Over the past twenty years, fiber cement composites have gained a cumulative foothold in the global markets. It is a complex material which is mainly used in building and construction. Reinforcement of fibers to cement imparts a number of traits including resistance to cracking, lighter weight and a degree of flexibility which are significant to the application and serviceability of the composite. Fiber cements products are mainly used for cladding and roofing purposes. Additionally, they are used in agriculture for both building and ancillary purposes. Fiber cement products have found its way into the various major application areas including industrial, consumer and agriculture sectors.

Production processes and other related factors such as fiber types, composition ratio plays a significant role in the fiber cement performance or strength and its cost. Different production processes for fiber cement manufacturing are Hatschek, extrusion, perlite and others. Fiber cement is reinforced with fibers, which in its fresh plastic state, is workable into virtually any shape and form. The strong points of fiber cement are its excellent performance in severe weather conditions, favourable vapour permeability, and high toughness at minimal thickness, frost resistance, inflammable nature and biological resistance.

Companies into the production of fiber cement products have to follow guidelines or regulations laid by respective regulatory authorities. Regulations have played a major role in the development of the fiber cement market as these regulations gave rise to the demand for more environment friendly alternatives to be used in the construction industry.

The global fiber cement market is set to experience a considerable growth owing to the strong demand for fiber cement as a result of ban on asbestos. Escalating growth in the urban housing sector of the world, notably in developing economies such as China and India, due to the exponentially growing population has led to a strong demand for construction chemicals and products such as fiber cement.

The overall market is also presented from the perspective of different geographic regions and the key countries in each region. The market has been segmented into four regions North America, Europe, Asia-pacific and Rest of the World. Competitive landscape for industry and market players are profiled with attributes of company overview, financial overview, business strategies, product portfolio and recent developments.
