World Cement


Attention: There is an updated edition available for this report.

World Cement

Growth in the world cement market will total 4.5% annually through 2019 in volume terms.  Gains will be fueled by advances in construction activity in the developing nations of the Asia/Pacific and Africa/Mideast regions.  Increasingly stringent environmental standards will support demand for green products, including pollution-free spraying cement.

This report segments the world cement industry by Type, Market, and Region.  Data is provided in million metric tons and billion US dollars.

Cement types include:
Blended
Portland
Other

Blended cement will remain the largest of these through 2019.  Fastest growth will be for other cement types, such as pozzolanic and specialty cements, driven by cost benefits and the environmentally friendly profile of certain specialty cements.

Major markets include:
Residential
Nonresidential
Non-building

Residential was the leading outlet in 2014.  The most rapid gains through 2019 are forecast for the non-building market, fueled by increases in public infrastructure spending.

World regions and countries covered in the study include:
North America 
Western Europe 
Asia/Pacific 
Central & South America 
Eastern Europe 
Africa/Mideast 

The Africa/Mideast region will see the strongest advances among world regions through 2019.  Although overall growth in the Asia/Pacific region will slow considerably, India will continue to post the fastest gains of all countries worldwide, supported by rising investments in transportation and energy infrastructure projects.  

The global cement industry consists of thousands of producers, ranging from small, privately held firms to multinational corporations.  Among the leading producers are Anhui Conch Cement, Camargo Corrêa, CEMEX, China National Building Material, China Resources Cement, EUROCEMENT, Grasim Industries, HeidelbergCement, Italcementi, LafargeHolcim, PT Semen Indonesia, Taiheiyo Cement, and Votorantim Participações.
