Brazil: The Brazilian cement association SNIC expects an ‘effective’ recovery in cement sales to come in the second half of 2018. The association forecasts sales to grow by 1 – 2% overall in the year, according to the Valor Econômico newspaper. However, it expects a few months of weak demand before the market starts to change. Cement sales volumes fell by 6.4% year-on-year to 53.8Mt in 2016. The market previously peaked at 71Mt in 2014.
