Project report for Ready mix concrete
The project report for Ready mix concrete is as follows:
The Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) industry in India is in its early stages with cement consumption of just 2-3 per cent of total production. This is evident from the fact that in the West, the RMC consumes 60 per cent of total cement production. However, since the demand for RMC is expected to grow exponentially, cement manufacturers in India such as Ultratech, ACC, Madras Cements, India Cements, Ambuja Cements, among others, have forayed into the business. As the industry grows, it will make aggregate distribution and production more organized as large players are likely to venture into the aggregates business themselves or have a long-term relationship with commercial aggregate companies. The cement companies are able to leverage the RMC market in a better way since cement is one of the essential ingredients in the manufacture of RMC. Of course, acquiring and operating suitable aggregate quarries in India is a difficult task, but since cement companies possess sufficient experience in limestone quarrying will have technical competency of running such captive operations too. ndia is the 2ndlargest cement producer in the world. With an annual production of around 248 million tonnes (mnt), it ranks only behind China as shown in Fig1.Per capita cement consumption is 156 kg (2008) as against world average of 396 kg. (2006). Cement technology and production cost comparable with the best in the world
Product / Services & process
Ready Mix Concrete (RMC) is a special material in which the cement aggregates and other ingredients are weigh-batched at the plant in a central mixer or truck mixer, before delivery to the construction site in a condition ready for placing at the site
Market potential & Strategy
Ready mix concrete has gained acceptance in Indian industry due to several advantages including quality control and overall economy. RMC plants are proliferating, especially in urban regions, not only because of the space restrictions around construction site but also due to the realisation of the advantages by engineers and construction industryThe word ?potential‘ is a much over used phrase when looking at India. As we have seen earlier the infrastructure statistics are of such mind –boggling proportions that it could be said that there is a massive potential for the growth of ready mixed concrete industry. However realising that potential will take a considerabletime as companies come to terms with the unique obstacles presented in the Indian market.he only realistic view that the ready mixed concrete industry can take should be based on long term strategy. The main aim has to be the development of the awareness of the product. Presently that level of awareness is only present in a few isolated pockets and this position is not expected to change drastically in the foreseeable future. This is partly due to the fact that there is no real focus for the industry, in that the few players that exist are located in disparate markets and those that exist in the same markets have differing ideological viewsregarding The product and the business.
