According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Fly Ash Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028,” the global fly ash market size reached US$ 12.8 Billion in 2022. Fly ash, or fuel ash, refers to a very fine, dark-fleck powdery substance consisting of spherical and glassy particles with fewer microns that flies in residue from the coal combustion of pulverized coal. It is transported from the chambers along with flue gases and is captured by particle filtration equipment, such as scrubbers, electrostatic precipitators, or fabric filters. It is mainly composed of aluminous and siliceous oxides, such as aluminum oxide (Al2O3), silicon dioxide (SiO2), calcium oxide (CaO), and ferric oxide (Fe2O3). Previously, fly ash was produced as a by-product through burning coal-fired power plants and was considered very low in value, mostly used for landfilling purposes. However, at present, a huge amount of fly ash is generated from various coal-fired electric steam generating and thermal power plants that are useful as a pozzolanic additive in cement. Apart from this, fly ash contains aluminous and is eco-friendly as it does not emit greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions; thus, it is extensively used as a substitute for traditional material in concrete, which further helps engineer tiles, ceramics, and hollow blocks.
Global Fly Ash Market Trends:
The exponential growth of the construction industry across the globe represents one of the prime factors driving the market growth. Fly ash is frequently utilized as an additive in concrete and as an alternative to cement due to its improved strength, segregation, and durability, reduced permeability and workload, and ease of pumping. In line with this, the increasing number of infrastructural development and renovation projects, particularly roadways and highway construction, is acting as another growth-inducing factor. Additionally, the large-scale product utilization to manufacture numerous cement-based products, such as concrete blocks, cement bricks, and poured concrete, is contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, the escalating need for clean water across residential and industrial areas has prompted workers to deploy fly ash in wastewater treatment operations as they remove pollutants from the asset. This, in turn, is favoring the market growth. Moreover, the enforcement of stringent green government regulations has intensified the uptake of fly ash as its coal combustion is eco-friendly, which further reduces the burden of disposing of the by-products into landfills and ponds. Apart from this, rapid urbanization, recent mergers and acquisitions (M&A) amongst key players, and extensive research and development (R&D) activities to identify other suitable product deployments are creating a positive outlook for the market. Looking forward, the market value is expected to reach US$ 18.1 Billion by 2028, at a projected CAGR of 5.65% during 2023-2028.
