CW Group is pleased to announce the release of the India Cement & Construction Materials Journal 16th issue.
The first issue of 2014 will enjoy a content refresh and new developments with compliments and support of Dr. Surjya Narayana Pati, former Joint Director at the National Council for Cement and Building Materials, but also Mr. SNM Khan and Mr. Pradeep Kumar.
Their contribution, experience, and collaboration with India Cement & Construction Materials Journal will be presented in a special feature of this edition.
Dr. Pati has been a front runner for incorporating the concept of Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) in the Indian cement and construction industry for sustainable and green development and has been noted in various publishing projects. Our main feature in this issue titled “Life Cycle Assessment - A study of the construction industry” presents Dr Pati analysis and findings on LCA.
Furthermore, the ICCM also covers the latest report released by CW Research, the 1H2014 Global Cement Volume Forecast Report (GCVFR). The report predicts that global cement demand will pause in 2014 at 3.9 percent YoY, following a stronger-than-expected 2013. In 2013, global cement demand expanded 6.6 percent to 3.99 billion tons on surging Chinese demand.
Finally, the CW Group’s team of analysts focuses on the wider South-East Asia industry context to highlight the market trends for cement, both in India and the neighbor countries.
