Cement Channel Check - Price Hikes Across Regions; Sustainability Is The Key: Anand Rathi


BQ Prime’s special research section collates quality and in-depth equity and economy research reports from across India’s top brokerages, asset managers and research agencies. These reports offer BQ Prime’s subscribers an opportunity to expand their understanding of companies, sectors and the economy.

Except for the West, across regions in September 2022 companies announced hikes per bag of cement (North ~Rs 10-15, East ~Rs 15, South ~Rs 30-40, Central ~Rs 15). Dealers say prices have been under pressure in July/August 2022 and declined across regions due to weak demand during the monsoon.

Whether such hikes would be sustainable will be key to watch due to stable/weak demand (monsoon/festivals—Ganesh Chaturthi/Shradh).

However, the recent cooling off of crude prices and 16% month-on-month correction in domestic pet-coke prices will result in reduced pet coke/coal/diesel prices over the next quarters on exhaustion of old high cost inventory. This will aid in improving operating performance.
