Cement Price Trend

Cement Market Analysis

The global cement market size reached US$ 391.104 Billion in 2023. By 2032, IMARC Group expects the market to reach US$ 562.47 Billion, at a projected CAGR of 4.12% during 2023-2032.

  • The rapid population growth and urbanization across the globe are some of the primary drivers boosting the market growth. As the world's population expands, leading to the need for infrastructure and housing, the demand for cement also rises. According to the United Nations, the world's population is expected to grow by approximately 2 billion over the next 30 years, creating the need for increased infrastructure development. This expanding population has led to the heightened need for infrastructure and housing, which extensively use cement for various construction projects. Furthermore, the United Nation has predicted that global urban population will increase to two-third by 2050. This rising trend has been motivating the development of new cities, roads, bridges, and other infrastructure projects, which increases the market expansion.
  • Governments across the globe are also acknowledging the value of infrastructure development for economic growth and social well-being. They are allocating considerable resources to create and improve transportation networks, which includes highways, roads, trains, and airports. For example, the US Department of Transportation in 2022 revealed that public and private investment in transportation infrastructure and equipment reached $403.9 billion, accounting for 7.4 percent of the overall investment of $5,476.1 billion. Moreover, there have been major investment in these activities in other regions, which is creating the need for vast volumes of cement to build long-lasting and dependable infrastructure. Furthermore, the introduction of various regulations that encourage the use of ecologically friendly cement, consequently increasing the growth rate of green cement industry to 10.7% between 2024 and 2032, is propelling the market growth.
  • Economic growth of a country is also closely linked to the demand for cement. There is a surge in investment in construction and infrastructure projects in developing countries like India. This is due to rising GDP and industrialization as it spurs the construction of new factories, commercial spaces, and residential buildings. For example, China's investment in fixed assets grew by 4.9% in 2021 from 2.9% growth in 2020. Also, its industrial investment reached 11.4%, which is a drastic acceleration from 0.1% growth in 2020. Aside from that, in the budget of 2023 and 2024, India's capital investment outlay for infrastructure increased by 33% to Rs.10 lakh crore, which sums up to 3.3% of GDP and almost three times the outlay in 2019-20. This rise in investment has also boosted the need for cement in these regions.
  • The real estate market is expanding rapidly which is another key driver for this product’s market growth. As economies grow and wages rise, so does the demand for houses, commercial properties, and other real estate assets. According to the IMARC analysis, the real estate industry is predicted to touch $8,654 billion by 2032. It is growing at a rate of 1.9% from 2024 to 2032, which is leading to a hike in building activity. Residential, commercial, and industrial buildings are among the many areas of the real estate industry that require cement for foundations, walls, floors, and other structural parts.
