Cement availability grew by 18.1%in 2010 compared to a contraction of 11.1 per cent in the previous year. The increased involvement in the private sector was reflected in the growth of private sector credit for construction purposes by 19.3% during the year.
The construction sector expanded with the acceleration of the ongoing road development projects such as expressways, inter-regional national highways and mega construction projects and urban development projects together with construction of houses and reconstruction work done in newly liberated areas boosted construction activities in the country.

The end of the island's 30-year ethnic war in 2009 has revived economic activity and resulted in an infrastructure building boom. Total cement production rose 16.7 percent to 3,749,005 metric tonnes in 2010 from 3,212,865 MT in 2009.
The country’s housing stock has risen by 26% to 4.9 million units but a key lender to the sector has urged for greater dynamism as there is a shortage of 350,000 units with annual demand increasing by a further 100,000.
