About the cement mixer market
Cement can be manufactured in bulk, and if stored under favorable conditions, its durability can be extended. These properties of cement make it an essential component in construction, which in turn, propel the demand for cement mixers. The method adopted for the manufacture of cement plays a vital role in the efficiency of cement mixers. The cement mixers convert the cement that is produced from the cement plant in the form of a raw material into a binding material.Some of the major types of cement mixers are-
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Cement Mixer Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global cement mixer market: Caterpillar, Liebherr, Sany Heavy Industries, and Sinotruk.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Akona Engineering, Chenggong Machinery, Doosan Infracore, Fangyuan, Lino Sella, LiuGong, Shanghai Hua Dong Construction Machinery, Shantui Construction Machinery, Terex, Volvo, and Zoomlion.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “A key trend which is boosting market growth is growing use of alternative fuel for cement production. Pet coke is an alternative fuel that is being adopted worldwide. The fuel has a high calorific value and sulfate content. Being less volatile in nature, this fuel is ground completely before feeding it to the kiln to make appropriate use of its high calorific value. The major advantage of pet coke is that it is a by-product of oil refining and is a cheaper fuel than coal.”
According to the report, one of the major advantages of a cement mixer is that it saves time and manual effort that is involved in the construction process. Cement mixers reduce the labor expenses, which makes it a more economical way of mixing concrete and cement. It saves a considerable amount of raw materials because accurate portions of concrete ingredients are fed into a cement mixer, which minimizes the wastage. These mixers act as a crucial construction equipment saving time and increasing the efficiency during the execution of any building project.
Further, the report states that the major factor that could hamper market growth is the formation of cement lumps during usage. Cement has a high affinity for water. Therefore, upon contact with water, the dry cement powder acts like a sponge and globs up. The balls form as these globs roll against the inside drum surface. cement mixer manufacturers have to consider the design elements such as loading rates of the materials such as water, cement, and aggregates for the prevention of formation of cement balls during the mixing process inside the cement mixers.
