Although the annual domestic demand for cement is about 9.9 million tonnes, the cement production volume of the 11 currently operating factories can meet the demand, according to the Ministry of Industry.
Domestically, there are 19 cement plants operated through the public-private joint ventures, eight of which are undergoing mechanical improvements and currently 11 factories are manufacturing cement.
These plants produced 8,123,570 tonnes of cement in the financial year 2022-2023 and were able to meet domestic cement demand, according to the No 2 Heavy Industries Enterprise.
Some cement plants have been temporarily shut down due to operational changes and new equipment expansion.
It can be produced locally to meet the annual cement demand. Among 19 domestic cement plants, some plants are equipped with five machine lines capable of producing 5,000 tonnes of cement or more, nine machine lines capable of producing between 1,000 tonnes and 5,000 tonnes and 13 machine lines capable of producing less than 1,000 tonnes.
Among three State-owned cement plants — No 31 Heavy Industry (Thayet) and No 32 Heavy Industry (Kyangin) — had to stop production due to high energy consumption, high production costs and difficulty in competing in the market.
According to the information, government-private partnerships will also be implemented for operating the aforesaid two plants. — TWA/KZL
