maintenance, and is susceptible to insects. On the other hand, steel siding is widely used as an alternative for fiber cement siding in industrial and commercial buildings as well as residential siding.


  • Growing demand for energy-efficient buildings : Global warming is severely affecting the environment. Energy efficiency in construction is one of the best ways to mitigate this issue. By reducing the number of natural resources, land, raw materials, and energy used in and for creating buildings, a significant decrease in GHG emissions can be noticed. Energy-efficient buildings are high-performing buildings and environmentally friendly structures. The fiber cement board, also called v board, is cost-effective and time-saving solution for the construction of drywalls.


  • Fluctuating availability of raw materials : The mixture of cement, sand, water, and fiber is used for the production of fiber cement. Small amounts of other chemical additives used enhance particular characteristics such as durability, fire, impact and moisture resistance, etc. Fibers include steel fibers, glass fibers, synthetic fibers, and natural fibers.
