Cement is big business in the East African region. Domestic income is rising and as a result so is the number of projects in infrastructure and housing. Over the last decade, it’s estimated that consumption of cement has grown by 14%. 14.4m ton is expected to be used in 2017. The nearby country of Angola is seeing major expansion by cement manufacturers to keep up with the growing demand.
