The global green cement market is expected to witness a robust growth rate of more than 11% during the forecast period of 2022-2028. Green cement is an eco-friendly cement that uses a carbon-negative process of manufacturing. Raw materials used to produce green cement include mostly discarded waste from the industry. Moreover, as green cement is made up of mostly industrial waste, green cement is more economical than conventional cement and can be hybridized easily. Hybridization promotes more sustainable construction, thereby augmenting its demand. Modern buildings built with green cement are rated high in the green homes rating systems and this leads to the growth of green building constructions globally.
Additionally, green cement is a cleaner alternative to traditional cement as it helps to solve the major problem of industrial waste disposable which is a significant contributor to land pollution. Additionally, no fossil fuels are used for the production of green cement which further makes it both economical and eco-friendly. Green cement has a lower shrinkage rate, making it more long-lasting than conventional cement. Also, green cement can withstand the negative impact of acid rain and changing temperatures which further attracts consumers to use them extensively in construction activities. The carbon emission in the production of green cement is at least 40% lower than the production of traditional cement. The increasing focus on sustainable development is leading to the increasing construction of green buildings which is acting as a major driver for the global green cement market.
Government initiatives benefiting the Fly ash-based segment to experience significant growth
Based on type, the fly ash-based segment is dominating the global green cement market and is expected to experience significant growth during the forecast period owing to the pozzolanic properties of the fly ash, favorable government policies, and investment in the development of much more sustainable infrastructure. Additionally, the demand for fly ash is rising due to the growing need for alternative fuels and the recycling of waste and renewable resources in an effort to reduce the excessive quantity of carbon dioxide generated by Ordinary Portland cement (OPC).
The cost-effectiveness and easy access of raw materials like fly ash are boosting the use of fly ash-based green cement in the construction and building sector of growing regions. Usage of green cement widely depends on the application, the properties of the fly ash, specification limits, and the geographic location and climate. Higher levels (30% to 50%) have been used in massive structures (for example, foundations, and dams) to control temperature rise. In recent decades, research has demonstrated that high dosage levels (40% to 60%) can be used in structural applications, producing concrete with good mechanical properties and durability.
The North America region is expected to grow significantly
North America is anticipated to grow at a significant rate over the forecast period as manufacturers in the region are highly investing in the production of green cement so as to curb the carbon footprints resulting from cement production. However, the rising population and growth in construction activities in India, China, and Southeast Asian countries are helping the Asia Pacific green cement market to grow considerably. The Middle East & Africa is projected to witness substantial growth with the increasing demand for the product from the rising infrastructural activities in the region. In Latin America and MEA, the rapidly growing industries and construction activities lead the market to witness moderate growth in the upcoming years.
