Improving demand outlook for SCC, Thailand

Improving demand outlook for SCC, Thailand
Published: 15 July 2014


Despite demand for cement and building materials yet to show signs of recovery in Thailand, consumption is expected to improve, particularly from next year, according to a recent report.

Analysts at TISCO Securities believe the economic policy of the new government will help boost domestic consumption and raise public investments, which will turn to demand for basic materials, e.g. cement, building materials, paper & packaging and plastics, all of which are SCC's products. However, the demand from the new infrastructure projects will not be seen until 2015 and there is a risk of a delay.
