The company has announced its launch of a B2B e-commerce platform for the building materials segment with an investment of around INR20,000m over the next five years. The platform will primarily focus on MSMEs in the building materials sector with the potential to further extend it into other relevant categories. The key value proposition would be an integrated procurement solution, including on-time delivery and a superior product range at competitive pricing. 

Capacity expansion of its cement subsidiary, UltraTech Cement Ltd, is also on track. On completion, the company’s total grey cement production capacity in India will be 131.25Mta, which is expected to rise to 153.85Mta by FY25. Cement demand over the next five years is forecast to grow at a CAGR of eight per cent, according to the company.
