Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Cement Industry: LafargeHolcim, CNBM, Anhui Conch Cement, Heidelberg Cement, Cemex, Italcementi and Taiwan Cement

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: China Resources Cement Holdings, UltraTech Cement, Taiheiyo Cement, China Tianrui Group Cement, Dalmia Bharat, Lucky Cement, Colacem, Buzzi Unicem, CIMPOR, and Ube Industries.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The use of alternative fuels in cement kilns not only mitigates carbon dioxide emissions during the cement production process, but offers other advantages as well. Waste is usually combusted in a devoted incinerator, with energy recovery, and the power generated is encouraged into the national electricity grid system. The cement kiln operates with coal. Waste is exchanged to the cement kiln, replacing a quantity of coal in proportion to its calorific value.”

According to the report, expanding urbanization, growth in population, and increase in nuclear families are likely to act as driving factors in the global cement market in emerging economies.

Further, the report states that increase in construction costs restricts the market growth.
