Industry Trend

Green Cement Market size exceeded USD 609.3 million in 2019 and will grow at a CAGR of 4.8% from 2020 to 2026. Rising infrastructure and construction activities, such as constructing bridges, under passes, sewage, etc., have increased the demand for green cement in the construction industry. Moreover, the construction industry has a vital link with several diverse industries, such as logistics, energy, manufacturing, etc., is likely to increase the demand by its low carbon emission rates.

Green cement is highly environment friendly and durable, with the ability to overcome major drawbacks of conventional cement. In addition, green cement being hydrophobic in nature makes it a good chemical resistance for structures and is preferred over other cements. It possesses high impact and compressive strength, good bearing strength, resistance to thawing and freezing, endurance towards chemical attack & abrasion, and low moisture penetrability.

Furthermore, the major property of this cement is the low carbon dioxide content it holds. This makes it safer for construction workers as well as the environment. The green cement is used in various applications such as bridges, structural elements, commercial buildings, modern industrial infrastructure, power plants, etc. The increasing need for construction of factories, warehouses, and other public infrastructures with minimum carbon dioxide levels along with pollution concerns to maintain emission levels and environment regulations will boost the green cement market revenue.

Developing economies particularly from the Asia Pacific region are the fastest growing infrastructure and construction markets propelled by high industrial growth rate where governments are spending extensively for public construction. For instance, the Chinese construction industry has witnessed a remarkable growth in the recent years. Ever since the Belt and road initiative, Chinese contractors had actively invested in numerous infrastructure projects including around 20,000 construction contracts along with the belt and road initiative globally.

Many organizations in this region are entering into strategic acquisitions in order to expand their reach. For example, Teijin Limited, a Japanese industry, has acquired Continental Structural Plastics Holdings Corporation (CSP), an international leader in automotive lightweight composite technologies. This trend is likely to generate abundant market opportunities, which would subsequently fuel the market demand by 2026.

The major limitation of applying green cement is that building structures have lesser life compared to the structures created by the conventional portland cement. Furthermore, in comparison with conventional cement, the green cement possesses reduced compressive strength and higher shrinkage and creeping properties.

Owing to these disadvantages, it cannot be used in significant infrastructures such as dams, flyovers, etc. Additionally, with the spread of coronavirus pandemic, the construction industry globally has observed a major drawback, which, in turn, is proving to be an obstacle for the green cement market.

Fly-ash based green cement is anticipated to lead the market share

Fly-ash based green cement dominated the product segment with above 40% market share in 2019. It produces the lowest amounts of carbon dioxide during its mixing processes. However, the cost effectiveness of this product is one of the primary reasons for its growing demand in the recent years. The composition of these types of cements is comparatively simpler with better compressive strength than other green cements.


Commercial buildings are projected to garner the maximum consumption
