AIRPORT-RELATED CEMENT CONSUMPTION OUTLOOK, JULY 2017
In this report, PCA takes a long-run view of potential cement consumption attributed to airports. Future airport related concrete consumption opportunities exist in the form of replacement/repaving of the existing runway system, terminal expansion, and runway expansion. This report expands on each segment of the airport construction sector, what drives demand, how PCA arrived at the size and potential of each market, and provides a baseline and high and low scenario projections for cement consumption. In sum, PCA expects cement consumption in the airports market to approach 2.4 million metric tons by 2040 compared to 1.5 million metric tons currently.
