The opening session of the 15th NCB International Seminar saw senior industry figures review the Indian cement sector. As the second-largest cement-producing country in the world, the Indian cement industry has a hopeful outlook for the coming year. An upcoming boom in housing and other infrastructure projects is expected to drive capacity increases even further.
