Prices for cement in Ghana
Ghana’s construction industry continues to grow at a steady pace, a factor that has encouraged both local producers and importers to make future investments in the cement market.
Depreciating currency has led to an increase in the cost of raw materials, which has forced cement producers to raise their prices.
Ghana has a number of cement companies.
