About This Statistic

This statistic shows the worldwide cement production, by major producing countries, from 2011 to 2016. In 2011, cement production in the United States amounted to some 68 million metric tons. Thus, the United States is among the global top 3 cement producers.

Worldwide cement production

China produces the most cement globally by a large margin at estimated 2.35 billion metric tons in 2015, followed by India at just 270 million metric tons in the same year. China currently produces over half of the world’s cement. Global cement production is expected to increase from 3.27 billion metric tons in 2010 to 4.83 billion metric tons in 2030. In China, the cement and concrete industry accumulated 968.35 billion yuan in sales value and 949.57 billion yuan in revenues.

Cement is used to bind material together and is categorized as either non-hydraulic or hydraulic. Hydraulic cements are composed of silicates and oxides which can set and harden even when exposed to water. Cement today is mostly used as stucco for buildings in wet climates, as mortar for applications near sea water, and as part of developments for strong concretes. Cement consumption in the United States dropped after the 2008 economic downturn, down to 71.5 million metric tons in 2009 but consumption has gradually increased since then. In the U.S., most cement is consumed primarily between May and October. In Europe, CRH, a top cement manufacturer headquartered in Ireland, generated 18 billion euros in revenues in 2013.
