    Domestic cement sales saw 11% yoy/15% mom volume growth in Mar 21, implying an accelerating upward recovery momentum. Industry utilisation rate is further boosted by strong exports, implying that the competitive landscape will remain benign going forward, in our view. We continue to favour SMGR over INTP as the former is much more agile, and together with its deleveraging effort, SMGR will see higher NPAT growth.
