Cement demand picks up
According to the news, Dalmia, JK Super Cement and UltraTech mentioned in a meeting that their earnings have been affected in the September quarter. Brokerage firm Jefferies says that the average cement prices were down 5.5 per cent in the September quarter but now it will bounce back. Brokerages say that the government is increasing spending on infrastructure activities, which will support cement companies. Rating agency Crisil has also said that the prices will increase, expressing the possibility of a pick-up in demand.
building a house will be expensive
If cement prices rise, customers may face a double whammy. One, the cost of building a new house will increase. Second, citing this increased cost, builders can make flats even more expensive. Due to the increase in the repo rate, there is already pressure of more EMI on the customers. In such a situation, going up of cement prices can put them in trouble.
