Global Portland Cement Market to Grow at 4%, Bolstered by Expanding Construction Industry

Published on Jan 17, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Portland Cement Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026,” the global Portland cement market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Portland cement refers to a grey-colored construction material manufactured by heating and grinding a mixture of limestone and shale or limestone and clay. It mainly consists of four compounds, namely, dicalcium silicate, tricalcium silicate, tricalcium aluminate, and tetra-calcium aluminoferrite. It has excellent binding properties, strength, durability and is relatively more cost-effective than other building materials. As a result, Portland cement is widely used in the construction of high-rise buildings, dams, bridges, tunnels, and residential and industrial 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.

Global Portland Cement Market Trends:

The expanding construction and infrastructure industries, especially in developing nations, represent the primary factor driving the market. Besides this, the escalating demand for Portland cement in manufacturing concrete, mortar, stucco and grout to make screeds, plasters, roadbeds, and building foundations is bolstering the market growth. Additionally, increasing infrastructural investments and several initiatives undertaken by regional governments, including public housing projects and construction of roads for better connectivity to remote areas, are contributing to the market growth. Furthermore, several international entertainment and sporting events like the FIFA World Cup 2022 are positively impacting the infrastructure sector as hosting such events requires the construction of stadiums, housing facilities and other amenities.
