High hopes for cheap coal in Egypt's cement industry

High hopes for cheap coal in Egypt's cement industry

Report summary

As Egypt's cement industry suffers from gas supply cuts and from rising gas prices (jumped from US$ 3/mmbtu in 2011 to US$ 8/mmbtu in 2014), the sector considers switching to imported coal to meet future energy needs. We forecast that the share of coal reaches 60% in the cement sector's fuel mix by 2020, while the share of gas falls from 75% in 2010 to 10% in 2020. In 2030, the industrial sector consumes about 17% less gas due to the fuel switching in the cement industry.
