Corporate Social Responsibility Conclusion

Indian Economy
India is growing at about 8+% and Government targets a GDP growth of 9+%. High GDP growth would translate into double-digit cement demand growth annually. Favourable Demographics - India will contribute significantly to the world incremental Working Age Population between 2010 to 2020, leading to higher disposable income. Empowered Rural India - Rural masses, expanding Consumer class. The rural Indian economy is showing impressive growth in consumption, with a number of factors supporting this growth. These factors include increasing incomes due to good monsoons and Government initiatives and schemes like, (National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme) employment opportunities in infrastructure and industry projects across the country and; emphasis on local employability. Rising Saving Rate - Bulk of Indias savings come from households rather than corporate, makes it a stable source of funds for Infrastructure Creation. A Stable Government at the Centre with Strong focus on growth and infrastructure development - Infrastructure Investment will be doubled in 12th Plan @ US$ 1 trillion (9.5% of GDP). India at the cusp of take-off into an exponential growth phase with GDP per capita crossing the ~$1000 threshold

Cement Growth Drivers


Low per capita consumption at 176 kg reflects potential for future growth. Rising housing affordability due to Increasing income level. Individual Housing Builders (IHB) segment - the major contributor of demand. As per 11th Five Year Plan (2008-12), 74 Million housing units required. Agricultural growth to boost rural demand. Infrastructure Investment for 11th plan is pegged at US$500 bn (7.6% of projected GDP growth), while for the 12th plan it projected to be US$1 trillion (9.5% of GDP). On the back of the above factors cement demand is expected to grow double digits for the next five years.
Housing & Infrastructure Development are the major growth drivers for Cement Demand

Cement Sector Outlook


India second largest cement market in the World. Low per capita consumption at 176 kg reflects potential for future growth. Healthy CAGR of 10% over the last 5 years (2005-2010) and a CAGR of 8% over the last 20 yrs (1990-2010) Domestic cement consumption grew by 10% in CY09 and continued in the same pace also in CY 10* despite a prolonged monsoon season. Cement demand expected to grow in double-digit in the next five years on the back of housing and infrastructure development. The top 5 groups are having a market share of 53%, the rest of the market is quite fragmented. Prices expected to remain under pressure in the short-term due to oversupply situation, but in the long-term expected to remain stable. Cost pressure would continue, on account of surging energy prices and inflationary pressures. Good cement demand, coupled with a potential over supply and increasing cost pressures, makes the industry outlook more challenging

Increased capacity expansion in 2010-2011, utilization rate is expected to remain low in the near term, would gradually improve with the growth of the industry. Pressures are likely to be felt across all regions, the south and west could remain weaker as compared to the other regions.
2010 onwards demand is estimated to grow by 10%

Corporate Social Responsibility Conclusion

26

Increasing Cost Pressures


Major Portion of Cost linked to Energy Prices Increasing Cost of Imported Coal : The Cost of Imported Coal has increased over 40% y-o-y basis. The lack of logistics infrastructure at port, limits economical movement of imported coals to hinterland. Domestic Linkage Coal materialization is declining including the quality of coal, increasing the cost of purchasing coal through open market purchases. Distribution Cost a major cost for the Industry. Diesel prices have increased substantially in the past eight years and is now linked to the international crude prices. Lack of Logistics Infrastructure in form of Wagon / Rakes Availability , increase the cost of distribution. Inflationary pressure on Support Process Costs.

Rising Costs a Concern
