7th Africa Cementrade Summit

Cement trade technology

“Transformation in Africa’s cement market & spotlight on high growth region!”

Many countries in Africa are investing in cement production with the aim to achieve self-sufficiency. Cement & grinding plants are under construction from DR Congo, South Africa, Ghana, Algeria, Mozambique to Kenya, Ethiopia and many more! How will it change the dynamic in the region and trade flow when all the announced projects come on-stream?

African companies are expanding beyond their homeland to boost their earnings. Cement leaders like Dangote Cement, PPC, CIMAF, ARM Cement & etc have several projects operating or under-construction across Africa. What are their plans in the next 5 years and where are the hot spots to focus on? Can the producers compete with cheaper imports from Asia?

Energy cost remains a challenge in Africa and what are the options available for cement producers and new investors? Are consistent & affordable power supply a reality in the very near future?
