The report provides market analysis, information and insights into the Chinese cement industry including:
China is the largest cement market in the world, producing and consuming more than half of the cement produced globally. The industry is hugely fragmented, with approximately 3,000 small, medium-sized and large enterprises. The top ten producers account for less than 25% of the market share, and consist of both global and domestic firms. The Chinese Government invested US$500 billion in infrastructure during its 11th five-year plan, and plans to invest US$1 trillion during the 12th five-year plan. The large-scale investment in various spheres of infrastructure, including roads, railways, bridges and ports, is expected to drive the demand for cement over the forecast period. The Chinese cement industry is expected to consolidate over the forecast period, with large domestic and foreign companies acquiring small and medium-sized firms. Stringent emissions standards are likely to lead to the closure or acquisition of smaller plants. The Chinese cement industry, being a highly energy-intensive industry, is focusing strongly on alternative sources of energy and sustainable practices. This has led to partnerships with global cement equipment manufacturing plants, leading to more innovation in energy-efficient and sustainable technology.
