Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Cement and Lime Manufacturing industry produces a range of products that are integral inputs in the construction, mineral processing, manufacturing and agricultural sectors.

Industry Report - Industry Key Buyers Chapter

The industry has a medium market concentration and exhibits strong vertical integration with the downstream concrete manufacturing industries. Together, the four leading manufacturers in the industry account for an estimated 63.2% of industry revenue in 2016-17, with about 30.5% of these sales coming from Adelaide Brighton. The commissioning of the Wagners Group cement-grinding operations in Brisbane in early 2009 partly diluted the industry’s concentration, although this has been partly offset the move by HeidelbergCement and LafargeHolcim to take a 50:50 joint venture position in Cement Australia.
