Global calcium aluminate cement market is anticipated to grow significantly in the forecast period owing to the increase in applications in construction industry. Calcium aluminate cement (CAC) is basically used in high heat refractory applications, moderate acid-resistant purposes, quick setting mixtures, and offers quick strength.
Additionally, it provides compressive strength, elastic modulus, splitting tensile strength, mass loss stress-strain response, and compressive toughness. Calcium aluminate cement is mixed with suitable substrates for special applications where their unique properties display an advantage. They are similar to the Portland cement, only with the difference that calcium aluminate cement offers faster strength than Portland cement.
Calcium aluminate cement market is driven by easy availability, various end use applications, such as water treatment, ceramics manufacturing, and cement formulations, ladle furnace desulfurization, metallurgy, high-performance binders, and mineral reagents. Moreover, increasing focus on expanding product range to meet the growing needs is driving the market growth.
Calcium aluminate cement market is witnessing few trends, such as new product launches by the prominent market players and technological advancements by manufacturers. Moreover, leading players are increasingly adopting growth strategies like mergers and acquisition and other innovative business strategies for establishing better market position.
Market is categorized on the basis of product type, application, end user, and geography. On the basis of type, market is divided into low-alumina calcium aluminate cement, medium-alumina calcium aluminate cement, and high-alumina calcium aluminate cement. High-alumina calcium aluminate cement segment is expected to lead the market due to increased number of small scale and specialized applications.
Based on application, calcium aluminate cement market is split into sewer applications, special road & construction, industry kiln, and others. Special road and construction segment is predicted to hold larger share of the market since it offers efficiency at extreme temperatures. For the construction applications, calcium aluminate cement offers speedy strength development. In sewer infrastructure applications, the product acts as a protective liner for microbial corrosion.
In terms of end users, market is divided into sewage pipes, high-alumina refractories (monolithic and shaped), high-performance blended cement and concrete, pipe and waste water, and others. High-alumina refractories (monolithic and shaped) is anticipated to lead the market in the future.
Geographically, calcium aluminate cement industry is segmented as North America, South America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Middle East & Africa. North America is expected to dominate the market due to increase in demand for various infrastructural activities. Moreover, Asia Pacific leads the market due to growing industrialization and speedy urbanization.
