How many Cement plants are producing in Turkey 2020?

History of Hagia Sophia Grand Mosque, Istanbul-Turkey

Cement has been in use by humans throughout history; variations of the material were used by the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians, with the earliest archaeological discovery dated to 12-10,000BC in modern-day Turkey.

The Romans used a mixture of lime (calcium oxide) and pozzolan – crushed volcanic ash – to create hydraulic cements, which could set under water. Other cements used crushed brick, tiles and ceramic pottery as aggregates. Famous historical buildings made from concrete, still standing today, are the Colosseum and Pantheon in Rome, and the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul.

 

Development of Portland Cement in Turkey

The Turkish cement industry traces its history back over more than a century to 1911, when it had a capacity of just 20,000t/yr from the Aslan Çimento plant in the then-capital Istanbul. However, until 1950 little development was seen in the industry with just four new plants at Ankara, Zeytinburnu, Kartal and Sivas.

The industry saw a step-change in 1953, when the Turkish Cement Industry Company (ÇISAN), a public enterprise, was set up to commission 15 new cement plants throughout Turkey. A total of 17 more were added between 1963 and 1980 by the national and regional governments in order to help regional development. The Turkish Manufacturers’ association (TCMA) was formed in 1957 to represent the interests of the growing industry.

Geographical 

Turkey is a large country in the Mediterranean. It is unique in that it is partly in Asia and partly in Europe both geographically and culturally, with borders to countries as diverse as Greece and Iran. The country has a large and rapidly-growing construction industry and has one of the largest cement industries in the world. Turkey produced 67.8Mt of cement in 2011, more than any country in Europe. 

The lands that constitute modern Turkey have a rich and varied history, a consequence of the country’s geographical position.

 

Cement Industry in Turkey

Economic slump hits cement hard

The Cement Sector in Turkey, which is the largest producer of Europe, after its nearly three-year continuous growth has entered a downward trend in consequence of the negative developments in the Turkish economy since August 2018. In addition to the slowdown in construction works in recent years, the adverse economic conditions encountered in Turkey reduced the demand for cement, as it has been case for many domestic products.

As a result of the decreasing demand for cement, the total production in the sector, which shrank by 9.9% in 2018 compared to the previous year, continued to contract and shrank by 21.4% in 2019. Due to the overall contraction in the sector, the capacity utilization ratio of the producers dropped to 50% in 2019.

 

Housing, infrastructure down-turns affect sales

In addition to the stagnation in housing market, the slowdown in infrastructure projects also caused a decrease in the demand for cement in the domestic market over the last one and a half year. The contraction of 10.8% in total sales in 2018 increased to 29.5% at the end of 2019. While the total domestic market sales of the sector were 72.2 million tons in 2017, it decreased to 45.4 million tons in 2019 and the contraction in the domestic market between these two periods had been 37.1%.

After the increase in demand in the construction sector following the decrease in market rates, an improvement in the cement sales in the domestic market had been expected across the sector. However, the high level of housing stock in the construction sector has suppressed the implementation of new projects, as a result, the contraction in the domestic market continued until the end of 2019.

Exports become the salvation

Due to the shrinkage in the domestic market, cement producers of Turkey attached more importance to foreign markets and concentrated further on their export-oriented activities. The exports of the cement sector, which was 7.5 million tons in 2018, increased by 48.0% in 2019 to 11.1 million tons. The export revenue of the sector from cement and clinker, which was 234.1 million USD in 2018, reached 380.5 million USD with an increase of 62.5% in 2019.

While the African countries such as Cameroon, Gana and the Ivory Coasts have been the countries where the sector’s exports were most developed, the USA and Israel markets maintained their position of being the most important markets for the sector. The increase in the export income of the sector continued in the first two months of 2020, and an increase of 42.0% was achieved in export revenues compared to the same period of the previous year.

Despite the contraction in the domestic market, the improvement in exports supported the increase in the overall cement production in the last two months of 2019. Although the production growth of the sector continued in the first two months of 2020, the Covid-19 pandemic experienced worldwide has affected the cement sector negatively as well as many other sectors. While the pandemic adversely affects the industry, both in the domestic market and in the foreign markets, the uncertainty about the duration of this pandemic is also one of the most important problems of the sector.

 

Export Volume- Turkey is the 2nd Cement Exporter in the world

The total export volume of Turkish clinker and cement increased by 68% in 2019 to 23 million tonnes.
The total export value of the Turkish cement sector increased by 44% year on year to US$877m.

Dr. Tamer Saka, who has been re-elected as chairman of the Turkish Cement Manufacturers’ Association (TÇMB), said that the Turkish cement sector is the leader in Europe in terms of cement production and is the second biggest cement exporter in the world.

Saka, who has been chairman of the TÇMB board since July 2019, said after his re-election that Turkey exports cement to more than 100 countries, with the most important markets being the USA, Israel, Ghana and Ivory Coast.

In January 2020 cement exports totalled 1.1 million tonnes, while clinker exports were 1.3 million tonnes.

“Our forecast is that the Turkish cement sector will grow by approximately 2% in domestic sales and 15% in exports this year,” Saka added.

Turkey Introduction

The Republic of Turkey, which is divided into 81 provinces that are grouped into seven regions, spans 783,562 km2 in western Asia and southeast Europe. Turkey’s estimated 2014 population of 82 million is ruled by a president and a prime minister in a democratic constitutional republic.

The EU-Turkey Customs Union has led to an extensive liberalization of tariff rates, making Turkey a major trader with European countries like Germany and the UK. Turkey also started full EU membership negotiations with the European Union (EU) in 2005. Turkey’s cement industry is one of the largest in the world.

Istanbul, which straddles Europe and Asia, is the largest city in the country, while Ankara is the capital.
Turkey is bordered on its northwest by Greece and Bulgaria; north by the Black Sea; northeast by Georgia; east by Armenia, the Azerbaijani exclave of Nakhchivan and Iran; southeast by Iraq; south by Syria and the Mediterranean Sea; and west by the Aegean Sea.
Approximately 70 to 80 percent of the country’s citizens identify as Turkish, while Kurds are the largest minority, at between 15 to 20 percent of the population.

The future of the Cement business in Turkey

Industry outlook

The statistic shows the revenue of the industry “manufacture of cement“ in Turkey from 2011 to 2017, with a forecast to 2023. It is projected that the revenue of manufacture of cement in Turkey will amount to approximately 3,7 billion U.S. Dollars by 2023.

Turkey’s economy

Based on economic standards, Turkey is recognized as an emerging market and is one of the world’s newly industrialized countries, having earned a place in the Group of Twenty, which is a group consisting of the twenty most important economies in the world. Turkey’s economical significance is partially attributed to the country’s growth, especially during the recent global financial recession.

While countries around the world struggled to grow, let alone maintain a balanced economy, Turkey experienced a rather high percentage of gross domestic product growth annually. Additionally, Turkey’s financial sector saw significant improvements, most notably with the country’s inflation, which reached rates lower than those prior to the financial crash and even the lowest in a decade.

With a rapidly growing populace as well as having had one of the fastest growing economies in Europe and the world, Turkey managed to maintain a stable and unchanged unemployment rate over the past decade, with the exception of 2009. However, despite a significant spike in unemployment, Turkey’s competent management helped bring the total unemployment rate to single digits for the first time in many years.
