GREENWICH, Conn. - Sept. 21, 2021 - PRLog -- CW price index for gray cement exports is estimated to remain relatively stable in the third quarter of 3Q2021, decreasing by 0.3 percent quarter-on-quarter and by 0.2 percent compared to the same quarter the previous year, according to the 3Q2021 update of CW Research's Global Cement Trade Price Report (https://www.cwgrp.com/research/research-products/product/1-global-cement-trade-price-report).

In the Mediterranean Basin and Asia-Pacific-Japan, the two largest exporting regions, CW price indices for gray exports are expected to decline in 3Q2021, recording a decrease of almost 1 percent quarter-on-quarter in both regions.

"Turkey, as the world's largest gray cement exporter in 2Q had an increase in both exports volumes and prices, with the average FOB prices increasing around 3 percent QoQ. However, a strong quarterly decrease in 2Q exporting prices in Thailand and Greece, who are among the top 5 global exporters, dragged down average global prices," stated Carolina Pereira, Director at CW Group.

Within the Med Basin region, Greece also saw an increase in export volumes in the second quarter, recording a growth of more than 19 percent compared to the previous quarter.

Exports, however, decreased over 11 percent quarter-on-quarter in the second quarter while FOB prices, on the other hand, saw a rise of over 3 percent.
