The general building materials industry has had its share of ups and downs in 2012, as the sputtering economy has kept any significant growth from taking root. Local government budgets remain stretched, which has kept infrastructure projects from materializing at the usual rate. However, the industry could be in-line to benefit from the over-heated rental market as well as low interest rates, which are persuading some people to buy.

Construction employment news has also been mixed, as the industry dropped 2,000 jobs in April, but in year-over-year comparisons the figure was up by about 63,000, according to the Associated General Contractors of America.

Rising input costs have also been a detriment to some companies. Owens Corning is a good example of this, as its 1st quarter margins shark in part due to increased asphalt costs. The company did manage to grow consolidated net sales though, logging a 9% year-over-year increase. USG Corp. also managed to grow its 1st quarter sales, but posted a net loss for the quarter.
