Cellulose fiber reinforcement is uniformly distributed within concrete to improve its structural integrity. Cellulose fiber reinforced composites have emerged as an eco-friendly alternative and are gaining traction for various low-cost building products. These fibers provide sufficient strength, stiffness, and bonding capacity to cement-based matrices for significant enhancement of their flexural strength, impact resistance, and toughness.
 

These fibers reduce the free plastic shrinkage, improve the acoustic performance & density of the composite and decrease thermal conductivity. Cellulose fibers as a reinforcement material in concrete are economical for improving certain properties such as shear strength, energy absorption capacity and toughness. Cellulose fibers exhibit higher hydrophilicity as it can absorb 85% of its weight in moisture, thus improving the internal curing of the reinforced concrete.
 

The U.S. is one of the leading countries in the construction sector with substantial construction spending. Rising construction expenditure and the increasing demand for single-family & multi-family houses are likely to drive the regional construction industry. These favorable trends associated with construction sector are expected to drive the North America concrete cellulose fiber reinforcement market sales within the forecast period.
 

Cellulose fiber reinforcement has some drawbacks which are likely to limit its consumption. The industrial manufacturing of cement-based composites reinforced with natural fibers, such as cellulose, is currently limited by long-term durability of these materials in the cementitious matrix. The durability is affected by increase in cellulose fiber fracture and a decrease in fiber pull out due to the combination of the weakening of these fibers by alkali attack.
 

Most of the natural fibers have high water absorbing characteristics which leads to poor workability in fresh concrete and degradation in alkaline environment, resulting in reducing the desirable properties such as tensile and compressive strength.
 

Coronavirus pandemic has significantly affected North America’s construction industry. It is likely to hamper North America’s construction output for 2020. Due to rapid decline in new projects and stringent regulations associated with COVID-19, construction output is expected to fall by more than 6.5%, around USD 120 billion for the year 2020.
 

This will in turn create adversity in the North America concrete cellulose fiber reinforcement industry growth for a temporary period. However, as COVID-19 situation normalizes, North America concrete cellulose fiber reinforcement market will gain its original momentum for the next few years.
 

Covid-19 crisis will affect the supply chain dynamics of cellulose fiber owing to transportation bans, labor shortages and trade restrictions. Due to the closing of raw material production facilities, the demand for raw materials will weaken, thereby, directly affecting the operations of cellulose fiber producers.
 

Furthermore, scaling down of operations within processing facilities will hamper the global production & distribution scenario and worsen the product sales in the coming years. In addition, the demand from various end-user applications, such as industrial and commercial sectors, is expected to slow down, generating difficult situations in the North America concrete cellulose fiber reinforcement market in recent years.
