Market Overview:

The global lower carbon cements market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period from 2018 to 2030. The market growth can be attributed to the increasing demand for green construction and infrastructure projects across the globe. In addition, stringent environmental regulations regarding emissions from cement manufacturing are also fueling the demand for lower carbon cements. Based on type, fly ash based cement held a major share of the global lower carbon cements market in 2017. This can be attributed to its high thermal insulation properties and low CO2 emissions as compared to other types of cements such as slag based cement and geopolymer cement. Geopolymer cement is expected to witness highest growth during the forecast period owing to its superior properties such as high compressive strength, resistance against chemical attack, and low embodied energy as compared to other types of cements. Based on application, residential accounted for majority share of the global lower carbon cements market in 2017 followed by industrial and infrastructure applications respectively.

Global Lower Carbon Cements Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

Lower carbon cements are made with a lower carbon content than traditional Portland cement. This results in a product that is more environmentally friendly and has reduced emissions. Lower carbon cements can be used in any application where traditional Portland cement is used, but they are often used for construction projects that require LEED certification.

Fly Ash based Cement:

Fly ash based cement is a low-cost & environment-friendly alternative to Portland cement. It has high demand in construction activities as it reduces carbon dioxide emission and promotes reuse & recycling of materials. Fly ash is a byproduct generated during coal combustion at power plants, iron and steel industries, etc.

Slag based Cement:

Slag based cement is a by-product obtained during the manufacturing process of Portland cement. It is usually a mixture of calcium sulfate and iron oxide, which are used as raw materials for producing cement. The product has high durability and strength due to the presence of significant amount of carbon in it. It also contains other minerals such as calcium carbonate, lime, etc., making it an ideal raw material for use in construction activities globally.

Application Insights:

The industrial application segment led the global lower carbon cement market in 2017 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of XX% over the forecast period. Industrial applications include construction & building materials, automotive parts, medical devices, and engineering plastics among others. The growing focus on green building practices across various end-use industries including automotive is expected to promote product demand in industrial applications over the coming years.

The infrastructure segment accounted for a significant share of 23% in terms of revenue as well as volume in 2017 owing to increasing government spending on infrastructure development projects globally including rail connectivity, roadways & highways etcetera globally which promotes product usage for strengthening weak spots or cracks due to settlement pressure from heavy vehicles drive over them or load bearing capacity required for supporting such weight are few factors that promote its use globally within this sector.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has been witnessing rapid urbanization, which has resulted in increased construction activities. This, in turn, is likely to drive the demand for cement across this region.

The growing infrastructural developments across emerging economies such as China and India are also estimated to fuel product demand over the coming years. In addition, increasing industrial output supported by rising manufacturing activities will further propel growth of this market segmentation.

Europe accounted for a significant share of revenue generation owing to presence of prominent infrastructure projects including Channel Tunnel Rail Link (CTRL), Seikan tunnel between Japan and Korea; A9 motorway link between Perthshire/Menteith/Aberdeen and Inverness; High Speed 1 rail link from Paris to Calais; M4 motorway link connecting London with Bristol etc.

Growth Factors:

  • Stringent environmental regulations for emissions from cement manufacturing plants will drive the demand for low-carbon cements.
  • Increasing awareness about climate change and its impact on human health will lead to increased demand for low-carbon cements.
  • Rising prices of traditional fuels such as coal and oil will incentivize the use of alternative fuels in cement manufacturing, which would favor the growth of low-carbon cements market.
  • The increasing popularity of green buildings will also boost the demand for low-carbon cements in construction industry worldwide.
