USGS reports strong 2Q17 for US construction materials
19 September 2017


The US construction materials industry saw output increase by a considerable margin in the 2Q17, reports the US Geological Survey's Mineral Industry Survey. The combined production of construction materials (cement, construction sand and gravel, crushed stone, and gypsum) in 2Q17 was 46 per cent higher compared with that in the 1Q17.

The USGS states that the results were due to cyclical seasonal fluctuations but was slightly lower than that in the second quarter of 2016.
