The global concrete and cement market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.85% during the period 2016-2020.

The demand for cement remains unaffected despite price fluctuations. Over the years, cement has replaced other binding materials such as lime and clay. Cement manufacturing takes place in bulk and in a controlled environment. If stored under favorable conditions, the durability of cement is relatively long. Different types of cement are air-entraining cement, blast furnace slag cement, colored cement, high alumina cement, hydrographic cement, low heat cement, pozzolanic cement, quick setting cement, and white cement.

The process of cement manufacturing involves the release of hazardous wastes. Quarry operations and crushing may result in physical injuries or loss of life. Improvement of safety standards by altering the work environment is becoming one of the prime focuses of employers. Particular attention is laid on training workers to avoid injuries and respond suitably to accidents at sites. Advances in technology have also helped by enabling the continual monitoring of emission levels.

According to the report, the supportive policy measures from governments and regulators, and an increase in disposable income in the middle-class population are some of the factors spurring the affordable housing market.

Further, the report states that one of the major challenges faced by the market is excessive logistics expenditure.
