The overall fly ash market is expected to grow from USD 6.59 in 2016 to USD 5.97 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 5.7% from 2016 to 2021. Fly ash is a byproduct formed when the coal is burned in thermal power plants. It is a fine powder containing aluminous and siliceous material that forms cement when water is added to it. Concrete made using fly ash is easy to pour, shows low permeability, and resists chemical reactions, hence increasing the service life of concrete. Fly ash is primarily used in the construction and infrastructure industries. The base year considered for the study is 2017, and the forecast has been provided for the period between 2016 and 2021.

Growth in the global construction industry drives the global fly ash market

The construction industry in the major consumer of fly ash. The construction industry in the Middle East countries such as Saudi Arabia, the UAE, and Qatar has been growing at the rate of 10% for a few years now. The construction of commercial and residential buildings in China has also witnessed tremendous growth. The Make in India program introduced by the Government of India in 2014 also promotes new construction projects in the country. The programs such as Smart Cities Mission and Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (AMRUT) have also led to an increased construction spending in India. The sub-prime crisis in the U.S. (2008) caused a recession in the construction industry. However, the industry has recovered and is growing at a moderate pace. The global construction industry contributes around one-tenth of the global GDP and is expected to reach about USD 8 trillion by 2030, as per Oxford Economics.

The overall fly ash market is expected to grow from USD 6.59 in 2016 to USD 5.97 billion by 2021 at a CAGR of 5.7%. The fly ash market has been growing owing to the growth in the construction industry, increasing focus on infrastructure and road paving, problems related to dumping fly ash, promotion of fly ash by governments of various countries, and increasing focus on the use of environment-friendly products.

The most common use of fly ash is as a partial replacement of Portland cement. Normally, replacement rates are between 20% to 30% but can be as high as 50%. Concrete made from fly ash has increased strength, durability, and load carrying capacity. It is less prone to chemical attacks and reduces the negative impact of harmful aggregates. It is easy to work with because of its spherical shape. The use of fly ash also reduces heat of hydration, shrinkage, and permeability. It is used in buildings, highways, tunnels, and bridges for stronger construction.

The fly ash market has been segmented, on the basis of type, into Type F and Type C. Among all fly ash, Type F is the most common fly ash. The growth in the consumption of cement and cementitious materials from the construction sectors across the globe has driven the demand for Class F fly ash.

The fly ash market in Asia Pacific is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is the fastest-growing market for fly ash. The growing population in this region is placing a strain on the existing infrastructure and leading to the need for additional developments in the rail networks, residential buildings, and roadways. There is a significant need to invest in additional infrastructure to reduce the gap in the existing and the required infrastructure in the Asia-Pacific region. Maximum economic growth and the utilization of facilities in the countries in this region is possible with the implementation of new infrastructure projects. Thus, the road infrastructure projects by the governments of the Asia-Pacific region countries will drive the global fly ash market.

Fly Ash Market

Fly ash applications in the construction industry drive the growth of fly ash market

PORTLAND CEMENT & CONCRETE

Fly ash is added to concrete to make it more durable and strong. Fly ash has low unit weight. On pound for pound basis, fly ash contributes 30% more volume of cementitious material per pound as compared to cement. Hence, it is a suitable material to partially replace cement in construction activities. Fly ash also reduces the amount of water needed to make a concrete mixture by around 5% to 10%. It also reduces the amount of sand needed in a concrete admixture.

Concrete made from fly ash is slightly lower in strength than normal cement concrete up to 30 days, around equal in strength in 30-40 days, and higher strength than normal cement in around a year’s time. Fly ash concrete has lesser permeability and efflorescence than normal concrete.

BRICKS & BLOCKS

Fly ash is ideal for manufacturing bricks, mosaic tiles, and hollow blocks. The use of clay bricks depletes topsoil and leads to degradation of land. The use of fly ash bricks can help avoid this. Adding 20%-40% fly ash in bricks decreases 20%-30% of energy consumed during manufacturing. Fly ash bricks set and harden in the presence of moisture and get stronger with age. They are also comparatively lighter and stronger than clay bricks. Cellular lightweight concrete blocks containing fly ash have a good strength-to-weight ratio and reduce dead load.

Fly ash bricks are made of fly ash, sand, lime, and gypsum. They have high compressive strength, high strength-to-weight ratio, zero efflorescence, and low water absorption. All these properties make them desirable for use in construction applications.

ROAD CONSTRUCTION

Fly ash is used in roads in pavement concrete, stabilized base courses, structural fills, and flowable fills. In pavement concrete, it is used in concrete admixtures to increase the performance of the concrete. When added to pavement concrete, it improves workability, strength, durability, and resistance to sulfate attack. It also reduces bleeding, heat of hydration, permeability, and shrinkage in the pavement.

Fly ash is added to lime and aggregate to create stabilized base courses, also called pozzolanic-stabilized mixtures (PSMs). These base courses have lower costs, increased energy efficiency, and provide a strong and durable mixture in comparison with other base courses.

AGRICULTURE

Fly ash can be used to improve the physical health of soil. It serves as a soil modifier and enhances the water retention capacity of soil, hence increasing its fertility. It also supports the water and nutrient absorption capability of plants, development of roots, soil binding, and protects the soil from diseases as well as detoxifies contaminated soil. The use of fly ash in the farming of cereals, oil seeds, pulses, sugarcane, and cotton increases yield by 10%-15%. The yield increases by 20%-25% in vegetables and by 30%-40% in root vegetables.

Critical questions the report answers:

  • Where will all these developments take the industry in the mid to long term?
  • What are the upcoming industry applications for fly ash?

Decreasing use of thermal power in the energy mix is a major factor restraining the growth of the market. The power sector has changed in the recent past with renewable energy sources such as wind, hydro, and solar energy constituting an increasing share of the energy mix. Renewable sources of energy have low variable costs associated with them as compared to thermal power generation. The focus of countries lately has been to produce electricity using cleaner energy. China, the biggest producer of thermal power, is witnessing a shift in its energy mix. With growing significance and increasing capacities of solar and wind energy in the country, the importance of thermal energy is expected to fall in the future. In India, the thermal power production is growing at a positive rate, but with the increasing use of alternate sources of energy in the country, the share of thermal power in the energy mix is expected to decrease in the future.

Key players in the market include Boral Limited (Australia), CEMEX S.A.B. de C.V. (Mexico), Lafarge North America Inc. (U.S.), Charah Inc. (U.S.), Separation Technologies LLC (U.S.), Aggregate Industries (U.K.), FlyAshDirect (U.S.), Salt River Materials Group (U.S.), and Ashtech (India) Pvt. Ltd. (India). These players have expanded their geographical presence through acquisitions, expansions, and agreements.
