THE YEAR UNDER REVIEW

The Indian cement industry witnessed a growth of 6.3% in the financial year 2017-18, bouncing back from negative growth of 1.2% in previous fiscal year 2016-17. The revival in growth was on account of Government''s thrust and increase in spending on infrastructure projects under Bharatmala, Sagarmala, dedicated freight corridors for railways, development of Smart Cities and push towards affordable housing and materialisation of pent up demand. The real estate sector witnessed disruption in the construction activities on account of after effects of demonetization, introduction of Real Estate (Regulation and Development) Act, 2016 (RERA) and implementation of Goods and Service Tax (GST). Cement production during the year was about 297 Million Tons as against the installed capacity of 455 Million Tons with capacity utilization of about 65.3%. The cumulative index of cement production increased by 5.7% in comparison to decline of 1.3% in previous year. The supply overhang continued in the Indian Cement industry during 2017-18 with capacity utilization of around 65%.

The demand for cement during the first half of the financial year 2017-18 was sluggish on account of after effects of demonetization and implementation of GST from 1st July 2017. The adverse effect was more pronounced in housing and infrastructure segments. The cement sector''s growth in the second half of 2017-18 was mainly attributable towards the initiatives being undertaken by the government to boost the infrastructure sector by additional spending on the infrastructure facilities. Consequently, the cement prices remained depressed in first half of the year but bounced back in second half.

Consumption of cement in your home market Gujarat increased by about 3%. The cement prices in Gujarat increased by about 17% over the previous year''s prices and regained the price levels prevalent in FY 2014-15.

The cement production for the year ended March 2018 was 1.40 million tonnes, around 2 percent lower than the cement production of 1.44 million tonnes in the previous year ended March 2017.
