Green Cement Is Rising In Popularity Among Green Building Materials Market Trends

The Business Research Company's green building materials market research report expands on key drivers, trends, and growth opportunities in the market.

LONDON, July 12, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The search for better, stronger, and more durable concrete has always been a priority for the construction sector. Green cement, therefore, appears to be the ideal option. Green cement is cement that is made with a carbon-negative manufacturing technique. Most of the rejected garbage from industry serves as one of the primary raw materials utilized to make green cement. To produce green cement, blast furnace slag and fly ash are the main ingredients. The amount of carbon dioxide released while manufacturing green cement is remarkably low, lowering the carbon footprint by 40%. It is a less expensive and environmentally friendly alternative to traditional cement because it utilizes industrial waste as a raw material.


In February 2021, ACC Ltd., an India-based cement producer, launched ECOPact, its new low-carbon range of ready-mixed concrete. The introduction of ECOPact is crucial in advancing the shift to low-carbon and circular construction, decreasing CO2 emissions by up to 100%.

The global green building materials market size is expected to grow from $238.91 billion in 2021 to $276.13 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 15.6%. The green building materials market growth is expected to reach $421.64 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 11.2%.
