Fly Ash Market by Type (Class F, Class C), by Application (Cement Industry, Agriculture, Chemical Industry), by Region (Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, South America) – Global Forecast 2019 to 2025

Fly Ash Market: Summary

The Global Fly Ash Market is estimated to reach USD XX.X Billion by 2025 at a CAGR of XX.X %.

Fly ash is a fine powder that is derived from the combustion of powdered coal that is extracted from the flue gases of the boiler and collected by either mechanical or Electrostatic Precipitators (ESP). It is the unburned residue that is carried away from the burning zone in the boiler by the flue gases. Fly ash is widely used as supplementary cementitious material in the production of portland cement concrete.

Fly Ash Market: Drivers & Restraints

Market Drivers:

  • Growing Construction and Infrastructure Activities

The increasing population is the major driver for the growth of construction and infrastructure activities. The construction activity in developed and developing economies, which is generating demand for fly ash which is used for the manufacturing of building materials such as concrete, cement, bricks, etc. As per the Global Construction 2030 report, by 2030 the volume of the global construction is projected to grow by 85%, wherein, China, the US, and India would account for 57% of the global growth. Furthermore, As per the Invest India report, by 2025, the construction market in India is projected to emerge as the third-largest market globally.

Thus, the growth in construction and infrastructure is likely to upsurge the market growth during the forecast period.

  • Low Cost and Easy Availability

Coal is the most easily available fuel for power generation globally, and ever-increasing demand for electricity will continue to make use of coal as an easily available energy source. The fly ash is a by-product of the coal-fired power generation plant. Moreover, As per the IEA report, over the coming five years the global coal demand will remain stable, supported by the Asia Pacific market, which accounts for more than 55% consumption on the global market.

Hence, the aforementioned factors are expected to drive the global fly ash market during the forecast period.

Market Restraints:

  • Disadvantages of fly ash usage

Fly ash is primarily used as an admixture in concrete to replace some portion of portland cement. Using fly ash in concrete is environmental friendly as it reduces the Portland cement (a major contributor of CO2) required in concrete. Fly ash mixed concrete improves the overall cement performance but it has some disadvantages such as, slow strength gain which means a delay in construction timeframe, as it takes a long time to set the concrete in low temperatures especially in the winter season. 

These are some factors that will hamper market growth in the upcoming timespan.
