He noted that while some sectors felt the immediate impact of demonetisation, the cement industry experienced it at a later stage.
However, he expressed hope that efforts for the revival of the country's economy by the government will bring back growth in this sector, which is associated with construction and infrastructure development.
He also said that 2020 is likely to be a volatile period for this sector.
The demand for cement in India has gone up to 400 million tonnes (MT) from 30 MT four decades back.
