Cement & Concrete Products Manufacturers

Cement & Concrete Products Manufacturers

Overview

The 4,100 cement and concrete manufacturers in the US produce cement, concrete, and concrete products for the construction industry. Major product categories include ready-mixed concrete; concrete pipe, brick and block; other types of concrete products (structural products, bridge girders); and cement. Large companies may be vertically integrated and own or lease quarries that contain raw materials (limestone, aggregates). Some large cement manufacturers have downstream concrete production operations.

Seasonal Demand

Demand for cement, concrete, and concrete products is seasonal, and drops during the winter months due to unfavorable weather conditions across much of the US.

Capital-Intensive Operations

Cement manufacturing is capital-intensive and requires a significant investment in plants and equipment.
