2012-09-25 11:31:34 - The UAE Cement Industry Outlook: Business Opportunities and Future Growth Potential to 2016 - a new market research report on companiesandmarkets.com
The UAE is ranked as the second-largest producer of cement in the Middle East and North Africa region (MENA), only behind Saudi Arabia. The continued slowdown in the UAE property and construction sector continues to haunt cement companies in the country. This led to an under utilization of capacity and a fall in prices. Production capacity is more than two times the domestic demand so companies are now looking at export markets in the MENA region. Margins are shrinking further as operating costs soar. However, the long-term prospects for the UAE cement industry are good and the industry is expected to reap the benefits of growing investments in infrastructure in the country, GCC and other key foreign markets.
