19th Asia CemenTrade Summit

24-25 Oct, 2017 - Hanoi, VIETNAM

Pan Pacific Hanoi


"Innovate & Position for growth in Asia"


“Thailand’s Siam City Cement Group wants to expand investment in the production and supply of construction materials and waste treatment in Vietnam’s southern Dong Nai Province, according to its local CEO Philippe Richart”  8/8/17, www.globalcement.com


According to the Vietnam Cement Association, total cement production capacity in the country reached 86 million tons this year, while its local demand was at 60 million tons. Vietnam Cement Association predicted an oversupply of nearly 50Mt/yr by 2020. To help ease the oversupply in the domestic market, Vietnam Ministry of Planning and Investment (MPI) has proposed a reduction in its cement export tax which is currently set at  5%. If the export tax is removed, hopefully it can become more competitive compared to neighboring Chinese, Indonesian, Thai and Japanese cement players.


Where are the demand targets ? Are Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Australia, Cambodia, Nepal the solution to relieve the surplus capacity? Or further away to Africa or even South America? 


“Peru and Sri Lanka have emerged as potential markets for Vietnamese cement and clinker, reporting remarkable import growth in the first quarter of 2017.  2/5/17, http://www.en.vietstock.com.vn/


Cement industry is a very carbon-intensive business and cement manufacturers are under increasing pressure to modify their business strategies and production process to reduce their carbon footprint and work towards a sustainable and efficient business. What innovative technologies are available and their economics given a challenging economic climate ahead? Is the market ready for green cement?

Thailand’s Siam Cement expands into Vietnam with new acquisition

Posted on : 13 Jun, 2017


Vietnam that is recording nearly 7% annual growth is among Thailand’s Siam Cement key destinations for investments. Siam Cement recently struck a deal of $156 million to acquire the entire stake in Vietnam Construction Materials, which runs a number of cement production and grounding plants across several locations in Vietnam. The move is expected to boost Siam Cement’s overseas production capacity by 40%.


The newly acquired cement facilities in Vietnam has a total capacity at 3.1 million tons – which will be Siam’s largest production base outside Thailand.


Siam Cement has also invested in other ASEAN countries that includes - cement plants in Cambodia, Indonesia and Myanmar. It is running trials at a new plant in Laos, expected to commence operations in 2017. This new plant is likely to raise the group's capacity abroad to 10.5 million tons, or nearly half of the 23 million tons it boasts at home.


Acknowledging there is oversupply in ASEAN cement markets, Siam Cement stresses on investments in the area of “mergers and acquisitions" only.


The company also operates a packaging plant in Vietnam through a JV with the Japanese Trade Union Confederation, or Rengo.


It also recently acquired an additional stake in the planned Long Son petrochemical complex in southern Vietnam from Qatar Petroleum.
