Market Overview

The Global Fiber Cement market is expected to register a high  CAGR  during the forecast period of 2022-2029

Fiber concrete is a composite building and construction material, utilized basically in material, roofing, and exterior items as a result of its quality, strength, and toughness. Fiber cement is a prevalent structure material that gives the best advantages in the siding business life span. It is a composite of sand, portland concrete, and cellulose filaments are one of the sustainable materials. These withstand at the unforgiving climate contrasted with different materials.

  • High manufacturing and maintenance cost and dearth in skilled workers are the key restraints that hindering the market growth.
  • The Portland Cement segment in fiber cement market is estimated to reach a market value of US$ XX million by 2026 from an initial market value of US$ 9526.4 million in 2018.

  • The Asia Pacific market value in 2018 is about US$ 5171.5 million. Asia-Pacific region is the largest segment by market share owing to rapid construction activities in the area.

  • The global fiber cement market is fragmented with a larger number of local and international players. James Hardie, Elementia and Etex group are the major players in the fiber cement market globally.

Market Dynamics

Growing construction industry, increasing demand due to extreme environmental conditions, considered a safer alternative than other conventional materials, availability of a large variety of fiber cement products, anti-microbial properties of fiber cement products are indispensable in certain applications, lightweight fiber cement products facilitate transportation and helps in cost saving are the major factors driving the growth of the market globally. Fiber Cement products can be considered as a safer alternative than other conventional materials. More than 90% of the materials used in boards and sidings are fire resistant. This is a major USP of fiber cement products as homeowners are particularly wary of a fire in their house. A documented case showed that a fire destroyed some fire trucks which were 100 feet away from the fire, but a nearby house constructed with fiber cement was completely protected.

The Fiber Cement Market is growing due to rising demand from the construction industry. The growth in the fiber cement market is a result of a boom in the construction industry, a ban on asbestos cement products, the high efficiency of fiber cement products, and rapid urbanization and industrialization in developing countries. In addition, the increase in infrastructure investments has created an opportunity for the global fiber cement market. New residential construction spending was projected to be approximately 672 billion (current) U.S. dollars by 2022. Rising investment in construction, particularly in new housing is driving the growth of the market. For instance, construction investments in Western Europe reached USD 1.4 trillion in 2015 and are expected to grow by 2.2% in 2018.

 

High manufacturing and maintenance cost and dearth of skilled workers are the key restraints hindering the market growth. Fiber cement manufacturers face unprecedented challenges due to the high cost of the product. The manufacturing process for fiber cement is such that it adds up to the cost of the final product. Generally, they cost up to 3 to 4 times more than conventional materials. Fiber cement boards need to be repainted every 15 to 20 years. Thus maintenance cost is also high. Installation of fiber cement fixtures requires more manpower who are skilled in handling the fiber cement boards, as they are susceptible to damage when not handled properly.

Market Segmentation

Based on material, the global market for fiber cement is broadly segmented as portland cement, sand, cellulosic material, and others. The Portland Cement segment in fiber cement market is estimated to reach a market value of US$ XX million by 2026 from an initial market value of US$ 9526.4 million in 2018. The market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.02% in the forecast period 2018 to 2026. Portland cement is the most widely used manufactured material possessing good tensile strength. Portland cement is of various types based on different properties such as Type 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 1A, 2A and 3A exhibiting high durability and strength. The rising demand for making concrete, stucco, mortar, and grout is contributing to the demand for Portland cement during the forecast period. Also, low cost and ease of availability of the materials required for manufacturing Portland cement including limestone, naturally occurring materials, and shale are expected to boost the growth of the market.

On the basis of fiber type, the global market for fiber cement is classified into polypropylene, PVA, lignocellulose, carbon, and others. The Polypropylene fiber type segment is estimated to reach a market value of US$ XX million by 2026 from an initial market value of US$ 5171.5 million in 2018. The Polypropylene fiber type segment accounted for the largest market share of about 38% in 2018 because of its high toughness strength, high-temperature resistance, and affordable price. The capability of resisting weathering action, chemical attack and other degradation processes with minimal maintenance is an important factor with respect to the construction industry. Development of polypropylene fiber-reinforced concrete (PFRC) has benefited the construction industry by providing a technical basis for improving deficiencies in the earlier used concrete materials. The major role of this fiber in the concrete composite is to control cracks, increase the tensile strength, toughness as well as to improve the deformation characteristics of the concrete.

Depending on production process, the global market for fiber cement is categorized into hatschek process, perlite, extrusion, and others. Based on application, the global market for fiber cement is divided into residential, non-residential, commercial and others.
