Increasing urbanization in Asia has accelerated demand for more houses, buildings and infrastructure. The rising growth for cement and building materials is sustaining current capacity and paving the way for expansions.
“China’s demand will continue to be high, with cement production expected to peak at 1.25 trillion MT around the year 2010.”
“Holcim Indonesia reported in September 2007 its sales revenue had grown by 17% during the past 6 months with a volume increase of 3.2 million tonne of cement and clinker together with 464 000 m3 of RMC.”
However, with greater prospects come new challenges. Escalating freight rate has hampered the export market. Global warming and increasing awareness is shifting the industry to re-position its environmental stand. CemenTrade Asia 2008 will cover these vital issues. Into its 10th year, CemenTrade Asia ensures
networking amongst major cement and concrete producers, cementitious materials suppliers as well as various entities of the supply chain. So mark your calendar for CemenTrade Asia 2008 and be empowered with the latest happenings in the cement industry
