India Cement & Construction Materials, vol 1 / issue 17

The latest issue of India Cement & Construction Materials journal is now released. Issue 17 covers the most important story in the industry in past years: the Lafarge – Holcim merger. If it materialized, the transaction will fundamentally redraw the global map of the industry and the impact would be seen not only in the cement segment of course, but also in the ready-mix and aggregates segments, as well as in the wider supply-chain.

Furthermore, this issue also introduces two African countries that for decades have had a tensioned relationship: Senegal and Mauritania.

The third feature of this edition of India Cement & Construction Materials presents the methodology of the LCA, in the second part of the “Life Cycle Assessment - A study of the construction industry” study that Dr. Pati, former Joint Director at the National Council for Cement and Building Materials, has shared with our magazine.

Also, do not miss the latest updates in cement and energy markets from the CW Research team, as well as the most important news updated from India and around.

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.

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.

India Cement & Construction Materials, vol 1 / issue 11

We are thrilled with the release of the March / April issue of ICCM. The magazine is evolving to a format more oriented to reflect our consulting and research expertise. We have created a new section called “CW Research and Analytics” to provide our readers an in-depth analysis of the most relevant developments in the industry. One of the themes included in this new section is energy, probably one of the most analyzed and most relevant topics in the cement industry today. That’s why our feature stories in this issue focus on India’s economic recovery, the challenges brought by the power crisis and the effects it has on the cement industry. We also provide an insight on the cement industry situation in countries like Sri Lanka, Nepal, Pakistan and Bangladesh and an analysis on the cement equipment order intake and backlog index for the last quarter of 2012, covering some of the latest technological trends adopted by the construction industry.
