Mineral Industry Surveys has released a report on the cement industry in March, providing monthly data on the shipments of cement to final customers and the production of clinker in the United States from January 2015 through March 2016. Data on the imports of cement and clinker for March 2016 are also provided.

Total shipments of portland and blended cement in the United States and Puerto Rico in March 2016 were about 7.5 million t, up by 19.3% from sales in March 2015. The leading producing States for portland and blended cement in March were Texas, California, Missouri, Florida, and Alabama, in descending order. The leading cement-consuming States (Texas, California, Florida, Georgia, and North Carolina, in descending order) received about 42% of the March shipments. Sales for January through March totalled 18.8 million t, up by 14.5% from the volume in the same period in 2015.

Clinker production totalled about 6.0 million t in March 2016, up by 9.8% from the output in March 2015. The leading clinker-producing States in March were, in descending order, Texas, California, Missouri, Florida, and Michigan, and these accounted for 48% of the total output for the month. Production for January through March totalled 16.3 million t, up by 5.6% from the same period in 2015.

Masonry cement shipments of about 236 000 t in March 2016 were up by 22.3% from those of March 2015. The leading masonry-cement-consuming States were, in descending order, Florida, Texas, California, North Carolina, and Georgia; these received almost 55% of March’s shipments. Shipments for January through March 2016 were 574 000 t, up by 17.4% from levels in the same period in 2015.

March 2016 imports of cement and clinker of about 875 000 t were 8.6% higher than in March 2015. Imports for January through March totalled 2.1 million t, up by 20.2% from those of the same period in 2015.
