Top 5 Players in the Global Cement Market

The global cement market reached a volume of 4.91 Billion Tons in 2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2026. Due to increasing environmental concerns, leading players of the cement industry are accepting their corporate social responsibility (CSR) and focusing on conducting business ethically. This can also be accredited to stringent regulations implemented by governing authorities of numerous countries that have propelled these players to shift towards improved production methods, which include acquiring energy from renewable sources to lower CO2 emissions. For instance, additional costs like green taxes are imposed in different parts of Europe if emissions are not restricted. As a result, there is a rise in the demand for green cement, which, in turn, is resulting in its surging prices and strengthening the position of key manufacturers operating in the Europe cement market.
