Cement Sales July 2011













Cement sales were about 10% higher in June 2011 than in May 2011. The shape of the trend suggests that a trough in the cycle is at hand.



The year-on-year percentage change was zero in June 2011, suggesting that cement sales could grow during the second half of 2011.
