This article examines the current prices of white (POP) cement in Nigeria as of this year 2023. White cement, also referred to as POP cement, is used to make white concrete for stylish and aesthetically pleasing building projects as well as building decorations. It hasn’t been utilized as much in Nigeria up until now, but demand is rising as a result of a rise in the need for POP ceilings, pillars, parapets, brightly colored concrete and mortars, as well as pre-cast panels.
In addition, white cement is used to create building decorations in other bright and appealing colours such as red, blue, yellow, and so on. To accomplish this, the cement is simply mixed with colouring agents. Ordinary cement, on the other hand, will produce a dull output due to its natural dull colour. If you are wondering what distinguishes white cement from grey cement, you would be surprised to learn that there is not much difference except for the colour.
White cement is so named because it contains little or no iron or manganese when compared to the regular grey cement. These substances are responsible for the grey colour of ordinary cement. That said, let us now give you the current cost of POP cements in Nigeria today. They are given below.
CURRENT PRICES OF WHITE/POP CEMENT IN NIGERIA 2023
Because white cement is so much more expensive than regular cement, it is not typically employed in everyday construction projects. In Nigeria, a 25kg bag of white/POP cement costs more than a 50kg bag of regular grey cement, that is why the regular cement is more popular for construction works. White cement however, is very good and comes out nicely when used for decorative purposes in building construction so without much ado, let us see how much they cost in today’s market in Nigeria.
The following are the current prices of white cement, also known as POP cement in Nigeria this 2023:
- 5kg small bag of white/POP cement (costs between the price range of ₦1,500 – ₦2,500 in Nigeria today
- 25kg super white/POP cement costs between the price range of ₦7,500 – ₦9,000 in today’s market in Nigeria
- 40kg high quality white/POP cement costs between the price range of ₦12,000 – ₦18,000 currently
- 40kg POP cement costs between the price range of ₦5,500 – ₦6,000 in today’s market.
Nigerian white/POP cement costs differ depending on a number of variables. These include the quantity of the products, the quality and brand of the goods, and the location. The cost of white cement varies from one manufacturer to another, just as there are small variations in the cost of conventional cement among Nigeria’s major producers. In Nigeria, location is a significant factor in determining costs for goods and services, and white or POP cement is no exception. A bag of white or POP cement in Nigeria would undoubtedly cost more in cities like Lagos, Port Harcourt and Abuja than in Bida, Gusau or Ogbomoso.
THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT WHITE OR POP CEMENT IN NIGERIA
Ordinary cement is stronger than white cement, often known as POP cement. And the reason for this is because white cement no longer contains the components that give conventional cement its outstanding strength in order to maintain the colour of the cement. Therefore, even if you are wealthy enough to do so, white cement cannot be used to build a building’s primary structures. It is only used for aesthetic purposes.
Nigerian marketers use several descriptions when selling white cement. Because POP casts are made with it more frequently, some people refer to it as POP cement. Others refer to it as “white cement for tiles” since it is used to fill in gaps left by the installation of tile on walls and floors. Because they all pertain to the same thing, don’t be confused by the variety of names.
In conclusion, it is strongly advised that you just purchase the amount of white cement that you need at a time because it is substantially more expensive than regular cement. You most certainly do not want to find yourself in a situation where you overspend on the white POP cement just to have storage issues later. Your white cement will become worthless after a little period of interaction with nature. So, before going to the market, be sure your estimates are accurate.
