An estimated 377 million t of crushed stone was produced and shipped for consumption in the United States in the 2Q16, an increase of 6% compared with that of 2Q15. The estimated production for consumption in the first 6 months of 2016 was 648 million t, an increase of 11% compared with that of the same period of 2015. The estimated U.S. output of construction sand and gravel produced and shipped for consumption in the second quarter of 2016 was 269 million t, an increase of 6% compared with that of 2Q15. The estimated production for consumption in the first 6 months of 2016 was 443 million t, an increase of 8% compared with that of the same period of 2015. An estimated 646 million t of total construction aggregates was produced and shipped for consumption in the United States in the second quarter of 2016, an increase of 6% compared with that of 2Q15. The estimated production for consumption in the first 6 months of 2016 was 1.09 billion t, an increase of 10% compared with that of the same period of 2015. Portland (including blended) cement consumption increased by 3% in 2Q16 compared with that of 2Q15.

Consumption in the first 6 months of 2016 increased by 7% compared with that of the same period of 2015. The estimated production for consumption of crushed stone in 2Q16 increased in six of the nine geographic divisions compared with that sold or used in 2Q15. The largest increases in percentages were recorded in the Mountain and the East North Central divisions. The five leading States, in descending order of production for consumption, were Texas, Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, and North Carolina. Their combined total production for consumption was 116 million t and represented 31% of the U.S. total. The estimated production for consumption of construction sand and gravel in 2Q16 increased in five of the nine geographic divisions compared with that sold or used in 2Q15. The largest increases in percentages were recorded in the Mountain and the South Atlantic divisions. The five leading States, in descending order of production for consumption, were California, Texas, Utah, Michigan, and Minnesota. Their combined total production for consumption was 97.9 million t and represented 36% of the U.S. total.

The estimated production for consumption of construction aggregates in 2Q16 decreased in two of the nine geographic divisions compared with that sold or used in 2Q15. The largest increases in percentages were recorded in the Mountain, South Atlantic, and the East North Central divisions. Production for consumption increased in 25 of the 43 States that were estimated. The five leading States, in descending order of production for consumption, were Texas, California, Michigan, Pennsylvania, and Ohio. Their combined total production for consumption was 179 million t, an increase of 5%, and represented 28% of the U.S. total.
