"Capturing new opportunities in the fastest growing continent amidst strong competition and regional capacities!"

 

 "There is a need for increased investments in the cement industry in Zambia in order for prices of cement to stabilize, says NCC. Industry insiders have said that the Zambian government was targeting at least 5 potential investors to fund and set up cement plants. The 3 plants currently in operation are not producing enough cement to meet increasing demand."  

29/10/13, www.worldcement.com

 

"Lafarge Zambia plc has commissioned a US$5m 600,000t/yr aggregate plant with the Zambian Government that is expected to create 70 new direct jobs."

6/12/13, www.globalcement.com

 

"Nigeria has overtaken South Africa as the biggest cement manufacturer in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), as a result of growing demand and favourable government regulations in Africa’s second largest economy, according to a Renaissance Capital research."

27/11/13, www.ventures-africa.com

 

New hotels are springing up across Africa, despite the trials of bureaucratic delay and poor infrastructure, to meet the demand of an increasing number of tourists and business travelers as well as growing middle class. According to IMF, sub sahara Africa is set to gain 6.2% growth this year. Africa’s rise has prompted cement consumption to grow at a fast pace, driven by rapid urbanization & industrialization, increasing housing needs and infrastructure expansion,  improving political and economic stability among others.  

 

Cement expansions and new plants are being set up throughout Africa and cement acquisitions on the increase in recent years. How will this impact the cement market in the region? Are there still rooms for cheaper imports from Asia?  And what are the strategy cement players are adopting to remain competitive, with rising cost of production in Africa?

Nigeria is now the largest cement producer in SSA, owing to added capacity by key players – Lafarge, Dangote

Posted on : 24 Jan, 2014

 

Nigeria has taken the number 1 spot for being the biggest cement manufacturer in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) and the third largest in the Middle East region by beating South Africa, stated Renaissance Capital's 2013 research report. Nigeria now only lags behind Egypt and Saudi Arabia in the region. The country's cement production reached 28 million tons per annum (tpa) which is more than South Africa's production of 18.3 million tpa.


Nigeria's supremacy is owed to the increase in production capacity by many of the major cement giants in the country - Dangote Cement, Lafarge WAPCO, Ashaka and the Cement Company of Northern Nigeria (CCNN).


A few months ago, Lafarge West Africa's plans for a new cement plant took shape when it signed an MoU with the Engu State Commissioner for Commerce and Industry, Nigeria. The new factory is expected to begin operations in 2014. There was a delay in getting the final approval for the plant because of license expiry, which has been renewed. Nigeria's Ministry is keen at bringing in more local and global investors to the project.


Earlier this year, UNICEM also announced plans to establish its second cement line project in Nigeria worth U.S.$ 500 million. The company wants to capture the maturing cement industry in the country, therefore it is pushing its initial investment to $3 billion.


Apart from Lafarge and UNICEM, Nigeria's Dangote Cement is also doing robust business in the country. It's half yearly result for 2013 revealed an almost 30% increase in sales year on year. Dangote estimates its domestic market share in Nigeria at about 62%.


The prospects of the cement industry seems bright as there are massive infrastructure plans in the pipeline in Nigeria. The Federal Government is working on the Infrastructure Action Plan and it is in continuous dialog with the African Development Bank and key drivers of the Nigerian Transformation Agenda to take it forward. The Infrastructure Action Plan will be implemented over a period of 10 years and needs an investment of US$ 350 billion. Apart from this, the National Planning Commission in Nigeria is formulating an Integrated Infrastructure Master Plan that will be implemented over a 30-year period requiring approximately US$ 2.9 trillion.


CMT's 6th Africa Cementrade Summit in Lusaka on 18-19 March, 2014 is well timed and placed to discuss the success stories of Dangote, Lafarge, UNICEM in Africa as well as explore the opportunities for growth in the region.

Unicem Establishes U.S.$500 Million Second Cement Line Project

Investments in the Cement Industry in Southern Africa, Zambia & Zimbabwe to reach $940 million by 2018

Posted on : 04 Dec, 2013

 

There is rapid infrastructure development in South Africa and its neighbouring countries, resulting in a huge demand for cement in the Southern African region. Indeed there are several new cement plants that have come up in the region, particularly in South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

 

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) plans to roll-out the Regional Infrastructure Development Master Plan (RIDMP) over the next 15 years. The master plan will depend on cement to meet its milestones. Moreover, large chunks of government funds are also dedicated to public infrastructure in the region including energy and power facilities as well as expansion of transportation network.

 

Owing to such rapid infrastructure developments in the region Frost & Sullivan recently predicted that the investments in the cement industry in South Africa, Zambia and Zimbabwe will amount to $940 million between 2013 and 2018.

 

In 2012, cement production in the region was estimated at 14.9 million tonnes and it is expected to reach 18.1 million tonnes in 2018.

The predictions from Frost & Sullivan have already been reflected in the recent joint venture between Portuguese group Galilei and German group HeidelbergCement that will build a cement plant in Angola. Named Cimentos Nacionais Angola (CNA) project - the preliminary work has already begun for the plant. Estimated to involve an investment of $370 million, the construction of the cement plant may start within this year. It will be designed to have an initial installed capacity of 2 million tonnes of cement annually.


To get more updates on the future of the cement industry in Africa, attend 6th Africa CemenTrade Summit on 18-19 March, 2014 in Lusaka, Zambia.
