Cement consumption in Azerbaijan is expected to increase by 5.8 per cent per year until 2012 based on the growth of GDP per capita. It leads to a consumption of 505kg per capita, a recent report by the Asian Development Bank (ADB) said.
"In 2008, domestic consumption of cement in Azerbaijan amounted to 3.2Mt, which was 374kg per capita," a statement said.
It is compared to the level of consumption per capita in Eastern Europe, but much smaller than in other countries of the region.
