MARKET OVERVIEW

1.1 Definition and scope of study

Cement is a binding material used in the form of powder mixed with water to create a paste that hardens and becomes very resistant. This hardening is due to the components of this material which, when combined with water, form this type of hard paste.  

Globally, the market is growing, driven in particular by Chinese production and consumption in emerging countries. China is the main cement producer with over 50% of world production. It is followed by India, responsible for 8% of world production. 

It is estimated that the value of this market is now (2021) $326.80 billion and will grow at a CAGR of 5.1% over the next few years to reach a value of $458.64 billion in 2028. 

In Italy, the cement market is growing rapidly, both in terms of value and production. In particular, turnover has increased by 1.8% while the total number of companies on Italian soil has increased by 1.2%. The number of employees in this sector, on the other hand, was around 34 thousand in 2019 but has now dropped due to the recent health crisis.

Cement production is mainly concentrated in northern Italy and the data shows a growth of 11.4% in recent years

The most produced cement in Italy is Portland cement. 

A trend to be taken into account within this market is that of sustainability, as cement is considered a material with a high environmental and energy cost. In recent years, given the growing importance of finding environmentally sustainable solutions that do not damage the environment, a type of ecological cement has been developed. This type of material isderived from recycled raw materials with the ability to absorb CO2. 

From the above figures it can be seen that this market is certainly growing and not particularly difficult to penetrate. However, it is important to take into account the environmental aspect and to strive for sustainable solutions.
