Vietnam cement exports fall

Vietnam: In the first quarter of 2024, Vietnam’s cement and clinker exports maintained a volume of 7.9Mt but represented a 11.7% year-on-year decrease in value to US$298m, according to the General Statistics Office.

The value decrease is reportedly attributed to China’s sluggish real estate market and anti-dumping duties imposed by the Philippines. Export prices also declined slightly, with the average price in 2023 dropping by 3% year-on-year. The Vietnam Cement Association anticipates further challenges for these exports in 2024, facing increased competition from the Philippines, Central America and South Africa. Domestic production is expected to exceed demand, with consumption estimated at 60-62Mt, prompting intensified export efforts to manage an excess production of around 30Mt.
