Cement Prices in Nigeria 2024: Current Rates and Market Trends Across 36 States


This article delves into the current state of cement prices in Nigeria, highlighting the challenges and market trends impacting affordability.


Challenges in Cement Pricing:

Efforts to stabilize cement prices through agreements between the federal government and manufacturers have faced challenges. The current retail prices, ranging between N8,500 and N10,500, exceed the agreed-upon target of N7,000 to N8,000. This disparity underscores persistent hurdles in making construction materials affordable for Nigerians.


Market Landscape:

Nigeria boasts major cement brands like Dangote, Lafarge, Ibeto, BUA, and UNICEM, dominating the market. Despite their presence, the recent spike in prices places Nigeria in a higher pricing bracket compared to other African countries.


Brand Positioning:

Ibeto and BUA Cement are recognized as more budget-friendly options.

Dangote Cement occupies a mid-range price point.

UNICEM and Lafarge Cement are priced at the higher end of the spectrum.
