27 Jul 2012 • by Natalie Aster

The Brazilian cement industry recorded a CAGR of 17.56% during 2007–2011. The cement market is projected to record a CAGR of 9.02% over 2012–2016.

Brazil’s positive economic outlook is expected to drive construction industry growth. During the review period, GDP recorded a CAGR of 3.90% and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.16% over the forecast period. Construction net output also registered significant growth during the review period, with a CAGR of 15.08%. This healthy economic growth has driven the infrastructure construction industry in Brazil, which will support cement consumption.

Brazil will host both the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games. Preparation for these events is expected to increase infrastructure investment over the forecast period. As part of these preparations, there is expected to be an increase in the construction of stadiums, hotels, commercial venues, airports and roads. As these construction projects depend heavily on cement, this will drive the growth of the cement industry.

According to the report “Brazilian Cement Industry Outlook: Business Opportunities and Future Growth Potential to 2016” by BRICdata, the increasing investments by the government to improve the country’s infrastructure will support the growth over the forecast period. The Brazilian government has already commenced the second phase of its PAC 2 growth acceleration program, through which BRL959 billion (US$526 billion) will be invested in housing, transport, energy and sanitation projects during 2011–2014. The huge investments in the infrastructure sector will fuel the demand for cement.
