Ukraine: Cement production has increased by 10.5% year-on-year, to 3.19Mt/yr according to Roman Skilsky, CEO of the Ukrcement cement producers' association. Skilsky expects for the country’s annual cement production to grow by 10% to over 9Mt in 2016 in comments made to Interfax-Ukraine.

Exports of cement grew by 71% to 62,700t in January to March 2016. However, Skilsky attributed the rise to the introduction of various restrictions by key exports markets including Moldova and Belarus. Skilsky also said that the introduction of European standards for cement production in Ukraine could help to restrict counterfeit products on the market.

Dyckerhoff Cement Ukraine, HeidelbergCement Ukraine, Ivano-Frankivskcement, Eurocement-Ukraine, Podilsky Cement, Mykolaivcement and Cement LLC (part of CRH Group) are all members of Ukrcement.
