Construction materials market: cement production and consumption decrease

The cement market condition over 9 months in 2016

The new joint project from the “Construction.ru” Russian online journal and the CM PRO independent investment and consulting company for the construction materials industry will show the monthly condition of the market for various construction materials. Today we present the results of the 3rd quarter of 2016 on the market for cement. 

 

Cement production and consumption is in difficulty this year. It decreased by 9% as compared with the same period of 2015: to 18.35m tons and 18.387m tons correspondingly.

This is mainly influenced by general tendencies of the construction complex: in particular, in the first 9 months of 2016 such important indices as “Construction work volume” decreased by 4%. And though putting housing in operation in the 3rd quarter grew by 1.7% as compared with the same period of 2015, the commissioning of individual housing decreased by 2.9%. Consequently, commercial concrete production fell by 0.8%, and reinforced concrete products and structures by 12.3%.

 

Production

The Siberian Federal District showed the largest decrease in cement production — 19.4%. The only federal district where a positive rate of growth was registered (+1.5%) was the North Caucasian Federal District. The majority of the RF had negative dynamics of production, except the Voronezh (+51.5%), the Kaluga (+37.1%), the Tula (+26.2%), and the Saratov (+16.8%) regions, the Chechen Republic (+14.8%) and some other regions.

APROPOS

As “Kommersant” reports, within the first half of 2017, the Federal Agency on Technical Regulating and Metrology (Rosstandart) will carry out a series of unscheduled checks of the enterprises connected with cement production, sale and import.  The thing is that the market participants have noted a growth in counterfeit construction materials production, aggravating the situation on the market, which is far from being easy in the first place. In particular, according to experts’ assessments, the share of counterfeit cement on the market is now 18%, and on private markets, 50%.

 

EXPERT OPINION

Yekaterina Molodtsova, Head of Operative Marketing Department at LafargeHolcim Russia:

— The situation on the market is an objective reality. Our task is to find new growth points: new customers, new products, new markets.  Next year, we are not expecting any fall. Our prognosis for 2017 is that gradual recovery of the demand for cement will start, though if the rouble devalues further, the dynamics may not appear earlier than in 2018.  

As far as the struggle against counterfeits is concerned, it must be complex. The introduction of compulsory certification surely brought some positive results. But to change the situation crucially the struggle is to be carried out in all directions. It is important, in particular, that regulation in the sphere of retail trading should be enhanced. According to our data, a lot of uncertified cement was present on the market of packed products in 2016.
