Global cement market for residential end-users: Changes in population density, basically because of rural to urban migration, and the subsequent need for housing is one of the key drivers behind the demand for cement from residential end-users. Majority of the developments pertaining to housing is anticipated to be centered around APAC and MEA.

Around 38 million new housing units are likely to be developed in APAC during the forecast period, representing more than 60% of the global share in 2021. A decline in family household size and rising interest for residential projects in urban regions will boost the growth of the building and construction segment, especially in developing economies,” says Ajay Adikari, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on metals and minerals.

Global cement market for non-residential end-users: The non-residential segment consists of commercial buildings such as shops, hotels, restaurants, office spaces, industrial buildings, schools, and hospitals. Governments in both developed and developing economies are likely to invest heavily in the non-residential segment during the forecast period, thus subsequently propelling the demand for cement from non-residential end-users.

Global cement market for infrastructure end-users: Infrastructural development activities in countries such as China and India is likely to be the primary driving force behind the growth of the global cement market for infrastructural end-users. The rise in the demand for energy infrastructure in African countries such as Nigeria, South Africa, Ghana, and Egypt is also anticipated to favor the market’s growth over the next four years.
