The end of the year comes with the usual price discounts in cementitious commodities
According to CW Research’s Cement and Clinker Price Assessments for Mediterranean Basin and Persian Gulf, FOB prices for cement and clinker recorded a slight decrease in both regions in December.
During the last month of 2018, in the Mediterranean Basin region, trade prices for both prompt deliveries of bulk ordinary Portland cement and clinker slipped mildly when compared to November, with cement dispatches reaching between USD 39 and USD 41 per ton.
"The end of the year comes with the usual price discounts in cementitious commodities in order to clear unsold stock. In the Med Basin, some key players are investing in CO2 reduction as a key resolution for 2019”, notes Ana Almeida, CW Group’s analyst.
CW Research’s December update to the Mediterranean Basin and Clinker price assessment report covers the latest news in the region’s trading situation.
