Cement demand to outpace supply growth

Industry experts scheduled to converge for 14th Cement EXPO, India’s biggest cement event on Dec 14-15 in Delhi

The ongoing consolidation within the cement sector is poised to yield positive outcomes for the industry. The Ambuja-Sanghi deal itself was concluded at an adjusted enterprise value to tonne (EV/T) ratio of $70/tonne.

Projections suggest that the cement industry’s capacity will experience an incremental increase at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 4.2 percent. In contrast, the demand for cement is expected to outpace this supply growth, with a projected CAGR of 8.2 percent. “Given the firmness in real estate trends coupled with the infrastructure outlay and execution speed, demand for cement will outpace the supply growth,” says Pratap Padode, Founder & President, FIRST Construction Council. FIRST Construction Council, in partnership with the 37-year-old Indian Cement Review, India’s only cement magazine, is set to orchestrate the highly anticipated 14th Cement EXPO. This landmark event is slated to transpire on December 14-15, 2023, at the prestigious Manekshaw Centre in Delhi.
