Vietnamese cement exports grow as Chinese production falters

Nguyễn Quang Cung, vice chairman of the Vietnam Building Material Association, says that local industry cement exports grew strongly in the first quarter of 2018 due to Chinese cement plants shutting down because of pollution and power shortages. He made the comments at the Vietbuild conference, according to the Viet Nam News newspaper. Local cement production rose by 18% year-on-year in the first quarter and exports rose by 68%.

Cung said that the Chinese government ordered the closure of a series of cement plants from 15 November 2017 to 15 March 2018 due to environmental concerns and a shortage of electricity during the winter. These circumstances turned China, the global clinker exporter in 2016, into an importer of cement at the end of 2017. It has mainly imported clinker from Vietnam, at a volume of 1.5Mt/month. Vietnam’s clinker exports ‘skyrocketed’ in 2017 due to this.

The association expected the country to export 15Mt of clinker in 2017 but it exported nearly 21Mt instead. It also anticipates that plant closures in China will increase in 2018.
