The report estimates the cement market in the GCC to post a healthy market growth rate of more than 6% during the forecast period. 

The use of blended cement in Saudi Arabia has been increasing. Blended cement is manufactured by adding pozzolanic materials such as fly ash, silica fume, and slag to the cement clinker and gypsum. This helps to improve the overall quality of the concrete, making it resistant to high temperatures and corrosion. In general, ordinary Portland cement is the most widely used blending material for concrete.

According to the report, one of the major drivers propelling demand for cement in the country is increased investment in the transportation sector. The increase in population and rise in inbound tourism are driving the government to invest significantly in the public transit system.

Further, the report states that the three-year cement export ban in Saudi Arabia is posing a serious challenge for the cement producers. Saudi Arabia has a domestic surplus in cement production and because of the export ban, many of the cement manufacturers are shutting down their production lines in the country.
