[Research Report] The fiber cement market size is expected to grow from US$ 21,748.45 million in 2022 to US$ 33,052.23 million by 2028; it is estimated to record a CAGR of 7.2% from 2022 to 2028.

Fiber cement is commonly used as an exterior siding material as it offers excellent durability and weather and fire resistance. Additionally, fiber cement is often used as a roofing material due to its ability to withstand harsh weather conditions, such as heavy rain, hail, and wind. Moreover, fiber cement can also be used for trim and fascia work, as it is easy to shape and can be painted or stained to match the building’s exterior. It is also frequently used in commercial buildings, such as hospitals, schools, and office buildings, as it offers a low-maintenance, durable option for their exteriors.

In 2022, Asia Pacific held the largest revenue share of the global fiber cement market. The demand for fiber cement is increasing in Asia Pacific due to the growing awareness regarding the benefits of fiber cement. This region has been noticed as one of the prominent markets for the utilization of fiber cement boards owing to the surge in construction activities. Moreover, government initiatives and policies such as Make-in-India encourage the setup of different manufacturing plants in India. Rising foreign direct investments also lead to economic growth in the region. The growing number of fiber cement board uses in numerous residential and nonresidential sectors is anticipated to increase the fiber cement board demand in Asia Pacific in the coming years. In India, the construction industry is the second largest industry after agriculture, accounting for about 11% of the country's GDP. The building & construction industry is a strong contributor to the market's growth.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Fiber Cement Market

The construction sector has been the major contributor to the demand for fiber cement. The COVID-19 pandemic adversely affected the growth of the chemicals & materials sector and fiber cement market. The implementation of measures to combat the spread of SARS-CoV-2 negatively impacted the growth of various industries. Industries such as packaging, consumer goods, automotive & transportation, textiles, and building & construction were adversely affected by the disruptions in operational efficiencies and value chains due to the sudden closure of national and international boundaries. During the COVID-19 pandemic, falling revenue and increasing project delivery challenges led to the sector’s contraction in most markets, with a corresponding negative impact on the labor force. Builders experienced delays and increased costs for imported raw materials and off-site building materials due to many factories being shut down for long periods. The damage to the building & construction industry hampered the demand for fiber cement during the pandemic.

Surging Demand for Energy-Efficient Buildings Bolsters Fiber Cement Market Growth

According to the Energy Sector Management Assistance Program, nearly one-third of global energy is consumed in residential, public, and commercial buildings for space cooling, heating, ventilating, cooking, refrigerating, lighting, water heating, and operating electric and mechanical devices. Modernizing cities in developing countries and increasing per capita income propel energy use in buildings across the world. High energy consumption in public, residential, and commercial buildings create a need for energy savings. According to the International Energy Agency, buildings are expected to account for ∼41% of global energy savings potential by 2035, and the industrial sector and transport sector will hold 24% and 21%, respectively. A layer of fiber cement is applied to the building to reduce heat transfer through the walls, keeping the interior warmer in winter and cooler in summer, which helps reduce energy consumption. According to the ASHRAE Fundamentals Handbook, fiber cement has an R-value of 0.15, which is better than the value of brick and stone.

Type Insights

Based on type, the global fiber cement market is bifurcated into air-cured and autoclaved. The autoclaved segment held a larger market share in 2022. Autoclaved fiber cement is made from a mixture of cement, sand, cellulose fibers, and other additives. The mixture is formed into sheets or boards and then cured in an autoclave, which is a high-pressure vessel that applies heat and steam to the material. The autoclaving process causes a chemical reaction that strengthens the material, making it more durable and resistant to water, fire, and pests. It is generally used in a wide range of applications, including roofing, siding, flooring, and as a backing for ceramic tiles. Moreover, autoclaved fiber cement is also known for its versatility and design flexibility, as it can be made to mimic the appearance of other building materials, such as wood or stone. It is also available in various colors and textures, making it a popular choice for both residential and commercial construction projects.

James Hardie Industries plc, Etex NV, Swisspearl Group AG, CSR Ltd, NICHIHA Corp, Plycem Construsistemas Costa Rica SA, Compagnie de Saint Gobain SA, Century Plyboards Ltd, Everest Industries Ltd, and Isam Khairi Kabbani Group are a few key players operating in the global fiber cement market.

    Frequently Asked Questions


    Which is the largest region of the global fiber cement market?

    Asia Pacific accounted for the largest share of the global fiber cement market. Asia Pacific is one of the most significant regions for the fiber cement market owing to surging demand for energy-efficient buildings.

    What are the key drivers for the growth of the global fiber cement market?

    Durability is one of the most desirable qualities of fiber cement. Fiber cement siding, boards, and panels typically outlast vinyl siding and other alternative products in lifespan. Within 10 to 15 years, vinyl siding can show signs of aging, whereas fiber cement siding can last up to 30 to 50 years or more. Further, in cement production, carbon dioxide is a byproduct. However, manufacturing vinyl siding containing polyvinyl chloride (PVC) produces more carbon dioxide than cement production. Hence, fiber cement siding is a greener alternative to vinyl siding. Fiber cement products do not require frequent repainting as it holds paint well. Also, they do not dent unlike steel siding. Fiber cement products stand stronger in moisture and leaks than gypsum boards. These products possess excellent moisture-absorbing and drying properties, making them resistant to weather changes.

    Based on the type, why autoclaved segment held the largest revenue share?

    Based on type, autoclaved segment held the largest revenue share owing to the its durability and resistance to water, fire, and pests.

    Based on the application, which segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period?

    Based on the application, roofing segment is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR over the forecast period. Fiber cement roofing sheets and tiles are popular for their durability, resistance to weathering, and low maintenance requirements. They are also available in a variety of colors and styles to suit multiple architectural requirements and design preferences.

    What are the opportunities for fiber cement in the global market?

    According to the World Bank, across the world, a large proportion of the population lives in cities. In 2011, 52.0% lived in urban areas.
