U.S. cement tiles market projected to grow at approximately 3.93% CAGR
Cement tiles refer to tiles made up of certain proportions of sand, cement, colors & pigments, and powder, wherein the mixture is compressed under high pressure. These are used extensively for roofing and flooring purposes. Increasing FDI in construction in the Asia Pacific region, supportive government regulations and policies, establishment of SEZs, and minimized construction wastage are expected to have a positive impact on the U.S. cement tiles market. However, the market growth is hampered by fluctuating raw material prices, additional cost, and non-availability of skilled labor.
Governments across all regions are seen promoting and developing their construction sector. Developing nations are particularly bringing various reform and regulations to boost their infrastructure growth and real estate market. Such growth is expected to augment the market growth for modular construction.

The future is looking bright for construction firms across the globe, projecting the global construction market to exceed USD 1 trillion by 2020. The biggest driver of construction industry growth in North America is the positive trends in housing. This is reflected in the current path for spending and employment within the U.S. construction industry.
The import share of the cement tile market is expected to fall as foreign producers expand their manufacturing capacity in the U.S. to fulfill domestic orders quickly and to create products that are specifically tailored to the tastes of the U.S. consumers.
