US Forecast, Summer 2016

PCA has made only minor adjustments to its spring cement projections for 2016 and 2017. Moderate growth in residential spending and somewhat slower growth in nonresidential and public construction activity translate into annual cement consumption growth of roughly 4% annually.

This forecast contains analysis and tables for the Economic Forecast, Construction Put-in-Place (billions of 2009$), portland cement consumption (metric tons), and the U.S. Cement Consumption Forecast (metric tons) for years 2013-2020. Available in PDF and Excel.
