Uganda sees big drop in cement prices
17 October 2019


Uganda has seen increased competition and lower cement prices with the entry of Simba Cement (National Cement – Devki Group) and Kampala Cement. A 50kg bag now retails at an average price of UGX28,000 (US$5.70), down from UGX39,000 (US$10.80).

While Hima Cement (LafargeHolcim)and Tororo Cement remain the dominant players, competition has been accelerated by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Co-operative's measures to fast-track licensing of new cement manufacturers.
