Cement is a basic ingredient used in the construction industry. It is used in wide range of applications in construction. Cement used as a binder in the preparation of mortar, concrete, non-specialty grouts and stucco, etc.

There are two types of cement available depending on their nature like hydraulic cement and non hydraulic cement. Non-hydraulic cement cannot bind or set the material in wet conditions or underwater, rather it easily gets affected by atmospheric changes or it gets reacts with carbon dioxide in air, therefore it is not used in construction. However hydraulic cement is offers strong binding of the construction material and it is mainly used in construction. Limestone, clay, and sand are the key raw materials used in the manufacturing of cement. These raw materials are available in abundance in Saudi Arabia. Due to wide availability of raw materials in the region cement is one of the lowest prices commodity used in construction activity in Saudi Arabia.

Applications of cement involve different types of constructions including commercial construction, industrial construction, residential construction, infrastructure development. Infrastructure development accounted for the largest market share of the cement market, both in terms of volume and revenue in 2014. In terms of volume, the segment accounted for around 50% share of the cement market in Saudi Arabia. Residential construction was the third-largest application segment of cement market in the Saudi Arabia in 2014. Residential segment is expected to exhibit fastest growth rate during the forecast period.

Cement Industry for Residential Market

Wide availability of raw materials and strong growth in all aspects of construction activities such as commercials, industrial, residential and infrastructure is driving growth for the cement industry in the region. As compare to other countries the cost of cement is lowest in Saudi arabia, due to large supply of raw materials and availability of fuel. This is very useful factor for driving the cement market in Saudi Arabia.

Demand for cement in the mainly driven by the expanding construction industry in the Saudi Arabia which accounted for the largest share of market. The government of Saudi Arabia has started a number of infrastructure development projects across all regions including central, eastern, northern, southern, and western.
