White Cement Market size is likely to be driven by rapid growth in the Asia Pacific construction industry. The product is similar to Portland cement, except for its white color and fineness. The raw materials used for manufacturing white cement contains very low amounts of manganese oxide and iron oxide, which makes the product appear whiter. During its manufacturing process special care must be taken so that kiln fuel, such as coal, does not contaminate it leading to a loss in whiteness. The product is mostly used for decorative works and aesthetic construction projects. They are also used in conjunction with pigments to produce bright colored mortar and concrete. Properties such as consistency in color, superior performance, and high strength will be one of the key factors behind the growth of the white cement market in the forecast period.
The global white cement market will be augmented by the developments in the construction industries in emerging economies. Countries like China, India, Brazil, Indonesia, Thailand, etc. are experiencing fast growths in their respective construction sectors. Economic developments, population rise, increase in income levels & employments, and rapid urbanization have boosted the housing demand in these emerging countries. This has led to the proliferation of their respective civil construction industries over the last decade. Government initiatives to boost infrastructure development in emerging countries have also propelled the construction industries. China marked an investment of more than USD 1.5 billion in real estate investment in 2017, of which residential buildings accumulated a share of more than 70%. Similarly, India is also witnessing fast paced growth in the real estate sector with several corporates shifting their bases in the country. The Indian real estate sector was estimated to be worth around USD 120 billion in 2017, and is projected to reach up to USD 1 trillion by 2030.
However, the white cement market growth may be hampered by the higher cost of white cement when compared to its common counterparts. This can be attributed to the higher energy costs required while manufacturing the product. The use of substitutes such as plastic materials for building activities may also hamper the market development in the forecast period.
The white cement market size has been categorized on the basis of type and application. According to type, the industry is segmented into Portland cement, masonry cement, and others. The others category consists of types such as rapid setting, sulfate resistant, etc. White Portland type will be a key segment that is likely to hold a significant share of the overall industry during the forecast period. This is owing to the product usage for both cast-in-place and precast construction of interior walls, exterior cladding, and floor slabs.
Residential, commercial and infrastructural sectors are the key application segments in the white cement market. Among these, residential construction will account for a substantial share of the industry in the forecast period owing to the increasing personal housing demand in Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East. Infrastructural segment will also hold a significant share and will gain by a fast rate owing to the rapid growth in infrastructural projects across the globe. Commercial segment market growth will be propelled by the rising construction projects for hotels, retail shopping centers, offices, manufacturing plants, and warehouses.
North America and Asia Pacific will be key regional white cement markets. The highly mature nature of the North American construction industry will be an important driving factor for the global market. Additionally, the product demand in North America will be positively influenced by building renovation and restoration activities in the region. Middle East will also be a key market characterized by a fast growth rate owing to the swift rise in residential and commercial construction activities in Saudi Arabia, UAE and other Middle Eastern countries.
