About the Event

The Quarry & Aggregate market is growing on a higher rate in Africa than we can expect it to be. Contemporary trends in construction aggregates like manufactured sand, recycled aggregates & rising investments in global infrastructure are thriving global construction aggregates market. Meanwhile, high transportation costs, stringent zoning regulations, seasonal factors & rising energy costs are restraining the growth of global aggregate market. According to a market report, “the global construction aggregate market is estimated to reach a value of US$ 329.3 Billion by 2015 end, which is expected to expand at a CAGR of 6.0% from 2015 to 2021, to reach a market value of US$ 468.2 Billion by 2021. In terms of volume, the global construction aggregates market is estimated to register a CAGR of 4.6% over the forecast period”. Among regions, China is expected to dominate the construction aggregates market, expanding at CAGR of 5.9% in terms of volume. The extension of the construction industry, increasing construction spending, especially in developing economies such as India and the Middle East, are some of the other major market drivers.

The global cement market is expected to reach over US$ 725 Billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 7.3% from 2017 to 2025. The upcoming global construction projects include major events as well as a list of the top importers & exporters, are affecting the construction aggregates market globally. The prime focus of the major players in this market is on mergers, acquisitions & on expanding the production capacities. Experts estimate that the cement industry is expected to witness an upward trend.

The East African cement market reached a volume of 14.4 Million Tons in 2017. The market is further projected to reach a volume of 22.2 Million Tons by 2023, at a CAGR of 7.5% during 2018-2023. Based on the application, the residential sector is the largest application segment followed by the commercial and infrastructure sectors. The rising FDI in East Africa has the major contribution to the growth of infrastructure industry in the region. The World Bank on the other hand is financing the road development programme in Ethiopia so as to improve the country’s highway network. Since this will require a large amount of cement for strengthening the base of the roads, it is projected to boost the demand for cement in the country.

Besides, The East African cement industry experienced a sustained growth but this graph has declined since 2015 due to increased power tariffs, currency devaluations and high interest rates, leading to a slowdown in the region’s construction activities. Additionally, imports from Asian countries resulted in an oversupply of cement within the region; Ethiopia enjoys the leading position in the East Africa cement market on account of the thriving construction and infrastructure activities in the country.

Other than Ethiopia in the East, From South African Region Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi are flourishing in infrastructure. There is a high fragmentation in the South African market with the presence of numerous small and large manufacturers who compete in terms of prices and quality. Notwithstanding the cyclical nature & recent decline in the construction industry, some cement companies have defied these odds to achieve higher sales. Regardless of all the challenges, The South African Cement industry is presuming to witness a trend owing to support from government initiatives, growing construction and housing projects, and investments by new entrants. In Uganda, for example, the built out of Entebbe International Airport, redesigning of Malaba-Kampala railway route into a standard gauge line, and the upcoming construction of Bukasa port are supporting the cement industry.

There are wide number of opportunities in the construction of residential & commercial high-rise building structures in African countries, turning into a good cement demand in the region. An RMB Nigeria Stockbrokers report predicts that the Nigerian cement sector could be at the beginning of the next growth cycle with 7% growth, they further predicted stronger consumption growth of 12% between 2018 and 2023. There has been a vigorous growth in the cement industry because of investments made by the regional governments. Increasing urbanization & continuous private and public construction works have created a massive demand of cement in Africa. For the case, Rwanda is investing in the development of roads; rail and water transport facilities which will result in a significant demand for cement in the region.

In the meantime, South Africa’s growth in the sector is reaching significantly higher levels of volume on the back of newly commissioned plants and increased development in, among other, Rwanda, Botswana and Zimbabwe. This is providing local companies opportunities to amplify their market capitalisations in the continent.  All these variables will affect local companies, particularly as African economic growth has turned local companies’ attention to more lucrative markets. Furthermore, cement companies have been affected by labor unrest in the market at their clients’ businesses, which resulted in substantial delays at some of the country’s major construction projects.

The primary agenda of Quarry and Aggregate Conference is reviewing Global and Africa’s growth in the Quarrying & Aggregate Sector. To discuss opportunities for international and local companies, ways to improve their business growth. The main focus will be on the key developments and strategies of the key market players. The cyclical nature of the market and the lack of a significant economic recovery in South Africa.  Major Market Fragmentation and how it will affect the entire cement aggregate business in a whole. The major issue of Labour Unrest will also be scrutinized. Eventually the principal agenda will be new government policies and how it supports the Cement Aggregate Business & Companies.
