Adani Group Accelerates to Cement Industry's Second Spot with Penna Acquisition Surge

22nd June 2024- Adani Group has rapidly expanded its presence in the cement industry, now ranking as the second-largest player with a total capacity of 75 million tonnes per annum (mtpa). The conglomerate’s growth strategy has largely been through acquisitions, including the recent Rs 10,420 crore purchase of Penna Cement Industries, which adds 10 mtpa to its capacity with an additional 4 mtpa under construction. This acquisition enhances Adani’s footprint in southern India, particularly in Andhra Pradesh and Telangana, regions historically underutilized in terms of cement capacity.

The strategic acquisition of Penna Cement not only bolsters Adani’s production capacity but also includes crucial assets like railway sidings and bulk cement terminals, aligning well with Adani’s logistics capabilities. This move underscores Adani’s ambition to reach a production capacity of 140 mtpa by 2028, positioning itself competitively against industry leader UltraTech Cement, which targets 200 mtpa by the same year.

Looking forward, industry analysts predict that consolidation will drive market share gains and improve profitability through enhanced pricing discipline. Adani Group’s aggressive expansion through both organic growth and strategic acquisitions sets a clear trajectory for its leadership ambitions in India’s cement sector.


Adani Group’s rapid ascent in cement manufacturing underscores its strategic focus on expanding capacity and strengthening market position through strategic acquisitions, paving the way for sustained growth in the industry.
