Fly Ash Industry Trends:

Rising Focus on Maintaining Sustainability

The increasing focus on maintaining sustainability is catalyzing the fly ash market demand. People are becoming aware about the harmful impacts of pollution on health. Apart from this, several industry players in the market are focusing on innovative solutions that benefit in lowering carbon emissions. On 10 February 2022, Eco Material Technologies completed the acquisitions of Boral Resources, North American fly ash business, and Green Cement Inc, a manufacturer of near-zero carbon cement alternatives. The company’s prime focus through this acquisition was to decarbonizing the materials industry through scalable and proven technological solutions.

Increasing Construction Activities

The global buildings construction market is anticipated to reach 5.13% CAGR during 2024-2032, as per the research report of IMARC Group. The rising construction of residential and commercial buildings is offering a positive fly ash market outlook. In line with this, the increasing focus on home renovation due to changing living standards of individuals is catalyzing the demand for fly ash in construction materials. Fly ash is used to create ready-mix concrete and concrete blocks and pipes. Furthermore, fly-ash-based concrete mixes benefit in preventing cracking or expansion and reducing permeability. Concrete containing fly ash exhibits improved resistance to sulfate attack, alkali-silica reaction, and other forms of deterioration, leading to long-term durability of structures.

Growing Need for Coal Ash Remediation

The rising focus on coal ash remediation to reduce the use of raw materials is contributing to the growth of the market. It also plays a crucial role in lowering greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and decreasing the cost of coal ash disposal. Apart from this, companies in the fly ash market are adopting this method to broaden their market presence. For instance, on 13 January 2023, NorthStar Group, a portfolio company of investment affiliates of J.F. Lehman and Company (JFLCO), announced the completion of the acquisition of Trans Ash Inc., enhancing NorthStar’s existing capabilities serving the coal ash remediation market.

  • Class F

Class F accounts for the majority of the market share

The report has provided a detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the type. This includes class F and class C. According to the report, class F represented the largest segment.

Class F fly ash is typically derived from bituminous and anthracite coals and primarily consists of an alumino-silicate glass, with quartz, mullite, and magnetite. It has less than 10% calcium oxide (CaO) and less heat generation during hydration. It offers enhanced late compressive strengths, increased resistance to alkali silica reaction (ASR), improved pore refinement, and decreased permeability as compared to unmodified Portland cement. Besides this, it is beneficial in lowering the demand for water and increasing workability. Furthermore, top industry players are extending their agreements to expand the reach of their products. On 22 April 2021, Charah® Solutions announced that it had been awarded a 3-year contract extension with Luminant to provide fly ash sales and material handling operations for Luminant’s Miami Fort Power Plant and Zimmer Power Plant in southern Ohio through 2027. The Company has the right to sell and market 100% of the high quality, specification grade Class F fly ash from both power plants for beneficial use.

Breakup by Application:

    • Bricks and Blocks
    • Road Construction

Construction holds the largest share of the industry

A detailed breakup and analysis of the market based on the application have also been provided in the report. This includes construction (bricks and blocks, road construction, and Portland cement and concrete), agriculture, mining, water treatment, and others. According to the report, construction accounted for the largest market share.

The rising usage of fly ash in the construction sector as structural fill for road construction is supporting the market growth. It is also used to produce bricks, ceramic tiles, plaster, Portland cement, hot mix asphalt, grout fill, and ready-mix cement. Using fly ash in concrete reduces cracking, permeability, and bleeding, creating a dense, high-durability concrete that is resistant to sulphates, and alkali-aggregate reactions. This concrete mix also requires less water and tends to resist shrinking. In addition, fly ash recycles coal burning waste and reduces carbon dioxide (CO₂) emissions. It is a cost-effective alternative to Portland cement for the construction of residential, commercial, or industrial spaces. Furthermore, the increasing focus on infrastructure development due to rapid urbanization across the globe is impelling the market growth. According to the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD), approximately 57% of the world’s population lived in urban areas in 2022.
