INTERCEM will return to the bustling Indonesian capital of Jakarta in 2017 as the city hosts INTERCEM Asia from the 11th – 13th September.
South-East Asia is one of the world’s most talked-about cement producing regions and following recent INTERCEM Asia meetings in Hanoi and Manila, the conference returns to another of the region’s major economic hubs for our 2017 conference.
Indonesia is one of the top eight cement producers in the world and, in recent years, has seen rapid investment by a number of major multi-nationals, progressively increasing production across the country in parallel with capacity expansions at large domestic players. Reports show that national production capacities will almost double from 80m tons per annum in 2016 to 150m in 2017.
The archipelago is home to almost 250 million people and population dynamics recognise a young, ambitious and increasingly urban country, creating long-term demand for cement to provide new infrastructure and housing. However, in the short and medium term (until at least 2030 according to estimates) the dramatic increase in production over the past few years will mean tighter margins and an increased emphasis on exports – a situation repeated in several other national markets in the region.
Throughout the conference sessions, respected speakers will update attendees on developments in Indonesia, South-East Asia and across the globe, considering the implications of overcapacity scenarios and examining export markets, international shipping and trade trends, as well as the latest production developments.
Join Asia's leading independent cement industry conference, INTERCEM Asia, at the Fairmont Jakarta from the 11th – 13th September.
Early Bird booking and further information will be available in early 2017.
