The 44th issue of ICCM analyzes how the Indian cement industry is incorporating green technology and paving its way towards sustainability and the production of green cement. Ahmad Al-Rousan, Secretary General of the Arab Union for Cement and Building Materials, discusses how oil prices, terrorism and the global economic crisis are impacting construction projects in the region. CW Research analyzes the global cement consumption landscape over the first half of 2018 and explains how the shrinking Chinese cement demand, coupled with the latest trade and geopolitical events, is bound to shape global cement demand in the coming years. ICCM also looks back on the evolution of cement prices over the third quarter of the year, which were supported by an overall healthy economic environment.
The 43rd issue of ICCM features an interview with Phil Hodgson, Managing Director at Calix, about carbon capture and storage (CCS) and how it can help the cement sector step up its ecologic game. We also assess how the Indian cement industry can withstand increasing input costs and adverse weather conditions. Emphasis is also given to cement prices in 2Q 2018 and the trends and reasons behind their positive evolution. Moreover, CW Research looks into the market of white cement, a premium building material traditionally favored by developed markets, but that is rising among emerging economies. ICCM also draws a timeline of the latest developments in the US-China trade dispute and ponders on how a possible trade war could affect the global cement industry.
