Poland on track to break production records in 2019
23 October 2019

In 2018 cement production in Poland broke records to reach 18.94Mt, according to data from the Central Statistical Office (CSO). Furthermore, production is up by 0.4 per cent YoY to nearly 12.3Mt in the 8M19.

Looking towards 2020, Andrzej Reclik, president of Górażdże Cement, has forecast stabilisation at the current level and for final results to be close to the current year, according to an interview with WNP. Mr Reclik noted that it is difficult to increase dynamics when the market is already at such a high level.

"When looking at the cost of climate policy, we should also bear in mind the threats for our industry, such as imports across the eastern border of Poland and the whole EU," he added, looking to the absence of the CO2 allowance costs for cement plants located further into eastern Europe.
