The global concrete and cement market valued US$449.4 billion in 2012. The Asia-Pacific region was the largest regional market and accounted for 58.1% of the global market.  The Asia-Pacific concrete and cement market valued US$261.1 billion in 2012, recording a CAGR of 14.78% during the review period, outperforming all other regional markets. China constituted the largest share of the regional market, with a 71.4% share in 2012.

With a value of US$193.9 billion and a 43.2% market share in 2012, Portland cement was the largest category in the global concrete and cement market. Ready-mix concrete was the second-largest category in 2012. In terms of growth, refractory cements, mortars and concretes is expected to be the fastest-growing category in the global concrete and cement market over the forecast period, with a CAGR of 9.62%.

A sharp decline in the demand for Chinese products means that net exports have ceased to be the driving force behind the Chinese economy. Furthermore, debt and investment-fueled economic growth has accelerated the Chinese total debt-to-GDP ratio; development that will force the Chinese to reduce spending on infrastructure and manufacturing capacity.
