Weakness in cement prices continued in Jun’22


Average cement prices continued to witness a decline of 2.3% MoM in Jun’22 following a 2.8% decline in May’22. The price decline is driven by sharp decline in East (-6% MoM) followed by Central (-4% MoM) and West (-2% MoM) regions. Prices in North and South remained flat on MoM basis. Overall, cement prices for 1Q was up 3% QoQ (+5% YoY). Sharp uptick in commodity prices will continue to impact the margins in 1QFY23. The volumes transported through railway freight indicate a minor improvement in demand on MoM basis. In comparison to last year, transported volumes in May’22 reported strong growth of 30% YoY, owing to a low base. Continued softening in demand has led to weakness in the cement prices in Jun’22.
