A booming market
Every second, 146,000 kilograms of cement are poured around the world, or 4.6 billion tons per year, the equivalent of 19,000 Empire State Buildings!
Cement has a low value/weight ratio, resulting in high transport costs. Cement production remains primarily local: an average of 95% of the cement consumed in the world is used in the country of production. In order to be competitive, cement manufacturers generally install their production units close to large reserves of limestone and clay with easy access to a reliable energy source.
Population growth is creating additional housing needs, and cities are looking to reorganize their infrastructure model to accommodate an aging population. More importantly, increasing urbanization in developing countries and the rise of a global middle class will create sustained demand for new commercial and living spaces, supporting the cement market over the long term.
