Building industry to be developed   2008-09-15 - VNS

VINACONEX Cement Factory in Quang Ninh Province, which was inaugurated in April this year, will produce 2.3 million tonnes of cement a year.

VietNamNet Bridge - Vietnam wants to be able to manufacture modern building materials on mass-production lines with advanced technologies by 2015, under a plan to develop the building materials sector to 2020.

The plan, approved by the Prime Minister, stated that the sector must be developed to become a key industry, both sustainable and environmentally-friendly.

The goal is to take advantage of the country’s mineral, technology and labour resources to serve the sector’s development.

The plan also targets that the country can satisfy both domestic consumption and export demands in terms of the quantity, quality, and selection of basic construction materials.

All economic entities are encouraged to produce and trade building materials.

According to the plan, large-scale, highly-automated and mechanised cement factories should be equipped with modern rotary kilns, use limited fuel, and minimise environmental pollution.

The country’s cement output is expected to increase from 59 million tonnes in 2010 to 88.5 million tonnes in 2015 and 112 million tonnes in 2020.

Investment will be focused on the production of building thick, large-size glass, soundproofing glass, insulating glass and floating glass. By 2020, glass output is expected to reach 200 million sq.m.

Unbaked brick production is expected to account for 20-25 per cent of the country’s total building materials output in 2015 and for 30-40 per cent in 2020. By 2020, roofing materials output is expected to reach 224 million sq.m.

The plan also focuses on the development of producing interior paving materials with special features such as anti-condensation, stain-proofing, and deodorisation. Production of industrial timber to replace natural timber, fireproof tiles, and soundproofing and insulating materials is also encouraged.

Vietnam exported building materials to more than 100 countries last year, and grew by 25.7 per cent.

Vietnamese construction materials are being exported to large markets, such as the US, Europe, Japan and Australia.

The construction ministry said that new technologies had improved Vietnam’s competitiveness in the building materials sector.

Local manufacturers are using the latest technologies in production, including nanotechnology and anti-bacterial contamination technology to make porcelain sanitary products.

Manufacturers have also invested in producing large scale construction materials.

Following Vietnam’s accession to the World Trade Organisation, companies began to look for new markets to improve domestic competitiveness and increase export revenue, using different sales channels.
