Oman experiences one of the most attractive supply – demand balance in the region. Even with the expected capacity additions, the industry will not be able to meet projected demand from indigenous supply.
Oman’s recent history indicates that the market (Northern Oman) forms an extension of the UAE cement industry. The imports from the UAE have been both significant and steady over the last years. This is set to continue although the new indigenous capacity may put some pressure on imported cement from UAE in the short term.
Oman’s profitability is at odds with its attractive nature (albeit at reasonable levels). This may be attributed to the competitive pressures imposed on Oman from UAE supported by the absence of significant import taxes or other barriers to imported cement.
Oman may prove a very attractive investment destination if the mooted propensity of the government to open the economy materialise.
Our proprietary analytical tools:
Domestic Capacity Utilisation Factor - DCUF™ - Propensity to export / import.
International Trading Assessment Matrix - ITAM™, Capability to export / import.
Capacity Concentration Balance Index (CCBI™). CCBI™ assesses the potential of each cement plant’s theoretical sales to each statistically available region of a national market, taking into account the plant’s capacity and proximity to consumption centres.
Micro-Market Attractiveness Matrix (MAM™). MAM™ examines statistically available regions for their existing and potential growth prospects.
Industry Structure and Dynamics - ISD™ - Nature of Participants, Consolidation Index, Cost Structure and Industry Profitability.
