In 2018, China's CNBM (China National Building Material Co., Ltd.) nudged past Dublin-based cement producer CRH plc (Cement Roadstone Holdings) to the top of the list of leading cement manufacturers worldwide, reporting 2018 revenue of around 26.8 billion euros (or around 30 billion U.S. dollars).

In 2018, the U.S. production volume of cement came to around 88.5 million metric tons. That year, about 87.8 million metric tons of Portland and masonry cement was produced here.
