According to a study from the Freedonia Group, global cement demand will rise 4.1 percent annually through 2013. The research firm says that gains will be fueled by rising infrastructure investment in developing countries and improved markets in developed areas. Blended cement will increase its dominant position over Portland while ready-mix concrete will remain the fastest-growing outlet.
This would mark a significant turnaround from the last two months. In September, the country's cement firms reported a 1.4% decline in dispatches vis-a-vis the same month last year. In August, cement dispatches were down by 6.6% in comparison to July.
