EUROPE GREEN CEMENT MARKET
1.The Europe green cement market was substantially growing and also renovating the infrastructures in the UK, Italy, Poland, Sweden and France.
2.The cost increase in energy and depleting the fuel resources are becoming demanding factors for rapid growth of green cement in Europe.
3.The regulatory bodies such as Environmental permitting regulations, Pollution prevention control are introducing the new legislation and incentives likewise quarrying and extraction taxes to regulate activities of the high industrial sectors.
4.The Europe has become the largest exporter of green cement across the world and governments of developed nations in Europe are continuously working on economic stability by concerning policies and also decreasing the trade volatility.
5.Due to new policies, several nations in Europe including Germany, Spain, France and Italy had witnessed the growth in “Foreign Direct Investments”. The rise of “Foreign Direct Investment” had boosted up the green construction projects.
The green cement is composed of fly, Which shows good properties like enhanced bending and compressive strength compared to ordinary concrete. Apart from carbon dioxide reductions, It also offers value added things likewise fire resistance, mechanical strength, creep, static behaviour, corrosion protection, frost, workability, curing etc.
Green cement has capability to resist fire up to a temperature of 2,400℉ and this factor will increase the consumption of green cement in the upcoming years. The rising government directives such as EC Directive 2010/75/EU in Europe, Will increase the implementation of using green cement in the construction projects like dams, bridges and columns.
The European government was concentrating on Research and Innovations for sustainable growth of green cement. The new strategic collaborations and product development with cost reduction will improve performance of key industrial players in the market.
FACTORS CONTRIBUTE THE GROWTH OF GREEN CEMENT MARKET IN EUROPE
1.Increasing construction and renovation of educational infrastructures and office buildings.
2.The policies mandating energy efficient structures and decreasing trade volatilities.
3.The increase in demand for sustainable products and strict carbon emission regulations.
4.Recuperation in commercial construction.
EUROPE GREEN CEMENT MARKET SEGMENTATION
By Product Type
- Fly ash based
- Slag based
- Recycled aggregates
The fly ash based segment holds the largest market share in 2020 and is predicted to remain dominant in upcoming years.The fly ash based green cement provides cost reduction and which is the major factor for its growing demand in the recent years.
The other important thing is composition of these types of cement provide better compressive strength than other green cements.
By Application Type
The commercial segment dominated in recent years. Progressive Infrastructure advancement is one of the key important factors for the rapid growth of green cement in commercial applications.
- United Kingdom
CHALLENGES FACED BY CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
The construction industry is recovering from the financial and economic crisis in the post pandemic. The main challenges faced by the construction industry are
The efficiency improvements in existing construction projects and renovations have become the major factors for stimulating demand.
Offering new specialized training to blue collar workers, technings colleges and universities for rapid improvement of the construction sector.
Uptaking more trending technologies and rigorous research on the construction sector will help to increase more projects plus reduce unemployment.
4.Energy efficiency and climate change
Buildings account for the largest share of total EU final energy consumption takes place to 40% and produce about 35% of all greenhouse gas emissions.
EUROPEAN COMMISSION OBJECTIVES TO BOOST CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY
1.Quantifying the impacts of EU legislation on the construction sector.
2.Ensuring the full implementation of the construction products regulation.
3.Consulting the internal market players for construction products by developing a technical language for optimizing the performance of construction products.
4.Developing the strategy for the sustainable competitiveness of the construction sector and its enterprises, Which improves training, tendering and financing of the construction sector.
5.Following on the communications on resource efficiency opportunities in the building sector to improve the design, construction, demolition and recycling of construction products plus simplifying the data in the use of resources to reduce waste.
6.Working on the construction projects strategy and circular economy package by introducing the EU construction and demolition waste proposal to raise the confidence in the C & D waste management process and building the trust in the quality of C & D recycled materials.
7.Collaborating with the construction sector and it’s SMEs to digitalize and atomize by supporting the building information modelling in the public sector.
The European green cement market is mixed with the existence of global players and local players. The global players dominate the market and create problems for the local vendors to sustain by concentrating on innovations as well as prices.
The key players are targeting technology advancements and strategic acquisitions to widen inorganically by achieving the small local players during the forecast period. The competition in the market is expected to intensify with the introduction of many innovative manufacturing processes.
Some of the competitive players include LafargeHolcim, HeidelBergCement AG, Anhui Conch Cement, CEMEX S.A.B d.e. C.V.,Taiheiyo Cement Corporation, Votorantim Cimentos S.A, Ultra Tech Cement, Taiwan Cement Corporation and ACC limited.
