Cement Manufacturing in the US

The Cement Manufacturing industry has improved over the current five-year period. Vertical integration increases the efficiency of procurement, production and distribution, while also enabling companies to maintain market share in the highly saturated and competitive cement market. Mergers and acquisitions have also enabled companies to streamline production and reach geographically dispersed markets without the costs of organic growth. A merger between two of the largest global cement manufacturers, Holcim and Lafarge, attests to the significance of concentration in the industry. In the next five years, the industry is expected to experience further consolidation. In addition, operators will benefit from investment in residential and commercial projects and from infrastructure and utilities upgrades.

Operators in this industry manufacture cements, including Portland, natural, masonry, and pozzolanic cements for use in construction. This industry does not produce lime, which is an ingredient in cement, nor does it produce concrete, which uses cement as an input.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
