A grinding aid is a specialty chemical agent used to make it easier to grind and mix cement. It has been traditionally used to improve the efficiency of the cement molturation process, one of the most energy consuming processes in cement production (60 - 70% of the total electricity consumed in a cement plant). Specifically, grinding aids prevent cement particles from re-agglomeration, or re-adhering, during and after the grinding process. Grinding aids make it possible to streamline the cement-making process by increasing process efficiency and material fluidity. These benefits of cement grinding aid use also contribute to lower energy costs on the part of industrial mills. Cement Grinding Aid production, which measures output worldwide, was expected to reach 3,233 thousand tons in 2016 with an increase of 2.77% from its year-earlier level. The global cement grinding aid market size is estimated to grow from USD 2,468.43 million in 2011 to USD 2,737.77 million by 2016, at an estimated CAGR of 2.09% between 2011 and 2016. With regards to this, key players of cement grinding aid industry are expected to find potential opportunities in this market.
