Holcim plans to expand in India
Ambuja Cements and ACC together have 15 integrated plants. They will have 14 grinding units with a cumulative cement grinding capacity of 63.7 mtpa by 2016 with the ongoing expansion. They also have 49 ready-mix plants.
The new government has proposed various measures that should drive cement demand. The company expects that the supply-demand balance was gradually improving although about 100 million tonne oversupply remains across India. According to Holcim, India´s cement demand is expected to reach 310-320 million tonne with available supply estimated at 400-410 million tonne by 2018.
