India: Cement covers the sector overview, sector size, competitive landscape, and environmental scanning for India. It also covers the market trends and outlook, installed capacity, cement production, cement consumption, cement trade, cement prices and realization and industry forecast, plus the profile, comparative matrix and SWOT analysis of the industry leading players: Ambuja Cements Limited, UltraTech Cement Limited and India Cements Limited.During the last five years, the Indian cement industry has shown resilience even amidst the global financial crisis. It is one of the eight core industries of the Indian economy. As of 2012, India was the second largest producer of cement in the world behind China. There has been a surge in capacity, consumption as well as production of cement during the last five years. However, per capita cement consumption in India is still amongst the lowest in the world. The vast potential that exists in the industry has attracted investors from all round the world. Three of the top four cement producers of the world have an established presence in India.
India’s cement industry witnessed growth even amidst a grim economic situation in the country in FY13. The demand supply gap that existed in the sector has allowed the cement companies to stay profitable. Housing and government spending on infrastructure were the major drivers of growth for the industry. Although the installed capacity has increased in the past few years, the cement companies of India were not able to utilize it to full extent. The industrial slowdown and consequent moderation in demand for cement resulted in a lower capacity utilization for the industry in the last four years. Furthermore, the rising cost of production brought the operating margins of Indian cement companies under pressure at the end of FY13.
However, the long term outlook for Indian cement industry is positive owing to a steady growth in housing and infrastructure development. Domestic consumption is expected to drive growth and expansion in the industry.
