Axis Securities Report

In Q1 FY22, cement demand was impacted owing to the lockdown-led restrictions imposed at the state level.

The demand varied in line with varying timelines and stringency of the lockdowns in various states.

While non-trade channel witnessed good demand as various central government projects related to Infra were continuing at good pace, state governments’ projects were partially impacted due to lockdown-led restrictions and partially due to shortage of funds.

Demand from the state government's projects is gaining traction post-market re-opening. However, as per dealers, a speedy revival of these projects stands critical for cement demand moving ahead.

On a positive note, the availability of the workforce was less impacted relative to the conditions over the last year.
