Global green cement market by residential segment

Declining family household size and rising interest for residential projects in urban regions will bolster the building and construction segment, especially in developing economies of the world. Rural to urban migration will be especially high in APAC and MEA, and these new urban inhabitants will likely showcase significant interest in multifamily housing projects. Around the world, development of new multifamily housing projects will rise by 3%-4% annually, with 85%-90% of the development occurring in APAC and MEA. Single family housing projects will continue to account for the largest share of new residential units, and this trend will likely boost the global green cement market over the forecast period.

Global green cement market by non-residential segment

By consumption volume, the global green cement market by the non-residential construction segment was valued at close to 41.4 million metric tons in 2015. The non-residential segment consists of commercial buildings such as shops, hotels, restaurants, office spaces, industrial buildings, schools, and hospitals. The non-residential segment of the global green cement market is predicted to fare better than the other two segments of this market, as governments in both developed and developing economies are likely to invest heavily in this segment during the forecast period.

The non-residential sector in the US will grow after a period of descent, leading to the growth of the global non-residential market. To meet the demand from increasing population for entertainment, education, and healthcare infrastructure, developing economies such as China, India, Indonesia, and Brazil will invest heavily in the non-residential segment. This will further bolster the global sales of cement.

Global green cement market by infrastructure segment

It is estimated that USD 57 trillion will be spent on the development of infrastructure worldwide until 2030. An ascent in the demand for public infrastructure from emerging economies will act as a major growth driver for this market during the forecast period. China and India, the two most populous countries in the world, are also the fastest growing economies. This has made their respective governments invest massively in the infrastructure segment.

The rise in demand for energy infrastructure in African countries such as Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, and Egypt will also add to the high cement demand. Middle Eastern countries, including the UAE, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia, are also likely to develop their tourism infrastructure during the forecast period. Qatar will be the host for the FIFA World Cup in 2022, leading to further infrastructure growth in this region. These trends will immensely benefit the global green cement market until 2020.
