Saudi Arabia Green Cement Market is anticipated to grow robustly in the forecast period 2024-2028. One of the key reasons propelling the market's expansion is the booming building sector and rising environmental concerns. Green cement is a term used to describe a typical cement created using a carbon-negative production technique. It is made using cutting-edge technical procedures that reduce emissions during unit operations. Various industrial by-products, including fly ash, blast furnace slag, aluminosilicates, and recovered industrial waste, are used to make green cement. The GCC countries are deciding to use green cement at an accelerated rate due to rising worries about environmental pollution and climate change.

Rapid Urbanization and Growing Less Carbon Emission Awareness

The green cement market is experiencing rapid growth due to factors such as rapid urbanization of emerging nations, the expansion of building & construction activities, the rise in demand for single-family houses, etc. Market expansion is a result of rising disposable income and shifting consumer lifestyles.

The demand for green cement has been driven by rising understanding of the need to minimize carbon emissions and their harmful impact on the environment. Since it consumes fewer natural resources in manufacturing and emit less carbon dioxide, it is anticipated to gain greater market share throughout the projected period.

An important driver responsible for the increase in green cement production is the growing awareness of greenhouse gas emissions associated with cement manufacturing, reducing such emissions by up to 40%. The manufacturing of green cement uses almost 60% less thermal energy than that of ordinary Portland cement (OPC), which results in a greater than 60% reduction in GHG emissions for every ton of OPC. Additionally, the green cement lowers the "heat island effect" by making concrete more reflective.
