Fiber Cement is a composite building material of cement and sand reinforced by cellulose fibers which facilitate a number of traits including resistance to cracking, lighter weight and a degree of flexibility. Fiber cement products are generally used for cladding and roofing purpose. The composition and production parameters of these products play a major role in its cost, performance and strength. Fiber cement is reinforced with fibers, which in its fresh plastic state, is workable into virtually any shape and form, thereby providing extended flexibility to the design. The excellent performance of fiber cement products in severe weather conditions, high toughness at minimal thickness, inflammability, biological resistance, frost resistance and favourable vapour permeability have paved the way for extended future use.
The report comprehends the analysis of fiber cement market with respect to segments including fiber type, production process, product type and application. The types of fibers used for reinforcement includes polypropylene, Poly-Vinyl Alcohol (PVA), glass roving's, mineral fiber, carbon, Kevlar, steel, asbestos, lignocellulose and others. The product spectrum of fiber cement includes flat sheets, corrugated sheets, laminated sheets, shingle slates, planks and other niche types. These products are being used in agriculture, industries, residential, non-residential, commercial and other applications. PVA is the most widely used and fastest growing raw material employed for fiber cement products accounting to a prominent market share of 50% and it is estimated to grow multifold in the future.
The market has been segmented in to four regions North America, Europe, Asia-pacific and rest of the world. The sudden decline in the usage of asbestos due to environmental concerns gave fiber cement products a clean sweep into the construction applications. These products are being developed and manufactured at an increasing rate so as to meet the future demands and to achieve deeper penetration in construction industry at global level.

The research methodology adopted for this report is initiated by collection of cement consumption of various countries among the four regions. The next step involved the allocation of usage of fiber cement with respect to construction which produced the market volumes. The estimation and forecast of fiber cement market was done by acquisition of various revenue parameters of the key players via secondary research. Finally the bottom up approach was implemented to estimate the overall market size. Information from various associations including North American Fiber Cement Association Members, EFFCM - European Federation of Fiber-Cement Manufacturers, American Fiber Cement, Portland Cement Association and many others were collated, analyzed and validated by the KOLs via primaries to finalize the report.
