Israel Cement Industry – Market Analysis, Forecasts and Opportunity Assessment (2016-2023)
Report on Israel Cement Industry – Market Analysis, Forecasts and Opportunity Assessment (2016-2023)
Introduction on Israel Cement Industry
A cement is a binding agent, which is used for construction. It sets, fortifies, and adheres to other materials to bind them together. Cement is majorly used in its original form, but sometimes it is also used to bind sand and gravel together. To produce a concrete, mortar is used which is formed by a mixture of cement, sand and gravel.
Cement is produced in more than 150 countries across the globe. During 2016, the global production capacity of cement stood at 4.2 billion tonnes. The global per capita consumption of cement is 500 kg per annum.
Cement is used in construction industries heavily in various forms.
In 2012, Israel roughly produced hydraulic around 0.155% of the total global production, by producing 5900 thousand metric tonnes. Israel faced sluggish growth in this industry over the past two decades. Producing at its peak in the beginning years of this century,
The total world production of cement is expected to be around 4.4 billion metric tons in 2020. The expected demand for cement in Africa & Middle East (including Israel) for 2019 is estimated to be 611 million metric tonnes. It was 467 million metric tonnes in 2014, therefore projecting a growth of 30.8%. Hence, to commensurate this increase in demand, it is expected that cement output will increase in Israel also.
Depending on the ability of the cement to set in the presence of water, cement can be bifurcated as:
- Hydraulic Cement: It is also known as Portland Cement. Due to the chemical reaction between the dry ingredients and water it sets and becomes adhesive
- Non-hydraulic Cement: It does not set under the condition of water, rather it reacts with carbon dioxide in the air, to resist attacks by chemicals.
- Clinker Cement
- Ordinary Portland Cement
- Portland Pozzolana Cement
- Portland Blast Furnace Slag Cement
- Sulphate Resisting Portland Cement
- Rapid Hardening Cement
- Oil Well Cement
- White Cement
Cement industries are strategically located near coastal areas. The first plant was set up in Haifa, because of its proximity to the ports, making the exports of cement more viable. Also, there are few other industries located in the region of Jerusalem and Tel-Aviv. Due to internal issues, Israel has banned entry of cement and other construction material in Gaza Strip.
To fulfil the internal domestic demands of cement, Israel imports from another country also. Turkey and Greece’s exported cement in Israel is well accepted.
Also, Nesher (Israeli Company) signed a strategic partnership agreement with the Irish CRH company, for the global expansion of the cement industry.
