India is the second largest cement producer in the world next only to china. Despite the fact that the Indian economy continues to reel under the recessionary environments the Domestic cement industry emerged as an exception and registered a growth rate of 11 % in Production over the previous year. There are more than 130 large plants owned by 52 companies In. 2005-2006 the total installed capacity for cement manufacture stood 160.24 million tones. The capacity utilization of 88 %, the highest ever as compared to 83 % in the previous year. The industry recorded a production of 141.81 million tones. The share of blended cement has been increasing to 61 % from 56 %. As companies shifting their emphasis from OPC to blended cement. The cement industry on the whole, recorded a CARG of 10 % over the last two decades.

However export of clinker went down to 3.18 million tones against 5.99 million tones.

OPPORTUNITES & THREATS : The cement industry in India is poised to grow satisfactorily as demand is anticipated due to in going “BHARAT NIRMAN" plan I other ambitious targets projected by Government; planning for timely completion of road project and focus on agriculture. The industry continues to be plagued by very high taxes both at the Central and state level, this is a major worry for the cement industry.


Outlook : The long term outlook for the cement industry is encouraging. The demand for cement from the government and private sector would continue to increase in coming year, because of substantial additional plan outlay provided by the central government in the infrastructure development and housing sector. The cement production has been increasing in the recent years with increased emphasis on production of blended cement.

Risk & Concerns: The truck loading restrictions imposed by state governments is a matter of concern as it increases overall cost to the industry. High level of taxed and duties imposed by Central as well as State Government and higher prices of fuels and freight are major concerns of the Industry.

Cement industry is a core sector and forms the backbone of the infrastructure development of the country. Cement manufacturing began is India in 1911 the 1st plant had a capacity of 200 tones per day. The industry was delicensed and uncontrolled in 1989. The Investment cost per ton installed capacity in 2002 for a cement plants is Rs. 4500 /- per ton as compared to Rs. 600/- per ton in late 70's India is one the best quality cement manufacturer's of the world .
