Growing sustainability trends toward the reduction of carbon dioxide from construction activities will enhance market expansion. Infrastructure development is one of the most crucial sectors of an economy for long-term development. According to Oxford Economics, by 2030, global construction will grow over USD 15 trillion. Supportive regulations introduced by legal bodies such as the U.S. EPA are significantly promoting the carbon-negative manufacturing process of cement. A significant development in the modern construction industry has surged the potential use of green cement in commercial and industrial buildings in the U.S.
The rapid emergence of stringent building codes on GHG emissions for sustainable urban developments has stimulated energy-efficient construction, thereby escalating the demand for eco-friendly construction materials. Green cement offers high bearing & compressive strength, abrasion & chemical resistance, and low susceptibility to moisture compared to conventional cement. With growing economic development, people are migrating to urban areas; therefore, there is a strong need for residential homes in North America. Changing consumer demographics, growing trends of multi-family buildings, multiple homeownership schemes, and growing preference of consumers to deploy green cement for enhanced aesthetics will support market growth.
Lack of awareness, high processing cost, and lower life cycle efficiency are the major factors limiting the North America green market. The elevating COVID crisis in the U.S. has significantly contracted the economic output in the region, thereby adversely affecting the supply chain and the construction industry.
The fly ash green cement is likely to witness a high growth rate through 2026 owing to its high compressive strength and cost-effectiveness. The pozzolanic properties of the product enable it to replace 30% mass of Portland cement in a concrete mixture, thereby improving strength and segregation of the concrete. Fly ash emerges as an economical alternative in road construction projects that use Portland cement concrete as it is highly accepted by the Federal Highway Administration. Increasing acceptance of fly ash in the construction of embankment, factories, and warehouses will escalate green cement demand.
The rising construction of commercial buildings, such as restaurants, subways, civil structures, airports, shopping malls, hypermarkets, warehouses etc has increased the adoption of emerging solutions offering superior performance. An upsurge in modular construction projects and rising remodeling activities will escalate green cement demand in the North America residential sector.
