Cement prices to rise in second half of FY22: HDFC Securities report

According to the report by HDFC Securities, cement prices are likely to increase during the second half (H2) of FY22 owing to cost inflation.

Cement demand has increased from June 2021 as the Covid-19 pandemic decreases.

The cement demand continues to recover and has supported limited price correction during monsoon, the report says.

According to the report, the prices of cement will continue to rise during H2FY22 as the cost inflation is firming up and has impacted the cement industry. The rising demand and increased consolidation should support the industry's cost pass-through ability.

The report said that the prices of pet coke have increased by 20% quarter-on-quarter basis (QoQ). Imported thermal coal prices have also increased by 33% QoQ. The increasing prices of crude oil have pushed diesel prices by 7% QoQ. The industry has built Rs 80-100 million tonnes input cost inflation and Rs 20-40 million tonnes freight cost rise QoQ.

The brokerage expects aggregate revenue from its coverage to increase by 14% on a year-on-year (YoY) basis on higher volumes in the second quarter (Q2) of FY22.

Indian PM2.5's Oxidative Potential Far Exceeds Europe's

A recent study highlights the significantly higher oxidative potential (OP) of fine particulate matter (PM2.5) in India compared to Europe. PM2.5, tiny particles with a diameter of less than 2.5 micrometres, can penetrate deep into the lungs and even enter the bloodstream, causing various health issues, including respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. The study, conducted by researchers from India and Europe, revealed that the OP of PM2.5 in Indian cities is five times greater than that in European cities.
