Cement is an essential ingredient to the construction industry which is growing at a phenomenal pace due to the post-conflict growth trajectory of the economy. The demand for cement has been increasing at a high rate recently due to new infrastructure projects initiated by the Government and the private sector, reconstruction and rehabilitation projects launched in the conflict-affected areas in the Northern and Eastern Provinces, as well as growing trend witnessed in the housing development programmes.

The cement industry and trade estimate the cement market amounts to 4.2 million MT per annum. Some industries experts believe that the quantity of the Sri Lankan cement market is now even at the peak level of 6.2 million MT per annum. It is also estimated that the market is growing at the rate of 10% per annum.
According to the Central Bank Report 2012, the construction sub sector recorded an impressive growth of 21.6% compared to 14.2% in 2011. There are two different sectors in development, public sector and private sector. Public sector construction projects, particularly in the areas of infrastructure development projects such as road development, power projects, port and airport development and housing development projects provided a substantial impetus to the growth in the sector. The private sector contributed towards the growth in the sub sectors like hotel and housing construction activities.
