Expert Answer:

Cement industry requires bulky and heavy raw materials like limestone, silica, alumina and gypsum. Thus, the cement factories are set up near the sources of raw materials.
Apart from raw materials, coal and electric power is needed to provide energy for working of the plants.
Close proximity to rail transportation for supplying the bulky, finished products to the market is another important factor that determine the location of the cement factories.
