Based on property, white cement is similar to gray cement. However, it exhibits a high degree of whiteness. Substantial modification is carried out during the manufacturing process. During the manufacture of white cement, metal oxides are added. White cement exhibits excellent esthetic, decorative, and hydraulic binding properties. It is used in various industries due to its high compressive strength.

The white cement market can be segmented based on type, application, end-user, and region. In terms of type, the white cement market may be divided into white masonry cement, white portland cement, and others. White masonry cement is mixed with masonry grade sand to produce mortar for usage in brick, block, and stone masonry construction. Portland cement is manufactured using chalk and clay. It hardens quickly when in contact with water. Other types of white cement are calcium aluminate cement and calcium sulfoaluminate cement. White cement is used in building and construction activities. It is combined with organic pigments that are bright colored concrete and mortar. It is ideal for usage in monuments, sculptures, and restoration of archeological sites. Based on end user, the white cement market can be segregated into residential, industrial, and commercial. White cement is widely used for construction purposes in the residential industry. It is also employed in the development of infrastructure.
