Demand for cement in China will rise 5.1 percent annually through 2010, driven by moderating yet still healthy growth in construction spending. Portland cement will remain dominate while blended and specialty cements will grow faster. Ready-mix concrete will surpass construction contractors as the second largest market by 2015.
This study analyzes the 199 billion Chinese cement industry. It presents historical demand data for 1995, 2000 and 2005 and forecasts to 2010 and 2015 by cement product (e.g., portland, blended, specialty); by construction end use (residential building, nonresidential building, nonbuilding, new, maintenance and repair), by market (e.g., construction contractors, concrete producers, consumer, ready-mix); and by region.
The study also considers market environment factors, evaluates company market share and profiles 33 major players including Conch, Sunnsy, Huaxin, Yatai, Jidong, Lafarge, Heidelberg, and Holcim.
