Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

The Cement Manufacturing industry makes various types of cement, the majority of which is supplied to the commercial and residential construction sectors. As a result, commercial and residential building activity heavily influences industry demand. Over the five years through 2017-18, commercial and residential building activity has grown, resulting in higher industry revenue, particularly in the first half of the period. Towards the end of the period, revenue growth is expected to have been dampened as a result of falling business confidence due to the EU referendum. Over the five years through 2017-18 industry revenue is forecast to increase at a compound annual rate of 2.4% to reach £952.5 million. This includes an estimated rise of 0.3% in 2017-18... purchase to read more

Industry Report - Industry SWOT Analysis Chapter

The Cement Manufacturing industry is in the mature stage of its life cycle. Industry value added is expected to rise at a compound annual rate of 3.7% over the 10 years through 2022-23, while UK GDP is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 2% over the same period. Although this growth rate is often more indicative of a growing industry, the industry started from a low base, as IVA had been consistently falling since the financial crisis up until the start of the period.

Demand for cement products comes primarily from downstream building and construction markets. Growth in industry demand closely tracks the growth of the economy, indicating that the market has become saturated.
