The purpose of this paper is to evaluate the Saudi cement companies’ market share.

The analysis of the production indicators showed that seven Saudi companies had a steady state of production capacity, while the other five companies had an increase in their production capacity.

Research limitations/implications

The research is limited to the Saudi cement companies.

The Saudi cement companies add expenditures annually to update their managerial technologies, production equipment and machinery in plants and processes.


The Saudi cement companies must be creating more competition between the cement companies through the opportunity of developing or acquiring new technologies.
