    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. A combination of excess productive capacity in the local industry, alongside the ongoing threat of low-cost imports, ensures that industry competition remains intense.

    Industry revenue is projected to decline by 10.3% in 2016-17, to total $2.6 billion. This decline is largely due to the sharp drop of investment in residential building and several key infrastructure markets. Domestic demand for cement and lime products is expected to reach $2.8 billion in 2016-17, with imports projected at $228.4 million (8.2% of domestic demand) and export earnings at just $3.8 million...

    Industry Report - Industry Products Chapter

    The industry's principal product is Portland cement, which is generally referred to simply as cement. Portland cement is a mineral binding agent that is produced in three stages: the blending of raw materials, the production of clinker through heating the raw material slurry and the grinding and heating of the clinker into cement, with gypsum added during the process. Cement can be mixed with aggregate and water to produce concrete slurry or moulded to produce concrete products such as pipes, box culverts, blocks, bricks, roof tiles, floor and wall tiles.
