Decarbonizing Asia’s cement industry amid shifting markets dynamics!
Efforts to decarbonize the cement industry in Asia are underway, with a focus on adopting cleaner technologies, alternative materials, and sustainable practices. National policies and industry initiatives play a crucial role in driving these changes. Continuous research and development are essential for achieving significant reductions in carbon emissions from the cement sector.

The implementation of carbon capture is essential for the cement industry to attain net-zero emissions. Innovations in carbon capture are crucial for reducing costs and improving the economics of CCS projects by enabling the expansion of infrastructure. Many cement companies are embarking on this journey. Find out from SCG Cement their CCUS technology roadmap.
Cement markets in Asia are experiencing various degrees of growth and stagnation. India’s market is booming prompting expansions and new investment, but will the growth continue? China market remains weak, how soon will it recover? Vietnam’s cement market is projected to recover this year with government increasing infrastructure spendings and its ambitious exports strategy, while Malaysia’s cement market is looking bright with government infrastructure spending. Philippines market turned challenging as pressure from imports continue. Cement producers in Indonesia are optimistic due to government's infrastructure budget, positive economic growth rate and expected lower interest rates.
