Mongolian cement production meets 90% of the domestic demand. According to the official report, production has been increasing steadily year by year and in 2016 is expected to reach 4.5 million tons. Later this year, two new cement plants will be commissioned – this should not only make Mongolia totally self-sufficient but be able to export surplus cement. National producers are currently studying the possibilities of exporting cement to Russia.

Construction sector experts have commented on the fact that Mongolia looks set to change from an importer to an exporter of cement in the near future. Mongolian cement plants use dry method technology in accordance with international standards. State Secretary D.Nyamkhuu has said: “Because cement is produced in accordance with international standards, we aim to export it”.
