Global Portland Cement Market to Reach 2.7 Billion Tons by 2027, Bolstered by Expanding Construction Industry

January 17, 2021

The latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Portland Cement Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027,” the global Portland cement market reached a volume of 2.1 Billion Tons in 2021. Portland cement is a grey-colored inorganic substance that is used in various construction activities. It consists of four compounds, namely, dicalcium silicate, tricalcium silicate, tricalcium aluminate, and tera-chemical aluminoferrite. It is manufactured by combining elements such as calcium, silicon, iron, aluminum, limestone, shale, and clay. These materials are readily available and occur naturally, making them cost-efficient. Portland cement offers high durability and strength with excellent binding properties. As a result, it is increasingly used in the construction of high-rise buildings, dams, bridges, tunnels, and residential complexes.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.
