This aids the growth of the infrastructure segment of the market studied. Additionally, the development of smart cities is expected to provide a major boost to the market studied.
  • The ability of white concrete to be cast in any shape makes it ideal for monuments, sculptures, and for the restoration of various archeological sites, across the world.
  • Its high compressive strength reduces the costs, by eliminating steam curing, and increases the production speed in prefabricated applications.
  • The chemical purity and uniformity of white cement are quite useful for application in many complex formulations of construction materials, such as insulation, water-tight coatings, anchorage, joint filers, mortars, and others.
  • China is currently the world’s biggest producer and consumer of white cement. Cementir Holding SpA is currently the world’s biggest white cement manufacturer.
