Portland Cement Market for Residential, Commercial, Infrastructure and Other Applications (Bricks, Farm Construction, etc.) - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020

Portland cement is an important aspect of construction industry and it is used in a broad range of construction applications. The commercial applications of portland cement include residential construction, commercial constructions, infrastructure and others. The volume generated by the global portland cement market was 3,670.8 million tons in 2013.This market is expected to reach 5,165.1 million tons by 2019 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% between 2014 and 2020. 

Residential and infrastructure construction applications accounted for the largest share of the portland cement market in terms of both volume and revenue with over 70.0% share of total volume consumed in 2013. Portland cement used in commercial construction applications was the third largest product segment of portland cement followed by others. The portland cement industry exhibits a high degree of backward integration as majority of portland cement producers are also engaged in its upstream activities. This backward integration gives these participants a distinctive competitive advantage in terms of better raw material supply and better market dominance.

The demand for portland cement mainly stems from the growing construction activities across the globe. Growing urbanization in Asia Pacific has led to increased demand for housing and infrastructure development which has led to increased demand for Portland cement in this region. Countries such as China and India are expected to be the major drivers for Portland cement in the near future. These countries are expected to invest in infrastructure development in order to build basic infrastructure facilities. These investments are anticipated to boost the demand for Portland cement in this region. Further, Brazil and Russia will host international tournaments such as Olympic Games and FIFA World Cup in 2016 and 2018 respectively. Such massive events require world-class infrastructure development in the form of stadiums and other ancillary amenities. In preparation for the FIFA World Cup in 2018, the Russian government has allocated approximately USD 16 billion to developing essential infrastructure. These factors are expected to drive the demand for cement in Russia and Brazil in the next few years.

Portland cement used for residential construction was the major application of portland cement accounting for about 45% of the portland cement market. There has been as increase in demand for portland cement used for residential construction due to the growing need for new residential units in Asia Pacific region. Also, in North America the construction sector is expected to witness stable growth in the next few years, on the backdrop of recent economic revival. The growth of portland cement market is likely to be restricted by the environmental regulations being put forth across various regions. Cement production is one of the most energy intensive processes and demand large amounts of energy during the production process. Several countries across the globe are expected to implement various regulations pertaining to the emissions from cement industry which might act as a damper to the growth of portland cement industry.

Asia Pacific was the dominant market for portland cement in 2013 accounting for around 60% shares in total consumption. North America and Europe followed Asia Pacific as the major markets for portland cement consumption. Leading portland cement manufacturers have concentrated on capacity expansion in Asia Pacific to increase their production capacities. Therefore growing construction sector in developed as well as emerging economies is expected to drive the demand for portland cement in the next few years. 

In the recent past, industry participants have shifted their focus on customer retention and providing quality products to its customers. Some of the key market participants operating in the portland cement market include Lafarge SA, Holcim, Heidelberg Cement, CNBM, Anhui Conch, Italcementi and UltraTech Cement Ltd. among others.
