Key Trends in the Market

Cement is a type of binder that sets, hardens, and sticks to other materials to keep them together. It is produced as a fine powder by combining minerals like limestone (calcium carbonate), clay, shale, silica sand, iron ore, and gypsum. Its applications in construction are vast, as it serves as a crucial component for creating concrete, mortar, and grout.

 

  • One of the major South Africa cement market trends is the country's ongoing infrastructure development. The government has prioritised infrastructure development projects, including roads, bridges, ports, and housing, to stimulate economic growth and address historical inequalities. These infrastructure initiatives drive the demand for cement, as it is a vital component in construction activities.
  • The demand for affordable housing, particularly in urban areas, is fuelling the growth of the housing sector in South Africa. The government's efforts to address the housing backlog and provide low-income families with affordable housing are some of the key factors contributing to the growing demand for cement.
  • The adoption of sustainable and environmentally friendly construction practices is one of the major factors supporting the South Africa cement market growth. There is a growing focus on utilising building materials and construction techniques that are ecologically sound. Cement manufacturers are actively embracing eco-friendly manufacturing processes, which involve the use of alternative fuels and the incorporation of supplementary cementitious materials, to reduce carbon emissions.
