Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Cement Market in Nigeria 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Cement Market in Nigeria: Cement Company of Northern Nigeria, Dangote, Lafarge and UniCem

The other prominent vendors are: AshakaCem, Atlas Cement and BUA Cement

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Nigeria is facing a housing storage with a deficit of more than 17 million housing units as of April 2015. The housing mortgage industry has long been plagued with problems such as high interest rates. However, in 2014, the government launched the Nigeria Mortgage Finance Programme, aimed at providing mortgages to 10,000 first-time home buyers. The plan facilitates repayment tenures of 15-20 years, enabling the middle and low-income population to afford housing. Residential construction activities should increase as a result, thereby propelling the demand for cement.”

According to the report, according to estimates by the Cement Manufacturing Association of Nigeria, from 2002-2012, cement manufacturers invested over $4 billion in Nigeria to increase production in the country. This extensive investment will continue, with $2 billion of new plants being commissioned in the next two to three years.

Further, the report states that the architecture of a cement factory involves setting up a grinding plant, a rotary kiln, and a power plant. All of this requires heavy investment.
