White Cement Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2017-2022



White cement is a white colored construction material with excellent aesthetic, decorative and hydraulic binding properties. It is as durable and strong as grey cement; however, it differs in its color and fineness. The metal oxides added during its manufacturing (primarily iron and manganese) influence its degree of whiteness. Thus, it serves as is a key ingredient in the production of architectural and decorative concrete that find applications in terrazzo tiles, paints, pavers, pre-fabricated products like artificial walls, tile adhesives, etc.

                                                           white cement market

White cement is often used in combination with pigments to impart attractive color shades to concretes and mortars which is not possible with ordinary grey cement and results in dull colors. White cement based plasters are used for covering facades and swimming pools as they are highly durable and require lesser maintenance than painted surfaces. The uniformity and chemical purity of white cement is quite useful in some complex formulations of construction materials such as joint fillers, insulation and anchorage mortars, water tight coatings, etc. The ability of white concrete to be cast in any shape makes it ideal for sculptures, monuments and restoration of archeological sites. In prefabricated applications, its high compressive strength allows increased production speed and reduces costs by eliminating steam curing. The global demand of white cement is currently much lower than that of grey cement and currently accounts for less than 1% of the current global cement consumption. Its price and profit margins, however, are higher than grey cement.  China currently represents both the world’s biggest producer and consumer of white cement. Cementir Holding S.p.A currently represents the world’s biggest white cement manufacturer. Other major players include Lafarge, Kuwait Cement Company, Royal El Minya Co., Cemex, etc.
