US Forecast - Spring 2017

PCA has made multiple adjustments, refinements, and new assessments that are incorporated into the final spring forecast.  Collectively, these calibrations result in relatively minor changes in near-term volume and growth projections. Overall, PCA expects cement consumption to reach 3.5% annual growth during 2017-2018.

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 2014-2021. Available in PDF and Excel.
