World Cement

As Quoted In International Construction

Global cement demand will rise 4.1 percent annually through 2013. Gains will be fueled by rising infrastructure investment in developing countries and improved markets in developed areas. Blended cement will increase its dominant position over portland. Ready-mix concrete will remain the fastest-growing outlet.

This study analyzes the 2.8 billion metric ton world cement industry. It presents historical demand data for the years 1998, 2003 and 2008, and forecasts for 2013 and 2018 by type (e.g., blended, portland), market (e.g., ready-mix concrete, construction contractors, consumer, concrete products), world region (e.g., Asia/Pacific, Africa/Mideast) and for 46 major countries.

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 34 industry participants, including Lafarge, Holcim and CEMEX.
