We present a methodology to assess the profitability of a capital intensive industry over a business cycle and to make projections of profitability for different investment strategies under various hypothetical scenarios for environmental and competition policies. The methodology is applied to the European cement industry over the period 2004©\2012 (Part I) and over the next 10/15 years (Part II) using publicly available data, interviews of financial analysts and industry experts. Nous d¨¦veloppons une m¨¦thodologie pour ¨¦valuer la performance financi¨¨re ex©\post d¡¯un secteur ¨¤ forte intensit¨¦ en capital lors d¡¯un cycle ¨¦conomique et ¨¦tudier la rentabilit¨¦ future de diff¨¦rentes strat¨¦gies d¡¯investissements face ¨¤ diff¨¦rentes politiques de concurrence et environnementale. Cette m¨¦thodologie est appliqu¨¦e au secteur cimentier en Europe respectivement pour la p¨¦riode 2004©\2012 (Partie I) et pour les 10/15 prochaines ann¨¦es (Partie II). Les r¨¦sultats s¡¯appuient sur des donn¨¦es publiques et sur des interviews d¡¯analystes financiers et d¡¯experts du secteur
