The growth of cement industry is associated with growth in other infrastructure activities such as real estate, roads, highways, power plants, hydel projects etc. Due to economic slowdown, the growth rate of cement industry declined to almost 8% in FY09 as compared to double digit growth recorded in previous years. The construction activity is picking up in various segments like housing, industrial and other infrastructure projects. The pricing pressure however still remains for the cement industry. Cement prices have continued to fall mainly due to huge capacity addition. Input costs of the cement industry have risen much higher due to rise in prices of coal and petcoke. Exports have been hit after the recent financial crash in Dubai which has affected construction activity there. Demand however is expected to go up due to thrust on infrastructure activities and real estate sector which will help cement industry to sustain higher growth rates in future.
