Cement Industry

Jun 19th, 2007, in Business & Economy, by

Cement demand and investment.

The growth in demand for cement of late (8.1% to May 2007, or 12.83 million tons sold) is driven by the increased purchasing power of people living off-Java and will contribute to a shortfall in cement production by 2011.

The rise in commodity prices, like for agricultural produce, had increased the buying power of those living outside of Java, to the point where they were more willing and able to build or repair homes and other facilities, thus pushing up demand for cement, said Agus Tjahajana from the Industry Department on 13th June to an international cement industry conference in Jakarta. In Kalimantan and Sumatra cement demand had risen by 12%, he said.

Agus predicted that in both 2007 as a whole, and through to 2008, cement demand would grow by at least 8% a year. antara

While currently 30% of Indonesian cement production is exported Agus predicted that if demand continued to grow by 2011 production would not be sufficient to meet domestic demand.

To meet the shortfall in supply by 2011 Agus says further investment of $250-300 million is required, however if Chinese technology is employed the needed sum could fall to $100-150 million. He said: tempo

The government is offering tax breaks for cement industry investors.

Muhammad Nuh, the Communications and Information minister, said Indonesia offered a big market for potential investors, and was stable and democratic. antara

    Tsunami levelled one cement plant in aceh owned by Lafarge. They have written it down.
    Maybe good time for aceh people to look into reviving such plants, if there is ample raw materials available, instead of wasting their time on issues such as syariah law, and employing spies to nab sinners.

    Hello Navarro,

    Your target price is non-realistic. If someone agrees to supply you cement at this price, it’s obvious they are just playing around and losing your time. If you are really serious about buying cement from real supplier, then you need to review your target price.

    – Product name, Grade and Standard

    – Target price
    – Packaging
    – CIF to which port and country
    – SGS certificate, will this be on our cost or buyer will handle it separately
