US Forecast - Summer 2019
Near term projections are largely unchanged since PCA's Spring outlook. Cement consumption is expected to grow 2.3% in 2019 and 1.7% in 2020. Overall, slightly softer economic growth, suggests a gentler interest rate pattern as well as slightly less robust conditions in the labor market. For construction, these factors largely offset each other.
