Highlights
- The global supplementary cementitious material (SCM) market was valued at $74.8 billion in 2014 and over $79.2 billion in 2015. The market should reach $103.2 billion by 2020, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.4% from 2015 to 2020.
- The fly ash market reached over $75.0 billion in 2015, and should reach over $98.0 billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2015 to 2020.
- The global SCM market for slag cement reached over $4.0 billion in 2015 and should reach nearly $5.0 billion by 2020 at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2015 to 2020.

Introduction & Scope

INTRODUCTION
Concrete is the primary material for building of roads, bridges, dams, highways and other infrastructure. Concrete, however, has several drawbacks such as short life and heat emission, and therefore causes harm to the environment. However, incorporation of supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in concrete improves its microstructure and increases resistance to environment hazards. The most-used SCMs are fly ash, ground granulated blast-furnace slag and silica fumes. After addition of SCMs, concrete exhibits lower permeability, increased durability and more resistance to sulfates and seawater. There is greater chemical stability, and therefore concrete has now become high-performance concrete; this has helped to costs, as the structures made from this concrete have a longer life. At current growth rates, consumption of concrete will soon be more than consumption of food. The performance of SCMs is related to what proportion they are used and the performance characteristic required in the concrete. Producers are focused on cost reduction and benefits of obtaining cements and concretes with a higher resistance, as addition of SCMs increases the strength of cement.

STUDY AND OBJECTIVE
- Define the global SCM market.
- Analyze the market by applications and types.
- Estimate market revenues of the global SCM market by region in terms of values and volume.
- Identify market trends, issues and factors impacting the global SCM market.
- Study various applications.
- Discuss opportunities with respect to regions and applications.
- Profile major players and discuss their products.

GLOBAL SUPPLEMENTARY CEMENTITIOUS MATERIALS MARKET DESCRIPTION
SCMs are formed as a by-product of other manufacturing processes. Fly ash, silica fumes and slag cement are the most commonly used products. SCMs are added to concrete mixtures and other building products to enhance the properties of the base material. Fly ash was the largest product segment within the global SCM market in 2014, and the trend is anticipated to remain the same over the forecast period. Slag cement was the second-largest product segment, followed by silica fumes. The outlook for silica fumes is expected to be positive over the forecast period because of the likely increase in silicon output. This report is divided into four main regions: North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world (RoW). Asia-Pacific is the largest market for SCMs. The demand for SCMs in Asia-Pacific, particularly in China and India, is tremendous.

The main application areas of SCMs are cement and concrete. The current trend is to use various SCMs according to their inherent chemical properties and to the eventual purpose of the resulting concrete. SCM-reinforced concrete and cement are used primarily in infrastructure, and therefore the SCM market is impacted by the macroeconomic development of a country.

SCOPE OF THE REPORT

RESEARCH METHODOLOGY
BCC Research implements both primary and secondary research for market estimates and forecasts. Secondary research forms the initial phase of the study, including extensive data mining, referring to verified data sources such as independent studies, government and regulatory published material, technical journals, trade magazines and paid data sources, which form the basis of our estimates. For forecasting, the following parameters were considered:

- Market drivers and restraints, along with current and expected impact.
- Technological scenario and expected developments.
- End-use industry trends and dynamics.
- Trends in consumer behavior.

Weights were assigned to these parameters, and we have quantified their market impact using average analysis, to derive an expected market growth rate. All estimates and forecasts were verified through primary research with stakeholders that typically include:

- Market-leading companies.
- Raw material manufacturers.
- Domain experts.

The key objectives of primary research are as follows:
- To validate data in terms of accuracy and acceptability.
- To gain an insight into the current market and future expectations.

We have used a bottom-up approach for market sizing, analyzing key regional markets, dynamics and trends for various end uses. The global market is estimated by integrating regional markets. When reporting market values or production capacities in kilotons, note that this unit is equal to 1,000 metric tons. All revenue values are reported in current U.S. dollars at the time of this research was conducted, unadjusted for inflation.
