Cement strategy must ensure balance of supply, demand

The strategy on the development of cement industry by 2030 towards 2050 would ensure a balance between the supply and demand for cement.
 
This is because the cement industry will have more supply with more cement factories being operational this year.
 
The strategy would be built based on the cement industry’s development over the past years, according to directions for the development of the cement industry by Deputy Prime Minister Trịnh Đình Dũng.
 
The Việt Nam Cement Association reported Việt Nam has 83 cement production lines with a total capacity of 98.56 million tonnes. This capacity will continue to increase because the country is expected to have some cement production lines coming into operation this year with a total capacity of 10.1 million tonnes.
 
With those projects, the design capacity of Việt Nam’s cement industry will be some 108.66 million tonnes.
 
The association said the actual production capacity of the cement industry can reach 120 million to 130 million tonnes per year. Meanwhile, in the plan, the total consumption of cement is expected to be 93 million tonnes by 2020. Therefore, the industry will have excessive supply of some 25 million to 30 million tonnes.
 
According to building material experts, there is a contradiction that while some new factories are set up or some existing ones are expanding production, some cement companies could not sell their products.
 
To deal with this situation, the association and the cement manufacturers have proposed that the Government and the Ministry of Construction should delay the investment in building cement factories during the period between 2019 and 2025.
 
The cement production lines coming into operation this year include production line 3 and 4 in the second phase at the Vissai Group’s Sông Lam Cement Company, with a total capacity of 3.8 million tonnes per year, Hà Tiên Kaitian Cement of Thai Group with a capacity of 4.5 million tonnes and Tân Thắng Cement Company in Nghệ An Province with a capacity of 1.8 million tonnes per year. — VNS
