Good cement requires carefully measured and balanced ingredients. A successful cement industry requires similarly balanced ingredients. At the moment a poor housing market, rising prices for construction materials, high unemployment, reduced consumer spending and a stalled economic recovery have blended together to halt growth almost completely. All of the aforementioned factors essentially lead to the same problem for the cement industry - little to no construction.

Current economic conditions are not at all favorable to construction, and in turn, not at all favorable to cement producers. The rising price of construction materials is one of the more troubling omens for the cement industry. Currently, construction materials are expected to go up as much as 6% this year while inflation is only 1%.

Aside from construction materials, the success of the cement industry is often closely connected to the success of the housing industry. Buyer confidence is already low and is being compounded by the expiration of the homebuyer's tax credit.

A litany of detrimental issues plague cement producers at the moment but there is reason for some optimism. While the cement industry may be debt laden at the moment, restructuring and asset selling are helping to lessen money owed and position the industry for a rebound in 2011.
