The Business Research Company's Cement And Concrete Products Market 2021 - Opportunities And Strategies – Global Forecast To 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON , UK, November 18, 2021 / / -- The increased use of alternative raw materials in cement production is delivering improved quality of products and reducing the environmental impact. The main raw material used in cement production has traditionally been limestone. About 60% of the industry's CO2 emissions are caused by decarbonation of limestone during the production process. The innovations and R&D projects in the industry have already replaced some of the natural raw materials with waste and by-products from other industrial processes. The waste and by-products elements such as calcium, silica, alumina and iron are used as alternative binding materials instead of natural substances such as clay, shale and limestone in cement production. In Europe, for example, about 3-4% of the raw materials used in the production of clinker consists of alternative raw materials and ashes from fuel, totaling about 14.5 million tonnes a year. The clinker-to-cement ratio in the EU27 is 73.7%, whereas ordinary Portland cement can contain up to 95% of clinker and the remaining 5% of gypsum.

Governments globally are increasingly spending on infrastructure projects, which are expected to stimulate the demand for cement and concrete products during the forecast period. Many countries are focusing on the renovation of old infrastructure and cater to the increasing populations. In 2016, Canada, for instance, has announced infrastructure investments of more than $180 billion over a span of 12 years, of which $28.7 billion will be spent on public transit systems. Under Germany's 2030 Federal Transport Infrastructure Plan, the government plans to invest $147.6 billion to build roads in the country. In November 2020, the UK government announced a GBP 100 billion ($133.5 billion) infrastructure plan to upgrade the country's infrastructure and over the next four years' government plans to increase spending to GBP 600 billion ($801.0) on infrastructure. This infrastructure development project includes construction of 860,000 new houses, as well as new roads, cycle lanes, community facilities and development of 4G broadband across 95% of the UK by 2025. Increasing infrastructure spending by governments is expected to drive the demand for cement, contributing to the growth of the cement and concrete products market going forward.
