Blended cement is sustainable cement prepared by substituting a part of the traditional Portland cement clinker with high-blending materials, such as silica fume, fly ash, slag, & limestone. It is witnessing high demand worldwide owing to its benefits like improved durability, strength, workability, & chemical resistance of concrete, as well as significantly reduced carbon emissions.
The Global Blended Cement Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of around 3.6% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-28. Most of the market expansion would be driven by rapid urbanization across different countries, numerous ongoing & upcoming building & construction projects associated with both residential & non-residential sectors, and massive investments in infrastructure developments related to roads, bridges, dams, public utility structures, airports, military facilities, & power plants, etc.
Globally, India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Philippines, & Nigeria are emerging as highly lucrative areas for blended cement manufacturers owing to their booming construction industries with an exponentially increasing number of commercial & residential buildings. On the other front, the market growth is decent in the US, Poland, South Korea, & Turkey.
