Cement consumption in Spain has fallen again in October by more than 11 per cent, to 1,003,618t. As a result, domestic cement demand during the first 10 months of 2013 has declined sharply by nearly 21 per cent, with total demand standing at  9,351,734t, some 2.5Mt less than in the same period of 2012, according to Oficemen, Spain’s cement association

Cement companies associated with Oficemen are focussing their efforts on a major export drive to maintain production levels. However, the announced reform of the power market is expected to erode their competitiveness, according to the industry association.
