Cao Jianglin, Board Chairman of CNBM Ltd., believes that the industry will continue to be in the "dual platform period" in 2021, i.e. demand platform period and supply platform period. During the demand platform period, the demand for the building materials industry, especially the cement industry, is expected to remain basic. During the supply platform period, supply improvement is expected to be promoted through supply-side structural reform and carbon emission reduction; overproduction is expected to be addressed through off-peak production, environmental protection production restriction, self-discipline production restriction, etc.; overcapacity is expected to be reduced through strict reduction and replacement, ultra-low emissions, phase-out of 32.5 cement grade, etc.
