The Zambian cement industry is currently dominated by Lafarge cement Zambia. With its two manufacturing plants, Lafarge Cement Zambia is the industry leader and the oldest on the local cement market.

Customers in the cement industry will have alternative selection of products from among the competing firms, resulting in cheaper and better products. 

With an increase in demand for cement on the local market due to an upswing in the construction industry, these firms are a welcome development. These companies target the export market as well. But initially, emphasis is placed on satisfying the local market.

Future Prospects

In view of the current construction trends on the Zambian market, these firms are guaranteed of a ready market both inside and outside the country. The increased interest of these firms in setting up the cement plants is as a result of Zambia’s positive macro-economic environment.
