Vietnam cement companies sold 41.54Mt of cement in the domestic market in the first 10 months of this year, including 4.27Mt in October, the country’s Ministry of Construction (MoC) said.

The 10-month figure accounted for 85.6 per cent of the year’s target, the ministry said on its website, giving no YoY comparative figures.

Clinker and cement exports were estimated at 11.68Mt over the Jan-Oct 2014 period, including 2.81Mt of cement.

The country’s cement sales are predicted to rise by 1.5-3 per cent YoY to between 62-63Mt, comprising 48.5-49Mt of domestic sales and 13.5-14Mt of exports.
