The Global Cement and Concrete Market Outlook to 2028£1,995.00
The global construction industry is showing substantial growth which has been driving demand for cement and concrete. One of the key drivers behind the growth is urbanisation particularly in emerging markets. Meanwhile, rising per capita income is also underpinning demand for cement and concrete in the residential construction sector.
On the other hand, to provide better public services in transport, healthcare, energy etc, government spending is also on the rise, boosting demand for cement and concrete in the infrastructure sector. We assess that major demand for cement and concrete is attributed to the infrastructure sector which is on the rise across the globe.
However, limited space in major cities and urban areas is driving the trend towards high rise buildings, which is also embraced by even in the developing markets. High rise buildings tend to become less concrete intensive, which will be a downside risk for cement and concrete going forward. In developed markets, we ascertain that there is a negative correlation between high rise buildings and cement and concrete demand. Most of these high rise buildings will increase the usage of more expensive materials such as glass in facades and steel beams in structures. However, in developing markets, multiple storey buildings will continue to use traditional materials such as cement, marble etc. However, there is a growing trend for skyscrapers in some parts of developing Asia and Central and South America. Indeed the building core will be cement and concrete intensive, though most of the outer and parts are likely to use alternative materials for various reasons such as aesthetics and lightweight.
Moreover, the environmental costs and labour shortages, particularly in developed markets, will remain a serious issue in the industry. Brexit, NAFTA renegotiations and the US strict policy on immigration will also play a key role in impacting demand and supply of cement and concrete in these markets. On the other hand OBOR, Saudi Vision 2030 and $1 trillion US infrastructure plan would be some of the key mega projects underpinning demand for cement and concrete. Commodity Inside expects that a substantial amount of new cement supply will be added in emerging and developing markets to satisfy the growing demand.
Global Advanced Construction Glazing Glass Market out to 2028£1,695.00
The advanced glass is changing the face of construction. Today we have a variety of advanced glass used for glazing which are performing various functions in addition to providing a nice look to the building. The market has been grown very fast recently and now account for a considerable share in the total construction glass. Indeed developed markets such as North America and Europe are leading players, though demand pattern in emerging markets is also changing. Commodity Inside anticipates that advanced glazing glass market in the construction industry is set to reach 32 million tonnes by 2028.
Energy efficient glazing glass is playing a pivotal role in keeping the energy consumption low and resulting less pollution in the environment. It accounts for the largest share in the advanced glazing glass market. The increasing regulations for a sustainable environment and green buildings are playing a significant role in driving demand for energy efficient glass.
The increasing population and urbanisation, as well as the trend of high rise buildings, are expected to drive demand for advanced glazing glass market. Most of the growth is expected to generate from commercial buildings followed by residential construction. We are not expecting any significant demand growth for advanced glazing glass in the infrastructure sector, though some types of advanced glazing glass will flourish more in the infrastructure markets due to their special attributes.
The high price margin over the standard glass prices will remain a serious drawback which will restrain demand. We are not expecting any significant squeeze in margins. The impact of high price will be more severe in the developing markets where both regulations and building architecture is not supportive of advanced glass in construction.
Global Construction Glass Market Outlook to 2028£1,695.00
The construction glass market has been showing some substantial demand growth on the back of increased use of glass in developing and emerging markets. Urbanisation is one of the major drivers behind the growth, particularly with increasing number of high rise buildings in large densely populated cities. Lack of space and rising land prices are pushing property developers towards high rise building. In matured markets, availability of skilled labours as well as supplies of prefabricated glass windows and facade claddings are some key supportive factors for the high usage of glass in the construction industry. However, developing markets are lagging behind in the race due to the inadequacy of such facilities.
The non-residential sector is expected to continue account for the largest market share in the construction glass market. Hotels and shopping centres will be some of the major subsectors which will keep the demand elevated. In most developing markets, where alternative materials were previously used for durability and lower maintenance costs, have now been switching towards glass panels for both aesthetics as well as prestige reasons.
However, one of the key aspects which require attention across commercial, residential and infrastructure construction is the environmental and energy-saving attributes. Intensive marketing will be required to influence the governments in policy making, strong coordination with designers and structural engineers etc. Awareness, marketing, and a good technical team are also very important for furthering construction glass demand.
Rising costs and availability of cheap and durable alternative materials continue to remain a significant downside risk to the growing demand, particularly in the residential sector. Commodity Inside also believes that the tightening of monetary policy has a strong correlation with residential construction. The US Federal Reserve is expected to switch towards tighter monetary policy this year while other central banks including People's Bank of China are expected to keep the policy relatively tight. These measures would hamper construction glass demand in various markets in the short term.

The Global Steel Rail Market Outlook to 2027£2,678.00
Infrastructure plays a vital role in the economic development of a country. Most matured economies allocate a significant portion of their annual budget for refurbishing and upgrading infrastructure. Similarly, developing countries are also racing for building up their infrastructure by funding through fiscal coffers and lending. Commodity Inside believes that due to growing population and urbanisation there is significant pressure on infrastructure and multi-billion infrastructure projects have been announced across the world. The US government plans to spend around $1 trillion on infrastructure over the next ten years.
Railways is a vital component of the infrastructure industry and currently going through significant overhauls across the world. Over the past few years, we saw some rail producers complaining about the limited growth and cost pressures and started to offload their rail units. Longs steel producers usually prefer to produce sections and other construction products due to better demand fundamentals. Most of the recently added rail capacity was in China due to domestic demand and non-market forces. Iran also entered the rail market with Esfahan Steel added 400,000 tonnes/year rail capacity to its portfolio in 2016.
Indeed, limited demand growth has been one of the culprits deterring new entrants or new capacity additions. Demand and supply also remained range-bound over the past few years. However, we have recently identified some growth pockets across the world which are going to underpin demand over the next decade. High-speed rail, electrification and new rails projects would be some of the fundamental drivers increasing demand for rails.
The Chinese initiative to improve connectivity through One Belt One Road (OBOR) would have a phenomenal impact on the rail industry. A large number of rail projects are planned under the OBOR initiative across Asia and Africa. The aim is to connect China with major trading regions including Europe. The train transport has already started between China and Europe where first Chinese freight train arrived in the UK in January 2017 while the first ever direct train from London to China full of goods completed its journey in April 2017. More recently, in November 2017, a train with 41 containers reached Xi'an Port in China from Finland's Kouvola. It was the first Central European train between China and the Nordic countries. The cargo included electromechanical equipment and various commodities. Dozens of European cities have now direct rail links with China.
