Demand for cement in China will rise six percent annually through 2012, driven by rising construction spending. Nonresidential building construction will stay the largest end use, while nonbuilding construction grows the fastest. Contractors will remain the largest market while ready-mix concrete grows most rapidly.
This study analyzes the 317 billion yuan Chinese cement industry. It presents historical demand data for the years (1997, 2002 and 2007) and forecasts for 2012 and 2017 by product (e.g., blended cement, Portland cement), end use (e.g., residential building construction, nonresidential building construction, nonbuilding construction), market (e.g., construction contractors, concrete products) and Chinese geographic region.
The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share and profiles 32 industry participants, including Anhui Conch, China Shanshui (Hong Kong) and China National Building Material.
