Fiber Cement Market to Reach USD 18.3 Billion by 2032 Driven by Rising Demand from The Construction Industry | Report by SNS Insider


Pune, July 08, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The SNS Insider report estimates the Fiber Cement Market Size at USD 13.0 billion in 2023, with a projected CAGR of 3.9% to reach USD 18.3 billion by 2032.  

The fiber cement market is gaining momentum due to a surge in demand for durable and eco-friendly building materials; this has turned out to be the major requirement of the construction industry. This growth is led by product innovations that enhance material properties while reducing costs. For instance, in September 2023, Nuvoco Vistas launched Duraguard Microfiber Cement, a high-strength and ultra-durable concrete made with certain new materials, such as clinker and electrostatically precipitated dry fly ash. Growing demand for fire-resistant material, enforced by different stringent regulations in regions highly prone to fire incidents, such as Australia, also fueled the demand for fiber cement. One of the major 2023 US construction projects underway will apply fiber cement siding due to its strength in unfriendly weather. These advancements, coupled with regulatory support and growing applications in residential and commercial construction, position fiber cement for substantial growth.

The fiber cement market’s growth dynamics are influenced by its environmental advantages, featuring natural components like cellulose fibers, sand, and cement. These eco-friendly attributes appeal to industries seeking alternatives to conventional materials such as wood and vinyl. Despite challenges like initial costs, fiber cement’s long-term benefits—like durability, pest resistance, and low maintenance—drive adoption. Investments in R&D and building up new manufacturing facilities aim to enhance fiber cement’s properties, including thermal insulation and weight reduction, broadening its applicability across construction sectors. For instance, In March 2024, Shera launched a USD 36 million production hub in Pampanga, Philippines, scaling operations to meet local construction demand. Led by Thunnop Jumpasri, the facility began in 2023, aiming for full capacity by October 2024 with plans to double output and create 150 jobs. Similarly, Everest Industries opened a USD22.6 million plant in Chamarajanagar, Karnataka, producing fiber cement boards and Rapicon wall panels since March 2024. These innovations are pivotal in propelling market expansion, supported by ongoing regulatory shifts towards sustainable building practices.
