Cement Price: House Of Reps Sends Warning To Cement Manufacturers

As Nigerians anticipate a drop in cement prices following recent reductions in other commodity costs, the high price of cement continues to impact the real estate sector and individuals aspiring to build homes.

Several factors contribute to the elevated prices of cement in Nigeria, significantly influencing the construction industry and housing affordability.

1. Production Costs: The cost of producing cement in Nigeria remains high due to the price of energy and raw materials. Cement manufacturing is energy-intensive, and with fluctuating power supply issues, manufacturers often resort to using diesel generators, which increases operational costs that are passed on to consumers.

2. Transportation Costs: The logistical cost of transporting cement from manufacturing plants to different parts of the country adds a substantial burden due to the poor state of roads and infrastructure. This challenge is particularly acute during the rainy season when transportation becomes even more problematic.

3. Import Restrictions: While Nigeria has vast mineral deposits suitable for cement production, import restrictions on cement and clinker have been implemented to encourage local production. However, these restrictions can lead to supply shortages that drive up prices when local production is unable to meet rising demand.

4. High Demand: The demand for cement in Nigeria continues to rise due to rapid urbanization and population growth. The construction of new infrastructures, such as roads and buildings, further stretches the demand-supply balance, pushing prices upward.

5. Market Oligopoly: The Nigerian cement market is dominated by a few major players, which can influence pricing and competition dynamics. The limited competition allows these major cement manufacturers to set higher prices that reflect their market power.
