Oman-based Raysut Cement has announced that it is seeking a 75% stake in a cement terminal in the Maldives, as part of its long-term global expansion strategy. It is also constructing a 1.0Mt/yr cement grinding plant in collaboration with MSG Group in Somaliland, internationally recognised as an autonomous region of Somalia.

Cement investment in Africa continues to draw new players amid rising local production and cheap imports. Some of the expansion includes  Morocco’s  Ouled Ghanem cement plant in the province of El Jadida, 150km south of Casablanca, to be completion in 2022, Raysut Cement’s expansion plans into Africa, from building a  grinding plant in Somaliland to possible greenfield project in Kenya as well as acquisition in Uganda and South Africa.

With the cement market getting more crowded, what are the strategies producers adopt to stay competitive? Especially when demand hasn’t been able to catch up with supply in many countries? Is export the solutions or M&A the way forward? How to survive and respond to the specific difficulties in the region to maintain and strengthen competitiveness?

With the current global economy in uncertainty due to the coronavirus outbreak, how will this impact Africa’s economic performance?

Shipping fuel regulation to cut sulphur levels (IMO 2020) comes into this January, is there any impact on freight cost to the cement industry?  Are ship owners looking at cost sharing in the value chain to minimize the impact on their bottom line?

Energy intensive cement industry is under pressure to look at alternative fuels to cut down carbon emissions as sustainability gains importance. The industry can reduce carbon emissions in the short-term by about 30% by replacing fossil fuels with renewable energy sources, improving energy efficiency and reducing clinker content. Nigeria’s Dangote Cement has started to use gas turbines at its cement plant in Tanzania. It is not only a cost effective way of power generation but also environment friendly. Meanwhile with carbon tax being implemented in South Africa last year, the country’s AfriSam is indicating the amount of carbon tax payable on each specific bag of cement (which differs among brands), allowing customers to identify the AfriSam cement brands with lower carbon footprints.
