Cement industry in India

India is the second largest cement producer worldwide with over 7% of the global installed capacity.

Advantage India

Robust
Demand

* As per ICRA, in FY22, the cement production in India is expected to increase by ~12% YoY, driven by rural housing demand and government’s strong focus on infrastructure development.

* As per Crisil Ratings, the Indian cement industry is likely to add ~80 million tonnes (MT) capacity by FY24, the highest since the last 10 years, driven by increasing spending on housing and infrastructure activities.

Attractive
Opportunities

* In October 2021, Prime Minister, Mr. Narendra Modi, launched the ‘PM Gati Shakti - National Master Plan (NMP)’ for multimodal connectivity. Gati Shakti will bring synergy to create a world-class, seamless multimodal transport network in India. This will boost the demand for cement in the future.

Long-term
Potential

* Oligopoly market, where large players have partial pricing control.

* Low threat from substitutes.

* Indian cement companies are amongst the world greenest cement manufacturers.

* With high allocation under the Union Budget 2022-23 for infrastructure, affordable housing schemes and road projects to fuel the economy, the domestic cement industry is poised for a volume surge.

Increasing
Investments

* FDI inflows related to the manufacturing of cement and gypsum products, reached US$ 5.24 billion between April 2000-September 2021.

* In 2021, as remote work is being adopted at a fast pace amid the pandemic, the demand for affordable houses, with a ticket size of <Rs. 40-50 lakh (US$ 53,694- 67,118), is expected to rise in Tier 2 and 3 cities, leading to an increase in demand for cement.
