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

Published on Jan 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.
