Cement is the basic building material in any construction activity. Cement as a binding material has replaced lime and clay which have been in use since early civilisation.

The cost of cement is nearly 20% of the total cost of construction. The cost of cement is thus one of the major expenditures in construction. Hence one needs to know the latest cement price list rates prevailing in the market.

Domestic Cement Consumption is around 235 KG Per Capita.

Total Cement Consumption is 380 Million Metric Tonns

Domestic Cement Consumption in India is around 235 KG Per Capita Against a Global Average of 520 KG Per Capita. Total cement consumption in India is 380 million metric tons and is expected to grow to 420 Million Metric tons by 2027.

Having awareness about the cost of cement is important to minimise the cost of construction. Construction nowadays can not be imagined without cement. Thus in this post, we will explain in detail about types of cement and the cost of all cement price per bag.

## Types of Cement Used In Construction

Cement is a binding material when mixed with water forms a homogeneous mixture. There are many types of cement that have unique features and properties. Each cement is used for its advantage over the other.

The most commonly used cement in construction is Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC). OPC has three different grades that is OPC 33 grade, OPC 43 grade and OPC 53 grade.

The most common types of cement used in construction are listed below:

- Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC)
- OPC 33 Grade
- OPC 43 Grade
- OPC 53 Grade

- Portland Pozzolana Cement (PPC)
- Rapid Hardening Cement (RHC)

Mainly used cement in construction is OPC 53 grade cement but nowadays PPC cement are also used. OPC 33 grade cement is rarely used in construction while OPC 43 grade cement is used for plain cement concreting and RCC work of minor importance. Low-grade cement is also used for plastering walls, tilling and flooring work, stone masonry, and pathways, etc.

Ordinary portland cement is preferred for its early strength development in comparison with PPC cement. PPC cement exhibits higher compressive strength of concrete in comparison with OPC cement but initially, it is lower than OPC.

### Advantage of OPC over PPC

- Initial strength development is quicker in comparison with PPC cements.
- Formwork and support can be released earlier as compared to PPC cement concrete.
- Curing period of OPC cement concrete is comparatively lower than PPC.
- OPC comes in 3 grade of cement. OPC 53 Grade cement has high compressive strength.

### Advantage of PPC over OPC

- The cost of PPC is lower than OPC cement.
- The durability of concrete structures made with PPC cement is higher than OPC cement concrete structures.
- PPC has higher workability of concrete in comparison with OPC cement.
- PPC is ideally suited for mass concrete structures.
- PPC has a higher resistance to the attack of chemicals.
- When compared with OPC, PPC is less permeable and more water resistant.

### Application of OPC and PPC

OPC cement is used in multistoried buildings, bridges, dams, and roads. OPC is used in places where a fast setting of concrete is desired like in flyovers and bridges where a slight delay can cause huge problems.

PPC cement is resistant to corrosion and also environmentally friendly. PPC cement is corrosion-resistant. Portland Pozzolana Cement is used in hydraulic structure, marine structures, and plastering. PPC is suitable for mass concreting projects like dams and sewage pipes.

### Price Range For Cement Types

As mentioned above there are many types of cement available in the market. Each cement is suitable for a certain applications and its prices also vary. The price of OPC and PPC grade cement vary from place to place and also other factors. Thus prices of cement is continuously changing, price range for cement of different grades are mentioned below.

Grade of Cement | Price Range of Cement |
---|---|

OPC 33 Grade Cement | Rs. 300 – 390 per bag |

OPC 43 Grade Cement | Rs. 350 – 410 per bag |
