CEMENT
(Data in thousand metric tons unless otherwise noted) Domestic Production and Use: In 2010, about 61 million tons of portland cement and 1.8 million tons of masonry cement were produced at102 plants in 36 States. Cement also was produced at two plants in Puerto Rico. Overall production was the lowest since 1982 and reflected continued plant closures and indefinite idlings. Although therate of decline abated significantly, sales volumes in 2010 were the lowest in 27 years and were nearly 59 million tons or 45% below the record level of 2005.

The overall value of sales was about$6.5 billion. Most of the cement was used to make concrete, worth at least $35 billion. About 73% of cement sales went to ready-mixed concrete producers, 12% to concrete product manufacturers, 10% tocontractors (mainly road paving), 2% to building materials dealers, and 3% to other users. In descending order, Texas, California, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Alabama, and Michigan were the six leadingcement-producing States and accounted for about 50% of U.S. production.
