Heavy rains in Texas and Tropical Storm Colin in Florida may have a detrimental effect on national cement consumption levels in June, according to the PCA Marketing Intelligence team.

Elevated precipitation levels and flooding can delay construction projects, which subsequently impacts cement usage.

Since 2000 Texas and Florida have combined to annually consume roughly 20 per cent of cement demand in the US. While the proportion of these two states’ consumption to the US total is smaller in the summer months, it is consistently over 15 per cent and has increased in recent years.
