South Africa Cement, Lime and Allied Materials Manufacturing Market Report 2022 – Sustainability Issues Driving Technological Change in Industry

DUBLIN, May 10, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The report “Manufacture of cement, lime and allied materials in South Africa 2022” has been added to from offer.

South Africa’s cement manufacturing industry is oversupplied and threatened by cheap imports and the proliferation of cheap blended cements. Prolonged economic stagnation has hampered the industry’s recovery, as government construction and infrastructure spending has provided little opportunity for growth over the past five years.

Three new entrants over the past decade have put additional pressure on capacity utilization and producer prices. Cement manufacturing is energy-intensive, and clinker production, on which much of the industry relies, is particularly emission-intensive. These and other sustainability issues are driving technological change in the industry.


Although South Africa has excess cement production capacity, imported cement continues to flow into the country. The past two years have presented the industry with opportunities due to the temporary halt in imports and the adoption of a more aggressive localization policy by the government. However, the domestic market remains overstretched, leading to significant underutilization of capacity and occasional price wars.

There has been an increase in cheap imports and independent blending operations, and protection against trade in substandard products is limited. Although the government has offered protection to the local industry through anti-dumping measures, these protections have reached their statutory lifespan and are being reviewed, creating uncertainty for the industry. .
