In addition, a detailed analysis of the 6 top cement-producing countries in East Africa is presented. The country analyses include Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda, and Tanzania. The analysis concludes by identifying and summarising the key trends and opportunities within East Africa’s cement industry between 2013 and 2018.

Key Findings
-This research service discusses the opportunities of the East African cement industry by providing a detailed analysis of the market from 2013 to 2018.
-In 2013, cement consumption was estimated at million tonnes and is expected to reach million tonnes in 2018, showing a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of %.
-East Africa’s average consumption is low and the process of catching up with international averages will drive future growth. The Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Kenya, and Burundi are expected to display the most rapid consumption growth, with CAGRs of %, %, and %, respectively, from 2013 to 2018.
-Certain high-growth markets—such as those in the DRC, Rwanda, and Burundi—which are characterised by low cement consumption per capita, are expected to continue to grow and attract imports from cement manufacturers based throughout East Africa.
-Most countries from this group have or have had political instability, which has curtailed the development of the infrastructure and construction sectors.
-Cement demand in this region is anticipated to remain strong in the medium term, supported by the resurgence in infrastructure and housing sectors, which are boosting investments in new cement production lines, the retrofitting of old cement plants, and the expansion of existing cement production capacity.
-Key drivers for cement demand in East Africa are infrastructure development, urbanisation, high regional gross domestic product (GDP) growth rates, and high population growth.
-The implementation of sustainable cost optimisation strategies focusing on alternate fuels, low-cost technology, and value-adding models are expected to reinforce the local producers’ presence and competitive positioning in the East African cement industry.
-Modernisation at the plants, improvement of plant processes, and absorption of the best practices in mining and manufacturing—in the pursuit of cost efficiency—is required if East African cement producers are to compare favourably to leading global cement producers in terms of profitability.
