General presentation of Cemex
The Cemex Group is a Mexican company specialising in building materials. Its name is the acronym of Cementos Mexicanos, which literally means Mexican Cement. As you will now understand, Cemex specialises in cement, but also in concrete, which is nothing more than a derivative of cement, and in aggregates.
In terms of the distribution of products offered by Cemex in terms of turnover, the production and sale of cement and concrete are equally split between the production and sale of cement and concrete, which represent a fair share of 40% of turnover. The remainder of its turnover is generated by the sale of aggregates.
It should be noted that the Cemex group is an important group in the construction sector since it has very large market shares in many countries. In particular, it has more than 50% of the market share in Venezuela and 19% of the market share in France. This group is notably ranked first in the world in the concrete sector and third in the cement sector behind Lafarge and Holcim.
Of course, this Mexican company is particularly present in its own country. However, it also achieves a large part of its turnover in the rest of the world. In particular, the company has a strong presence in the United States and Europe. The Cemex group employs more than 70,000 people worldwide.
Cemex is headquartered in Monterry, Mexico, and its shares are listed on the Mexican Stock Exchange, although they are also listed on the NYSE. The Mexican stock market index to which it is linked is the CPI index.
