India Cement and Construction Materials Journal - Issue 42

The 42nd issue of ICCM shows the evolution of Shree Cement through the words of its Managing Director, Hari Mohan Bangur. In a time when a nationwide petcoke ban in India is still on the table, ICCM looks into the domestic coal market and whether the fossil fuel is a viable option to replace petcoke as fuel. We also focus on UltraTech's expansion strategy and how it continues to solidify its leading position through a combination of greenfield and brownfield expansions. CW Research presents its thorough analysis of the current world seaborne cementitious trade market, as well as a forecast that includes trade trends for the upcoming five years. Additional focus is given to the global lime market, including a forecast of consumption trends through 2023. Looking back on the first quarter of the year, CW Research tracks pricing movements for gray cement in major cement trading markets.
