Increasing demand from the expanding construction sector in the emerging economies of India, Russia, China, and Brazil is a major factor for the positive outlook of the industry.

The product is manufactured using waste materials such as recycled concrete, slag, quarrying and mining wastes, and power plant wastes. The product is gaining high demand to replace porcelain cement owing to the environmentally friendly properties associated with it. Rising attention towards carbon gas emission and its impact on the environment is expected to propel product demand over the projected period.

U.S. green cement market

In the U.S., the residential segment emerged as a dominant segment and accounted for 43.7% of the total revenue share in 2015. This can be attributed to the increasing demand for greener and environment-friendly homes. The commercial segment is the second-largest segment accounted for 30.6% of the revenue share in 2015 owing to strict regulation policies to by Environment Protection Agency (EPA).
