Welcome to Dangote Cement Plc


Through our recent investment, Dangote Cement has eliminated Nigeria’s dependence on imported cement and has transformed the nation into a net exporter of cement, serving neighboring countries.

An Emerging Force in Global Cement Production.

Dangote Cement is Africa’s leading cement producer with operations in 10 African countries, and revenues in excess of US$3.5 billion in 2022. We are a fully integrated quarry-to-customer producer with production capacity of up to 51.6 million tonnes per annum (Mta) across Africa as at 2022. We have operational facilities in Cameroon, Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Senegal, Sierra Leone, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia.

Operational Regions

Our business is organised into two strategic regions: Nigeria and Pan-Africa. Each region pursues its business plan in line with the overall corporate strategy set out by the Group’s Board and Executive Management, but mindful of the prevailing conditions in each market.

Nigeria is sub-Saharan Africa’s largest market for cement, consuming more than 28Mt in 2022. From our four factories, all located south of the country’s two main rivers, we can reach every local market in Nigeria with our extensive and market-leading fleet of distribution trucks. In 2022, we sold 17Mt of cement to the domestic market.
Nigeria has substantial limestone deposits and is surrounded by countries that do not have sufficient limestone to make their own cement. Because of this deficiency they must import bulk cement or clinker. In fact, many of the 15 countries in the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), especially those on the coast, are obligatory importers of cement, reliant mainly on imports from outside ECOWAS.

By trading within the ECOWAS region we are able to offer a product that is free of import duties, compared to the non-ECOWAS products the region currently imports.

Because we ourselves import bulk cement into Ghana and clinker into Cameroon, our goal is to substitute these imports for products we make in Nigeria. By manufacturing additional cement in Nigeria, we will increase the capacity utilization of our plants, thereby increasing their efficiency and profitability, which is an obvious benefit to our Nigerian business.
Our Pan-African operations encompass everything outside of Nigeria.

Our operations in West Africa and Central Africa are located in Senegal, Sierra Leone, Ghana, Cameroon and the Republic of Congo. In the coming years we plan to extend our reach with integrated plants and grinding plants in strategic locations. We could also consider increasing the size of our existing integrated and grinding plants.

In the east and south of Africa we have existing or planned operations in Ethiopia, South Africa, Zambia, Tanzania, Kenya and Zimbabwe. All these countries have ample native limestone, so all our facilities there will be integrated factories, with the exception of the Delmas cement milling plant in South Africa.

Countries on Africa’s east coast are to some degree exposed to cheap imports from Pakistan and the Far East. As a result, our strategy is in most cases to site our factories well inland, where pricing is higher and where imported cement would face additional shipping costs to reach the market.
