India Cement Market Dynamics:

Rising infrastructure post-pandemic:

The India Cement business, which accounts for about 7% of the installed capacity, is the world's second-largest cement industry, second only to China. It is also the fourth-largest revenue contributor to the exchequer and the second-largest revenue contributor to the Indian Railways, contributing nearly US $7.14 billion (INR 50,000 crore) per annum to the government via taxes and levies, and about US $1.29 billion (INR 9,000 crore) per annum to the Indian Railways through freight. Indian's infrastructure and construction sectors have a lot of room for growth, and the cement industry is likely to profit greatly from it. Some recent initiatives, such as the development of 98 smart cities, are expected to provide the sector with a significant boost. Several foreign players, including Lafarge-Holcim, Heidelberg Cement, and Vicat, have recently invested in the country thanks to favorable government policies. The ready availability of raw resources for creating cement, such as limestone and coal, is a crucial aspect that promotes the growth of the India Cement industry.

The following are some of the government's recent initiatives: • In July 2021, For the cement sector, the government established a council of 25 members (including UltraTech Cement MD Mr. K C Jhanwar and Dalmia Bharat Group CMD Mr. Puneet Dalmia) to decrease waste, achieve maximum production, improve quality, lower costs, and encourage product standardization. • The government allocated an allocation of Rs. 1,18,101 crore (US $16.22 billion) for the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways in the Union Budget 2021-22, which is expected to drive cement consumption.

Rising investments in the sector:

Cement and gypsum products drew US $5.87 billion in Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) between April 2000 and March 2021, according to data supplied by the Department for Promotion of Industry and Internal Trade (DPIIT). Working remotely is likely to become more popular in 2021, and demand for cheap residences with ticket sizes of less than Rs. 40-50 lakh is expected to surge in Tier 2 and 3 cities, increasing cement demand.

The following are some of the recent key investments in the India Cement industry:

• In August 2021, Ambuja Cement has announced an Rs. 310 crore (US $41.82 million) investment in its Ropar Unit, Punjab, to expand its manufacturing capacity to meet rising demand from the manufacturing sector for house construction and public infrastructure development. By June 2023, the expansion activities should be completed. • In February 2021, Shree Cement partnered with IBM to run its database and critical business applications on IBM POWER9-based IBM Power Systems utilizing AIX and Red Hat. Shree Cement will be able to improve productivity and supply chain efficiencies across its manufacturing unit as a result of the deployment.

Emerging opportunities:

For cement businesses, the eastern states of Indian are likely to represent newer and undeveloped markets that could contribute to their bottom line in the future. In the next ten years, Indian may overtake China as the world's leading supplier of clinker and grey cement to the Middle East, Africa, and other developing countries. Cement facilities near ports, such as those in Gujarat and Visakhapatnam, are expected to have a competitive edge for export and will be well-equipped logistically to compete with cement mills in the interior of the country. The government also plans to increase railway capacity as well as handling and storage facilities to make cement transportation easier and less expensive. These steps would result in more construction activity, which would raise cement consumption. For example, the Union Budget gave Rs. 13,750 crore (US $1.88 billion) to the Urban Rejuvenation Mission: AMRUT and Smart Cities Mission and Rs. 12,294 crore (US $1.68 billion) to the Swachh Bharat Mission, respectively, and Rs. 27,500 crore (US$ 3.77 billion) to the Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana.
