Tanzania Cement Production 2015-2021
Tanzania’s cement production reached 6.5 million tonnes (mt) in 2021, 16% more than in 2020 when the estimated cement market demand in Tanzania reached 5.9 million tons, including exports.

The cement industry in Tanzania includes six integrated plants and several grinding facilities with a production capacity of around 11 million tons.

Tanzania’s largest cement producers are Tanzania Portland Cement (Twiga), Tanga Cement (Simba), and Dangote Cement.

Dangote, Africa’s leading cement producer, estimated Tanzania’s total market sales to reach 6.2 mt in 2021.

It also noted that Tanzania’s per capita cement consumption of around 50kg per annum is well below the global average and low even for Africa.

Nonetheless, it indicated that the improving performance of the Tanzanian economy has fueled strong growth in cement demand and the prospects remain favorable, given the linear relationship between economic growth and cement consumption.
